Facade Silicate Primer
Product DescriptionColourless silicate primer for mineral substrates. Bonds with the substrate and is used prior to treatment with Flügger Facade Silicate.
- Mineral substrate
- Improves adhesion
- Only for Silicate
UsageNew, untreated mineral facades such as lime render, lime cement render, cement render and substrates previously treated with silicate paint.
SubstrateMust be clean, dry, firm and suitable for surface treatment.
The surface must be completely dry containing no heavy chalking and efflorescence.
New, untreated mineral substrates and putty must be cured for at least 4 weeks before treatment.
Thinly plastered bricks must not be treated for at least 2 years at the earliest.
Leaching of salts and other water-soluble components must be completed.
Rising ground moisture or moisture from cracks, protrusions such as water traps, uncovered wall coping or other constructions details must not be permitted.
TreatmentRemove precipitates, loose material and paint by washing and cleaning.
Dirt, grease and contaminants should be removed using Façade Clean.
Algae, mould and mould growth are removed by cleaning with Façade Algae Remover.
Larger cracks and other damage must be filled with lime/cement based material.
ApplicationBrush or roller.
Decide on your mode of application according to the desired finish.
Apply uniformly wet on wet, finish by brushing in the same direction.
Remove all runner rugs/curtains
Cold / heat can affect the viscosity of the material.
Condensation must be prevented during drying/curing.
Avoid working in direct sunlight and on very hot surfaces.
Cold and increased humidity extends drying time, full curing and recoating interval.
Increased temperature and low atmospheric humidity reduce drying time and full curing.
Always test adhesion and result before hanging.
Be AwareAlways dilute silicate primer 1:1 before using for priming and diluting silicate paint.
Protect freshly painted surface from adverse weather conditions.
Take appropriate measures against the effects of moisture and rainfall on freshly painted surfaces.
The surface achieves maximum robustness when fully cured.
Cover window glass, metal etc, as spattering has a dulling effect.
Environmental informationClean off the paint from tools and wash them with water. Bring remains of fluent paint to the local recycling centre. Minimize your paint waste by pre-estimating how much paint you need. Keep the leftover paint for future use so you can effectively reduce the environmental impact.
Storage: Cool, frost-free, and tightly closed
