APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions
The surface of the concrete must be dry and at least 4 weeks old. Relative humidity of the concrete must be below 97%. During painting work and drying the temperature of the air, surface and paint must be at least 10 ºC, and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %.
Do not apply on wet or non-absorbing substrate.
Preparation
Remove laitance with a sanding machine.
Remove sanding dust.
Priming
Stir Betolux Akva Primer well before use.
Spread non-diluted Primer on the floor with a roller or brush. The amount of the Primer is adequate when it is absorbed into concrete pores and does not leave a varnish-like film on the surface.

Instructions

Consumption varies depending on the surface to be treated and its condition. Absorption is affected e.g. by the surface roughness, moisture content level of timber and porosity. For example, log surface that has been untreated for a long time takes a lot more wood finish than a new surface to be treated.

When calculating the consumption, note that the consumption for round logs is 1.5 times higher than normal. Please also note the corner joints in the surface area.

Rounding up

As the filling rate is usually 90% (space for tinting), it is good to round up the liter amounts and reserve enough of the product so that the work is not interrupted unnecessarily, and colour will be even.
