Colour Range
The colours from the Tikkurila "Facade" colour card and selected colours from the NCS and RAL. It is recommended to perform the appropriate colour sample on the area. 1-2 m2. When choosing colours for facades, especially those exposed to intense sunlight, which can significantly heat up the surface recommend the use of colour with a higher reflectance. We recommend the use of colour whose reflectivity is greater than 20%. Light reflectance values are given in the Tikkurila " Facade" colour card

Coverage
4-8 m2/l per one coat, depending on the absorbency and structure of the substrate, application method and painting tool used. Attempt to determine the performance for a given substrate. Make test painting in order to determine the coverage of the substrate.
Can sizes
0,9 l; 2,7 l; 9 l
Application method

Roller, spray or brush. 

When using airless spray use nozzle with parameters 0,015”-0,018”.

Drying time at 23°C and 50% relative air humidity

In temp. +23 ±2°C, and relative air humidity 50 ±5%, the surface is dry after up to 2 hours. Apply next coat after min. 8 hours. The drying times and recoating depends on film thickness, temperature, relative humidity during painting.

APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions
Work at air and substrate temp. not lower than +5°C and not higher than +25°C. Avoid direct sunlight, relative humidity> 80%, rain and frost. Protect the paint coating from rain for min. 48 hours - the optimum temperature and humidity conditions (temperature +20°C, relative humidity below 55%). This interval under conditions of elevated humidity and lower temperatures of air and ground may be extended.
Preparation
The substrate must be carrying, dry and clean. Humidity of painted substrates should not exceed 4%. Products can be applied min. 16 hours after priming with Tikkurila Finngard Nanoprimer. The product is suitable for use in commercial form, and before use requires careful mixing. Apply two coats in min. 8 hours intervals. In order to avoid streaking and discoloration apply the paint in continuously way. Technological breaks schedule at the edges of the walls. Provide adequate amount of paint from one production batch. The paint from different batches should be mixed before use. Do not apply on lime coatings and distemper paint.
Diluting
If necessary, thin the paint Tikkurila Finngard Concrete for painting of the first coat with water up to max. 20%.
Painting
Previously not painted:

The surfaces of new cement-lime, cement and concrete seasoned min. 4 weeks. Remove loose parts of the ground, dirt, greasy stains and salt efflorescence. Remove algae, lichens and fungi. Wash the facade with water at high pressure. Unevenness and cracks equalize with mortar with composition similar to the original. Prime the surface with Tikkurila Finngard Nanoprimer, Tikkurila Finngard Primer W (recommended as a product that can restrict the appearance of salt efflorescence on the surface topcoat).

Surfaces previously painted:

Remove loose and loose material substrate, peeling paint, dirt, greasy stains and salt efflorescence. Wash the facade with water at high pressure. Permanently remove algae, lichens and fungi. Remove the chalky substrate (eg. by blasting). Unevenness  and cracks equalize with mortar with composition similar to the original.  Prime the surface with Tikkurila Finngard Nanoprimer. Before the renovation of old coatings should be performed test application that will assess the adhesion of the new paint to the painted surface, eg. by cross-cut and allow for evaluation of the appearance and color of the coating. A positive result determines the use of the product.

Cleaning of tools
Before washing tools should be thoroughly wiped in order to remove as much paint. Clean tools with water immediately after the completion of the work.

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.
