Timantti paints are a range of professional grade waterborne acrylate paints designed for walls and ceilings in dry and humid conditions indoors, where good washability and abrasion resistance is required, e.g. in kitchens, bathrooms, halls, staircases, kindergartens, schools, hospitals, food processing premises and other similar facilities. All products are mildew-resistant.
Available in Matt(Timantti 7), Semi-matt(Timantti 20) and Semi-gloss(Timantti 40).
All these paints can be applied to primed concrete, plaster, filler, brick, and building board surfaces according to the painting directions. The paints are also suitable for repainting old alkyd and dispersion paint coats
A coating system for wet rooms using Timantti 20 with Timantti W moisture sealer has been approved by the Swedish painting industry Måleribranschens Våtrumskontroll (MVK).
Clean the surface from dirt and dust. Wash previously painted and dirty surfaces with RENSA SUPER paint cleaner. Matt down hard or gloss surfaces by sanding and thereafter remove the dust. To smooth surface irregularities, choose a suitable filler. Once the filler is dry, sand down and remove the dust.
Humid Areas - Prime concrete, plaster, stopper, brick, and building board surfaces with Timantti W moisture sealer according to the directions for use.
In Dry Areas - Prime the surfaces previously mentioned with Timantti 3 Primer. Steel surfaces need to be primed with anticorrosive paint. Prime galvanized surfaces with Timantti 3 Primer. Before use stir the paint thoroughly. The paint can be diluted with water, if required, but dilution may impair the coverage of the paint. Apply by roller, spray or brush. Recommended nozzle size for airless spray is 0.017 - 0.021".
The surface to be painted must be dry. During the application and drying period the temperature of the ambient air, the surface and the paint shall be above +5 °C and the relative air humidity below 80 %. Drying is faster in low air humidity and/or above + 21 °C. Application will be easier if air is humidified and/or temperature is lowered in the working space. Ventilation after the painting will quicken the drying.
The final forming of the paint film takes about 4 weeks under normal circumstances and after that the ultimate durability and hardness is reached. Before this the painted surface must be treated with care. The painted surface can be cleaned by wiping with a neutral (pH 6 - 8) detergent. For very dirty surfaces alkalescent (pH 8 - 10) detergents can also be used. Detergent and dirt are removed by wiping and/or rinsing the surface with clean water. Use a cleaning cloth, soft sponge or similar for cleaning. Avoid coarse brushing or heavy abrasion. Follow the dilution and other instructions of the detergent producer when using detergents.
