Storage

Must be protected from frost. Store in a dry and cool place, definitely protected from sunlight. Close the can carefully for the next use. Tinted paint or opened container does not withstand long-term storage.


Application Conditions

The surface to be painted must be dry, the temperature of the air at least +10 °C and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %.


Surface preparation

Unpainted surfaces: Remove dirt and dust from the unpainted surfaces. Fill the surfaces with a suitable Presto or Prestonit filler, if needed, and sand the dried surface. Remove the sanding dust. Prime with Ässä 1primer or Luja Universal Primer. Previously painted surfaces: Wash previously painted surfaces with Cleaning Agent (Maalipesu) according to instructions for use and let dry. Remove loose, flaking paint. Sand painted surfaces. Fill any holes and cracks and smooth the surfaces with suitable Presto or Prestonit Filler. Paint the smoothed areas with Ässä 1 Primer or Luja Universal Primer.


Painting

First coat:

Stir Argentum 20 well before use. Apply 1–2 layers with a roller, brush or spray gun.


Maintenance Painting:

A treated surface maintains its functionality for the maintenance painting interval of the paint film. Surfaces treated with Argentum 20 must be maintenance-treated with the same product so that they maintain their properties. The surface will lose its special properties if it is treated with other products.


Maintenance Instructions

After painting, surfaces must be handled with care for a few weeks as the product will reach its final hardness and durability under normal conditions after about a month. If you must clean the surfaces soon after surface treatment, clean them lightly using a soft brush or a damp cloth. Clean the surface using neutral (pH 6–8) detergent solution with a damp cloth, sponge or brush. Clean soiled surfaces using mild alkaline (pH 8–10) detergent solution. Rinse the surface carefully after cleaning. The thinning instructions of the detergent manufacturer must be followed when mixing the solution.
