Product Features

For painting on concrete, plaster, filler, bricks and other common building boards. Suitable for both first application and maintenance painting.


Recommended Uses

Wall and ceiling surfaces in dry and wet premises in which the surface is expected to have excellent wear resistance and a high level of hygiene. For example lobbies, staircases, hospital corridors, patient rooms and other facilities in which the surfaces are under major stress.


Coverage

Theoretical coverage: 8-10 m²/l. Practical coverage depends on the application method, conditions, shape and roughness of the surface to be treated.


Thinner

Waterborne


Application Method

spraying, brush, roller


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 1 primer 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 Plus 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 Plus 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.
