Description

A two-component tinted lime cement coating (component A is in dry and component B in wet form). Forms a highly water- and water-vapor-permeable inorganic surface.


Product Features

For coating concrete, lime cement rendered, calcium-silicate brick, light gravel block, aerated concrete (siporex), red brick and similar aggregate surfaces in accordance with the instructions for use.


Recommended Uses

Residential, commercial, industrial and storage buildings etc.


Coverage

2–5 kg/m²/two treatments. Coverage varies depending on the roughness and porosity of the surface and the application method.


Application Conditions

The temperature of the air, coating and substrate must be at least +5 °C. Do not apply the coating in hot weather, when the site is exposed to direct sunlight, during rain or when rain is expected shortly.


Surface preparation

Unpainted surfaces: The surface has to be undamaged, hardened, clean and absorbent. The hardening time is affected by, e.g., the composition of the substrate (e.g. lime-concrete ratio), environmental conditions and the thickness of the layer. Clean the unpainted surfaces of any dirt, dust and salt. Surfaces with mold, moss etc. are cleaned with Tikkurila Homeenpoisto in accordance with the instructions. Smooth, glassy concrete surfaces must always be treated mechanically to create an appropriate surface profile and remove any laitance. Concrete surfaces with a lot of pores are recommended to be leveled with Finnseco Polytop mortar or Finnseco Leveling Render. Previously painted surface: Surfaces are cleaned by removing any dirt, dust or salt. Surfaces with mold, moss etc. are cleaned with Tikkurila Homeenpoisto in accordance with the instructions. Remove any flaking, chalky and poorly adhering paint coats. Choose the removal method according to the strength of the substrate and type of paint to be removed (e.g. wire brush, pressure washing with hot water or wet sand-blasting). Perform the required repairs, patching and leveling with Finnseco products according to their instructions. Where necessary, patch the rendering to the level of the surrounding surface and structure with appropriate rendering mortar. Moisturize the substrate approx. 1–2 hours before starting work. Do not apply coating onto a wet and/or non-absorbent substrate.


Painting

First coat:

Moisten the substrate carefully two hours before application. Do not apply the material on a wet and/or non-absorbing substrate. To avoid overlapping reserve enough coating for the entire area. Plan the work carefully e.g. by determining the location of working joints in advance. Place the working joints in corners, down pipes or in alignment with windows. Mix the dry component (component A) to the wet component (component B) and add water until the correct application consistency is achieved. Leave for approx. 10 minutes and mix thoroughly before use. NOTE! Each portion mixed must be thinned with exactly the same amount of water and mixed for exactly the same time to avoid colour differences. White sublimate may occur in the finished coating due to the migration of water-soluble lime salts released from cement and lime. Make a test application to check that the colour and the finish are correct. Treat the surface with water during and after the treatment. Spraying: A coloured product is ready for use without thinning, whereas a light-coloured product may require adding water to find the right spraying viscosity. Conventional funnel (gravity-fed) or plaster spray guns are best suited for the work. The colour and structure of the coating vary depending on the consistency of the material, absorbing capacity of the substrate, nozzle size, amount of atomizing air and spraying distance. If the spraying takes place too near or if the material is too watery the surface will be uneven. Always apply two coats of Finnseco KS. To obtain an even surface apply the finishing coat from a cage truck. If scaffolding is used the finished surface may show shadows of the parts of the scaffolding. Also the marks caused by the fixing points of the scaffolding on the wall surfaces are difficult to repair. Brush and roller application: Thin with approx. 1.5-2 litres of water/portion (40 kg). The use of a plaster brush is recommended. The best brushing result is achieved by spraying the material on the substrate and by brushing the surface with a stiff bristle plaster brush.


Maintenance Painting:

Surfaces treated with Finnseco KS lime cement coating can be maintenance painted with Finnseco KS lime cement coating, Finngard Silicate Paint, Finngard Silicone Resin Paint, Kivitex silicate paint or Kivisil façade paint.


Maintenance Instructions

Dirty surfaces can be carefully washed with a pressure washer without any detergent no earlier than one month after painting. The washing may leave permanent marks on the surface, so wash a logical area following the lines of the structure in order to avoid leaving conspicuous edges. Clean dry, loose dirt lightly with a soft brush, without rubbing the surface. Remove alga or mold with Tikkurila Homeenpoisto (Mold Removal) and rinse thoroughly. NOTE! Surfaces must always be retreated after mold removal.


Tintable coating for demanding applications

Finnseco KS is tinted with the Finngard tinting system, which ensures excellent weather resistance for the colors.

Highly water and water vapor permeable

Finnseco KS forms a highly water and water vapor permeable inorganic surface.

Quick and cost-effective coating

Finnseco KS is touch-dry in about 1-2 hours and can be retreated the next day.
