Approximately 6 m2/lit per coat on a smooth substrate; on rough surfaces correspondingly more.
Values for coverage are to be used as a guide only, variation in quantity needed will depend on the porosity of the surface to be painted.
Limewash Prep-Coat can be sprayed, rolled or brushed on. The surface should have equal suction or been prepared to have equal suction to prevent "ghosting" if a regular finish is desired.
At +20°C (+68°F) and 65% rel. Humidity surface dry and re-coatable after 4 – 6 hours. Fully dried and cured after approx. 3 days. At lower temperatures and higher humidity, these times are longer.
The paint is ready to use and only needs to be stirred well. It can be painted, rolled or sprayed. First paint the ceiling, then the walls. To avoid visible lines, start at the window and brush away from the light.
On walls with patching, stark colour variations or other inconsistencies we recommend to apply two coats of Limewash Prep-Coat. The first coat can be diluted with up to 10% clean water. Apply the last coat always undiluted.
Apply the paint evenly in varying directions, working wet on wet, in a single application.
Clean working tools with water after use.
Do not use below +5°C (+41°F)
