Surface preparation:

  • All loose, flaking and unstable material must be identified and then thoroughly removed using stiff brushes and broad bladed scrapers to get back to a sound edge; these edges should then be feathered in. Ensure that any paint materials left remaining and the underlying substrate is sound and adhering well. Any gloss or shiny surfaces should be thoroughly flatted down using sand or emery paper to create a good key.
  • Any cracks, or where there is a need to equalise the surface should be filled using Keim Dolomitspachtel, a ready to use silicate mineral filler, brush or trowel applied to a pre-wetted surface and dressed back to the required level. On new surfaces, a period of at least 15 days should elapse prior to the application of Keim Paints.
