Facade Universal

Product Description

  • Full-matt oil emulsion paint that gives a diffusion-open surface with good weather resistance.
  • Optimal product selection when choosing to forego total cleaning of previously painted substrates.
  • Prevents the formation of mould and mould growth on the surface.

Unique Features

  • Flat “chalky” effect
  • The best solution on a weakly-bound undercoat
  • Diffusion-open

Environmental Information

Protection equipment for: Spray painting: painting suit, full face mask with combined filter. Painting: eye protection, gloves. Sanding: respiratory protection.
Environment information: Clean off the paint from tools and wash them with water. Bring remains of fluent paint to the local recycling centre. Minimize your paint waste by pre-estimating how much paint you need. Keep the leftover paint for future use so you can effectively reduce the environmental impact.

Usage

  • New, untreated mineral facades such as cement plaster and previously painted substrates.

Preparation

Substrate
Must be clean, dry, firm and suitable for surface treatment. The surface must be completely dry containing no efflorescence. Rising ground moisture or moisture from cracks, protrusions such as water traps, uncovered wall coping or other constructions details must not be permitted. New, cement-based surfaces must be cured for at least 4 weeks before undergoing treatment. Leaching of salts and other water-soluble components must not occur. Cement-bound surfaces must be treated at the earliest after 4 weeks, brick at the earliest after 2 years. Not used for substrates joined or plastered with pure lime mortar.

Treatment

  • Remove precipitates, loose material and paint by washing and cleaning.
  • Dirt, grease and contaminants should be removed using Façade Clean.
  • Algae, mould and mould growth are removed by cleaningwith Façade Algae Remover.
  • Larger cracks and other damage must be filled with cement-bound material.
  • Prime new substrates and light chalking or absorbent surfaces using Flügger Facade Primer.
  • Treat two or more times for optimal durability.
Washability

Application

  • Brush, roller or spray gun.
  • Decide on your mode of application according to the desired finish.
  • Apply uniformly wet on wet, finish by brushing in the same direction.
  • Always use the same batch no. on contiguous/unbroken surfaces.
  • Cold / heat can affect the viscosity of the material.
  • Material temperature for spray painting, min. 15°C.
  • Condensation must be prevented during drying/curing.
  • Avoid working in direct sunlight.
  • Cold and increased humidity extends drying time, full curing and recoating interval.
  • Increased temperature and low atmospheric humidity reduce drying time and full curing.
  • Always test adhesion and result before hanging.
