SURFACES-
PREPARATION

Organic substrates: Allow completely freshly plastered walls to dry for at least six months before painting. In general, the surface must be dry, clean, stable, free of grease and free of contamination and separating substances such as sinter layers, resins, waxes, oils, release agents, etc. The substrate or old paint to be coated must be checked for compatibility with the new material.

See also VOB, DIN 18363, part C, paragraph 3, painting and varnishing work.

Old coatings: Check whether they can be painted over or are compatible with the new coating. If necessary, carry out an adhesive tape test and a paint test. Loose, peeling and cracked old paint as well as old distemper paint must be completely removed down to the stable surface. Glossy old coats of paint must be roughened beforehand. Before painting with Absolut Matt Emulsion, treat the surface with Little Greene Wall Primer Sealer.

It is recommended to apply the primer crosswise with a brush so that the liquid penetrates optimally into the surface material and seals it. Finally, apply two full coats.

This product is not suitable for painting on silicate and lime plaster. Painter's fleece should be pre-treated with Little Greene Wallprimer Sealer before applying a coat of Little Greene Intelligent Primer Undercoat and then the final coat. Woodchip should be pre-painted with a conventional filling emulsion paint so that the seams of the wallpaper are filled and the absorbency is stopped.

Be sure to allow drying times between coats. For a fundamental change of color, a prime coat of Little Greene Intelligent Primer Undercoat is recommended.


APPLICATION

Stir well before use. Do not apply to surfaces if the temperature during painting or drying is below 5°C.

Brush: Use a high quality plastic bristle brush of the appropriate size for the project. New brushes should be washed in clean water and dried thoroughly with a clean, lint-free cloth.

Do not immerse the brush too deeply in the paint so that the paint does not get under the clamping ring. Avoid drips and splashes by not picking up too much paint with the brush. Apply paint evenly and only expand the painting area so that areas that are still damp can still be applied. For best results, always apply the final brush strokes in the same direction and never paint over paint that has already begun to dry.

For nested objects or locations where high ambient temperatures/strong air currents cannot be avoided, the open time can be increased by adding 10 to 15% (v/v) of an appropriate gradient optimizer. This is also recommended for large flat surfaces, although in such cases the use of a paint roller is recommended.

Roller: For best results on smooth surfaces, use a short-pile fur roller. For textured surfaces, use a longer-nap roller as needed to achieve even and thorough coverage. Always carry out the last roller movements in the same direction and connect to the damp areas.

Never paint over paint that has already begun to dry, as this will result in visible overlapping and streaking.

Pressure at nozzle: 12.6 to 19.6 MPa (1800 to 2800 psi)


CLEANUP

The work materials should be cleaned with water immediately after use. Never store brushes and rollers in water as this will impair their application performance.


STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE

Store unused paint in a cool, dry, frost-free place and away from direct sunlight. Ensure closures are securely and correctly closed after use.
If unopened and stored under the above conditions, this product has a shelf life of at least two years.


AFTERTREATMENT AND CARE

Cleaning: For light soiling, use a diluted, lukewarm dishwashing detergent solution and a clean sponge or lint-free cloth.

Make sure the sponge or cloth is well moistened (but not wet) and wipe the affected area several times if necessary. To prevent general dirt build-up, ensure that your house/apartment is always well ventilated when you engage in activities such as cooking that result in oil or grease build-up. Dust generated by renovation work is best picked up immediately on site or with a vacuum cleaner.

To avoid scratches and streaks, always use a soft brush attachment when vacuuming adjacent surfaces.


DISPOSAL AND RECYCLING

Excess paint may only be disposed of through a certified waste disposal company. Empty metal containers can be recycled (remove plastic handle from 2.5L and 5L containers).

Precautions

Always read the instructions on the can before use. Ensure good ventilation during application and drying. For more information this
Observe the safety data sheet.
