General Preparation Considerations for all Surfaces

The key to optimum performance with Keim products is preparation prior to decoration.

  • Remove flaking and unstable material back to a sound edge.
  • Check that any remaining coatings are stable and feather the edges with sand paper.
  • Flat down any shiny surfaces with sandpaper to create a good key
  • Remove any Mould and Fungal growth and treat the affected area with Keim Algicid.
  • Cracks should be repaired with Keim Dolomitspachtel filler.
  • Ensure air and surface temperatures are between 5-30ºC

Any new/repaired areas must be allowed to dry out for a minimum period of 15 days prior to the application of Keim Mineral Paints.

Clean all surfaces with clean cold water to remove dirt, dust and contaminants. leave surfaces dry naturally.

Please note: Consumption rates are offered for guideline purposes only. For more accurate measures, site trials should be conducted.
