PAINTING BOUNDARY WALLS

Determining your product requirements
Measure area to which paint is to be applied. Depending on surface to which the product is to be applied, determine which products are needed. (Refer to Product Specifier Tool) Check the Theoretical Spread Rates (TSR) on each of the specified products and see how many coats of each are recommended, then calculate what quantities of each product you will require, remembering to make adjustments for the porosity of each surface. TSRs are based on products applied to smooth, sealed surfaces. (e.g. an unsealed scratch plaster surface will absorb more paint than a sealed smooth one, so allow for a lower spread rate). Check out the specifications on all the top coat choices (referring to the relevant data sheets) and decide which is right for you.TSR = Theoretical Spread Rate | NC = Number of Coats | DT = Drying Time
Boundary Walls - Poor Quality New or Unpainted Plaster
If surface is Poor Quality, New or Unpainted Plaster (Cannot be damp proofed)Surface PreparationBrush plaster to remove loose friable particles. Application MethodApply 1 coat AcrySeal directly to plaster with a brush, roller or airless spray. Allow to dry. Apply 2-3 coats of AquaMatt to the top of walls to achieve 1 mm dry film thickness (See AquaMatt DA Data sheet). Allow to dry. Apply 1 coat AcrylUnder with a brush, roller or airless spray. Allow to dry. Apply 1 or 2 coats of either Luxuriance or Pristina. Note: The application of AcrylUnder will result in a smoother finish of top coats.Related Paintcor ProductsTSR = Theoretical Spread Rate | NC = Number of Coats | DT = Drying TimeUndercoat / PreparationAcrySeal - TSR: 10 - 15m² per litre | NC: 1 Coat | AM: Brush, Roller or Spray | DT: @ 25°C – 30 minutesAcrylUnder - TSR: 5 - 6m² per litre | NC: 1 Coat | AM: Brush, Roller or Spray | DT: @ 25°C – 30 minutesAquaMatt - TSR: 0.5m² per litre @ 1mm film thickness | NC: 3 coats or until the product is all used up | AM: Brush or Roller | DT: @ 25°C – 30 minutes ± 150?m film thicknessTop Coat ChoicesLuxuriance - TSR: 8 - 9m² per litre | NC: 2 Coats | AM: Brush, Roller or Spray | DT: @ 25°C ±30 minutesPristina - TSR: New Plaster: 4 - 5m² per litre.

Boundary Walls - Good Quality New or Unpainted Plaster
If surface is Good Quality, New or Unpainted Plaster (Can be damp proofed)Surface PreparationEnsure plaster is dry and of good quality. Use a dry brush to remove loose particles. Application MethodApply 2 coats KlinkaSeal, (wet on wet), to all plastered areas, (side, top and bottom edge), of the boundary wall. Allow a minimum of 48 hours to dry at 25°C. Apply 1 coat of of Paintcor’s PlasterPrime to entire wall. Allow to dry. Apply 2 to 3 coats AquaMatt, (Fibre Reinforced Waterproof Coating), to achieve approximately 1mm dry film thickness to the top of the boundary wall. Allow to dry between coats. Finally apply 2 top coats of your choice to the boundary wall, (sides and top). High Quality top coats such as Elegance Matt or Elegance Silk can now be used if so desired. Allow to dry between coats.Related Paintcor ProductsTSR = Theoretical Spread Rate | NC = Number of Coats | DT = Drying TimeUndercoat / PreparationKlinkaSeal - TSR: 15m² per litre | NC: 2 Coats | AM: Brush, Roller or Spray | DT: @ 25°C – 30 minutesPlasterPrime - TSR: 12 - 15m² per litre | NC: 1 Coat | AM: Brush, Roller or Spray | DT: @ 25°C– 1 hour Touch Dry. @ 25°C – 6 hours Dry ready for OvercoatingAquaMatt - TSR: 0.5m² per litre @ 1mm film thickness | NC: 3 coats or until the product is all used up | AM: Brush or Roller | DT: @ 25°C – 30 minutes ± 150?m film thicknessAcrylUnder - TSR: 5 - 6m² per litre | NC: 1 Coat | AM: Brush, Roller or Spray | DT: @ 25°C – 30 minutesTop Coat ChoicesEleganceMatt - TSR: 8 - 10m² per litre | NC: 2 Coats minimum | AM: Brush, Roller or Spray | DT: @ 25°C ±25 minutesEleganceSilk - TSR: 8 - 10m² per litre | NC: 2 Coats minimum | AM: Brush, Roller or Spray | DT: @ 25°C ±25 minutesLuxuriance - TSR: 8 - 9m² per litre | NC: 2 Coats | AM: Brush, Roller or Spray | DT: @ 25°C ±30 minutesPristina - TSR: New Plaster: 4 - 5m² per litre.

Boundary Walls - Previously Painted Plaster
If Previously Painted Plaster (Cannot be damp proofed)Surface PreparationRemove all loose peeling paint. Remove damaged plaster (if any). Replaster with AcryLatex / plaster mix (see Plastering and Replastering tutorial) Prime exposed plaster with 1 coat of DampPrime, diluted with 10% turps. Allow 24 hours to dry. Now apply a 2nd UNDILUTED coat of DampPrime to the surface. Allow 24 hours to dry. Repair all cracks and blemishes with FlashPatch Exterior crack filler. Smooth off before drying. Spot prime all plaster repairs with 1 coat of PlasterPrime. Allow to dry. Waterproof top of boundary wall with AquaMatt. Apply numerous coats of AquaMatt to achieve 1mm dry film thickness. Measure area of tops of walls: Rule of thumb: if 5m2 then 10 litres of AquaMatt will be necessary. Apply till all AquaMatt is used up. Allow to dry for 1 hour between coats. Finally apply 2 coats of Luxuriance or Pristina. These products will allow the wall to breathe to a certain extent. Allow to dry between coats.Related Paintcor ProductsTSR = Theoretical Spread Rate | NC = Number of Coats | DT = Drying TimeUndercoat / PreparationKlinkaSeal - TSR: 15m² per litre | NC: 2 Coats | AM: Brush, Roller or Spray | DT: @ 25°C – 30 minutesPlasterPrime - TSR: 12 - 15m² per litre | NC: 1 Coat | AM: Brush, Roller or Spray | DT: @ 25°C– 1 hour Touch Dry. @ 25°C – 6 hours Dry ready for OvercoatingAquaMatt - TSR: 0.5m² per litre @ 1mm film thickness | NC: 3 coats or until the product is all used up | AM: Brush or Roller | DT: @ 25°C – 30 minutes ± 150?m film thicknessAcrylUnder - TSR: 5 - 6m² per litre | NC: 1 Coat | AM: Brush, Roller or Spray | DT: @ 25°C – 30 minutesDampPrime - TSR: 8m² per litre | NC: 2 Coats | AM: Brush or Roller | DT: @ 25°C – 24 hoursFlashPatch - TSR: N/A | NC: N/A | AM: Trowel or Scraper | DT: @ 25°C – 1 hourAcryLatex - TSR: N/A | NC: N/A | AM: Brush, Roller or Spray | DT: @ 25°C – 24 hours | Dillution: 1:1 with waterTop Coat ChoicesLuxuriance - TSR: 8 - 9m² per litre | NC: 2 Coats | AM: Brush, Roller or Spray | DT: @ 25°C ±30 minutesPristina - TSR: New Plaster: 4 - 5m² per litre.
