APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions
The surface to be painted must be solid and dry, air temperature at least +8C and relative humidity of the air below 80 %. Schedule the painting work so that paint film will be dry before the evening dew. Do not paint under the risk of rain.
Preparation
Clean the surfaces from dirt, dust, moss and lichen. Use high pressure washer, avoiding damaging the substrate and structures.
Applicable national health and safety precautions must be followed in the treatment of substrates containing asbestos.
Priming
Use ClimateCooler Uni Primer on top of concrete roof tiles, fiber cement sheets or primed steel sheet.
Use ClimateCooler Flex Primer on top of bitumen or fiber cement sheets.
Finishing
Mix the paint carefully before use.

Apply one or two coats of ClimateCooler Catalyst, total wet film thickness 200-225 µm.

Note! Check the condition of the roof before starting the work.
The product contains film protecting agents, therefore rainwater flowing from the roof is not recommended to be used for watering plants or washing during the first year from painting.
Cleaning of tools
Clean tools with water. Slightly hardened tools can be cleaned with Pensselipesu Tool Cleaner.
Maintenance instructions
Handle the painted surface with care. The surface achieves its final hardness and durability within approx. 4 weeks.
Earliest after 1 month of application the surface can be cleaned with ClimateCooler Cleaner (mixing ratio 1 part of cleaner in 50 parts of water).
Maintenance treatment
Surfaces painted with ClimateCooler Catalyst should be maintenance painted with the same system.
