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 the paint film will be dry before the evening dew. Do not paint under the risk of rain.

Clean the surfaces from dirt, dust, moss and lichen. Use high pressure washer, avoiding damaging the substrate and structures. Wash roofs with ClimateCooler Cleaner solution according to instructions if needed.
Applicable national health and safety precautions must be followed in the treatment of substrates containing asbestos.
Priming
Mix the primer carefully before use.

Apply wet film thickness 150 – 175 µm in one coat: The primer can be thinned 5 -10 % with water according to the porosity of the substrate.


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.
