Facade Universal

Facade Universal

Flügger Facade is products for exterior treatment of mineral substrates. Provides a diffusion-open, weather-resistant surface.

Product Description

Full-matt oil emulsion paint that gives a diffusion-open surface with good weather resistance. Optimal product selection when choosing to forego total cleaning of previously painted substrates. Prevents the formation of mould and mould growth on the surface.
  • Flat “chalky” effect
  • The best solution on a weakly-bound undercoat
  • Diffusion-open

Usage

New, untreated mineral facades such as cement plaster, lime mortar plaster, thin-plastered bricks and previously painted substrates.

Substrate

Must be clean, dry, firm and suitable for surface treatment.
The surface must be completely dry containing no efflorescence.
Rising ground moisture or moisture from cracks, protrusions such as water traps, uncovered wall coping or other constructions details must not be permitted.
New, cement-based surfaces must be cured for at least 4 weeks before undergoing treatment.
Leaching of salts and other water-soluble components must not occur.
Cement-bound surfaces must be treated at the earliest after 4 weeks, brick at the earliest after 2 years.
Not used for substrates joined or plastered with pure lime mortar.

Treatment

Remove precipitates, loose material and paint by washing and cleaning.
Dirt, grease and chalking material should be removed using Façade Clean.
Algae, mould and mould growth are removed by cleaningwith Façade Algae Remover.
Larger cracks and other damage must be filled with cement-bound material.
Prime new substrates and light chalking or absorbent surfaces using Flügger Facade Primer.
Treat two or more times for optimal durability.

Application

Brush, roller or spray gun.
Decide on your mode of application according to the desired finish.
Apply uniformly wet on wet, finish by brushing in the same direction.
Always use the same batch no. on contiguous/unbroken surfaces.
Cold / heat can affect the viscosity of the material.
Material temperature for spray painting, min. 15°C.
Condensation must be prevented during drying/curing.
Avoid working in direct sunlight and on hot surfaces.
Cold and increased humidity extends drying time, full curing and recoating interval.
Increased temperature and low atmospheric humidity reduce drying time and full curing.
Always test adhesion and result before hanging.

Be Aware

Protect freshly painted surface from adverse weather conditions.
Take appropriate measures against the effects of moisture and rainfall on freshly painted surfaces.
The surface achieves maximum robustness when fully cured.
Older buildings, constructed using pure lime mortar, should be able to be plastered or treated with silicate paint.

Environmental information

Clean off the paint from tools and wash them with water. Bring remains of fluent paint to the local recycling centre. Minimize your paint waste by pre-estimating how much paint you need. Keep the leftover paint for future use so you can effectively reduce the environmental impact.

Storage: Cool, frost free and tightly closed

Protection equipment: Spray painting: painting suit, full face mask with combined filter. Painting: eye protection, gloves. Sanding: respiratory protection
