NORDICA EKO

House paint

  • Water-borne

Water-borne paint based on double-action acrylate, for wooden surfaces outdoors. NORDICA EKO has a glossy and hard surface that is dirt-repellent and retains its appearance, colour and gloss for a very long time.

New and previously with acrylate paints painted wooden surfaces, e.g. exterior walls, facial boards, weather boards and window boards. May also be used for maintenance painting on most old oil and alkyd paints, if the surfaces are in good condition. On log structures we recommend WOODEX AQUA CLASSIC wood stain.

Surface preparation

NEW WOODEN SURFACE: Treat the surface as soon as possible. At least the impregnation and priming would be best done in the summer of construction. Remove from the surface all loose matter, dirt, dust and mildew. If needed, use RENSA FACADE facade cleaner. Apply a coat of clear wood preservative from the WOODEX series. Allow to dry for one day. Prime wooden surfaces with 5-10 % diluted NORDICA PRIMER and allow the surfaces to dry for 1 - 3 days depending on the weather. Clean rusty steel parts: by sanding, wire brushing eg., and prime with FERREX AQUA anticorrosive paint. PREVIOUSLY PAINTED OR OLD WOODEN SURFACE: Change the deteriorated wooden parts to new ones. Remove loose matter, dirt and dust. Remove the deteriorated paint coats entirely. Note, that the adherence of an old thick paint layer to the substrate may have been weakened, therefore the paint should be removed although the paint film looks intact. The old paint layer is removed primarily by scraping or wire brushing and possibly by heating the surface with infra-red heater designed for that purpose. Secondarily paint remover or blasting can be used. The surface of old oil paint coats may be in poor condition: heavily chalked, dusty and brittle. These types of surfaces must be carefully cleaned so, that the new paint adheres properly to the substrate. Some traditional paint types, such as red ochre paint and paraffin oil paint, produce such a brittle and dusty surface, that they can't be maintenance painted with NORDICA EKO. If there is doubt about the adhesion, it must be ensured by test painting. Wash surfaces with RENSA FACADE facade cleaner and rinse thoroughly. Old, untreated wooden surfaces can before the priming be treated with clear wood preservative from the WOODEX series, see ´NEW WOODEN SURFACE´. Prime bare wooden surfaces with NORDICA PRIMER, diluted 5-10%. Allow to dry for 1 to 3 days depending on the weather. Clean rusty steel parts: by sanding, wire brushing eg., and prime with FERREX AQUA anticorrosive paint.

Application

Reserve a sufficient amount of paint in the same vessel for each uniform surface. Colour differences will thus be avoided. Stir the paint well and apply by paint brush or spray once or twice.

Application conditions

The surface to be painted must be dry. The moisture of the wood must be below 20 % of the dry weight of the wood. During the application and drying period the temperature of the ambient air, the surface and the paint shall be above +5 °C and the relative air humidity below 80 %. Avoid application in direct sunlight.
