Surface preparation

In order to achieve successful results, the surface to be painted must be completely cleaned from dirt, flaking and poorly adherent old paint or coating as well as brittle top layer of the concrete. Remove loose dirt, moss and other growth from tile roof by brushing. Clean the brushed roof using RENSA ROOF roof wash. Wet the tile surface before applying the detergent. Apply the detergent (e.g. using a low-pressure spray) and brush strongly. Rinse with clean water using a high pressure washer. NOTE! Detergent must not dry onto the surface to be painted. Allow the washed tile surface to dry completely before priming.

Application

Thin KIRJO TILE 15 % by volume with water. Apply the thinned paint by brush to a dry tile surface. The paint may also be applied by airless spray, but the absorption and the adhesion of the thinned paint will be enhanced if brushed immediately after the spraying. Before use stir the paint thoroughly. Top coat is not thinned. Reserve a sufficient amount of paint in the same vessel for each uniform surface. Colour differences will thus be avoided. Apply the paint by brush, so called roof brush or airless spray. Recommended nozzle for airless spray is 0.015 - 0.019".

Application conditions

The surface to be painted must be dry. During the application and drying period (note also the temperature of the night following the painting) the temperature of the ambient air, the surface and the paint shall be above +10°C and the relative air humidity below 80%.

Maintenance

The painted surface withstands rain in normal conditions after abt. three hours drying. The final forming of the paint film takes 3 - 4 weeks under normal circumstances and after that the ultimate durability and hardness is reached. Before this the painted surface must be treated with care. The painted surface can be cleaned with water and a neutral (pH 6 - 8) detergent, if needed. For very dirty surfaces can also alkalescent (pH 8 - 10) detergents be used. Follow the dilution and other instructions of the detergent producer when using detergents. Roof painted with KIRJO TILE can in the future be further maintenance painted with KIRJO TILE tile roof paint according to the instructions.
