Intended Usages

  • To penetrate and bind chalky paint films - interior and exterior.
  • To penetrate and bind friable plasters.
  • To seal porous plasters, brick, concrete, fibre cement and masonite.

Application Details

  • Mixing: Stir before use with a flat paddle to an even consistency. Stir occasionally during use to ensure the correct penetration results.
  • Method: Roller or brush.
  • Thinning: ProGold Mineral Turpentine up to 20% on the first coat for a 2 coat application. 1 Coat application, apply undiluted.
  • Cleaning: Remove as much of the product as possible from the application equipment before cleaning with ProGold Mineral Turpentine.

Conditions:

  • Temperature between 5°C and 40°C.
  • Relative humidity of less than 85%, preferably between 10: 00 and 16: 00.

Drying time: 
4-6 hours. 
Note:  Higher temperatures will accelerate the drying times (approximately halved for every 10°C increase), whilst lower temperatures will retard the drying time (approximately doubled for every 10°C decrease).

Recoating time:
 24 hours to 48 hours maximum at 23°C.

Requirements:
 1-2 coats dependent on surface conditions.

Surface Preparations
New, sound plaster:

  • Ensure the plaster is dry. \
  • Brush down well to remove as much of the loose material as possible then apply directly.

New, friable plaster:

  • Ensure the plaster is dry.
  • Brush down well to remove as much of the loose material as possible.
  • Apply a coat of Prominent Surface Restorer diluted 20% with ProGold Mineral Turpentine.
  • Apply second coat undiluted.

Friable floor screed:

  • Not recommended.

Chalky paint (thin coat):

  • Apply directly.
  • Do a cross hatch adhesion test to ensure proper binding of the substrate before the final finishing application commences.

Chalky paint (numerous coats):

  • Remove chalkiness by high pressure water washer 180KPA with a rotating nozzle or ProGold General Purpose Cleaner/water mixture (1: 10) and a nylon scrubbing brush.
  • Rinse with clean water, allow drying and apply a coat of Prominent Surface Restorer diluted 20% with ProGold Mineral Turpentine.
  • Apply second coat undiluted.

Lime-wash:

  • Remove chalkiness by high pressure water washer 180KPA with a rotating nozzle or ProGold General Purpose Cleaner/water mixture (1: 10) and a nylon scrubbing brush.
  • Rinse with clean water, allow drying and apply a coat of Prominent Surface Restorer diluted 20% with ProGold Mineral Turpentine.
  • Apply second coat undiluted.
  • In all cases it is important to perform a cross hatch adhesion test to ensure proper binding of the substrate before the final finishing application commences.


Limitations

  • Apply only under specified conditions.
  • Not for use on metal surfaces as a primer or finishing coat.
  • Efficacy with respect to penetrating and bonding on a specific surface must be tested on a small surface before proceeding with the remaining surface area.
