Substrates must be sound, clean, dry, free from frost, dust efflorescence and not water repellent. Existing mineral based coatings and paints must be sound and well bonded to the substrate.
Surfaces must always be prepared with a full even coat of Baumit the appropriate Baumit Primer before applying Baumit SilikatTop. Allow to dry for 24 hours.
Baumit SilikatTop must be well and slowly mixed with an electric hand mixer before application. It may not be mixed with other paint
materials. Where required a minimal amount of water (max. 1%) may be added to improve workability.
SilikatTop is applied with a stainless steel trowel or a fine spray machine and trowelled through to the grain thickness to produce a full
and even coat. The surface is then textured using a plastic float, moving in tight circular motions. It should be applied systematically
and continuously in complete sections.
