PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

INTENDED USES

A single component, fast drying swimming pool paint for use in fresh and salt water, in pools or fountains, new or old. It adheres well to concrete, fibreglass, marbelite plaster, gunite, cement plaster. There is no need to prime existing surfaces. Being a one component product, it is extremely easy for DIY work or inexperienced applicators while at the same time rendering outstanding results and performance properties. Ensure than the pool painting guide is followed for preparation and application.

CHARACTERISTICS

good flexibility and weather

  • Good resistance to fading, chalking or UV Good resistance to algae formation and easily cleanable
  • Good resistance to mineral acids and alkalis
  • Single pack – can be applied by brush, roller or spray
  • Exhibits good flexibility and weather ability
  • Minimum preparation required for over-coating due to “melt-in” characteristics which allows for easy re-application when maintenance is required
  • Method of Application Brush, Roller or Spray Temperature Resistance Dry continuous – 60°C

Number of Coats

30 min curing to touch dry

2 MAX DRYING INFORMATION 5°C 10°C 15°C 25°C 30°C 40°C

Touch Dry : 30 min | Hard Dry: 24 hrs. | Full Cure: 7 Days. Overcoating Data – See Limitations Substrate Temp. 5°C 10°C 15°C 20°C 30°C 40°C Minimum: 24 hrs | Maximum: No Limitation. Provided that the surface is free from any contamination* If more than 72 hours elapses between coats, sand the film to provide sufficient profile (150-180 grit) *See Limitations for curing

SURFACE PREPARATION

determine the type of pool paint previously used

The following is a basic guide only. Do not begin painting pool without following the application guide ad if the pool already has a pool paint on coating, determine the type of pool paint previously used. Surfaces to be coated must be free of dust & debris. Flush with plenty of water and allow to dry. Sand surface with 150 – 180 grit sand paper or equivalent. Rinse off sanding dust and allow to dry for 24 hours. Fibreglass: Use a dilute solution of Hydrosolve Degreaser to clean surface prior to painting, hand scrub water lines where oils from sun lotion tends to migrate. Flush with plenty of water and allow to dry. Sand surface with 150 – 180 grit sand paper or equivalent. Rinse off sanding dust and allow to dry for 24 hours. .

APPLICATION

product is self-priming on the substrates

Stir well with a flat-bottomed paddle or mechanical mixer until product is uniform. This product is self-priming on the substrates listed above. When applying to masonry surfaces it is advisable to thin the first coat up to 25% with Solvent XL to aid in “wetting” and penetrating of the surface.This product can be applied by Brush, Roller or Spray. Roller application is preferred, follow spread rate recommendations.DO NOT APPLYING HEAVIER FILMS THAN RECOMMENDED. Always apply two coats of pool paint. Avoid painting in direct sunlight.

LIMITATIONS

Allow at least 7 days after the final applied coat before filling

  • Allow at least 7 days after the final applied coat before filling the pool with water. 10-14 days for indoor pools. Provide forced airflow by using fans to circulate air in the pool, where solvent vapours from the pool paint will collect and slow final curing. If rainwater gets into the pool prior to completion of fill cure, pump out the rain water as soon as possible.
  • Never cover the pool with a tarp or solar blanket during cure. This could trap solvent in the coating.
  • All pool paints will eventually fade in colour when exposed to Chlorine. Maximum colour fastness can be achieved maintaining proper chemical balances. Do not over-chlorinate. After refilling pool add concentrated chlorine or chlorine shock through a chlorinator or into the skimmer trap to avoid having concentrate chlorine come in contact with the new paint.
  • Do not apply over previously coated epoxy or acrylic / pliolite based coatings/paint.
  • Do not use in hot tubs and spas due to high water temperatures.
  • Use of this product on surface otherwise specified is not recommended. Consult with our technical department for more information
  • Thick coatings must avoided to prevent blistering on immersion
  • Over-application will extend both the minimum overcoating periods and handling times, and may be detrimental to long term overcoating properties.
  • Overcoating information is given for guidance only and is subject to local climate and environmental conditions. Consult with a representative for specific recommendations
  • Test performance results were obtained in a controlled environment makes no claim that the exhibited published test results, or any other tests, accurately represent results found in all field environments. As application, environmental and design factors can vary, due care should be exercised in the selection and verification of the performance and use of the coating Store at temperature between 5 and 35°C
