Application Interiors

Preparation Protecting Areas, Existing Paint:

All eisting paint should be cleaned down using a diluted solution of Chemclean Paint Cleaner and thoroughly washed off with clean water to remove all grease, grime, etc.  All loose flakey paint must be removed and sand total area using 120 grit sandpaper. 

Any repairs should be filled using Gapflex and sanded smooth.

Preparation New Interior Substrates:

All areas should be completely clean, dust free.  All repairs should be filled and flushed smooth on concrete using Shieldpatch mixed with Resin 50 or Gapflex - on plaster, gibrock, gibraltar board, gypsum plaster board, etc.  Use Gypsum Plaster, Gapflex or Stopping Compound.  Allow to dry.

Sealer Coat:

Apply 1 coat of Multiseal Sealer to all substrates - alternatively a second coat may be neccessary on certain porous substrates to provide improved performance.  Allow to dry.

Basecolour:

Apply 1 coat of correct Basecolour by spray application at approximately 6-8m2 per litre coverage.  It is always important to use correct Basecolour (as the wrong colour could grin through)

Multifleck Application:

Apply Multifleck using Pressure Pot System with external spray tip only.  For improved coverage and performance a 1mm tip is recommended.  (1 1/2 mm to 2mm fluid tip can also be used for larger fleck if required.)

Pressures:

For best results use, 10 to 25 lbs fluid pressure, 20 to 35lbs air pressure and do not exceed 45 to 50 lbs air pressure, as flecks and colour will be shattered causing colours to merge together.  They will not then match original samples.  Test trial on sample board before application to approve correct colour.

Keep prsure Pot and Spray Gun clean at all times.  Immerse Spray Gun under water in hot conditions when not in use.  Clean each time after use with water.

Do not thin Multifleck, this would cause undesirable spray and colour patterns.

Multifleck Application:

Apply Multifleck overlapping each spray pass by 50% holding spray gun 200-300 mm from surface and directly at surface (not angling, otherwise damage will result).

Continue this technique ensuring all Base Colour is completely obliterated (Base Colour or Multiseal should not grin through).

Continue finishing with this technique completing the area as you go, this system requires only 1 coat.

Spray all angles, edges, and intricate tricky areas first, only then proceed to spray large flat areas maintaining Spray Gun directly at surface at approximately 10-15 inches (200 -300mm) away from substrate for best results.

Glaze Coat:

For additional protection and improved performance it is important to apply Multiclear A & B clear glaze in Satin or Gloss, especially on commercial heavy traffic areas including any wet areas - bathroom, shower, toilets, locker rooms, etc. - apply 1 -2 coats of Multiclear Glaze.  Use Ultraclear 500 for hard durable finish on furniture, reception counters, floors, etc.

Multifleck will not spray through Suction Cup Guns or Airless Spray Pumps as too higher pressures will shatter the flecks.
