Mapei Dursilite Gloss is best used for the painting all new, old and painted internal surfaces to give substrates an attractive, smooth, semi-gloss finish that is easy to clean of stains and enhances the brightness of colours. Dursilite Gloss's special formula, a combination of acrylic based binders and polyurethane, makes this product particularly suitable for painting all types of cementitious, lime and gypsum-based substrates which require a high degree of long-lasting protection together with excellent resistance to cleaning and very low dirt pick-up.
Ideal for painting all types of internal walls and new, well-cured or old cementitious, lime and gypsum render and smoothing and levelling compounds, as long as they are sound, well-bonded and have no crumbling areas. Also ideal for the painting rooms in homes such as sitting rooms, bedrooms, entrance halls, or in areas used by the general public exposed to a high level of wear and dirt.
Mapei Dursilite Gloss is highly resistant to yellowing, a high level of surface hardness and has great hiding power.
Surfaces to be painted must be well cured, perfectly clean, sound and dry. Remove all traces of oil and grease from the surface and any parts which are not well bonded. Seal all cracks and repair any damaged or deteriorated areas. Seal surface pores and level off uneven areas on the substrate with mortar and smoothing compound from the MAPEI Building Products line.
Apply a coat of Malech transparent bonding promoter diluted with water. The amount of water required depends on the type of substrate (cementitious, lime or gypsum based, etc.) and its level of absorbency. As a general guide, we recommend diluting Malech 1/1 with water for more absorbent substrates and 1/2 for less absorbent substrates. For bright colours that normally have poor hiding power (such as bright red, yellow or green) use Dursilite Base Coat coloured undercoat in the same colour, diluted with up to 5% of water. Wait until the Malech or Dursilite Base Coat are completely dry (6-12 hours) before applying Dursilite Gloss.
Please note, add 2 - 2.5 litres of fresh, clean water per 20kg tub. Then thoroughly mix with an electric mix before use
Dilute Dursilite Gloss with 3-10% of water, depending on the application method used and the condition of the substrate. When diluting the paint make sure it is thoroughly blended. Use a drill at low speed for mixing if necessary. When preparing partial quantities, we recommend mixing Dursilite Gloss as is in its original container before pouring off the quantity required.
Apply Dursilite Gloss with a short-pile roller, brush or by spray on the dry coat of Malech or Dursilite Base Coat The complete cycle comprises the application of at least two coats of Dursilite Gloss with a recoat time of 6-12 hours, according to temperature and humidity conditions, and in all cases wait until the previous coat is completely dry.
