Teknos Kirjo Aqua is a water-borne acrylate-based paint with anti-corrosive pigmentation for sheet-iron roofs.
Kirjo Aqua ia best used for new unpainted zinc coated/galvanized sheet-iron and steel surfaces and also for maintenance painting of sheet-iron roofs which are previously painted with alkyd or acrylate paints.
KIRJO AQUA can also be used for maintenance painting of industrially paint coated sheet steel: polyurethane, PURAL, PUREX, polyester, acrylic and PVC-Plastisol
coatings. Maintenance painting of other coatings is done in accordance with instructions given by the steel manufacturer..
Before use stir the paint thoroughly. Dilute the paint 5 - 15 % by volume by water, when required.
NEW UNPAINTED SURFACES: Apply the paint by brush, roof brush or airless spray. When applied by a brush, apply the paint twice to a dry film thickness of 2 x 40 μm.
When spray painting the total film thickness of 80 μm (wet film abt. 210 μm) may be applied as a single coat. Recommended nozzle for airless spray is 0.015 - 0.019".
MAINTENANCE PAINTING: Bare, rust-free sheet-iron surfaces of the cleaned, damaged areas are touched up with KIRJO AQUA. Very rusty, cleaned steel surfaces are primed with FERREX AQUA Anti-corrosive Paint. The whole roof is then painted with Kirjo Aqua to a dry film thickness of 40 μm. Two coats are recommended only if the colour of the roof is changed.
The surface to be painted must be dry. During the application and drying period (note also the temperature of the night following the painting) the temperature of the ambient air, the surface and the paint needs to be above +10°C and the relative air humidity below 80%. If the temperature of the surface to be painted exceeds +40°C, the application properties and the adhesion of the paint deteriorate. The temperature of the surface must not be over +40°C, or the water in the product may evaporate too quickly, pores may be formed to the paint film, adhesion may get worse or bubbles may appear.
