Teknos Timantti 3 is a full matt water-borne acrylate dispersion primer for walls and ceilings indoors. This adhesion primer is mildew-resistant. Also suitable for application to galvanized sheet metal surfaces.
Teknos Timantti 3 is ideal for adhesion priming walls and ceilings indoors constructed from unpainted concrete, plaster, stopper, brick and building board surfaces. Teknos Timantti 3 can also be used as an adhesion primer for wall and ceiling surfaces previously painted with alkyd or dispersion paints. Also suitable for priming surfaces that are to be wallpapered or to which a stick-on wall covering (e.g. a non-woven wallpaper) is attached.
Teknos Timantti 3 can also be applied on galvanized sheet metal surfaces, such as air conditioning pipes. The product has been classified to Group M1 in Emission Classification of building materials.
In standard specifications, Teknos Timantti 3 is used as a primer under Teknos Timantti Clean for a hygiene friendly wall and ceiling paint system.
Clean the surface from dirt and dust. Wash previously painted, dirty surfaces with Teknos Rensa Super paint cleaner. Matt down hard or gloss surfaces by sanding and thereafter remove the dust. For smoothing of irregularities in the surface choose a suitable filler from the Teknos Silora series. The dried filler is sanded down and the dust removed.
Steel surfaces are primed with Teknos Ferrex Aqua anti-corrosive paint. Teknos Timantti 3 is a water-borne paint. Coatings, which are not waterproof, such as old
unpainted ceiling stopper or glue paint coats, must be removed before applying Teknos Timantti 3. Alternatively Teknos Futura 3 adhesion primer can be used as an insulation primer.
Before use stir the paint thoroughly. The paint can be diluted with water, if required, but dilution may impair the coverage of the paint. Apply by roller, spray or brush.
Recommended nozzle size for airless spray is 0.017 - 0.021''.
