Teknos Timantti Clean is a semi-matt water-borne acrylate dispersion paint which contains BioCote® silver phosphate glass antimicrobial technology to preserve the coating surface and prevent colonisation and degradation caused by microbial growth.
Teknos Timantti Clean is suitable for internal use in wear resistance categories 04 and 05, on wall and ceiling surfaces requiring high hygiene levels and wear resistance.
It is recommended for use in facilities where the antimicrobial properties of the paint film improve the functionality of spaces, such as hospitals, health centres and other public health premises, nursing homes, kindergartens, schools and other public spaces, as well as food industry spaces for example..
Teknos Timantti Clean can be applied to primed concrete, plaster, stopper, brick and building board surfaces according to the instructions. Teknos Timantti Clean is also suitable for repainting old alkyd and dispersion paint coats.
Teknos Timantti Clean enhanced with BioCote® antimicrobial technology has been tested for antimicrobial performance in accordance with ISO 22196:2011 and exhibited a minimum of 95% and up to 99.99% reduction in the population of Escherichia Coli and Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA). Testing was
carried out by an independent laboratory.
Clean new surfaces from dust and dirt. Wash previously painted 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 stopper from the Teknospro series. The dried stopper is sanded down and the dust removed.
HUMID AREAS AND WET ROOMS: Prime concrete, plaster, stopper, brick, and building board surfaces with Teknos Timantti W moisture sealer.
IN DRY AREAS: Prime the surfaces previously mentioned with Teknos Timantti 3 Primer.
STEEL: Surfaces should be primed with Teknos Ferrex Aqua Anticorrosive paint. Prime galvanized surfaces with Teknos Timantti 3 Primer.
Before use stir the paint thoroughly. Apply TIMANTTI CLEAN once or twice by roller, spray or brush. Recommended nozzle size for airless spray is 0.017 - 0.021''. The surface to be painted has to be dry. During the application and drying period the temperature of the ambient air, the surface and the paint shall be above +5°C and the
relative air humidity below 80%. Good ventilation during the application and drying period quickens the drying process.
The final forming of the paint film takes abt. 4 weeks under normal circumstances and after that the ultimate durability and hardness is reached. Before this the painted surface must be treated with care.
- The antimicrobial active ingredient is silver which prevents harful bacteria cells from dviding.
- The surface maintains antimicrobial efficiency through everyday wear and tear like scuffs and scratches, as the entire paint film, not just the surface, is active.
- The products antimicrobial efficiency has been tested according to standard ISO 22196.
- In test conditions the numbers of MRSA bacteria decreased by more than 99.9% in 24 hours.
