FIELDS OF APPLICATION
TerraMare I is an ideal finish masonry paint, highly hydro-repellent and permeable, high exterior performance in all weather conditions, with excellent UV resistance. TerraMare I can be applied on virgin Portland cement stuccos, painted cement stuccos, reinforced concrete and plastic resin stuccos. TerraMare I can also be applied over concrete block or brick, painted and non-painted. Silossanic paints have a high performance with exposure to sun, rain and inclement weather conditions. Silossanic Paints are particularly suited in urban environments where carbon pollution, dirt, and chemicals are prevalent because of silossanic’s ability to self-clean during rain cycles.
TerraMare I can be used on aging cement stuccos and cement block where water penetration has become a destabilizing agent and stucco or block that is being effected by efflorescence or salt nitrate discoloration. TerraMare I is a non-aggregate paint, and dries to a flat mineral paint like sheen, so that colors and effect is similar to a historical lime wash or potassium silicate paint. Product can also be painted on new or old cement stuccos where high scrub-ability is desired, and is ideal for surfaces where unusual wet conditions exist.
This silossanic paint has very low VOC content and is completely permeable, breathable, hydro-repellent, self-cleaning and washable. Product has excellent anchorage to all new masonry surfaces, is a non-yellowing, non-thermoplastic, with high resistance to aging and UV damage. Paint sheen is flat/opaque, and when applied by brush creates very subtle chromatic variations. Product can be applied by brush, roller or sprayer, with full coverage achieved in two (2)-coats. Because of the hydro-repellent properties this paint has self-cleaning properties and does not permit the accumulation of dirt or pollution to deposit in the stucco pores of the surface, easily washing off by rain or with a light rinsing.
Silossanic paint is based on a silicone rubber water based formula, being made from silica (sand), and is an Eco-sustainable paint as described in the Eco Category description.
TYPE OF PRODUCT
Silossanic coating according to DIN 4108, based on silicone rubber with organic stabilizers. No acrylic binders used.
White Base. Color tint up to 20% max with approved tints. Custom color tint matching available.
APPLICATION CYCLE INSTRUCTIONS
BRUSH AND ROLLER APPLICATIONS
1ST COAT Apply TerraMare Sealer without dilution, to all new masonry surfaces prior to applying TerraMare I. Allow Sealer to dry for at least 8 – 12 hours. Dilute TerraMare I with 25% water, maximum 3.75 liters of water per one (1) 15-liter bucket of TerraMare I. Apply to surface with brush, roller or sprayer. Allow to dry for at least 8 – 12 hours.
2ND COAT Apply TerraMare I diluted 25% using application tools as described above.
1ST COAT Follow instructions indicated above except dilute TerraMare I with 20% water, maximum 3 liters of water per one (1) 15 liter bucket. Spray a consistent and even coat.
2ND COAT Repeat instructions for 1st coat for paint sprayer.
SPRAY TIP USAGE TerraMare I can easily be applied using an airless sprayer. Apply paint product with a # 0.019 – 0.021 mm size spray tip. Always use new spray tips for starting a paint job for best results. This will also conserve the amount of paint necessary to complete the job.
GRAIN SIZE 0.01 mm
MIXING PAINT & WATER
Most of our paint formulas are concentrated and require water to be added to them for proper use. This process means we can sell more coverage in an economical package that decreases the cost for transport, reduces the carbon footprint, helping the your pocket book and the environment.
Mix paint and water with an electric drill and paint paddle, or mix well by hand! If water is sitting on the top of your mixture, the paint is not properly mixed!
Apply with brush, roller or with the an appropriate sprayer.
Allow a drying time between coats of at least eight (8) – twelve (12) hours. With lower temperature and humidity more time may be needed.
Do not apply TerraMare Sealer or TerraMare I on the exterior if there is a risk of thunder storms or showers during the 12 hour drying time needed for product to dry correctly.
Approximately 2,000 ft2 / 190 mt2 per 15 liters bucket. On rough or porous surfaces predict higher consumption. Determine exact consumption by performing a test on the surface to be treated.
Plastic buckets of 1, 5 and 15 liters.
APPLICATION CYCLES ON DIFFERENT TYPES OF BASES
Make sure base is solid, dry and well cleaned, prepared with skill. It is recommended to observe the rule VOB DIN 18 363, Part C, paragraph 3.
