Get Your Tools

EcoDomus Matte can be applied with a brush, roller, or spray like any traditional paint. You will want tape, drop cloths, ladders or other items to prepare the surface. Get a separate mixing bucket to dilute with water before usage.

Tool-list

Mixing With Water

Domus Mineral Paints require water to be added prior to usage. Why?

  • Allows for a cleaner product by not having to add toxic stabilizers, and
  • Reduces our carbon footprint by up to 40%.

Mixing with water or diluting the product with water is as simple as pouring the concentrated paint into a separate, clean mixing bucket; then adding the amount of water listed below (dilution rate); and using a paddle drill or a spatula to mix thoroughly. You should mix for 2 – 4 minutes until there is uniform consistency with no standing water. The dilution rate varies by base type (Transparent or White) or color selection. The base type is labeled on the front and back of the paint bucket.

EcoDomus Matte Dilution

8.2 Exposure Controls

As the use of adequate technical equipment must always take priority over personal protection equipment, make sure that the workplace is well aired through effective local aspiration or bad air vent. If such operations do not make it possible to keep the concentration of the product below the permitted workplace exposure thresholds a suitable respiratory tract protection must be used. See product label for hazard details during use. Personal protection equipment must comply with the rules in force indicated below.

HANDLING PROTECTION
Protect hands with category II (ref. Directive 89/686/EEC and standard EN 374) work gloves, such as those in PVC, neoprene, nitrite or equivalent. The following should be considered when choosing work glove material: degradation, breakage times and permeation. Work glove resistance to preparations should be checked before use, as it can be unpredictable. Gloves’ limit depends on the duration of exposure.

EYE PROTECTION
Wear protective airtight goggles (ref. standard EN 166).

SKIN PROTECTION
Wear category II professional long-sleeved overalls and safety footwear (ref. Directive 89/686/CEE and standard EN 344). Wash body with soap and water after removing overalls.

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION
If the threshold value (if available) for one or more of the substances present in the preparation for daily exposure in the workplace or to a fraction established by the company’s prevention and protection service is exceeded, wear a mask with an B or universal filter, the class (1, 2 or 3) of which must be chosen according to the limit concentration of use (ref. standard EN 141).

The use of respiratory tract protection equipment, such as masks like that indicated above, is necessary to reduce worker exposure in the absence of technical measures. The protection provided by masks is in any case limited.

If the substance in question is odorless or its olfactory threshold is higher than the relative exposure limit and in the event of an emergency, or when exposure levels are unknown or the concentration of oxygen in the workplace is less than 17% volume, wear self-contained, open-circuit compressed air breathing apparatus (ref. standard EN 137) or fresh air hose breathing apparatus for use with full face mask, half mask or mouthpiece (ref. standard EN 138).

FIELDS OF APPLICATION

EcoDomus Matte is a two (2) coat primer and finish paint for interior wall surfaces & trim. Provides consolidation for new sheetrock without the use of an additional primer. A non-acrylic paint product providing superior adhesion than typical acrylic or waterborne paints.

EcoDomus Matte, as with all the Domus line mineral paints, is designed to be diluted with water, providing a paint applicator optimal ranges to adjust the paint’s thickness and density as per job site application may require. Dilution rates for applications for wall & trim paint may be adjusted from 15 – 35% according to type of coverage required.

EcoDomus Matte can be used as a decorative finish when applied to virgin woods, diluting as much as 50 – 100% with water. Product can be burnished with 0-000 steel wool to enhance wood grain character.

EcoDomus Matte is ideal for application for cabinets and furniture when applied to non-painted or sealed woods. For best results to protect against scratches and excessive wear & tear, it is recommended to follow with a sealer using LowCer Varnish Matte, diluted with water.

EcoDomus Matte paint is a very versatile and dynamic paint that permits 100’s of options for variations, adjusting dilutions and application techniques to create professional and artistic finishes.

Dilutions with water are suggested as general guidelines for application, but paint applicator may adjust dilutions as needed to meet best uses for ease of application, job site requirements and finishes.

PRODUCT FEATURES

An 87% natural mineral product, highly permeable, breathable, absorbs CO2, provides good anchoring power with mineral surfaces by petrification (water glass); and will bond to the mineral content on the substrate. Provides protection against the formation of bacteria that forms mold. Product is considered an Eco-Sustainable product, ideal for use in homes, schools, and hospitals, and chemical sensitive areas.

This paint product is an oil proof, washable matte finish, that is not damaged by foods, greases, body oils, color crayons, or washable colored markers. Oils or greases can be removed using a mild detergent, lightly scrubbing with a rag or sponge, and dry with a clean rag or paper towel. Paint touch-ups are simple and do not require whole wall repaints.

Domus line mineral paints (potassium silicates) require an average 14 days to fully cure, and will continue to micro-crystallize for 7 – 8 years. Care must be given for newly painted surfaces to minimize damages resulting from soiling, over zealous cleaning and tape masking.

EcoDomus Matte is specifically designed to be tinted with natural earth oxide tints and 0% VOC colorants to increase esthetic color values with minimal environmental impact and toxin-free indoor air quality. EcoDomus Matte is category ECO which means Eco-Sustainable containing at least 75% natural raw materials, and the other 25% inert binders and non-toxic chemicals.

TYPE OF PRODUCT

Silicate coating according to DIN 18363, based on potassium silicate with organic stabilizers. No acrylic binders used.

SHEEN FINISH

COLOR

White / Transparent Base. Color tint up to 5% max with approved tints for white base, 20% max with approved tints for transparent base. Custom color tint matching available.

GENERAL APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

WHITE

BRUSH AND ROLLER APPLICATIONS

1ST COAT/PRIMER: Dilute EcoDomus Matte with 20 – 25% water, or 3 – 3.75 liters of water per one (1) 15 liter bucket of EcoDomus Matte. Do not attempt to cover new walls or surfaces with one (1)-coat of paint. The 1st coat will not provide perfect coverage. Apply enough paint to fully cover the walls or trim. Allow 1st coat to dry for at least 45 minutes to 1 hour before applying 2nd coat. New drywall will continue to absorb Domus line paints if the 1st coat is not allowed to dry properly. Improper application methods can result in reduction of paint coverage by as much as 80 – 90%.

2ND COAT: Dilute EcoDomus Matte with 20 – 25% water, or 3 – 3.75 liters of water, to one (1) 15 liter bucket. Apply paint in an even and constant pattern, so that a perfect coverage is achieved. The 2nd coat is the most important for achieving your final desired finish. For repaints over dark colors, apply 1st coat application with minimum dilution of water.

Dilutions with water are suggested as general guidelines for application, but paint applicator may adjust dilutions as needed to meet best uses for ease of application, job site requirements and finishes.

PAINT SPRAYERS

1ST COAT / PRIMER: Dilute EcoDomus Matte with 20 – 25% water, or 3 – 3.75 liters of water per one (1) 15 liter bucket. Allow to dry for at least 45 minutes to 1 hour before applying 2nd coat. Do not attempt to cover walls for new surfaces with one (1) coat of paint. Apply enough paint to fully cover the walls or trim. Allow 1st coat to dry for at least 45 minutes to 1 hour before applying 2nd coat. Over spraying wet on wet will result in excessive waste of product.

2ND COAT: Dilute EcoDomus Matte with 20 – 25% water, or 3 – 3.75 liters of water to one (1) 15 liter bucket, and apply with a sprayer if applicator chooses not to use a paint roller cover for the 2nd coat.

Manufacturer does not recommend application of final coat with sprayer without the use of back rolling, as this makes touch-ups difficult with rollers or brushes. Back rolling should be performed with product diluted at 20 – 25% water. Back rolling should occur immediately after wall area has been sprayed. Do not try to back roll if sprayed paint has dried on the wall.

TRANSPARENT BASE

EcoDomus Matte should be diluted at least with a minimum 5% with water, or 750 ml per one (1) 15 liter bucket. Recommended dilution is 10% with water, or 1.5 liters of water per one (1) 15 liter bucket of EcoDomus Matte, and apply to a prepared base. Follow application instructions as indicated above.

SPRAY TIP USAGE: EcoDomus Matte can easily be applied using an airless sprayer. Apply paint product with a #0.019 – 0.021 inch (0.48 – 0.53 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: 0.1 mm

MIXING PAINT & WATER

ROMA’s Domus line mineral paint formulas are concentrated and require water to be added to them for proper use. This concentrated formula means more coverage in each bucket, decreasing the cost for transport, and reducing our carbon footprint. We do not have to add toxic preservatives or anti-microbial to increase shelf life like most acrylic paint products.

Mix paint and water with an electric drill, paint paddle, or mix well by hand! If water is sitting on the top of your mixture, the paint is not properly mixed!

TOOLS

Apply with brush, roller or with the an appropriate sprayer and sprayer tip. New sprayer tips should be used to prevent product waste and provide for a more perfect finish.

TOOL CLEANING

Brush, roller, rags, or sponges should be cleaned immediately after use with water and a mild detergent or dish soap.

DRYING TIME

Allow a drying time between coats of at least 45 minutes with a maximum 2 coats. With lower temperature and humidity more time may be needed. Allow at least 8 – 12 hours drying time before attempting washing or applying additional products or other finishes. Complete curing occurs within 14 days, and with silicification, hardness will increase to approximate full strength in three (3)-months.

CONSUMPTION/COVERAGE

Approximately 2,550 ft2 /237 mt2 – 2,800 ft2 / 260 mt2 per 15 liters bucket diluted with 3 – 3.75 liters water. Determine exact consumption by performing a test on the surface to be treated.

PACKAGING

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.

NEW DRYWALL

PRIMER: EcoDomus Matte is an excellent primer and consolidator for new grey-board, blue-board, and green-board drywalls. Drywall surfaces should be carefully sanded prior to application of EcoDomus Matte. This product permits minimum drywall joint compound repairs and backsanding without peeling. EcoDomus Matte is a very strong and durable paint, and once dry is not easily sandable.

FINAL COAT: EcoDomus Matte when applied on prepared drywall surfaces will satisfactory cover small joint compound repairs without the need to back prime. Larger repair areas should be back primed before applying final coat.

PLASTER APPLICATIONS ON NEW DRYWALL: BioDomus SuperFlat must be applied to all types of blue or green-boards prior to the application of BioGrip Micro or Medium. For applications on grey-board, EcoForte Consolidator or BioDomus SuperFlat can be used prior to application of BioGrip Primers.

PAINTED DRYWALL

Apply EcoDomus Matte according to instructions. For walls that have been painted with semi-gloss or gloss paints, oil or latex, BioGrip Micro primer should be applied prior to application of EcoDomus Matte. Apply one (1) coat of BioGrip Micro primer diluted 30% with water, and allow to dry for 8 – 12 hours prior to application of EcoDomus Matte. BioGrip Primers may be tinted from light to medium colors. Apply final paint finish with EcoDomus Matte as indicated in GENERAL APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS.

UNPAINTED WOOD

INTERIOR ONLY: Sand all wood surfaces as required to provide a smooth surface and lightly wipe wood surfaces with a damp cloth or tack cloth to remove all traces of dust. Fill all nail and screw holes with non-oil type putty or wood filler. Apply water based caulk as needed to fill all voids and cracks. Caulked areas may need at least 12 hours to properly dry. Apply 1 coat of EcoDomus Matte with a brush or a paint sprayer, and allow to dry for at least 4 hours. Apply successive coats of EcoDomus Matte according to instructions. When painting on wood it is suggested to adjust dilutions with water as necessary to achieve maximum effect for smoothness and coverage desired. Typical dilutions may be up or down by 5 – 10% as a rule.

EcoDomus Matte may be applied to most types of wood products without using a primer. This application is suggested only for wood products that do not contain high natural resin content. Surface products to be painted must be tested prior to application of paint, or contact a manufacturer consultant. Prime and lightly sand 1st coat, and then apply a 2nd coat. Always test adherence to any type of wood product prior to full commitment of finish coats.

EcoDomus Matte will read non-desirable textures existing on the wood surfaces. For best results prime with 1st coat and lightly sand, then apply a 2nd coat.

CAULKS

EcoDomus Matte will adhere to most non solvent-based caulks, acrylic caulks and some silicone water-based caulks. Always test product for adhesion verification prior to painting any surface. Silicone caulks cannot be painted with any type of paint.

SLAKED LIME PLASTERS & STUCCOS

INTERIOR ONLY: EcoDomus Matte can be applied directly to slaked lime plasters and stuccos like BioCement GF, BioMarmorino Satin. Apply 1 coat of EcoForte Consolidator and allow to dry for at least 8 – 12 hours. Apply one (1) coat of BioGrip Micro as a primer and allow to dry for at least 8 – 12 hours. Apply EcoDomus Matte as indicated in GENERAL APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS.

NEW CEMENT STUCCOS

INTERIOR ONLY: New portland cement stucco should not be painted for about 21 – 28 days to ensure proper curing, anchoring and drying. Apply 1 coat of EcoForte Consolidator and allow to dry for at least 8 – 12 hours. Apply two (2) coats of EcoDomus Matte as indicated in GENERAL APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS.

CAUTION!

New portland cement stuccos should be tested for pH using Phenolphthalein, also sold as an “alkalinity test kit”. This product should be spot tested on all new portland cement stucco prior to the application of any type of finish, paint or stucco product. Concrete has a naturally high pH due to the calcium hydroxide formed when portland cement reacts with water. As the concrete reacts with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, pH decreases to 8.5 – 10.5. When a 1% phenolphthalein solution is applied to uncured concrete, it turns bright pink/purple; if it remains colorless, it shows that the concrete has undergone correct carbonation. When the test indicates bright pink or purple, this indicates that no paint or plaster product of any type should be applied to the concrete until carbonization has been completed, which usually occurs after 21 – 28 days after final installation.

DECAYING OR CRUMBLING STUCCOS OR POWDERY SURFACES

INTERIOR ONLY: Chalking surfaces, which could prevent the proper anchoring of the base coating must have damaged and chalky portions be removed by pressure washing and scraping. Apply Potassium Silicate Concentrate, diluted 100% with water (1:1) on all damaged surfaces, applying 2 – 3 coats in rapid succession, wet on wet, until substrate has arrived at full absorption, and allow to dry for at least 12 hours. Apply 1 coat EcoForte Consolidator, allow to dry for at least 8 – 12 hours. Apply two (2) coats of EcoDomus Matte as indicated in GENERAL APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS.

COATINGS WITH EFFLORESCENCE

INTERIOR ONLY: Cement surfaces showing efflorescence should be aggressively cleaned with a high pressure washer, and then the efflorescence should be treated using a diluted muriatic acid, 1 part muriatic acid and 6 – 7 parts water, and allow to react for 3 – 5 minutes. Thoroughly rinse treated areas with water. Apply Potassium Silicate Concentrate, diluted 100% with water (1:1) on all damaged surfaces and allow to dry for at least 8 – 12 hours. Apply 1 coat EcoForte© Consolidator (diluted according to instructions), and allow to dry for at least 8 – 12 hours. For best use apply BioGrip Micro, diluted with water 30%, and allow to dry for at least 8 – 12 hours. Apply two (2) coats of EcoDomus Matte as indicated in GENERAL APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS. For coatings on surfaces damaged by the saltpeter or efflorescence no guarantees can be provided.

AGED CEMENT STUCCOS

INTERIOR ONLY: When new stucco repairs are performed on older cement stuccos, apply EcoForte Consolidator diluted 100% with water (1:1), to older surfaces prior to applying new cement stucco. Apply EcoForte Consolidator on new repairs and allow to dry to 8 – 12 hours. Dirty and/or contaminated surfaces should be cleaned. Stucco damaged by algae or mold should be treated with EcoDis. Apply two (2) coats of EcoDomus Matte as indicated in GENERAL APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS.

STUCCO REPAIRS

See AGED CEMENT STUCCOS above.

BRICK

INTERIOR ONLY: Apply EcoDomus Matte to brick as indicated for instructions for New Drywall or Painted Drywall. To reduce excessive texture created from rolling or hand brush work, apply with a sprayer.

STORAGE

Store in a cool, dry place, protected from frost. Close the open containers with care. Store liquids only in plastic. Transfer unused paint into smaller containers to create a full bucket, reducing exposure to air. For best results turn bucket upside-down to prevent air leaking into container.

Warning!

Do not apply any products in direct exposure to strong/hot sunlight, rain, mist, high humidity (> 80%), at dew-point formation, or in the presence of strong wind. Beware of the danger of frost overnight. If applied by roller or sprayer, protect surrounding surfaces as necessary. Protect eyes and skin from splashes of paint. Cover glass, ceramic, natural stone, brick, metal, wood, painted surfaces and glazed tiles. Clean affected areas immediately with water. Prominent elements of the building (cornices, parapets, etc.,) should be treated with skill, covering flashings, gutters, copper coatings, etc. …

Do not work in air temperature lower than 8°C / 46°F and not above 31°C / 88°F. Clean work tools with water immediately after use. Keep out of reach of children.
