APPLICATION CYCLE INSTRUCTIONS

BRUSH AND ROLLER APPLICATIONS

1ST COAT     Dilute EcoCer Varnish Satin with 40% water, maximum 4 liters of water per one (1) 10-liter bucket of EcoCer Varnish Satin. Apply varnish with a high quality brush in an even and constant pattern, so that a perfect coverage is achieved. Allow to dry for at least 8 hours before applying 2nd coat. Wash paint brushes immediately with soap and water after completion of use. It is advised not to use rollers for high quality finishes, both for floors and for cabinets. A floor wand can be used for applications on floors but it is suggested to be used as 3nd coat only to provide a more even finish if required. Allow EcoCer Varnish Satin to dry naturally, do not use dryers, heat guns, or heat lamps to force dry product.

2ND COAT     Dilute EcoCer Varnish Satin with 20% water, maximum 2 liters of water to one (1) 10-liter bucket. Apply varnish in an even and constant pattern, so that a perfect coverage is achieved. For wet bars, under-counter sinks, and countertops it is suggested to apply 1 additional coat (3rd coat) of 20% diluted EcoCer Varnish Satin.

When using EcoCer Varnish Satin as a sealer/consolidator, product can be diluted from 100% – 300% (1 – 3 liters water added per 1 liter of varnish) depending on application needs. When applying EcoCer Stain, BioCalce Classico, BioDomus, and TerraMare Velatura, on wood surfaces, the sealer dilution permits successive applications of different products to create unusual architectural/designer finishes. Brush application should be used on floor and cabinet finishes, or roller applications can be used on large flat surfaces. Always test surface finish sheen and texture when using a roller application. Use a very short nap roller height (Omega roller cover Velor or Mohair, 4 – 6 mm height) rolling in a even and consistent manner.

PAINT SPRAYERS

1ST COAT     To provide sufficient mil thickness and protection from oils and water, apply 2 coats with a brush on all cabinet finishes (see brush instructions above), lightly sanding or steel wool to remove undesirable textures, before applying a spray finish. Remove all dust from surfaces carefully, using a tack cloth or soft rag prior to applying EcoCer Varnish Satin with a sprayer. Spray at an even distance and in a consistent pattern to provide a professional finish.

2ND COAT     Application with a 2nd coat is not necessary except in the case to increase the level of the quality of the finish. Maintenance of spray equipment is a priority to create excellent finishes.

SPRAY TIP USAGE     Apply paint product with a # 0.011 – 0.013mm size spray tip for airless sprayers and compressor spray guns. Always use new spray tips for starting a paint job for best results. Test spray capacity of spray tip before starting production work. This will also conserve the amount of paint necessary to complete the job.

MIXING VARNISH & WATER

Most of our paint and varnish formulas are concentrated and require water to be added to them for proper use. This process means we can sell more coverage in an economic package that decreases the cost for transport, reduces the carbon footprint, helping the your pocket book and the environment.

Mix Varnish And Water With An Electric Drill And Paint Paddle For Large Quantities At The Lowest Velocity, Or Mix Well By Hand! If Water Is Sitting On The Top Of Your Mixture, The Paint Is Not Properly Mixed!

TOOLS

Apply with a high quality brush, roller, or with an appropriate sprayer and sprayer tip. New sprayer tips should be used to prevent product waste and provided for a more perfect finish. Neoprene type floor wands should be used for best results.

DRYING TIME

Allow a drying time between coats of at least 8 hours for floors, and for applying multiple layers with different materials, allow 8 hours per coat, per material. For application on furniture and cabinets, drying time will depend on size of area painted, humidity, heat, cold; allow 4 hours minimum, test for dryness before applying a 2nd coat. Optimum time allowance is 8 hours between coats.

EcoCer Varnish Satin is usually tack free in 2 – 4 hours depending on humidity and temperature. With lower temperature and humidity more time may be needed. If sanding is required between coats, allow 24 hours of drying prior to sanding. When possible, allow 72 hours to permit proper handling and transport after application of final coat. Allow 14 days to achieve maximum durability and strength. Avoid exposure to water and ice for at least 7 days, and great care must be given to avoid over extended exposure to water until 14 days has passed. Ideal temperature for application is between 18°C / 60°F – 29°C / 85°F.

CONSUMPTION/COVERAGE

Approximately 2,000 ft2 / 186 mt2 average per 10 liters bucket, 1 coat, diluted 20% – 40% when applying 2 coats. Approximately 200 ft2 / 18.7 mt2 average per 1 liter bucket, 1 coat, diluted 20% – 40% when applying 2 coats. Approximate US Gallon equivalent coverage 756 ft2 for 1 coat coverage. Determine exact consumption by performing a test on the surface to be treated.

PACKAGING

Plastic buckets of 1, 5 and 10 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.

VIRGIN WOOD FLOORS

Wood floors should be pre-sanded as required by a professional floor finisher. If a stain color is desired, apply EcoCer Stain to wood according to instructions, and any additional applications as may be required such as lime wash or lime consolidator. Allow all pre-varnish finishes to dry 8 hours before application of EcoCer Varnish Satin. Apply 1st and 2nd coat according to instructions indicated above.

EXISTING VARNISHED FLOORS

EcoCer Varnish Satin cannot be applied over previously varnished floors except in the case where EcoCer Varnishes have been applied previously. For re-coats applied after installation of finished floors, it is advised to floor screen the finish and apply another coat diluted at 20%. EcoCer Varnish is formulated to be applied on clean, sanded, ready-to-stain wood. Wood floors should be pre-sanded as required by a professional floor finisher. If a stain color is desired, apply EcoCer Stain to wood according to instructions, and any additional applications as may be required such as lime wash or lime consolidator. Allow all pre-varnish finishes to dry 8 hours before application of EcoCer Varnish Satin. Apply 1st and 2nd coat according to instructions indicated above.

NEW WOOD CABINETS & FURNITURE

Solid wood cabinets and furniture should be pre-sanded as required by a professional finisher. If a stain color is desired, apply EcoCer Stain to wood according to instructions, and any additional applications as may be required such as lime wash or consolidator. Allow all pre-varnish finishes to dry 8 hours before application of EcoCer Varnish Satin. Apply 1st and 2nd coat according to instructions indicated above both for brush and paint sprayers. Cabinet and furniture finishes require at least two (2)-coats of EcoCer Varnish Satin be applied by brush to provide sufficient mil thickness for protection against oils and water. A 3rd coat may be sprayed to create a smooth luster finish.

VENEERED WOOD

EcoCer Varnish Satin is ideal for solid wood but depending on the type of veneer, what type of glues and or veneer system used, the type of base the veneer was attached to, may be problematic for the penetration of EcoCer Varnishes into veneered wood surfaces. To facilitate proper penetration on wood veneers, dilute EcoCer Varnish Satin with water 100%, and allow drying. Then follow instructions applying EcoCer Varnish diluted 40% with water, 2nd coat, and then 20% water, for the 3rd coat. Perform several tests to verify adherence and durability prior to beginning commencement of the application of your finishes. Some wood veneer systems will not permit penetration of varnish.

PAINTED FINISHES

EcoCer Varnish Satin can be applied to new water-based paints, providing that careful tests have been preformed to assure adherence to such materials. All pre-painted finishes on wood require that they be lightly sanded so as permit penetration of EcoCer Varnish Satin into the surface pours of the paint. These types of applications do not guarantee that sufficient adherence will provide high traffic resistance as compared when applied to sanded floors. When applying EcoCer Varnish Satin to porous painted materials such as BioCalce Classico, BioDomus, and TerraMare Velatura, product must be diluted appropriately to assure proper penetration. These types of finishes are technically difficult and require that applicator contact distributor to acquire training and correct application techniques.

SLAKED LIME PLASTERS & STUCCOS

EcoCer Varnish Satin can be applied to slaked lime plasters and stuccos like BioCement GF, BioMarmorino Satin. This method of application is suggested only for commercial environments, or for kitchen and bathroom areas where water, grease and oils may stain plaster finishes. EcoCer Varnish Satin should be diluted 200% with water and applied by roller or spray paint. When using a roller application it may be required to pass over the freshly painted surfaces with a fine plaster trowel to flatten any roller nap when on smooth plaster surfaces. It is suggested to apply only one (1)-coat of diluted product on medium smooth and rough plaster surfaces, products. For very smooth surfaces up to two (2)-coats is suggested. Always test product and application prior to applying EcoCer Varnish Satin. EcoCer Varnishes will slightly enhance color tonality by 10% and will leave a slight sheen on mid smooth and rough plaster surfaces using one (1)-coat, and two (2)-coats will leave a smooth luster finish. Always pre-test plaster finishes carefully on sample boards carefully before using this method!

Decaying or Crumbling Stuccos or Powdery Surfaces

Chalking surfaces, which could prevent the proper anchoring of the base coating must be removed and pressure washed. Apply Potassium Silicate Concentrate, diluted 100% with water (1:1) on all damaged surfaces, applying 2 – 3 coats in rapid succession and allow to dry for at least 12 hours. Apply 1 coat of EcoForte Consolidator diluted 50% with water, and allow to dry for at least 12 hours. Apply 2 coats of EcoCer Varnish Satin according to instructions.

STORAGE
