SANAXIL P consists of potassium silicate and natural pigments. It has very high breathability, remarkable mildewcide and antibacterial properties. It has no solvents, thinners, harmful substances and toxic emissions in general, and does not have thermoplastic effects.

Use fields

Restoring and decorative paints for internal and external environments.

Preparation of supports

Application surfaces should be clean, free of soiling, crumbling and non-adhering parts, dust, etc., conveniently saturated with water until they reach the condition "saturated with dry surface". Pre-existing paints (washable, organic, solvent based etc. ) must be thoroughly removed.

Preliminarily treat the support with the fixative SANAXIL FIX.

Use method

Apply SANAXIL P, using a brush, roller or spray, in the number of coats required by the absorption condition of the support. SANAXIL P is "dust-free" (it has started to be consistent to the touch) after about 1 hour. It can be overcoated after 4-6 hours, while it will be dry in-depth after 10-16 hours.

SANAXIL P can be used as such or diluted with SANAXIL FIX, at a rate of 15-20% by weight.

Warnings, precautions and Ecology

Do not apply on surfaces in gypsum, on non-hardened surfaces, on wet or hot surfaces, with direct sunlight. Avoid prolonged direct exposure of the fresh surfaces to the wind and the sunshine.

During application, protect glass, enamelled metals, aluminium, polished tiles etc., which may be opacified by accidental contact with silicate solutions.

Colours may vary slightly depending on the temperature conditions at the time of laying and during the drying and dessication stages, the colour may be subject to slight variations.
