BIOFA EUROMIN-Fixative solvent-free Art. Nr. 1440

Properties
Colourless primer on potassium-sodium silicate basis used for saturating and
hardening highly absorbent and sanding sub-surfaces. For use with all BIO WALL
PAINTS, interior and exterior and as a thinner for EUROMIN SILICATE PAINT.

Warning! Do not apply to dispersion paints and hydrophobic sub-surfaces.

INGREDIENTS
Water, potassium-sodium silicate, pure acrylate, organic ammonia compounds,
anionic tenside from coconut oil, fatty acid polyether derivative, poly siloxane.

Steps:
1. Pre-treatment
The sub-surface must be dry, stable, absorbent and clean. Clean with a high pressure cleaner if necessary. Remove any old coats of mineral-based paint thoroughly and remove loose parts. Thoroughly brush off sanding sub-surfaces.

Cover up alkali-sensitive surfaces!

Repair damage to plaster as well as hairline cracks and cracks from shrinkage using
mineral-based spackle. Remove any formwork oil residues and lime sinter layers
with a suitable cleaner or solvent or sand and re-wash. Layers of glue, dispersion,
latex, oil and artificial resin are to be removed completely. No residue should be
left.

Before painting older facade surfaces [exteriors], dirt, mildew, mould, moss or algae
must be thoroughly removed using a high pressure cleaner. In the case of facades
that were or are overgrown, all plant materials including adhesive pollens, must be
completely removed mechanically and/or by burning them off. Otherwise, you may later see penetration or discolouration from these organic residues. Paint can also
flake off of these locations. .
Important Note: Various substances such as lignin, nicotine, rust, various salts and
even moisture, etc. from the sub-surface can penetrate and cause discolorations
or differences in colour when coating different sub-surfaces with water-base, open porous coating systems. Be sure to test the surface for suitability and perform testsl on sample surfaces.

2. Preparation
Stir the universal-fixative thoroughly and apply one coat using rollers, brushes or a
paint sprayer. Repeat until the sub-surface is evenly saturated. If needed, thin with
water.
Warning! Perform tests! If using inside, provide optimal fresh air circulation! If using
outside, do not prepare at temperatures below 5°C or intense heat (over
35°C the shade) or in intense sunlight. At temperatures exceeding 30°C, we recommend pre-wetting the sub-surfaces before applying the first coat.
3. Cleaning Tools
Clean with water immediately after use.
Drying
Can be painted over after 16-24 hours.

Consumption/ Yield per Coat

Ca. 100-125 mll/m² or 8-10 m²/l, depends however very much on the composition
and absorbency of the sub-surface.
Storage
Store in a cool, dry, frost-free place. Opened containers should
be prepared promptly. Minimum shelf life is 12 months.
Container
1 l / 5 l / 20 l PE- or PP-container
Safety Notices
Keep out of reach of children. Protect eyes and skin from paint sprayers. In case of
contact with eyes, skin or other alkali sensitive sub-surfaces such as lacquer,
wood, metal, plastic, glass, natural stone, brick, ceramic, etc. thoroughly rinse with
water immediately. When using in a sprayer, do not breathe in the spray vapour.
Do not let it get into the sewer or drainage system or into the ground.
Disposal
Take residual amounts of liquid product to collection sites for used paint/lacquer or
dispose of them in compliance with any and all local regulations. Small residual
amounts and soaked working materials can be disposed of with the household
garbage after they dry.
Only turn in packages that are clean or free of residues or have hardened adhesions
for recycling or disposal according to local regulations! Packages that cannot be
cleaned or emptied properly are to be treated and disposed of like the product
itself!
