Surface preparation


  • This coating is designed to be applied over an alkyd primer/undercoat e.g. Luxaprime 1250 or Berger Undercoat as well as on all water based primers and sealers.
  • The surface to be coated must be clean and free from all loose extraneous materials such as loose paint, dust, etc.
  • For new concrete, cure it for 21 days before application of coating. The moisture content of the concrete surface should be checked and ensured to be below 6% when measured with a reliable moisture meter, such as the Sovereign Moisture Meter.
  • Soluble salts on the surface must be removed by washing with fresh water. Dry brushing needs to be done to remove dirt and dust. If grease is present, use a mild detergent or solvent and rinse thoroughly to ensure complete removal of the grease, detergent and solvent.
  • All loose flaking coatings should be removed and taken back to a firm edge.
  • Berger Aluminium Wood Primer should be used to prime wooden substrates. A build coat of Berger Undercoat is recommended prior to application of this product.
  • For over coating over old coatings, high pressure water cleaning should be performed to remove all loose or flaking coatings and ensure the remaining coatings are tightly adherent.
