Product DescriptionRobust, elastic and very colour fast facade paint. Water- and weather-resistant and provides a surface with an insignificant dirt-absorption. Carbon dioxide from the air does not penetrate surfaces treated with Flügger Facade Concrete. This carbonatization inhibitory effect thus prevents deterioration of the concrete surface. Furthermore, reinforcing bars in in concrete protect against rust (high chloride density). At the same time, the surface is diffusion-open letting out water vapour from the inside. Hampers formation of mould on the surface. Withstands high pressure cleaning: Max. 80 bar, min. 30 cm from the substrate, water temp. max. 30°C.
- Matte and maximum weather resistance
- Protects concrete from degradation
- Highly colour retentive
UsageNew, untreated mineral facades such as concrete, lightweight concrete and previously painted substrates treated with acrylic paint.
SubstrateMust be clean, dry, firm and suitable for surface treatment.
The surface must be completely dry containing no efflorescence.
Rising ground moisture or moisture from cracks, protrusions such as water traps, uncovered wall coping or other constructions details must not be permitted.
New, cement-based surfaces must be cured for at least 4 weeks before undergoing treatment.
Precipitates from salt and other water-soluble components must not be permitted.
Cement-bound surfaces must be treated at the earliest after 4 weeks, brick at the earliest after 2 years.
Not used for substrates joined or plastered with pure lime mortar.
TreatmentRemove precipitates, loose material and paint by washing and cleaning.
Dirt, grease and contaminants should be removed using Façade Clean.
Algae, mould and mould growth are removed by cleaningwith Façade Algae Remover.
Larger cracks and other damage must be filled with cement-bound material.
Prime new substrates and light chalking or absorbent surfaces using Flügger Facade Primer.
Treat two or more times for optimal durability.
ApplicationBrush, roller or spray gun.
Decide on your mode of application according to the desired finish.
Apply uniformly wet on wet, finish by brushing in the same direction.
Always use the same batch no. on contiguous/unbroken surfaces.
Cold / heat can affect the viscosity of the material.
Material temperature for spray painting, min. 15°C.
Condensation must be prevented during drying/curing.
Avoid working in rain or direct sunlight.
Cold and increased humidity extends drying time, full curing and recoating interval.
Increased temperature and low atmospheric humidity reduce drying time and full curing.
Always test adhesion and result before hanging.
Withstands high pressure washing: Max. 80 bar, min. 30 cm from the substrate, water temperature max. 30°C.
The durability of the surface depends on construction, how it is applied and exposure. The expected durability can therefore be shorter or longer than stated.
Chalking from strong shades due to excess pigment may occur.
There can be differences in shades due to uneven substrates and exposure.

Be AwareProtect freshly painted surface from adverse weather conditions.
Take appropriate measures against the effects of moisture and rainfall on freshly painted surfaces.
The surface achieves maximum robustness when fully cured.
Storage: Cool, frost-free and tightly closed
Protection equipment for: Spray painting: painting suit, full face mask with combined filter. Painting: eye protection, gloves. Sanding: respiratory protection.
Environment information: Clean off the paint from tools and wash them with water. Bring remains of fluent paint to the local recycling centre. Minimize your paint waste by pre-estimating how much paint you need. Keep the leftover paint for future use so you can effectively reduce the environmental impact.
