Silicon A3 is a water-based, silicon adulterated, acrylic, decorative and matte exterior coating material which gives the surface a texture of thick grains.
It is decorative since it offers wide range of colors. By using different techniques, numerous decoration and texture combinations can be obtained.
Since our product is produced by using high quality silicon additives, it is resistant to different climatic conditions, its color does not fade and it doesn't crack, peel, blister nor moulder. It is resistant to water, humidity and impacts. Since it is produced by using acrylic binder of Swiss Clariant, it completely adheres and corresponds with the surface.
It is easily applied. It saves you time and labour.
It is water-based. It doesn't contain any substances that are harmful for human health and environment. It has a high value of vapour permeability and lets the applied surfaces breathe. It keeps molds, bacterias and microbes away.
- Plaster, Stucco
- Paste Backfilled Surfaces
- Concrete Surfaces of Prefabricated Buildings
- Undercoated Metal Surfaces
- Old Painted Surfaces
To avoid the water loss of Silicon A3 and get better adherence to the wall, 1 kg Izole Lak Pure Acrylic Primer should be mixed with 5 lt of water and must be applied to the wall by using brush or paint roller until the surface is saturated. Acrylic Putty must be applied for slight imperfections and Rustik Putty must be applied for subtler imperfections.
Silicon A3 must be reduced by using approximately 20% water and it has to be applied as two layers by paint roller. 12 hours are needed between coats.
The surface becomes dry in 12 hours under the temperature of 20oC and 65% humidity conditons. It takes 36 hours to be resistant to impacts and dry completely.
For the application of Silicon A3, the surface must be stable and solid. So if it is applied in a new construction, four weeks are needed for the hardening of the cement.
Izole Lak Pure Acrylic Primer: 0.020-0.030 kg/m2
Silicon A3: 0.850-0.950 kg/m2
The material must be stored in cool environments and must be prevented against frost. The product should be used within 12 months.
Silicon A3 is packaged and introduced to the market as 25 kg poliethylene buckets.
