Physical and chemical data
- Basis of the binder: Modified acrylic resins
- Colour: light grey
- Consistency: paste-like
750 ml are sufficient for approx. 0.4 m²
- Drying time (at 20°C, 65% relative air humidity):
Dust-dry: after approx. 3 hours
Dry to touch: after approx. 2 days
Coatable: after 8 days
Fully dry: after approx. 14 days
The drying time depends on surrounding temperature, air humidity and absorpitivity of the ground. Excessive layer thickness and missing air movement can delay the drying process.
- Storage stability:
2 years if appropriate storage provided (=10°-25°C, relative air humidity of max. 60%) in the unopened original container.
