KEIM Royalan Dilution is a part of the KEIM Royalan paint system. It is used to dilute the first coat of KEIM Royalan paint.
It can also be used as a primer to reduce the porosity of lime render and other highly absorbant surfaces before the first coat of paint is applied.
All loose, flaking and unstable materials must be removed back to a sound edge; edges should be feathered in using sand or emery paper.
Ensure that any paint materials left remaining and the underlying substrate are sound and adhering well.
Any glossy or shiny surfaces should be thoroughly flattened down using sand or emery paper to create a good key.
Treat any surfaces affected by mould, fungal or lichen growth and kill algae spores.
All surfaces must be thoroughly washed down with clean cold water to remove all surface dirt and dust.
After suitable preparation, the product can be applied by brush, roller or airless spray. It requires at least 12 hours to dry before application of subsequent coats.
Refer to application of KEIM Royalan paint for specific directions on usage of dilution.
