Aquamarijn Maril white matt emulsion

Uses
Aquamarijn Maril emulsion is designed for use on all interior walls and ceilings such as previously painted surfaces, new and old plaster, walls covered in lining paper / wallpaper and most sound mineral surfaces.

Properties
Aquamarijn Maril emulsion has a matt finish and is scrubbable to DIN 53778. It is low odour, being free of noxious chemical content. The absence of plastic resins results in static free and breathable surfaces. Maril is bound with emulsified linseed oil and is 100% free of solvents.

Colours
Supplied as a base white, a wide range of natural colours can be obtained by adding Holzweg / Volvox Natural Earth and Mineral Pigments. The pigment should be pre-soaked before being added to the emulsion. Simply pour the desired amount of pigment in to a jam jar, or similar container with a lid, add enough water to make a pigment solution and shake to ensure that all the pigment is soaked. Leave this mixture for at least 5 minutes then add to the emulsion and stir in well. The tinted emulsion is now ready to use.

Containers
2.5, 5 and 10 litres – 2.5 and 5 litres are recycled stainless steel or plastic tubs and 10 litres are supplied in recycled plastic tubs.

Coverage
1 litre will cover approx. 8-10 m², depending on surface absorbency.

Voc Level
0.13%

Preparation
All existing coats that are water-soluble, such as whitewash or some older types of distemper, must be washed off completely before painting. Loose particles of old paint etc., should be removed with a brush or scraper. Gloss paints or lacquers must be sanded.

Application
The emulsion can be applied by either brush, roller or spray. Stir well. Thick coats should be avoided. On lightly coloured or unpatterned surfaces one coat may be sufficient but a better result is achieved if two coats are applied. On new plaster (which should be allowed to dry for at least 2 weeks before attempting to decorate), apply a priming coat of 20% water thinned emulsion before applying two further coats. Concrete and other masonry and powdery surfaces should be primed with Aquamarijn Impril Impregnating Primer. Brushes and tools can be cleaned with water and soap.

Drying times
Dustfree dry ± 2 hours; Recoatable ± 8 hours

Storage
Store sealed in a cool dry, but frost free place. The paint can be kept for a minimum of one year unopened. Opened tubs should be resealed with tape. Tip: Remove any paint residue from around the lid before sealing. This will prevent contamination of the unused paint when the tub is re-opened.

Pigment and fillers: titanium dioxide (recycled), chalk, dolomite, calcium, water, synthetic preservative (approved for use in food packaging by the BGA and FDA*).
