Coloured silicon resin-based base paint in water dispersion for filling and evening out surfaces. Silancolor Base Coat is a coloured base product made from silicon resin in water dispersion, micro-granular quartz and selected aggregates which, once applied, evens out the absorbency of the substrate and promotes bonding of successive coats of paint and thick dressing materials from the Silancolor range. Silancolor Base Coat is used to prepare cementitious surfaces before applying a coat of coloured finish, to even out the absorbency of the substrate and to promote a good bond. Silancolor Base Coat is indispensable when applying finishing products with a "scratch-effect" surface, to avoid transparency of the underlying substrate. Silancolor Base Coat may be used to even out the surface, to form a more uniform finish and to cover small imperfections. If applied in white or in a colour similar to that of the final coat, it is particularly useful to help integration of the coloured finishing cycle, when bright colours which only partially cover the surface are used. Silancolor Base Coat works in synergy with coloured finishes, to increase the duration of the protective finish and increase the water repellence of Silancolor finishing systems. Surfaces treated with Silancolor Base Coat have a uniformly rough finish, which makes it easier to apply layered dressing materials, particularly when applied by trowel. This results in a more even distribution of the dressing material over the entire surface. Silancolor Base Coat is available in a wide range of colours, created using the ColorMap® automatic tinting system.
Consumption 0.4-0.5 kg/m2 per coat. Consumption is heavily influenced by the roughness of the substrate and by imperfections on the surface, and according to the application technique used.
