Interior Walls

Why in certain points of the dyed surface blots and mould are presented?

Reasons:
Increased humidity
Solution:
In case that the blots are caused by the accumulated humidity, initially it’s essential to be faced the reasons that caused it and then we should let the surface dry.
Cleaning of the surface with anti-mold or liquid bleach in solution with water is required.
This procedure is recommended to be done at least twice.
Then apply waterbased primer Tetradur of TETRALUX if there are loose spots.
Then two layers of antimould, thermoceramic, energy, emulsion paint Thermolux interior of TETRALUX.

Why the paint is removed as dust when it is rubbed?

Reasons:

The reason is the bad quality of the paint or the application to a very thin layer.

Solution:

  1. Clean the surface from the dust.
  2. Use water-based primer Tetradur of TETRALUX.
  3. Apply two layers of ecological emulsion paint Super Ecolux or Elite of TETRALUX.
Why does the painted wall show peeling - cracking in some places?

Reasons:

The paint has not adhered well due to:

  1. Inadequate surface preparation (application of paint on a very absorbent surface without being primed).
  2. Application of bad quality paint.
  3. Application of paint at very low temperatures.
  4. Traped moisture on the wall.
  5. Apply paint to a new wall before the expiration of one month required for the surface to regulate its excessive alkalinity.

Solution:

In case the peeling is due to accumulated moisture, it is necessary first to address the causes that caused it and to pass the drying time.
The following procedure is recommended, which also applies to the other causes:

  1. Cleaning the surface by scratching or scrubbing and plastering where necessary.
  2. Prime with Tetradur water-based primer by TETRALUX.

Solution:

It is recommended to paint the surface with a coat of Super 100% acrylic paint by TETRALUX in normal conditions.

Why do aspirins (salts) appear on a painted surface in the form of powder?

Reasons:

  1. Before painting the surface, the existing salts were not removed.
  2. There were capillary cracks from which moisture penetrated, dragging water-soluble salts to the outer surface.
  3. Moisture appeared inside the wall or which was released (coming out) by entraining water-soluble salts from the plaster or concrete.
  4. There is increased ambient humidity which due to a thin layer of paint has penetrated and when it comes out it carries away salts.

Solution:

In case the asprils are due to moisture, it is necessary to first address the causes that caused it and to pass the necessary drying time.
Then we follow the following procedure:

  1. Rubbing the surface, removing salts and rinsing with clean water.
  2. Prime with Tetradur water-based or solvent-based primer byTETRALUX.
