THE CORRECT PROCESSING

CAPAROL ICONS FINEST WALL PAINT MATT FINISH & FINEST WALL PAINT SILK FINISH

The correct Application of our interior paints and primer in three steps:

1. THE RIGHT BASE

The even, matt surface of CAPAROL ICONS requires perfectly smooth walls. For best results we recommend a smooth fleece (AkkordVlies Z 150 S or Z 150 K) or fine plaster (Q4).

2. THE RIGHT PRIMER

  • Always apply  CAPAROL ICONS FINEST WALL PAINT PRIMER first.
  • Choose the CAPAROL ICONS primer matching the colour shade from the nine primers NO 001 - NO 009 according to the table at the bottom of this page. The primer table is also available in the colour fan and in our technical information sheet.
  • The material is ready for processing, do not dilute
  • Fill into the paint tray or paint bucket, e.g. into the CAPAROL ICONS 10l refill container
  • Stir well before use
  • Use paint grid
  • Use the Caparol FineRoller for application 
  • Apply one layer 
  • Drying time: minimum 4 hours, depending on the climate

3. THE CORRECT PROCESSING

  • CAPAROL ICONS FINEST WALL PAINT MATT/SILK FINISH is ready for use, do not dilute.
  • Fill into paint tray or paint bucket, e.g. into the CAPAROL ICONS 10l refill container.
  • Stir well before use
  • Use paint grid
  • Use the Caparol FineRoller for application; Two top coats, each to be applied thinly
  • The opacity may vary depending on the colour shade, apply another coat depending on the desired colour depth.
  • Drying time: up to 4-6 hours per coat

IMPORTANT NOTE:

The delivery time of CAPAROL ICONS products can take up to five working days, as  colours are produced on demand in the highest manufacturing quality.

The correct processing of Metallic interior paints and primer in three steps

The processing steps "1. The right base" and "2. The right primer" are identical to those for FINEST WALL PAINT MATT/SILK FINISH.

The application of the top coat differs as follows:

3. THE CORRECT APPLICATION OF METALLIC SHADES AND TEXTURING OF THE SURFACE

  • CAPAROL ICONS FINEST WALL PAINT METALLIC FINISH is ready for use, do not dilute
  • For application of CAPAROL ICONS FINEST WALL PAINT METALLIC FINISH we recommend the use of a Caparol FineRoller
  • Roll on the first top coat a little thicker and then texture individually with an oval brush or Venetian spatula.
  • Roll on the second top coat a little thicker and then texture individually with an oval brush or Venetian trowel.
  • Drying time: up to 4-6 hours per coat

PLEASE NOTE:

  • FINEST WALL PAINT METALLIC FINISH is deliberately not opaque (semi-transparent) so that the greatest possible metallic effect is achieved.
  • FINEST WALL PAINT METALLIC FINISH does not allow an untextured surface, comparable to that of a metallic finish.
  • Spray application of FINEST WALL PAINT METALLIC FINISH is not recommended due to the product’s typical material properties.
  • The three metallic colours NO 12 Silverizing, NO 25 After Hour, and NO 76 Glam Rock are only available as interior paints, not as varnishes.
  • Each metallic shade has its own specific primer shade: NO 007 for NO 76 Glam Rock, NO 008 for NO 25 After Hour, NO 009 for NO 12 Silverizing.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE:

The delivery time of CAPAROL ICONS products can take up to five working days, as all colours are produced on demand in the highest manufacturing quality.
