Rubber paint

Chemical technology

This product is an acrylic emulsion , created on a water-dispersion basis using synthetic acrylate latex - a material with increased elasticity, resistance to aggressive temperature conditions and extremely low hygroscopicity.

In addition to water, the chemical composition of the paint also includes the following elements:

  • coalescent - a functional additive that provides increased adhesion of the applied layer to the treated surface, and, in addition, during natural evaporation (up to 97% for 3 hours at a temperature of 25 ° C), it creates an external protective film;
  • antifreeze additive - a substance that regulates the rate of hardening of the coating and is active counteracts the aggressive effects of temperatures;
  • antifungal additive - a chemical compound that destroys and long-term prevents the growth of pathogenic fungi and mold;
  • tinting additive - colored paste containing an inorganic pigment with increased lightfastness.

Properties of rubber paint

Operational and technical characteristics of rubber paint

  1. Withstands temperature differences from -50 ° to 50 ° С (especially resistant - from 80 ° to -80 ° С).

  2. Not sensitive to environmental influences.
  3. Hydrophobic, water-repellent.
  4. Has increased adhesive properties, providing the highest quality adhesion of layers to the treated surface.
  5. Prevents corrosion when the metal is properly prepared for painting.
  6. After complete drying, it prevents slipping.

  7. Non-toxic and scent that can be stained without a respirator.
  8. Fire resistant.
  9. Matt (for roofing works - semi-matt).
  10. Perfectly tolerates cleaning (including with a brush) with water, antiseptic, alkaline and other detergents.

After complete drying, it is warm to the touch, the structure resembles rubber or soft rubber, elasticity is not less than 350%.

Advantages of rubber paint

Ratio of volume to weight: in one liter 1.1 kg of paint.

One layer of 50 microns (average thickness of the primary coating applied with a brush) completely cures in 12 hours, stops sticking - after 2-3 hours at a temperature of 25 ° C.

Dry residue - up to 50%.

Features of rubber paints

The warranty period of the coating is 10 years (especially wear-resistant up to 20).

The shelf life of a closed container is up to 3 years, after opening the container - up to 6 months.

Storage conditions: in a closed or (after opening) hermetically sealed container at temperatures from -5 ° to 25 ° C. When cooled and frozen (5 cycles, but not more than 30 days to -20 ° C), the paint can be thawed, leaving it at room temperature for a day.

Before use, be sure to stir until the bottom sediment disappears.

Practical application and interaction with other materials

Despite the different purpose indicated on the container: "For the roof", "For concrete", "For metal", all rubber paint has almost identical properties, with the only difference that a more active pigment is added to the "For the roof" composition, "For concrete" contains more acrylatex and antifreeze, and "For metal" differs in the amount of coalescent.

General recommendations for working with rubber paint

The exception is very expensive paint production, the warranty period of which is 25-30 years - it is considered to be really particularly wear-resistant.

The definition "for outdoor use" is also an incomplete and insufficient characteristic of the intended purpose of rubber paint, since its practical application is much wider.

Thus, any rubber paint with a warranty period of up to 10 years is designed to perform a whole range of works, including:

  • facade and basement, including brick, concrete , cement, plaster, plastered (without the use of slaked lime), putty surfaces;
  • painting roofs or other objects lined with the following materials: asbestos-cement slate, clay and metal tiles, corrugated board, ondulin, galvanized iron, tin;

  • interior painting of plastered (without slaked lime) and (or) plastered walls, drywall, pasted over vinyl, non-paper and other "non-paper" wallpaper, gypsum or foam-polymer decorative elements, fiberboard and chipboard;
  • to reduce slipping, rubber paint is used to cover ramps, pools, inclined surfaces;
    Important: for painting surfaces, hanging those who are eager to constant mechanical stress - treadmills, playgrounds, courts, pedestrian crossings, etc., it is better to use especially resistant paint with an extended warranty period - up to 20-25 years;

Our advice: prohibition of use emulsions for painting floors and furniture are the manufacturer's recommendation, but experience shows that after a certain preparation, the coating withstands well, for example, application to the floorboards of an outdoor gazebo. Based on this, the use of non-toxic and environmentally friendly paint for the purposes described above is a personal matter for the owner.

Warning:

  • paint is not recommended for use on "breathing" surfaces - indoor floors, walls, furniture, etc., as they are hydrophobic additives prevent air exchange and the release of condensate;
  • it is forbidden to use it on surfaces with an uncleaned layer of whitewash with slaked lime - the latex base simply rolls off the lime;
  • the paint has a reduced hiding power, therefore it is applied in 2-3 layers.

Step-by-step instructions for preparing surfaces for painting

This step is very important if you really want to test the full margin of safety of rubber paint.

You cannot ignore it.

Step one: cleaning

Goal: to achieve the most even, non-porous clean surface.

1. Use a metal brush, putty knife, trowel net or sandpaper to very thoroughly clean the surface of dirt, dust, mold, moss and traces of previous processing.

Particular attention should be paid to traces of whitewashing with hydrated lime and residues of oil or alkyd paint - they must be cleaned off before plaster or putty.

2. Rub oil and grease stains until they disappear completely. If the fat is too deep, soak it with dishwashing liquid for 2-3 hours, occasionally moistening it additionally - the stain should be washed off.

3. Glossy parts of wooden structures, MDF, fiberboard must be sanded to dullness.

6.After the completion of all work on cleaning, filling, sanding and grinding, the surface is freed from the remnants of construction dust, and then washed out with an alkaline solution (optimally: dilute sodium phosphate with water 1: 200). After 20-30 minutes, it is washed again with clean water and kept until completely dry.

Step two: priming

1. Metal elements are coated with an anti-corrosion compound before priming, and then with an insulating or inhibiting primer.

It is possible to use a special primer with anti-corrosion properties such as GF-021.

Important: if the surface after priming turns out to be glossy, then sand it a little to a matte shade ...

2.

Concrete, cement, asbestos-cement and other porous surfaces are coated at least twice with a facade or antiseptic deep penetration primer.

Our advice: if you apply the primer in two or more coats, first let the first coat dry completely and then apply the next one.

Step three: painting the surfaces with rubber paint

The following tools are used for painting: paint brush, foam rubber or artificial polyamide fur rollers, spray gun.

Optimum weather and temperature conditions for painting:

  • ambient temperature from + 5 ° to 25 ° С;
  • lack of precipitation and bright sun, relative humidity not more than 70%;
  • do not apply in case of strong dusty wind.

Important: paint dilution with water is allowed only when the first layer is applied and no more than 10% of the total volume.

Application of rubber paint with a spray gun

Features of coloring:

  • Apply multiple thin coats, not one thick one. The interval between the application of each subsequent coat is at least 2-4 hours (the previous one should stop sticking);
  • Stir the paint regularly to ensure an even coverage of the surfaces;
  • the paint should be distributed over the entire surface to be painted and get into any, even the smallest, potholes and cracks.

    This is difficult to achieve with a roller, especially in corners and other hard-to-reach places, so be sure to paint over imperfections with a brush (each layer must completely cover the surface);

  • Do not leave tools outdoors between coats - paint residues quickly harden and wash them later will be very difficult.

Very important! It is possible to wash and actively influence the painted surfaces no less than a week after the end of the painting - it is during this period that the emulsion completely hardens and acquires all wear-resistant qualities.
