JOTUN P.V.A.PRIMER WHITE – 18 L
Type : This is an emulsion primer, designed for interior purposes. Based on acrylic copolymer emulsion.
Features and benefits : Offers good flow, hiding power and incan anti bacterial. Has very low VOC which ensures good indoor air quality.
Recommended use : Ideal for priming interior surfaces.
Cement plaster, concrete, block work, gypsum board etc.
Substrate should have sufficient strength to receive the paint. Any defects in the substrate like surface
undulations, cracks, pin holes etc., should be rectified/filled before starting painting.
Packaging size : 18 L
Colours : White
Solids by volume 16 ± 2 volume% Theoretical
Specific gravity : 1.2 Theoretical
VOC : 0 g/l ISO 11890 EU
VOC comments : This is the theoretical value. Tested value will vary depending on test methodology,accuracy of equipment used for testing and test conditions.
The product can be applied by
Spray : Use airless spray or conventional spray.
Brush : Recommended to paint corners and edges.
Guiding data for airless spray
Nozzle tip 0.018–0.021″
Spray angle degrees 65–80°
Pressure at nozzle 140 – 190 kg/cm² (2100 psi)
Cleaning of painting tools : Water.
Film thickness per coat
Typical recommended range
Dry film thickness 15 – 25 μm
Wet film thickness 95 – 155 μm
Film thickness will vary and is calculated as average.
Theoretical spreading rate 10.7 – 6.4 m²/l
Spreading rate depends on film thickness applied, type of texture, surface porosity, imperfections, temperature, wastage during painting etc.
Maximum spread rate per coat is obtained at minimum dry film thickness and vice versa.
Thinner : Water
Dilution : Maximum 10 %
Conditions during application : The temperature of the substrate should be minimum 10 °C and at least 3 °C above the dew point of the air, measured in the vicinity of the substrate. Good ventilation is usually required in confined areas to ensure proper drying.
Drying times are generally related to air circulation, temperature, film thickness and number of coats, and will be affected correspondingly.
1.Recommended data given is, for recoating with the same generic type of paint.
2.In case of multi-coat application, drying times will be influenced by the number and sequence and by the total thickness of previous coats applied.
3.The surface should be dry and free from any contamination prior to application of the subsequent coat.
The drying time is measured by stated values:
Relative Humidity (RH) 50 %
Substrate temperature 10 °C 23 °C 40 °C
Surface (touch) dry 6 h 3 h 1 h
Hard dry 10 h 5 h 3 h
Dry to over coat, minimum 8 h 4 h 2 h
Directions for use
The substrate must be sound, clean, dry and free from dust, oil, grease, laitance etc. All traces of form release agents/curing agents must be removed. A light sanding with suitable abrasive material is recommended before application. Any resulting dust/loose particles must be removed.
Recommended paint system
Primer – PVA Primer : 1 Coat.
Filler – Stucco : 2 Coats
Topcoat – Fenomastic series : 2 Coats or Recommended paint system.
Other systems may be specified, depending on area of use.
