For painting all old and new surfaces and surfaces, including those which are already painted, where both an attractive, smooth finish and a long-lasting, protective coat against environmental aggression and sun light are required.
The special formulation of the product makes it particularly suitable for painting all cementitious and lime or gypsum-based surfaces which require longlasting, durable protection, good water repellence and permeability to vapour.
Colorite Performance is a paint for internal and external walls, made up of non-saponifiable, pure acrylic resin in water dispersion.
Colorite Performance is resistant to all climatic conditions and the aggressive attack of smog, salt and sunlight, and provides a long-lasting protective coat for the substrate.
Colorite Performance bonds perfectly to all types of renders and to old, wellbonded paintwork. Colorite Performance is also suitable for
internal use on brickwork or old painted surfaces if well-bonded and sound, after treatment with Malech.
Colorite Performance protects the substrate and gives it a uniform, attractive appearance with a silky finish. It is available in a wide range of colours which may be obtained with the ColorMap® automatic colouring system.
Preparation of the substrate
New surfaces or surfaces which have been patched-up with repair mortar must be well cured, perfectly clean, sound and dry. Remove all traces of oil and grease and parts which are not well-attached from the surface.
Seal any cracks which are present in the substrate and repair the parts which are in poor condition.Seal porosity and level uneven areas of
the substrate with mortar and smoothing compounds from the MAPEI building products line. Apply a coat of Malech (ready-to-use) and leave it to dry for 12-24 hours before applying Colorite Performance.
If a colour with poor covering characteristics is used, apply Quarzolite Base Coat or, in case of interior application, use colour-coordinated Dursilite Base Coat instead of Malech.
Preparation of the product
Dilute Colorite Performance with 10-15% water, making sure that it is well mixed together. If possible, use a low-speed drill to help with mixing.
If only a part of the product is to be prepared, mix Colorite Performance as is in its original container before pouring off the quantity required.
Application of the product
Colorite Performance is applied using traditional methods with a brush, a roller, by air-spraying or with an airless spray-gun system on top of a coat of dry Malech primer or Quarzolite Base Coat or Dursilite Base Coat.
The protection cycle comprises the application of at least two coats of Colorite Performance with a recoat time of 12-24 hours, according to humidity and temperature and, in any case, when the previous coat is completely dry. Examples of the final effect and finishes obtained using Colorite Performanceare illustrated in the “MAPEI Colours in Design” catalogue.
