Quarzolite Tonachino Plus is particularly resistant to the growth of algae, mould and fungi. It may be used for decorating buildings located in areas where the particularly damp climate favours the growth of such microorganisms. A typical example is the painting of north-facing façades which are particularly sensitive to the growth of due mould or algae to the walls of the building being colder and damper.
Apart from the actions described above, Quarzolite Tonachino Plus is a coating material available in various grain sizes which is resistant in all climates and to the aggressive action of smog, salt-water and direct sunlight. Quarzolite Tonachino Plus contains a specific additive for the control of mould and algae growth.
When Quarzolite Tonachino Plus is used in combination with Silancolor Primer Plus or Silancolor Base Coat Plus and, where necessary, with Silancolor Cleaner Plus, it forms a complete, efficient, decorative protective system and forms a long-lasting means of defence for the façade. Quarzolite Tonachino Plus contains synthetic fibres for good crack resistance.
Quarzolite Tonachino Plus bonds perfectly to all types of conventional renders and to old, well-bonded paintwork. Quarzolite Tonachino Plus also gives the substrate an attractive rustic finish. It is available in a wide range of colours obtained using the ColorMap® automatic tinting system. Quarzolite Tonachino Plus complies with the requirements of EN 15824 (“Specifications for external renders and internal plasters based on organic binders”) for internal and external use.
Preparation of the substrate
New surfaces requiring treatment or areas patched up with repair mortar must be wellcured, perfectly clean, cohesive and dry. Remove all traces of oil and grease from the surface and any parts which are not well attached. Remove all traces of mildew, mould and fungi, if present. They must be removed while the surface is still damp after a thorough cleaning with Silancolor Cleaner Plus.
Apply Silancolor Cleaner Plus over the entire surface of the substrate with a low-pressure manual sprayer or by brush, making sure it penetrates deep down into the substrate. After applying the product, leave it to react for a few minutes and then remove the mildew, mould and fungi with a brush. Apply Silancolor Cleaner Plus several times to help it penetrate into the substrate. Seal all cracks and repair areas which are deteriorated.
Seal porosity and even out the surface of the substrate with a mortar and skimming compound from the MAPEI Building Products range. Apply Silancolor Primer Plus or Silancolor Base Coat Plus and leave it to dry for approximately 12-24 hours, or until the wall is completely dry, before applying Quarzolite Tonachino Plus.
Preparation of the product
Quarzolite Tonachino Plus is supplied ready to use and just needs to be well mixed with a low-speed drill. If the product is too viscous, add 1-2% of water. Application of the product Apply Quarzolite Tonachino with a stainless steel or plastic trowel on the dry layer of Silancolor Primer Plus or Silancolor Base Coat Plus. The product can also be applied by spray with suitable equipment. The protection cycle requires the application of one coat of Quarzolite Tonachino Plus. Spread the product in a uniform layer and level with a plastic trowel to create an even finish or use a damp sponge float to obtain the desired final effect. According to the Tonachino grain size and the roughness of the substrate, the application can be carried out in two layers, to reach a perfectly homogeneous finish.
