About Teknos Timantti Clean Extra-Durable Antimicrobial Interior Paint
Timantti Clean Antimicrobial Interior Paint is suitable for use on wall and ceiling surfaces requiring high hygiene levels and wear resistance.
The antimicrobial effect remains throughout the life of the paint film.
This paint is for indoor use in spaces where wall and ceiling surfaces must be easy to clean and resistant to abrasion.
Recommended for use in facilities where the antimicrobial properties of the paint film improve the functionality of spaces, such as hospitals, health centres and other public health premises, nursing homes, kindergartens, schools and other public spaces, as well as e.g. food industry premises.
This semi-matt waterborne acrylate paint improves the hygiene level in rooms. The antimicrobial active ingredient, silver, prevents harmful bacteria cells from dividing and interferes with their metabolism, which stops microbes from multiplying.
Mechanical abrasion of the surface maintains Antimicrobial efficiency, because the entire paint film, not just the surface, is active. The product’s antimicrobial efficiency has been tested according to standard ISO 22196. In test conditions, the numbers of MRSA bacteria decreased by more than 99.9% in 24h (University of Helsinki, Department of Public Health, Faculty of Medicine 2012).
Timantti Clean can be applied to primed concrete, plaster, stopper, brick and building board surfaces according to the instructions. Timantti Clean is also suitable for repainting old alkyd and dispersion paint coats.
Clean new surfaces from dust and dirt. Wash previously painted surfaces with RENSA SUPER paint cleaner. Matt down hard or gloss surfaces by sanding and thereafter remove the dust. For smoothing of irregularities in the surface choose a suitable stopper. The dried stopper is sanded down and the dust removed.
Humid Areas and Wet Rooms - Prime concrete, plaster, stopper, brick, and building board surfaces with Timantti W moisture sealer.
In Dry Areas - prime the surfaces with TIMANTTI 3 Primer.
Steel surfaces are primed with an Anti-corrosive paint. Prime galvanized surfaces with TIMANTTI 3 Primer.
Before use stir the paint thoroughly. Apply Timantti Clean once or twice by roller, spray or brush. Recommended nozzle size for airless spray is 0.017 - 0.021''.
The surface to be painted has to be dry. During the application and drying period the temperature of the ambient air, the surface and the paint should be above +5°C and the relative air humidity below 80%. Good ventilation during the application and drying period quickens the drying process.
The painted surface can be cleaned by wiping with a neutral (pH 6 - 8) detergent. For very dirty surfaces alkalescent (pH 8 - 10) detergents can be used. Detergent and dirt are removed by wiping and/or rinsing the surface with clean water. Use a cleaning cloth, soft sponge or similar for cleaning. Avoid coarse brushing or heavy abrasion. Follow the dilution and other instructions of the detergent producer when using detergents.
