CLASSICO

with natural pigments

Introduction Classico is a water-dilutable chalk paint for interior and exterior use, developed according to the most sustainable and environmentally friendly techniques nowadays, with a more than excellent adherence and coverage. This chalk-based paint is made with natural pigments. The chalk in the paint provides the matte, powdery, velvetlike appearance. The combination of chalk with natural pigments gives the paint it’s deep, intense colour. On surfaces already painted with wall paint, directly applying of the Classico chalk-based paint is possible. On bare surfaces (especially porous or powdery) it is recommended first to apply one layer Pure & Original WallFix, then apply 2 coats of Classico. Most important characteristics • Practically odourless • Water resistant • Breathing • No yellowing • Easy to clean • Very easy to process • Very matte and velvet powdery Application •

Preparation Most painting problems derive from bad preparation or application. The surface that you are going to paint should be clean, dry, free of dust and fat. Remove all loose paint layers. Already painted foundations can be cleaned with Pure & Original Super Cleaner. On new powdery/sandy foundations, first use Pure & Original WallFix. 1. Remove all loose old paint layers. 2. Already painted surfaces need to be cleaned with Pure & Original Super Cleaner. New powdery/sandy surfaces or walls with suction differences need preparation with one layer Pure & Original WallFix, walls with suction differences need to prep with one layer Pure & Original WallPrim. Surface wood: roughen and first apply a layer of Pure & Original Omniprim to avoid bleeding from the wood. Surface vinyl: clean with Pure & Original Super Cleaner. Then apply 2 layers of Pure & Original WallPrim. Let dry thoroughly in between the layers and apply 2 layers of Pure & Original Classico. Protection Although chalk-based paint is lightly washable, it is very porous, so it will adopt water and fat very quickly. Direct water and large amounts of condensation can leave traces of water. To avoid this, it is possible to seal the paint with Pure & Original Dead Flat Eco Sealer. After fully saturating the paint, the paint will be easily washable. Be aware: Applying in thick layers, or uneven application, can (especially on dark colours) lead to a white haze. Respect the drying time of 2 - 3 days of the chalk-based paint, before applying the Dead Flat Eco Sealer. Cleaning Clean hands and tools immediately after use with soap and water. Clean with soft detergent, avoid aggressive bleaching methods. The paint is, under normal circumstances, without sealer, lightly washable after 2 weeks. Dark colours can leave light traces after cleansing.
