- Manufactured in more than two hundred colours
- Resistant to weather conditions
- Amount required: depending on the smoothness and absorption of the substrate, on average approx. 0.3 l/m2 with two coatings
CT 54 is used for painting facades and interiors (walls and ceilings). It can be applied on mineral substrates. It is used on traditional plasters, brick walls, Ceresit CT 35, CT 36 and CT 137 mineral plasters, Ceresit CT 72, CT 73 silicate plasters and Ceresit CT 174, CT 175 silicate-silicone plasters applied on traditional substrates and included in the Ceresit Ceretherm thermal insulation systems. Due to its alkaline reaction, mineral nature, bactericidal properties and matt appearance, CT 54 is highly recommended for use on new plasters, on historical monuments as well as on traditional, renovation and aerated plasters.
The paint CT 54 may be applied on carrying, smooth, dry and clean substrates (free from any substances that decrease adhesion such as grease, bitumen, dust):
– thin-layer mineral, silicate and silicate-silicone plasters (age over 3 days),
– traditional cement plasters, lime-cement plasters and lime plasters (age over 14 days),
– strong mineral paint coatings (silicate, cement ones) with good adhesion to the substrate, concrete (age over 28 days) brick walls,
– gypsum substrates (only inside the buildings) with the humidity below 1%, firstly primed with Ceresit CT 17,
– gypsum cardboards, gypsum-fibre boards (only inside the buildings), fixed according to the recommendations of the board manufactures, firstly primed with CT 17,
– strong paint coats with good adhesion to the substrate.
Firstly uneven and damaged substrates should be repaired. Ceresit CT 29 plaster filler can be used for repairs. It is recommended to check the strength of the existing mineral layers. The existing dirt, layers of low strength, lime and adhesive paint coatings as well as the remainders of wall paper or glues should be completely removed. It is recommended to use washing devices. After being washed with water, the substrate should dry.
Before the paint application, the content of the container should be carefully stirred by means of the drill with a mixer for about 2 minutes. Usually it is sufficient to paint twice. In case of absorptive substrates the paint can be mixed with added 10–15% of clean water to apply the first layer. The second or potentially third layer should be applied without any dilution. Between the application of the subsequent layers at least 12-hour technological breaks should be maintained. The first layer should be applied with a brush. The subsequent layers should be applied with a roller on smooth substrates. It is important to apply the paint evenly. Use only stainless containers and tools. Work on one surface should be carried on without any breaks using the paint of the same badge number printed on each packaging or the content of containers with different badge numbers should be mixed together. The area not to be painted, e.g. windows, doors should be protected (e.g. with foil). Bushes, other plants, etc. should be protected as well. Any stains should be immediately rinsed with water. Tools should be washed carefully with water directly after being used.
