Bio Wall Paint And BIO PIGMENTS
DESCRIPTION : A matt interior paint based on natural and non toxic ingredients. Gentle
on the environment and designed for efficient use of resources. Low odour and low
allergenic. The paint has a pleasant smell and is available in a range of colours.
For use on interior surfaces such as plasterboard, solid plaster, concrete and mud brick.
It is not recommended for use on timber or on timber products such as medium density
fibre board, masonite or particleboard. Bio Wall Paint breathes, while conventional wall
paints seal off the walls, which can promote mould growth.
Bio Wall Paint HD (Heavy Duty) has been tested by the Department of Defence according to
the Australian Standard AS 1580 for scrub- resistant and dry hiding power. It is
therefore well suited for schools, restaurants, offices and public buildings with heavy
traffic areas. Suitable for use in wet areas. Extreme low Volatile Organic Compounds
(VOC) less than 1 g per litre and does not contribute to smog and pollution. It contains
no lead, glycol derivates, aromatic hydrocarbons or styrene compounds.
PREPARATION : Prepare the surface in accordance with AS 2311 - Painting of Buildings. The
surface to be painted should be smooth, dry and cleaned of greasy and dirty contaminants.
New plaster and concrete can be painted after 6 weeks. Remove stains, watermarks, soot
etc. seal off with a solution of shellac: 250 g Shellac per 1 litre metholated spirits.
Old lime and kalsomine paint must be removed. Oil based and acrylic paint surfaces – semi
gloss or gloss - should be sanded with sandpaper. A test strip is recommended on already
painted surfaces if compatibility is in doubt.
PRIMING : New, highly absorbent and crumbly surfaces must be primed with BIO Wall Primer.
Alkaline surfaces must be primed first with a special conventional sealer to prevent
saponification of the paint. Plasterboard jointing cement should be left for 48 hours
APPLICATION : Stir thoroughly before use with a broad flat stirrer. May be brushed,
rolled or sprayed. Apply one thick coat or two thin coats (may be thinned with water 5%-
10% to obtain a smooth flowing consistency). New Gyprock surfaces need two or three coats
initially. Airless spraying requires 200 bar/pressure with a nozzle of 0.28 mm Titan -
adjustable- or 0.53 mm with a fan angle of 50 degrees.
If using deep base, for better hiding power use BIO Wall Paint White for the first coat .
Followed by 1 to 2 coats of BIO Wall Paint Deep Base. We recommend to use at least 10%
pigments in a Deep Base system for better hiding power.
