Starry night effect paint is a modern, decorative latex paint that creates a unique glistening effect under the influence of both natural and artificial light. The paint offers very good coverage properties and matt coat finish with thousands of shiny microparticles of special golden fillers. Its microporous structure allows the walls to breathe and the properly developed texture of the paint offers ease of spreading and non-splashing painting experience. The paint fills interiors with a touch of subtle elegance.
- very good coverage rate
- easy to apply
- non-splashing during paintwork
- high decorative values
The paint is designed for decorative and protective painting of walls and ceilings inside rooms made of cement plaster, cement/lime render, drywall, wallpaper, etc. It is a perfect solution for painting whole or selected sections of walls in single- and multi-family buildings, adding subtle brightness to such interiors as living rooms, bedrooms, and baby rooms. It also works ideally for public access areas, such as restaurants, hotels, and discos, etc.

- SURFACE PREPARATION
The paint should be applied on seasoned, robust and durable surfaces, which are clean, dry and free from dust, grease and other substances reducing adhesion. Before applying the paint, it is recommended to prime the substrate with the latex primer. Fresh cement and cement/lime renders should be primed after approx. 4 weeks, while gypsum renders – approx. 2 weeks after application. Gypsum finishing coats and surfaces made of drywall must be dedusted and then primed, e.g. using the Fixgrunt U. It is important to make sure that the surface does not leave any white dust when rubbed by hand. While painting walls previously covered with wallpaper, it is important to thoroughly remove the residues of glue, e.g. using water and painter’s soap, and allow to dry completely. Substrates coated with emulsion paints that offer good adhesion may simply be washed with water with a dab of painter's soap, rinsed with clean water and dried. Areas contaminated with mould or fungi should be cleaned mechanically and disinfected using the Biotox Total algicide and fungicide.
- PRODUCT PREPARATION
After opening the container, the paint should be thoroughly mixed and, depending on the painting technique applied, diluted with water in the amount of 2 – 5 %. Next, add the whole content of the sachet found under the lid of the container to the container with the paint and thoroughly mix again using the attached manual stirrer, spreading the golden filler evenly throughout the paint. The paint should not be mixed using high-speed stirrers.
The paint may be applied with a brush, roller or hydrodynamic spraying device. The substrate and ambient temperature during application should range between +10°C to +25°C. Application of the paint is possible after at least two hours from priming the substrate (for the air and substrate temperature of approx. 20°C and relative air humidity of 55±5%). The second coat should be applied after the first layer has dried, i.e. after at least two hours. Immediately after painting, the tools should be washed with water. The paint acquires its full resistance properties (to washing/abrasion) after at least 28 days from the completion of the paintwork.
- ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
