Application methods

Home/Application/Application methods

Once thoroughly mixed, ZINGA can be applied by using a normal paintbrush, a short-fibre roller (not for the first coat) or a conventional or airless spray gun.

ZINGA must be thoroughly mechanically stirred to achieve a homo­geneous liquid before application. After a maximum of 20 minutes, re-mixing is necessary.

ZINGA application by brush or roller

ZINGA can be applied using a normal paintbrush (natural hairs) or a short-fibre roller for smaller applications or to perform a stripe-coat.

In order to fill the profile of the substrate better, it is advised to dilute ZINGA 3-5% (mass on mass – see below dilution table). This will give a smoother finish.

It is always recommended to treat corners, sharp edges, bolts and nuts with a stripe coat (by brush) before applying a uniform coat by spray.

For more technical data, see ZINGA Technical Data Sheet.

ZINGA application by conventional spray

ZINGA can be applied using a conventional spray gun. In order to ensure good circulation of the ZINGA, it should be diluted 10 to 20% (mass on mass – see below dilution table) depending on pressure at the nozzle and nozzle opening. More dilution for the same nozzle will give a smoother surface finish (less porous).

For more technical data, see ZINGA Technical Data Sheet.

ZINGA application by airless spray

ZINGA can be applied using an airless spray gun. In order to ensure good circulation of the ZINGA, it should be diluted 5 to 7% (mass on mass – see below dilution table) depending on pressure at the nozzle and nozzle opening. More dilution for the same nozzle will give a smoother surface finish (less porous).
