Surface preparation Clean the surface thoroughly. Make sure it is dry and free of all dust, contaminants and fungal growth. Remove laitance (accumulation of particles on fresh concrete) with a wire brush or sweep blast. Previous coatings must be removed completely. Treat fungal growth with Berger Fungicidal Solution.

Application procedure Mix the base and hardener of the two-pack Berger Epilux Concrete Primer in the ratio of 3:1 and allow it to mature for 15 minutes. Stir the contents thoroughly. Apply evenly avoiding runs and sags. Ensure that the outside temperature is 30oC and that relative humidity is not greater than 85%.

Solve Potential Paint Problems

1Reddish brown stains have appeared on the surface of my painted wall.

These reddish brown stains are caused by the rusting of nails on the painted surface.

What are the possible causes?

  • Bleeding of rust to the top coat from non galvanised iron nails
  • Rust from galvanised nail heads due to sanding and extreme weathering

How can I fix the problem?

  • Before painting on a new surface which uses non galvanised nails, countersink the nailheads, and caulk with a high quality water based acrylic caulk.
  • Spot prime each nailhead and paint with a quality latex coating.
  • If you’re trying to fix existing nailhead rusting, wash off rust stains and sand the nailheads. Then, countersink, caulk and spot prime as above. Paint with a high quality latex coating.

We recommend you use this painting system to avoid this problem the next time around:
