An Effective Solutions Package for Problems

Blistering and spalling on surfaces with crude plaster; color difference or wave of color on surfaces.
Reason: Application of primer and paint is carried out without performing grinding and scraping, cleaning the loose liquid particles on the surface.

Reason: Paint is applied directly without primer work.

Solution: Grinding should be made using grinding mosaic stones firstly on the surface with crude plaster. Weak liquid particles should be removed from the surface. Then, one coat primer should be applied using Alpina Primer or Alpina Paste Primer for interior surfaces and the primer of the exterior surface paint for exterior surfaces in order to obtain a homogenous surface with the purpose of enabling the paint to adhere to the surface better and preventing color differences and waives. Paint application should be carried out following this procedure.

Cracking and spalling of the paint due to the application of lime whitewash on a surface with crude plaster; color difference or waive of color on the surface.
Reason: Paint is applied on lime directly without primer work.

Reason: Since lime is an absorbent material with characteristics of dusting, primer work should be applied on the surface before applying paint on lime using transparent primers (Alpina Transparent Primer, Betek Satin Plaster Primer) without combing, then paint should be applied.

Peeling from the surface, cracking in paint, covering problem and formation of roller brush traces in the paint applied on surfaces with satin plaster.
Reason: Paint is applied directly on the surface with satin plaster.

Reason: Perform combing with transparent primer and form gloss film on the surface.

Solution: Since satin plaster is an absorbent material with characteristics of dusting, primer work should be applied on the surface before applying paint using transparent primers (Alpina Transparent Primer, Betek Satin Plaster Primer) without combing (so, formation of gloss film layer on the surface is avoided).

Peeling of synthetic paint applied on the old synthetic painted surfaces from the surface.
Reason: Paint is applied before sanding the old painted surface.

Solution: Any dirt, fume and glossiness are removed by sanding the old painted surface. Synthetic paint application should be carried out following this procedure.

Appearance of repair areas on synthetic painted surfaces, formation of color differences and peeling on these parts.
Reason:Repairs are carried out with satin plaster on old synthetic painted surfaces.

Solution: Synthetic based synthetic paste (Caparol Synthetic Paste) should be used as the repair material for synthetic systems. Then, Caparol Synthetic Primer and paint applications should be carried out.
Covering and adherence problems during the application of water based paint on old synthetic painted surfaces.
Reason: Transition primer (Alpina Primer or Alpina Paste Primer) is not used.

Solution: Old synthetic painted surface should be sanded firstly. After one of the transition primers is used, proceed to the application of water based paint.

Formation of cracking and shrinkage in paint when applying second coat of synthetic paint.
Reason: Second coat paint is applied without waiting the first coat for drying during the application of synthetic paint.

Reason: Low quality thinner is used.

Solution: It should be waited for at least 24 hours according to the weather conditions after the first coat of paint is applied. This waiting period should be 48 hours in the winter. Then, the application of paint may be carried out.

Cracking of paint, spalling of paint from surface as dust.
Reason: Paint application is carried out under +5°C and especially in frosty weather at night.

Reason: Paint application is carried out before the time period has elapsed for the plaster or concrete finish to dry.

Solution: You should ensure that the surface is dry before proceeding to the paint application. Additionally, surface and environment temperature should be definitely over +5°C. When these conditions are fulfilled, paint should be applied after an appropriate primer is used.

Problem of water inlet from exterior surface.
Reason: Paint is applied without repairing cracks sufficiently or without any repair; assuming that paint can hide the cracks on the exterior surface.

Solution: Cracks on the surface should be repaired using cement based repair pastes and Capatect Glass-Fiber Mash should be used as support when needed. Setting time of cement based materials should be obeyed. Then, primer of exterior surface paint and exterior surface paint itself should be applied. Exterior surface applications should be carried between +5°C and +30°C; surfaces should be protected against rain 12 hours before and after the paint application. Optimum solution for exterior surfaces is Capatect Dalmaçyalı Exterior Surface Thermal Insulation System which provides both water and heat insulation.

Blistering and spalling in exterior surface paint.
Reason: Paint is applied without primer

Reason: Water prevents paint from adhering on the surface since it seeps under the paint due to water inlet from cracks.

Solution: Appropriate surface preparation should be carried out; cracks should be repaired and primer and paint should be applied.

Texture mismatch in grained paint applications.
Reason: Roller brush is not suitable or application is carried out by different people.

Reason: Application is carried out under direct sunlight or in windy conditions

Reason: Product is thinned.

Solution: Our grained paints should be used without thinning. A homogeneous texture may be obtained if applications are carried out with a coral roller brush and by the same person. Additionally, weather conditions should be regarded. Application should not be carried out under direct sunlight, in very hot weather and under windy conditions.

Formation of dusting on exterior surfaces with exposed concrete or crude plaster.
Reason: Chemicals in concrete or plaster react with water and form dusting after the surface comes in contacts with the water.

Solution: Salts on the surface are removed. Our Disboxan 451 product is mixed with water at the rate of 1/1 and applied to the surface. Amphisilan Primer and Amphisilan Paint applications are carried out after 24 hours.

Inability of paint to adhere on exposed concrete surfaces.
Reason: There is molding oil on exposed concrete surface.

Solution: Firstly, molding oil on exposed concrete surface should be removed with warm soft soap. Primer and paint application should be started after the surface gets dry.

General problems such as adherence, hiding efficiency, roller brush traces, cracking, etc.
Reason: Wrong primer is used. Acrylic paste, transparent primer is used on surfaces with paste with glytolyn or old paint. Pigmented primers are used on surfaces with satin primer, lime, whitewash, etc.

Solution: Alpina Primer or Alpina Paste Primer should be used on surfaces with acrylic paste, old paint or paste with glytolyn; Alpina Transparent Primer or Betek Satin Plaster Primer should be used on surfaces with absorbent and dusting characteristics like satin plaster, lime, whitewash, etc.

Blistering and spalling in exterior surface paint of building footings.
Reason: Water insulation measurements are not taken sufficiently around the building during groundbreaking.

Solution: As a permanent solution, building surrounding should be opened till the footings, Capatect Bitumenflex should be applied as two coats beginning from the footings to a height of 30 cm above ground level and the top surface should be protected with 3-5 cm cheap styropor before the last coat dries; at the footing level, drainage pipes should be installed around the building and these pipes should be connected to the manholes. Water effects coming from the building surrounding will be protected with this method.

Problem of water inlet from roof and terrace.
Reason: Water insulation measurements are not taken sufficiently at roof and terrace.

Solution: Water insulation should be implemented by using our appropriate insulation products (Capatect Water Holder, Capatect Fibrated Water Holder, Capatect Bitumenflex, Capatect Polycrete, Capatect Membrane) according to the situation of roof and terrace.

Formation of whitening similar to dusting after paint on mineral based coatings
Reason: Sudden changes of weather conditions before setting time of mineral coating is up. Application of paint without primer.

Reason: Sudden changes of weather conditions before setting time of mineral coating is up. (Rapid decrease at temperature or rain etc.)

Solution: Surface should be cleaned with warm water and a tool like car washing brush. A mixture of 1 cup Capatect Disboxan 451 and 1 cup of water should be applied and one coat of top coat paint or one coat of paint (if silicone paint was used) should be applied on it.

On building exterior surfaces without gaps like window, door, etc. which are defined as blind wall.
