The correct use: swimming pool paint for mineral substrates

You can find out here how to process the swimming pool paint correctly, what to look out for and what you need:

You need:

- Swimming pool paint
- Possibly masking tape to mask off the area not to be coated
- Paint roller, brush or airless spray gun
- Thinner if necessary (this can also be used to clean the equipment afterwards)

Preparations and processing:

  1. The processing and especially the drying should not take place below 10°C. This information relates to the paint material, substrate and room temperature during processing and the subsequent drying and curing time.
  2. The substrate must be dry and free of dust and grease. Important: Do not use soapy cleaners or scouring milk. (These are made from fatty acids and are therefore not suitable for dissolving grease.) You must remove old paintwork to ensure resistance to aggressive media. Mineral substrates must be dry, set and clean. For repeat coats, thoroughly clean the old coating of algae, dirt and deposits. Remove unstable subsoil.
  3. Use painter's tape to mask off the areas that are not to be coated. Stir the paint well before use.
  4. A primer is not necessary. You can also use the pool color as a primer.
  5. If desired, thin the pool paint with approximately 5-10% thinner.
  6. Spray, roll or brush paint. 1-2 coats are recommended. Coating must take place in dry weather, direct sunlight and too cold a substrate are to be avoided. Color
  7. The drying takes place after 3-8 hours. The product can then also be painted over.
  8. The final hardness is reached after 10-12 days, after which the basin can be filled with water without any worries.
