Problem
cons-intonaci1Mineral surfaces, plasters or finishing, can be powdering and in some cases poor in binder and, therefore, with insufficient mechanical resistance.

These conditions do not allow the subsequent finishing operations to be carried out in a suitable manner as the latter may find a defective adhesion to the underlying support.

The realization of finishes above unsuitable surfaces can lead over time, due to the tensions that are formed between the various layers, to micro-cracks from which the water will trigger its degrading action.

The problem described above also occurs on old paint, aesthetically degraded but still load-bearing, for which it is
intended to perform an overlying finishing intervention.

Solution
Through the use of specific consolidants, designed for interventions on mineral substrates such as plaster – plasterboard and gypsum-based surfaces – old paints, the dusting of the surfaces is blocked, restoring compactness and strength to the materials. Furthermore, the consolidants uniform the absorption of the surfaces in order to facilitate the application of subsequent finishing products.

CIR for this problem proposes two products that guarantee high penetration inside the support, thanks to the very small molecular dimensions and the low viscosity, CONSACRILICand ACQUACONS, able to consolidate the supports without creating any superficial film. And also a product, PRIMER FIX, able to standardize the absorption of the plasters for the subsequent finishes and block the superficial dusting.

INTERVENTION CYCLE

  • Removal of pollutants present on surfaces with a specific CIR cleaner
  • On a clean and dry surface, perform the consolidation intervention with the application of: CONSACRILIC – ACQUACONS – PRIMER FIX
  • Evaluate the consolidating effect (after 24 hours for CONSACRILIC – about 4 days for ACQUACONS – 6 hours for PRIMER FIX)
  • Subsequently proceed with finishing operations
ADVANTAGES OF CIR SOLUTION
The solutions proposed by CIR guarantee a high consolidating power in the mineral substrates and the total absence of by-products which would damage the finishing after consolidation.

Moreover CONSACRILICand ACQUACONSare formulated with the use of active ingredients with very small molecular dimensions, which allow a high penetration and the absence of superficial films on the supports.

The SOLUTION proposed by CIR have the following advantages:

  • IT IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS
  • IT GUARANTEES VAPOR PERMEABILITY
  • IT DOES NOT CAUSE DAMAGING BY-PRODUCTS
  • IT IS NON TOXIC AND ECO-COMPATIBLE
THE TECHNICIAN RECOMMENDS
To obtain a good result of consolidation, it is necessary to evaluate the absorption of the material, in order to choose the right dilution of the consolidant and to intervene in depth.
