Shelf life and Guarantee
12 months from production date if kept sealed in original container and stored in dry conditions. Manufacturer Civil Responsibility.

Working Temperature
Not below 8° C or above 30° C. Protect painted areas from direct sunlight, drying wind and rain for 3 to 4 days (longer in dam weather conditions). Do not use warm air dryers.

Suitable Background
Can be applied to gypsum plaster, cement and/or lime backgrounds, bricks, blocks and untreated timber. In order to avoid shadowing from differential background, support uniformization shall be done using TRADI HC™ PLASTER BASE (
Make a compatibility test in a small area before applying totally (specially for timber background).

The general ratio is 1 volume of powder to 2 volume of clean water. Further dilution might be necessary on porous backgrounds. Proper mixing is essential. When mixed it should be completely free of lumps or fine particles.

All new rendered or plastered surfaces should be properly dry before applying lime paints. Apply with a good quality long hairbrush in short strokes. Evenly and thinly spread the lime paint on the surface, work into any small hollows or cracks. Do not overload the brush, use only the bottom third of the bristles, do not apply unevenly. Stir regularly during application. Generally, 2 coats are sufficient. Wait 12/24 hours between coats. On large areas of work, always keep the working edge damp. Do not allow the lime paint to dry out and form a dry joint. Inadequate protection of the working area will affect drying. Maintain a dampened background in advance of application with a light mist spray if necessary. Sufficient personnel should be used to complete large areas without forming dry joints. Always finish whole walls or elevations into details, angles, corners, down pipes or the like in one operation to avoid colour banding. TRADI HC™ LIMEPAINT can be sprayed.

Remove any loose or flaking paints and repair defective plasters or renders. Test the background for suction by lightly flicking clean water from a brush on to the surface of the wall. Rapid suction into the background means that dampening with clean water will be required. In this case it may also be necessary to thin the first coat with 30% additional water. If thinning is required mix as normal then take out with a measured container the quantity you require to be thinned, place it in a separate container and add the extra water. A low suction background does not require pre wetting or additional thinning for the first coat. Very smooth or polished surfaces offering little or no suction might require sanding down with sandpaper to create the necessary suction. Ensure that background is dry, clean and sound. Do not use in areas subjected to abnormal condensation such as a kitchen or bathrooms, unless sufficient ventilation is available to prevent condensation. Lime paints are not film-forming materials that will hide the background condition therefore salts and dampness will show through. Some surfaces may have variations in background materials (i.e.: brick, stone, cement, etc) and therefore care is required in controlling differing suction levels. Extremely smooth gypsum plaster offering no suction need to be lightly sanded down to provide a suitable surface before applying TRADI HC™ LIMEPAINT.

Recommendation: Before starting, always try on a small test area.
Health and Safety: : Follow the instructions on the safety data sheet and wear appropriate equipment (gloves, mask, safety shoes…)
