Casein is a complex mixture of proteins obtained from milk. In powder form, it is added to the Marble Paint and dissolved with soda to form a binder. Even thousands of years ago, people knew that lime mixed with curd cheese was an excellent binder for paints and glues. Some of these works are still preserved in churches and museums. Proof enough for the excellent quality of casein colors. Not only the quality, but also the environmentally friendly production and processing of casein paints are reasons to rediscover and further develop old recipes.
Wall and ceiling paint for interior use. Suitable for all structurally-sound, absorbent indoor renders (clay, lime, gypsum and cement), fillers, ingrain wallpaper, pure wallpaper, paper fleece, plaster-board, gypsum fibreboards and concrete.
Also suitable for firmly ingrained, matt and absorbent emulsion paints (please always test on a small sample area first.)
For wet rooms, we recommend KREIDEZEIT Lime Paint.

When using the product, the complete Product information must be observed.
Apply a base coat to all renders, fillers, levelled drywall, concrete and old emulsion paints with Vega Primer or Casein Primer and leave to dry completely. Do not apply to paper fleece/wallpaper.
Mixing the Paint
Stir in the specified amount of powder into clean, cold water, until the mixture is smooth. Use a powerful drill with agitator. Leave to expand for at least 30 minutes and stir well again before processing.
Adjust paint/water mixture to suit the surface; i.e. a little more water may be required for a particular application.
Application with paint roller: Mix 1 kg of paint powder with 650 ml of water. Dilute with up to 100 ml of water if necessary.
Application with paint brush: Mix 1 kg of paint powder with 750 ml of water. Dilute with up to 100 ml of water if necessary.
Application temperature at least 8°C.
Stir occasionally during application.
Two coats are typically required for full opacity. Do not attempt to cover dark and high-contrast substrates with only one coat of paint; excessive application thicknesses can lead to damage to the coating! Allow previous coats to dry completely before applying another coat. During the application, the wet paint is translucent; it only becomes fully opaque once drying is complete.
Using a paint brush Apply evenly with a facade brush in a criss-cross pattern.
Using a roller Apply the paint liberally and evenly in a criss-cross pattern. Then immediately use a roller in a single direction, without applying any further paint.
The Paint must be applied on the same day as mixing.
Do not use paint that smells bad or rotten under any circumstances: Danger of prolonged odour problems even after drying!
Safe to coat after approx. 8 hrs.mThoroughly dried after approx. 24 hrs.
Good quality, medium-pile paint roller (polyamide) and paint brush. Airless sprayers (min. air pressure 200 bar). Recommended from the KREIDEZEIT range: Paint roller and brushes
Cleaning the Tools
Immediately after use with water.
– Small quantities of mixed paint can be frozen for repair purposes.
– Overcoating of old dispersion paints
The old paint must be stable, matt and slightly absorbent. For better adhesion to the substrate we recommend an addition of 30 ml Safflower oil (low-yellowing, Art. 370) for 1 kg of paint powder used.
The oil is added to the casein paint after its expanding time, stirring vigorously.
Dirty dispersion paints must be cleaned before applying the casein paint, e. g. with soda. In these cases, the suitability of the paint should generally be tested on site by setting up a trial area.
The Marble Paint can be tinted with up to 10% KREIDEZEIT earth and mineral pigments (max. 100 g pigment per 1 kg paint powder).

Either stir the pigment directly into the preparation water until smooth before mixing in the white Marble Paint powder, or create a paste with a little water and then mix in with the finished Marble Paint. Instruction
