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. Best suitable also for firmly ingrained, matt and absorbent emulsion paints (please always test on a small sample area first).
Soda turns vegetable casein into a protein glue, which is the binder of the paint. The production as a powder paint reduces transport costs and packaging waste, prolongs shelf life, chemical preservation is unnecessary.
For wet rooms, we recommend KREIDEZEIT Lime Paint.

When using the product, the complete Product information Vega Wallpaint 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 550 ml of water. Dilute with up to 150 ml of water if necessary.
Application with paint brush Mix 1 kg of paint powder with 650 ml of water. Dilute with up to 150 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!
Drying Times at normal Climate
Safe to coat after approx. 8 hrs. Thoroughly 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: Facade brush, Lime brush, Professional roller
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) for 1 kg of paint powder used.
The oil is added to the Vega Wallpaint 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 Vega Wallpaint can be tinted with up to 10% Kreidezeit earth and mineral pigments (max. 100 g pigment per 1 kg paint powder).
