How do I know if RAW Paints' products remain on my wall?

It is important to know how humid the walls are. To be able to figure that out, you will be able to measure the walls with a moisture meter. Depending on the result, you can take the following steps:

  1. In the humidity level above 15%, you need to enable professional help to solve the moisture problem
  2. In the humidity level between 6% and 15%, consider enabling professional help to solve the moisture problem
  3. At a humidity level below 6%, it is not a problem to apply BASEPAINT

Points 2 and 3 are circumstances in which BASEPAINT could be applied.

Can I paint my walls if they are still damp?
By measuring the walls on humidity you can determine if you can or cannot paint. Ask for advice.
Do I need to ventilate the room during painting?
Since RAW Paints’ minerals and water-based products have been developed without the addition of (chemical) preservatives/stabilizers, the room during painting is simply accessible. But fresh air during painting work is always delicious!
How many layers should I apply?
With one layer of RAW Paints, the wall is often covered at once. We recommend that you apply two layers of RAW Paints’ products for the best results. Depending on the suction power of the wall and thus the prefering with the substrate, it may be that a third layer is necessary.
When can I apply the second layer?
A second layer can be applied after 12 hours.

Can I paint over existing paint?
RAW Paints’ products have been developed to paint on an untreated surface. If the underlay was previously painted with a breathable mineral paint it should not pose a problem to paint over it. If the underlay is a non-breathable (latex) coat of paint, RAW Paints’ products can be used but entirely for their own responsibility. The paint layer with RAW Paints’ products will remain on this layer; However, because the first layer did not have the ability to adhese and a filter has been created, the first coat of paint and thus the next will fall off in high humidity circumstances.
How many m2 do I paint with RAW Paints' products?
Use the following ratio for creating RAW Paints ‘ products *: BASEPAINT up to 2 m2:0.5 KG BASEPAINT up to 4 m2:1 KG BASEPAINT up to 8 m2:2 KG BASEPAINT* ratio depend on the suction effect of the substrate; an open structure will consume more paint per m2.

What is adhesion?

The natural raw materials incorporated into the RAW Paints’ products form the basis for the unique paint powder formula.

The principle of this formula is based on a carbonation of the mineral paint with the substrate. A solid, mineral and insoluble connection of the paint with the paint carrier (plaster, concrete, brick, natural stone) arises. The cross-section of a plaster layer shows this process, also known as “election”. Save and exit

I've added too much water, now what?

Can I paint about RAW Paints' products with another product?
