Application Advice/Typical Applications

The product is preserved against bacterial and fungal attack. In the manufacture of finished products, the material has to be retreated, as usual, with suitable biocides to give enhanced preservation.

Above minimum film forming temperature PLEXTOL D 561 forms a clear, tack-free film. PLEXTOL D 561 is a non-yellowing, light- resistant pure acrylic dispersion, which is characterized by excellent weatherability. Masonry paints based on this binder exhibits a reduced dirt pick-up. PLEXTOL D 561 can be used as an allround binder. Primary applications are: high-grade, non-yellowing facade paints, synthetic resin plasters, coatings for concrete roof tiles, tinting paints, coatings for concrete, and primers for mineral substrates.

Shipping and Storage

This product is supplied in road tankers or in non-returnable plastics drums secured by a lid with clamping ring or in non-returnable palletized bulk containers (net weight 1,000 kg). PLEXTOL D 561 has to be stored protected from frost and, as far as possible, below 40 °C. Storage at temperatures between + 5 and + 30 °C is recommendable. It contains a preservative to counter microbial attack during transportation. To protect it against germination during subsequent storage, absolutely stringent plant hygiene and, under certain circumstances, the addition of suitable preservatives will be necessary. Care must be taken to ensure that drums and storage containers are tightly closed. During processing, storage and transport of the product contact with metals unprotected against corrosion (likewise non-ferrous metals) has to be avoided. When stored correctly PLEXTOL D 561 has a storage life of 12 months from date of delivery. - This product is only sold in MEA.
