How to Apply

Application Guide Dulux AcraTex Tiltwash is applied using an airless spray unit (eg Graco 695 with a .0015 - .0019 tip at 1000 psi) or a low pressure knapsack spray unit. Large panels should be articulated into manageable work areas, always maintaining a wet edge ensuring rinsing of TiltWash is actioned prior to the area drying. If TiltWash dries, re-apply TiltWash to the affected area and rinse thoroughly. This will produce a foaming wave of excess material descending down the panel. As TiltWash is applied the panel should take on a darkened appearance. Should this not happen, apply a second coat of Dulux AcraTex Tiltwash and consult with Dulux AcraTex. Rinse panel with a flood of water (heavy spray not jet) deluging panel from top to bottom. Ensure extra care is taken whilst rinsing to ledges, sills and all fixtures on panels. A second rinse should be performed whilst panel is still wet from initial rinse. This is to make sure all remnants of bondbreaker and TiltWash are removed. This product should not be released into any watercourses, drains or gutters neat or diluted and should be contained and disposed of under local waste management procedures. For full details refer to individual Duspec Product and AcraTex Applicational Data Sheets.
