Royal Indigo Cem is a premium quality waterproof cement paint. Its formulation is designed for ease of mixing, give excellent hiding, and excellent resistance to fungal & algal growth. Proper application of Royal Indigo cem results in extra durability and longer life.
Surface Preparation & Application:
Clean surface thoroughly with a stiff wire brush, to free it from dirt and algae. Previously painted surfaces should be washed or brushed down. If the surface is in flaky or powdery condition, it should be removed by scrapping or wire-brushing. Cement paints should not be applied on non-absorbent surfaces such as glazed bricks or previously painted enamel work. Saturate the surface with clean water several times, and allow excess water to disappear. Mix equal parts by volume of cement paint and water, and apply first coat with long hair brush. Do water-curing after 6-8 hours. Apply second coat 24 hours after application of first coat, and again cure with water after 6 hours. Two coats of Royal Indigocem are sufficient for most surfaces. Do not use saline water for mixing or for curing. No waterproofing compounds should be used either as a base coat, additive or top coat. Do not intermix different shades of Royal Indigocem. Restrict the use of blue, pink and green shades to interiors as they are liable to fleet on exterior applications. Avoid use of dark shades over large unrelieved areas.
