Step 1: Prepare your exterior wall for painting

Before you start painting your exterior wall or facade, it is important that the surface is clean, dry, free of dust and grease. This will keep your exterior wall beautiful and protected for longer.

To remove all contamination, dust, oil, grease, cracked paint or other foreign materials, it is recommended to first thoroughly spray the wall with a high-pressure cleaner. Let the outside wall dry for 30 days (rain is no problem) and then treat it with the Pure & Original WallFix. This serves as an insulation and fixation layer for painting. The above applies to a surface of concrete, cement and brick, do you want to paint another surface? View the technical information of the Kalei facade paint here.

Have you finished cleaning the surface? Then it is time to apply the Kalei facade paint. This comes in different types.

Apply 1 to 2 layers of the Kalei, depending on the desired appearance, with a Kalei block brush for a natural look. Do not paint in direct sunlight. The paint is dust-free after 30 to 60 minutes.
