PRIMIS® SAF 9000

Innovative Oil-Resistant and Hydrophobic Dispersions for Wall and Flooring Applications

PRIMIS® SAF 9000 series stands for a range of innovative, highly resistant, waterborne dispersions which exhibit a high molecular weight, ultra-fine particle size, and are oleophobic as well as hydrophobic. Among other things, this enables the formulation of a new generation of stain-resistant surface treatments, easy-to-clean interior wall paints and dirt-repellent exterior wall paints.


Long-Term Protection for Mineral Floors

Mineral floors, such as self-leveling compounds or concrete for example, are very prone to dirt pick-up due to their open-pored structure. PRIMIS® SAF 9000 contains particles with diameters of less than 0.1 micrometer in size, which can easily penetrate into the microporous surface and protect against staining. This both reinforces the surface and improves the abrasion resistance. For this, PRIMIS® SAF 9000 is applied in a diluted form with a mop or similar implement. The diluted dispersion is quickly absorbed until almost invisible. Even after just a few hours, the flooring can be stepped on again and red wine, ketchup, coffee, tea, or olive oil stains can be simply wiped away.

Benefits:

  • Easy application
  • Short drying time
  • UV resistance
  • Alkaline resistance
  • Abrasion resistance
  • High stain resistance
  • For both indoors and outdoors
  • Natural look
  • BfR XIV and FDA compliant

If stain protection and abrasion resistance should be improved further, then using PRIMIS® SAF 9001 is recommended.

Formulate Easy-To-Clean Interior Paints – Easily

Convenience is one of the mega trends of our time. PRIMIS® SAF 9000 enables the formulation of so-called “easy-to-clean” interior wall paints, which satisfy this trend completely. Marks from pencils, colored pencils and text markers can then be just as easily removed as coffee, tea, lipstick or olive oil stains. For this, PRIMIS® SAF 9000 is used as a co-binder with 10-20% volume share of the main binder. PRIMIS® SAF 9000 is very compatible with VINNAPAS® VAE dispersions as well as acrylic-based binders.

Benefits:

  • Improved stain resistance
  • Improved blocking resistance
  • Suitable for existing formulations
  • Compatible with VINNAPAS® VAE dispersions
  • Compatible with acrylic-based binders

Exterior Wall Paints for Facades without a Blemish

As a co-binder in exterior wall paints, PRIMIS® SAF 9000 prevents rain leaching out soluble additives, such as emulsifiers, from newly painted facades and so-called “snail trails” appearing.

Benefits:

  • Prevents “snail trails”
  • Suitable for existing formulations
  • Compatible with VINNAPAS® VAE dispersions
  • Compatible with acrylic-based binders

Decorative Plasters with No Stains

Decorative plasters, such as venetian plaster, can be reinforced and made stain-resistant with PRIMIS® SAF 9000. The dispersion is applied directly onto the plaster as a surface treatment.

Benefits:

  • Weather resistance
  • Protection against rain, cold, heat and frost/thaw conditions
  • Protection against hydrophilic and organic stains
  • Easy to apply (even for laypeople)
  • Short drying time

Marble Chip Plaster Without Discoloration

In marble chip plasters, PRIMIS® SAF 9000 is used as the sole binder, replacing pure acrylics, while achieving greater scratch resistance. But above all, PRIMIS® reduces the whitening effect on the plaster that comes from prolonged contact with water.

Benefits:

  • Increased scratch resistance
  • Reduced whitening in humid conditions
