Frequently asked questions Smartcover tile paint

Frequently asked questions Smartcover tile paint

Before painting the tiles it is essential to leave the surface clean and free of grease (especially in the kitchen). Otherwise, the paint will not adhere well to the surface. To clean it, it is simply necessary to use water and neutral soap and to clean it with a scouring pad. For a more thorough cleaning, we recommend our exclusive Smart Cleaner.

If there is any silicone residue, it must be removed. Special attention should be paid to the seals, which should also be kept very clean. If the surface has open joints, it is advisable to go over them with our Smart Jointer 0-2 mm flashing to ensure that there are no imperfections.

But keep in mind that Smartcover has not been created to remove the tile, but to improve it. Therefore, the joints must remain joints.

Once this is done, just dry well and start painting.

Generally, the most common areas where tile paint is applied are bathrooms and kitchens, but anywhere there is tile, it can be painted. The only prerequisite for the product to adhere well is that the surface must be clean and free of grease.

Even if the tile is very old, it doesn't matter. If a joint needs to be touched up, you can use our Smart Jointer joint filler for 0 to 2 mm joints and enhance it for an even more perfect result.

Smartcover is a paint that stands out especially for its adherence and hardness in the finish. Its formulas offer a uniform finish that will not leave marks.

Tile coverings are usually found in rooms where the presence of water is common, such as bathrooms or kitchens. That is why Smartcover is a paint with a high degree of resistance to humidity and direct contact with water.

For this reason, Smartcover is a paint designed exclusively for painting tiles. Not just any paint can be used for this purpose.

Tile paint can be applied by brush, roller or spray gun. In addition to this, you only need a bucket to pour the paint and protective tape to delimit the surface and not splash. Generally, no primer is needed, but if the surface where you are going to paint is absorbent and you want to get better adhesion, you can first apply our Smart Primer ABS.

In our online store you can buy all the necessary material and products.

It is not necessary to use primer before painting the tiles, but on absorbent surfaces, such as plaster or plasterboard and those with thick joints, it is advisable to use Smart Primer ABS so that the paint adheres better.

Smartcover tile paint can be cleaned with any common cleaning product. A soft sponge should be used to avoid damaging the paint. In this way, it will not lose any of its technical or decorative properties.

The properties of Smartcover allow it to withstand direct water. Therefore, it is an ideal product for showers, bathtubs and kitchens as it repels water and maintains all its technical characteristics.

Smartcover is a product with very good technical characteristics:

  • It withstands direct water
  • It has high resistance to UV rays
  • It has a very high hardness
  • It has high resistance to abrasion and scratching

As in everything, the life span of the material will depend on the use it is given. In bathroom or kitchen tiles that are not cleaned constantly and do not get dirty normally, the paint can last more than a decade approximately. However, in places with more traffic such as floors or showers, it would last approximately 3 to 5 years. This information is very relative and may vary according to personal experience. In any case, the function of offering an easy, economic and lasting reform is fulfilled.

Smartcover is highly resistant to ultraviolet rays and does not yellow due to exposure to the sun or deteriorate over time.

Our Smartcover paint is characterized by its extremely fast drying time. Only 2-3 hours drying time of the paint layers is enough. In a short time, you will have the surface completely dry and renewed.

On floors it is recommended to allow 24 hours drying time before normal use.

Absorbent surfaces are those with materials such as plasterboard or gypsum.

And non-absorbent surfaces are those made of materials such as marble, terrazzo, tile, etc.
