Arte Mundit - ideal for cleaning interior historic wall surfaces?
The latest developments for cleaning interior wall surfaces are peel-off pastes based on a specially formulated natural latex dispersion. As the water evaporates, the polymer crosslinks into an elastic film that adheres to the surface to be cleaned. This film can be easily removed mechanically without the use of water. The cleaning effect is based on two different principles, which vary depending on the type of contamination and formulation of the product. On the one hand, surface dirt remains stuck to the resulting film, on the other hand, the ingredients loosen and complex certain compounds on the surface to be cleaned and are then also incorporated into the latex film.
The different types of Arte Mundit
The basic product Arte Mundit Type I is a specially formulated aqueous dispersion of natural rubber. If the contamination present is more extensive than just adhering dust particles and needs to be removed via chemical means, the basic material is supplemented with small quantities of various complexing agents. As the addition of these components affects the viscosity of the latex dispersion, the end product must be reconfigured in each case in order to achieve the desired working properties.Therefore, different types of Arte Mundit are available according to the level and nature of the active cleaning substances.
The success of an Arte Mundit type (I, II, III, V or Eco) depends on the substrate and on the nature and intensity of the contamination and is therefore difficult to predict. For this reason, different types should always be tested on small trial areas.

Advantages of Arte Mundit
In contrast to many other methods, cleaning with Arte Mundit caneasily be carried out while the building is being used.
Virtually no water is needed
No dust is generated
Low noise pollution
Almost any surface can be cleaned, including sensitive and valuable substrates
Easy to apply with a brush or sprayer
No chemical after-effects/no “contamination” of the substratewith constituents of Arte Mundit
User-friendly and highly efficient
Salts in the substrate are not activated
Also cleans deeper pores and moulded parts
Recent Case Study Arte Mundit ECO:
Fintan applying arte mundit eco to intricately detailed historical marble frameworks.
As evident from the provided images, the frames have been thoroughly cleaned, eliminating all dirt using Remmers Arte Mundit ECO.
The application of Remmers Arte Mundit ECO is incredibly swift and effortless, allowing for a smooth and efficient cleaning process.
The substrate being cleaned must be dry and free from dust and loose debris.
Use a suitable tool to coarsely clean off the substrate.
Take appropriate measures to protect adjacent building elements and materials that should not come into contact with the product.
Set up a trial area to determine the cleaning effect
Stir the material thoroughly using a suitable tool.
Apply with suitables tools to the full substrate area.
Apply material over the entire surface manually or by airless spraying.
Fill undercut areas and contours thoroughly with the material.
After 24 hours and once completely dry, remove the film by pulling it off, keeping the tensile force as constant as possible.
Cleaned surfaces can be further cleaned with a damp sponge or medium-hard brush (nylon bristles).
Use as little water as possible.
