Preparation

Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from loose and flaking material, dirt, grease etc. Repairs should be carried out prior to painting. Areas contaminated with fungal or algal growth should be treated with a proprietary fungicidal wash or with 25% household bleach before painting. Surfaces previously treated with oil-based paint should be lightly abraded before painting..

Application

Stir well before use. Ready for use by brush, roller or airless spray. On porous surfaces up to 5% water may be added to assist application. On very porous surfaces e.g. plaster up to 25% water may be necessary. Two coats over a suitably primed surface are recommended for maximum protection.

Clean up

Equipment should be cleaned with water immediately after use.

Precautions

Always read the can label before use. Do not apply to surfaces below 5°C or if there is a risk of heavy rain or frost during application or drying.
