Minor Colour variation:
When several containers of paint are tinted to the one specified colour, minor variations in colour may occasionally occur between the containers. To ensure absolutely perfect colour consistency, all the containers of tinted paint should be poured into a separate container, or “boxed”, prior to mixing and application.

Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from all surface contamination. Wash down the surface with detergent, followed by a rinse with clean water. Treat mould with bleach then rinse with fresh water. Fill in surface defects such as cracks or holes with a suitable filler, putty or sealant.

Stir paint well in a circular lifting motion for 5 minutes before use with a broad flat paddle. Apply two coats by using a 10mm–12mm roller sleeve and good quality brush. Extra coats may be required for application by brush only. It is also important to avoid using poor quality or worn rollers as they can adversely affect the final finish. Spray Application: Airless Spray or HVLP. Thin up to 10%.
Coverage
Approximately 16m² per litre depending on the nature of the surface. Coverage on rough and/or porous surfaces will be lower.
During Painting
Keep floors and furniture covered. Ensure adequate ventilation during application and drying. Keep the lid on containers when not in use. Do not paint when temperature is below 10°C. Keep the container sealed when not in use.
After Painting
Avoid exposure to steam & condensation for 48 hours. Surfaces may be washed after 7 days.
