Stir paint well in a circular lifting motion for 5 minutes before use with a broad flat paddle. Apply one coat of Tradex UltraPrep (where required) and two coats of Tradex topcoat (Ceiling, Matt, Low Sheen or Semi-Gloss) by using a good quality brush and roller sleeve (12mm for Ceiling, Matt & Low Sheen; 8-10mm for Semi-Gloss). Extra coats may be required for application by brush only. It is also important to avoid using poor quality or worn rollers and brushes as they can adversely affect the final finish. Spray Application: Airless Spray or HVLP. Thin up to 10%.

Oil based enamel paints yellow under certain conditions. Contact Taubmans Customer Service Department on 131 686 for details. To prevent yellowing on interior surfaces and to avoid solvent odours, use Taubmans Endure Doors & Trim, in place of oil based enamels. For superior colour retention on external surfaces use Taubmans Endure Exterior.
During Painting
Ensure adequate ventilation during use. Keep floors and furniture covered. Keep the lid on containers when not in use.
