Surface must be clean, dry and free from all surface contamination. Treat mould with bleach then rinse with clean water. Fill in surface defects with a suitable filler or sealant. Sand smooth before painting and sand lightly between coats.

Stir paint well in a circular lifting motion for 5 minutes before use with a broad flat paddle. Apply one coat of your desired Tradex prep using a good quality brush and roller sleeve (a 10-12mm nap roller cover or similar will give best results). 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%.

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, or above 35°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.
Finishing
Apply two coats of an appropriate Taubmans water or oil based topcoat.
