Preparation
Surfaces must be clean, dry & free from all surface contamination. Treat mould with bleach then rinse with clean water. Fill in the surface defects with suitable filler, putty or sealant. Avoid using masking tape on wall and ceiling paints.
New Work
Paper faced plasterboard, masonry & timber: apply one coat of Taubmans 3 in 1.
Previously Painted Surfaces
Remove all loose and flaking paint and sand glossy or enamel surfaces thoroughly with fine paper. Prime bare areas with Taubmans 3 in 1. To ensure an even surface when painting over patchy or contrasting colours apply Taubmans 3 in 1. For previously painted enamel surfaces undercoat with Taubmans 3 in 1.
Application
Confirm colour before use. Apply two coats using a 5mm (length of a nap or pile) roller or good quality brush. Avoid thick coats as this will cause runs to appear. If painting a large flat trim area, such as a door, apply a roller for best appearance.
