Its low odour properties combined with ease of application and speed of drying allow the work to be completed with a minimum of disruption. It gives a mid-sheen finish. It is wipeable and it comes in all our colours.

Wood, metal and plaster. Also suitable for use on wallboards, concrete, cement rendering, brickwork and block work in internal situations.

1 litre will cover approximately 12 square metres, depending on the nature and porosity of the surface. When using more than one tin of a colour in the same room, intermix before use.

Ensure surface to be painted is clean, dry and free from grease. Wear a suitable face mask when dry sanding. Remove all loose and defective paint. Rub down previously painted surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive to provide a good key. Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding. Prime where required with appropriate Primer. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.

Stir well before use. On absorbent surfaces, the first coat should be thinned when necessary to ease application, taking care not to over-thin. Suitable for application by brush, roller or spray. Apply two full coats, allowing 3-4 hours between coats under normal conditions. On certain surfaces a third coat may be necessary. For spray application, thin with clean water as required, using up to approximately 0.5 litres of water to 5 litres of paint. Do not apply when air or surface temperature is below 10˚C. Conditions of high humidity can prolong the drying time.

Remove as much product as possible from application equipment before cleaning. Clean equipment immediately after use in warm, soapy water and rinse thoroughly. Some local authorities have special facilities for disposal of waste coatings. Do not empty product into drains or watercourses. Replace lid firmly. Keep out of the reach of children.
