    Albany Acrylic Eggshell is suitable for interior use on a wide variety of surfaces where a durable hardwearing mid sheen finish is required.
    It is non yellowing and dries with very little odour.

    Preparation
    Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from grease or dust. Any new or bare surfaces should be primed with Albany Acrylic Basecoat. Bare metals should first be primed with an Albany Metal Primer.
    Special precautions should be taken during preparation of pre-1960's paint surfaces as they may contain harmful lead. Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding.
