    Additional information

    Surface Preparation

    All surfaces to be painted should be clean, dry and free from loose and flaking material. Prime bare surfaces with the appropriate Johnstones Primer.

    Rub down previously gloss painted surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly before applying a pre-coat of Johnstones Joncryl Water Based Primer Undercoat. Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding.

    Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre 1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.


    • Stir thoroughly before use.
    • Easy to apply by brush or roller.
    • If more than one can of a colour is to be used in the same area, intermix before use.
    • Do not apply in temperatures below 10°C.

    Clearing Up

    Remove as much product as possible from application equipment before cleaning. Replace lid firmly.

    Clean equipment immediately after with warm soapy water and rinse thoroughly.

    Do not empty into drains and watercourses.
