    Additional information

    Surface Preparation

    All surfaces to be painted should be clean, dry and free from loose and flaking material.

    Wash down oily timbers such as teak with White Spirit and allow to dry.

    Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding.

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


    • Stir well before use.
    • Easy to apply by brush paying particular attention to the end grain.

    Clearing Up

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

    Clean equipment immediately after use with TC2 Thinner and Cleaner.

    Do not empty product into drains or watercourses.
