Additional information

Surface Preparation

All surfaces should be sound, clean, dry and free from grease.

Remove any crazed or flaking paint. Rub down sound glossy surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly to provide a key.

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 painted surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.


  • Stir well.
  • Apply only by brush.
  • The brush should be fully loaded for best results.
  • One coat will provide adequate film build and opacity; however two coats will offer added protection and coverage.
  • If more than one tin is to be used, intermix prior to use.

Clearing up

Clean equipment immediately after use with White Spirit or Turpentine Substitute.
