To get the best results with Armstead Trade Eggshell, make sure surfaces to be painted are sound, clean and dry (new surfaces particularly must be fully dry).
Brush or roller only. For Health and Safety reasons related to all solvent-based paints, spray application is not recommended. Stir thoroughly before use. The normal finishing process is 2 full coats of Armstead Trade Eggshell. However, where a strong colour change is required then a coat of an appropriate coloured Armstead Trade Undercoat may be necessary.
Touch dry: 4-6 hours
Recoat: 16-24 hours.
Whilst leading-edge technology has been used in the development of this product, the nature of white solvent-based paints means that they will all discolour over time. The rate of discolouration is faster on areas with no or low natural or UV light. For longer-lasting whiteness, we recommend the use of a water-based formulation such as Armstead Trade Durable Acrylic Eggshell.
After use, remove as much paint as possible from equipment before cleaning with brush cleaner. Do not use or store in extremes of temperature. When this paint container is empty please ask your stockist about recycling.
