    Directions of use:

    • Little Greene Intelligent Exterior Eggshell is supplied ready for use without the need for thinning. Stir thoroughly prior to use.
    • Lightly rubbing down between coats will remove any dust motes and other surface contamination, producing a near professional finish.
    • Application by brush, roller or spray.
    • Application and use should always conform to the codes of practice described in BS 6150 and BS 5493.

    Surface Preparation:

    New Wood - Non preservative treated softwood timber should be preserved with a proprietary wood preserver. For best results on new, uncoated wood that is resinous in nature or contains resinous knots, apply two coats of aluminium wood primer to prevent staining and/or discolouration, prior to undercoating. All smooth planed timber should be thoroughly sanded and cleaned ensuring that the timber is dry and free of contamination and dust. Rough sawn timber should be cleaned free of dust and other debris or contamination. Proceed with two coats of Little Greene Intelligent Exterior Eggshell.

    Existing paint finish - Remove all loose and flaking paintwork. Degrease with a suitable detergent solution, such as sugar soap, followed by clean water rinse. Rub down thoroughly with a medium grade sand paper to provide a key and a defect free smooth surface, “feathering in” areas where paint has been removed. Make good any repairs, sand and apply a primer coat of Little Greene Intelligent Exterior Eggshell to exposed surface as appropriate. Proceed with 2 coats of Little Greene Intelligent Exterior Eggshell.

    Metals - New ferrous metalwork should be hand, or mechanically cleaned, to remove any surface rust before application of Little Greene Traditional Oil Primer Undercoat. Non-ferrous metals must be pre-treated or primed with an appropriate proprietary primer.
