Additional information

Surface Preparation

Do not apply to surfaces previously treated with a tar-based product. Drying times may be extended during low temperatures. The substrate needs to be sound, clean and grease free. On brickwork a thin skim coat of sand-cement render may be required to level the surface. Porous and warm, dry surfaces should be dampened with clean cold water.


  • Stir well before and occasionally during use.
  • Apply evenly and in one direction. Do not work like paint.
  • Allow drying thoroughly before subsequent coats are applied.
  • Total dried thickness of dried coats should be a minimum of 1.0mm.
  • Do not apply in wet weather or when rain or frost is likely.
  • Always ensure good ventilation.

Clean Up

Clean with water whilst still wet or with white spirit if dry.
