On rough surfaces it may be necessary to dilute the paint by about 10% with fresh water. Use only where application and drying can proceed at temperatures above 5ºC, preferably above 10ºC and relative humidity below 85%. Temperature of surface should be 5 to 35º C.
The surface should be stable, firm and free of dust, sand, loose old paint, laitance, dirt, grease and oil prior to using to avoid problems such as uneven or patchy drying.
Surfaces should be cleaned down to remove surface contaminants prior to applying.
Before using the paint, it should be thoroughly mixed. Shaking the container will ensure possible all pigment in the paint is dissolved.
Ensure you check the colour by conducting a test area to ensure the finished colour is suitable. Variable substrates can change the appearance of the paint.
One or Two coats can be applied to achieve the desired coverage and colour depth. The best results are achieved between 18°C and 22°C with good air movement and ventilation.
Where required apply ican Grepp Primer to improve paint adhesion. Use a fine-tipped Synthetic Bristle Brush to apply the paint in a vertical direction then spread the paint out evenly in a horizontal direction. Lay off the final coat in one direction to eliminate brush.
When using Roller application, use a medium pile woven polyester roller. Apply the paint in sloping strokes to spread the paint consistently. Repeat this action by operating in small sections. Always dry to wet areas to minimise roller marks. Lay the final coat in a single direction to ensure that any roller marks are minimised.
When Airless Spraying set up of 18 thou (457µm) 65° angle tip using a pressure of between 2000–2700 psi (138–186 bar) for good results.
When HVLP Spraying the paint may need to be diluted with water by up to 10%. Trial with the air control valve, material flow adjustment, fan size and spray pattern settings on a discreet area until you are happy with the finish. Spray several thin coats, allowing each coat to dry fully before applying the next one.
Wipe lightly with a soft damp cloth or sponge. Please note that matt finish of this paint will mean that some colours will become marked.
Clean brushes and rollers with warm soapy water.
