New concrete should be left to cure for 2-3 months before painting.
Surfaces should be dry, dirt and dust free, grease, oils, polishes, and flaking paint removed. Concrete should be acid etched with Hydrochloric Acid and high pressure cleaned. For
pre-painted surfaces before recoating try a small test patch first to check compatibility with existing surface.
Please use a mask, goggles, gloves, and footwear when using Hydrochloric Acid.
Bare timber will require priming or undercoating. Coverage is 6 to 10 square meters per litre depending on the surface or if recoating.
Washes up in mineral turpentine. For steep and very smooth surfaces Anti-Slip or fine sand should be sprinkled on between coats. Make sure you stir the paint well and check for
settling on the bottom of the can before painting.
What else do I need to know?
1. If you are going to spray, you might need to thin the paint out with mineral turps depending on the spray unit.
2. Do not paint if temperature is less than 12°C
3. We recommend you use gloves, protective clothing, eye protection, breathing apparatus, protective footwear and have adequate ventilation.
