Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and free of all dirt, dust, grease, loose or flaking paint. Efflorescence or mould on masonry or concrete surfaces must be treated. Occasionally an apparently sound old paint will lose adhesion when recoated, particularly if the new paint is darker in colour. To avoid this, check the adhesion of the old paint by cutting an 'X' through a clean area of the film with a sharp blade, press cellulose tape firmly across the cut and rip if off. If the old paint comes off with the tape it should be removed before repainting.

Clean Up

Clean all equipment with water
