Weathershield® MaxiFlex® Stretch Technology
Dulux guarantees that Dulux Weathershield® will not blister, flake or peel for as long as you live in your home*. It contains MaxiFlex® Stretch Technology that gives your picket fence a tough, flexible finish for long life protection from all weather conditions.
Test if the paintwork is in good condition by cutting a small ‘X’ through the existing paint with a sharp blade and press cellulose tape firmly across the cut, then rip off the tape. If the paint comes off, this means it is unsound and should be removed.
Open and stir your paint thoroughly. Start by painting the board that runs along the bottom of your fence, then paint the valleys where your roller can’t reach. Once you’ve painted all three sides of the valley use a roller in a vertical up-and-down motion, to paint the vertical panels.
After you’ve finished painting the first coat, allow at least two hours before applying a second coat. Once dry, follow the same process as you did for the first coat. If you are painting bare timber, you may need to apply a third coat to achieve a consistent, even coverage.
