Protect our environment:

Do not pour leftover paint down the drain. Unwanted paint should be brushed out on newspaper, allowed to dry and then disposed of via domestic waste collections. Empty paint containers should be left open in a well-ventilated area to dry out. When dry, recycle steel containers via steel can recycling programs. Disposal of empty paint containers via domestic recycling programs may differ between local authorities. Check with your local council first.

How to apply

Preparations & Directions:

Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from all surface contamination. Treat mould with bleach then rinse with clean water. Fill in the surface defects with suitable filler, putty or sealant. Avoid using masking tape on wall and ceiling paints.

Previously painted (aged enamel) surfaces

Remove all loose and flaking paint. No undercoat is required when painting over aged enamel providing the surface has been sanded thoroughly.

Previously painted (other) surfaces

Remove all loose and flaking paint and sand glossy or enamel surfaces thoroughly. Prime bare areas with a suitable PPG preparation product.

To ensure an even surface when painting over patchy or contrasting colours apply a suitable PPG preparation product.

New Work

Paper faced plasterboard, MDF, fibre cement, masonry and timber: apply one coat of a suitable PPG

preparation product.

Application:

Confirm colour before use. Apply two coats using a 5mm (length of nap or pile) roller or good quality brush. Avoid overspreading. If painting a large flat trim area, such as a door, apply by roller for best appearance.

  • Stir paint in a circular lifting motion for 5 minutes before use
  • Drying time: 1 – 2 hours (touch dry)
  • Recoat: 4 – 6 hours at 25°C (allow longer in cold or humid areas)
  • Do not paint at temperatures below 10°C

Coverage:

Up to 10 – 12m² per litre. Coverage will be lower on rough or absorbent surfaces.

Yellowing:

Alkyd based enamel paints yellow under certain conditions. Contact PPG Customer Service Department on 0800 131 686 for details.

During Painting:

Ensure adequate ventilation. Keep floors and furniture covered. Keep the lid on containers when not in use.

Clean Up:

Scrape excess paint from equipment into separate container. Wash up with water. Do not dispose of paint or wash water in drains or sewers.

After Painting:

Avoid exposure to steam for 48 hours. Surface may be washed after 7 days but always avoid abrasive cleaners.
