PREPARATION AND DIRECTIONS
Fill surface defects with suitable filler or sealant. Surface must be clean, dry and free from all dirt, dust, grease, oil, rust and any other surface contamination.
PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES
Remove loose and flaking paint and sand surface thoroughly. On aged enamel use PPG 3 in 1 for inter-coat adhesion. Treat bare areas as for new work.
NEW WORK/UNPAINTED SURFACES
Timber: Sand weathered (greyed) timber to the original timber surface. Tannin rich timbers should be primed with PPG 3 in 1.
Galvanised Iron: Degrease new surfaces, thoroughly clean weathered surfaces to ensure adhesion. For structural galvanised iron, abrade with 240# paper to remove chemical treatments. If red rust is present, treat as for steel.
Cement Render/Concrete: Allow concrete, cement render and mortar to cure for 28 days before painting.
Steel: Remove rust and prime with White Knight Rust Guard Metal Primer.
Confirm colour before use. Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid painting in direct sun or windy conditions. Dampen highly absorbent surfaces. Disconnect drinking water pipes before painting roofs, reconnect after first rain.
Apply using a brush, roller or spray. Use two generous coats and three on unpainted surfaces.
