Mixing and Thinning
Make sure you use a mixer on a slow running drill, pallet knife or a broom stick that reaches the bottom of the can and mixing should take place for 3-5 mins to ensure all the content is properly mixed together to avoid colour and or drying problems.
You can purchase a mixer from us just click here
Thinners required are White Spirit T0001. If thinning is required when applying by a brush or roller start by gradually adding 5% but do not thin more an 10% as the paint won’t cover
As our coatings are heavily pigmented separation can easily occur and you can have colour float, for example a green paint can seem blue before mixing, this is one of the reasons mixing your paint before use is essential.
Application - Painting over existing paint
Step 1 - Check suitability of the product to the existing paint. We recommend you try a sample area first.
Step 2 Clean and Abrade -
- Make sure the existing paint is in good condition prior to painting, then lightly abrade to provide a key for good intercoat adhesion.
- If there is flaking paint this must be removed prior to painting.
- For any parts that has rusted you will need to sand the rust back to the bare metal and spot prime with the appropriate primer.
- Ensure substrate is clean of any dirt, oil, or grease
Step 3 Prime – This step is down to personal preference, depending on the condition of the existing paint or if you are changing a dark colour to a light you may want to add one coat of primer.
Step 4 Topcoat- Once you have completed the following steps you can apply your top coat.
Application - Painting a bare substrate
Step 1 Clean - Ensure substrate is clean of any dirt, oil, or grease.
