Application Tips

Two coats of paint are recommended for the best longest lasting finish.

If brushing thinning is not usually required but if you preferred to thin the product start 5%

Remember good preparation is paramount to an excellent long lasting finish.

Before you start, have your PPE ready as our paint is oil based so will not wash off easily with soap and water

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 -

  • Ensure substrate is dry and clean of any dirt, oil, or grease
  • 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. For the best protection spot prime with an appropriate primer.

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. 12-24 hours apply the second coat unthinned

Application - Painting a bare substrate 

Step 1 Clean - Ensure substrate is dry and clean of any dirt, oil, or grease.

Step 2 Prime – Depending on the material you are painting a primer may be needed see 'Primers' section below. For mild steel you can go straight ahead with this paint however for harsh environments a primer can be used.

Step 3 Topcoat – Apply paint, 12-24 hours after apply the second coat.

Other Application Advice

Always stir any paint well prior to using.

Make sure you use a broom stick, mixer on a slow running drill or pallet knife to mix 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.

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.

If applying with a pot gun
If applying with a pot gun
Use a 1:2 to 1:4 tip set up thinning by 10% if required.

More thinners may be added to achieve good atomization to achieve better flow of the paint giving a better finish.

If applying with an airassisted or airassisted airless system
Use a 11-13 thou tip no thinners usually required.

If thinning is necessary use around 10%

Set air and paint pressures until good atomization is achieved and fingering (lines in the spray) have blended in.
