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. 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.
Step 2 Prime – Depending on the material you are painting will determine what primer you will need.
Step 3 Topcoat – 12-24 hours after applying the primer you can add your first coat of topcoat. Wait another 12-24 hours and then apply the second coat.
Spray Application Guide
If applying with an air assisted or air assisted 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.
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.

Good Preperation of the is paramount to an excellent long lasting finish. Make sure substrate is clean from dust, dirt, moisture, oil etc before painting. and never pre seal the floor prior to painting espesally with laytex or PVC selaers paint will not stick.
