    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.
    • Ensure substrate is clean of any dirt, oil, or grease.

    Step 3 Prime – Apply first coat of primer

    Step 4 Topcoat- Once you have completed the following steps 12-24 hours after you can apply the first coat of top coat.

    Application - Painting a bare substrate 

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

    Step 2 Prime – Apply first coat of of primer.

    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.

    Mixing Advise

    Always stir any paint well prior to using, 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.

    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 to ensure colour is consistent throughout use.

    Spraying Advise

    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.
