Surfaces should be dry and free from loose and flaking materials, dirt, grease, wax etc. Sound paint should be tested for solvent reaction by applying Pond Paint over a small test area and checking for softening or lifting of the old film.
For porous surfaces, thin the first coat with 5-10% of Palatine M.P Thinners and 1 – 2 subsequent neat coats. For bare mild steel the paint can be applied directly, however to maximise the coatings life span apply Palatine Fast Dry Anti-Corrosive Metal Primer which contains active Zinc Phosphate to inhibit rust. For Galvanised steel treat with Mordant solution (T- Wash).
On bare concrete it is recommended that the first coat be diluted with approx. 10-20% Palatine M.P Thinners by volume or For optimum performance Palatine Pliocem Concrete Sealer prior to application. This will act as a binding primer and help seal the Concrete surface. Once dried, a second coat can be applied at full strength.
Stir well before use. Apply by brush or a solvent resistant roller. Do not thin unless applying onto absorbent surfaces when up to 10% of Palatine M.P Thinners can be added. Apply paint evenly and do not apply in temperatures below 10 C. Avoid applying the paint too thickly to avoid delaying drying times. If using more than one batch of the same colour, intermix before use. Drying times will be extended at low temperatures. At 20 C; touch dry after 2-4 hours, re coat after 24 hours and within 7 days. If more than 7 days elapse, the first coat should be lightly abraded before the second coat is applied. Minimum 2 – 3 coats recommended. Avoid washing the surface for 7 days following application.
Keep coated areas dry for a minimum of 24 hours following application. Theoretical Coverage: 12 – 14m² per litre. Coverage rate can be affected by such variables as type and condition of substrate, type of application equipment and individual method of application. For Thinning and Cleaning use Palatine M.P Thinners.
Please note: The colours on the product listings are only given as a guide. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor has a different capability to display colours. In addition, everyone sees these colours differently. Sample pots are available to order upon request. Always carry out a test patch (approximately 100x100mm) before full application to ensure compatibility with previous coatings and the substrate, and to ensure the colour achieved meets your requirements. Failure to do so will result in a product refund claim not being accepted.
