Instructions for use


A highly durable universal paint designed for direct application to many surfaces. Can be applied directly to wood, metal, most plastics, ceramics and even rust. No primer needed.

Prepare It

Remove oil, grease and all other surface contamination by cleaning with appropriate detergents. Remove loose rust by scraping and wire brushing or sanding. Lightly abrade UPVC, remove any dust and wipe with methylated spirit.

Apply It

Stir thoroughly before use. Apply 1-2 coats with a brush or short pile mohair roller. For roller application lay off immediately with a brush. For best performance on non-ferrous or galvanised metals use Universal Special Metals Primer prior to application. For porous surfaces dilute first coat with 10% white spirit.

Dry It

Touch dry in 2 hours. Handle after 8 hours. Apply a second coat after 16 hours if necessary. Full hardness is achieved after 7 days. Ensure application conditions are favourable for painting, we recommend that the temperature is between 10⁰C - 32⁰C with a maximum humidity of 80%, do not apply in direct sunlight or if conditions are humid.

Cover It

Up to 9m² / litre. Coverage may vary depending upon method and rate of application and porosity of surface.

Clean It

Remove as much paint from brushes as possible before cleaning. Clean with a suitable brush cleaner or soak in white spirit for 5-10 minutes, rinse and dry thoroughly.

What else do I need to know?
