Steps

1. Surface Preparation and Priming

All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from anything that will interfere with the adhesion of the materials to be applied. Remove loose and failing material by scraping or brushing with a stiff bristle brush to a sound edge. Feather sound edges with a fine grade abrasive paper. Prior to painting, the moisture content should not exceed 12%. Remove all dust. Remove all visible signs of organic growth and treat the areas with Zinsser Mould Killer in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow to dry.
Fill any cracks and small surface defects with a suitable filler as appropriate in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow to dry. Rub down with a fine grade abrasive paper. Remove all dust.
Patch prime all bare and filled areas with one coat of Bulls Eye® 1-2-3 Plus in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow a minimum drying time of 2 hours in normal drying conditions.

2. Priming

Prime all areas to be decorated with one full coat of Bulls Eye® 1-2-3 Plus. For best results 2 coats are recommended. Allow two
hours drying time when using as a stain blocker.

3. Decoration

Decorate with two full coats of Perma-White® Interior in Matt, Satin or Semi-Gloss in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow a minimum drying time of 2 hours between coats.

*For severe staining or odour blocking Zinsser B-I-N Primer would be our best recommendation. See how-to here.
