How to paint over glossy / slick surfaces (odourless method)

Zinsser Allcoat is excellent on non-porous glossy / slick surfaces. Its high adhesion succeeds where other paints fail.

Steps

1. Surface Preparation

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 18%. 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.
In areas with sound paint wash clean down with Zinsser Universal Cleaner & Degreaser to remove any contaminants. Rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove all residues. 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.

2. Priming

Prime all areas to be decorated with one full coat of Zinsser AllCoat® Solvent Based in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow a minimum drying time of 2 hours in normal drying conditions.

3. Decoration

Decorate with one or two coats of Zinsser AllCoat® Solvent Based in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
