16sqm/L on smooth surfaces (10sqm/L on rough, unpainted surfaces).
Ensure surfaces to be painted are clean and free of dust, dirt, mould, contaminants and any flaking or blistering paint. Fill any cracks or holes with a suitable filler. Surfaces previously painted with oil based enamel need to be cleaned with an etch cleaner, such as Gloss Off (DS88.01), to ensure adhesion. Use Ecolour Primer Undercoat for unpainted surfaces, then apply 2 top coats. An additional coat may be required if using or painting over deeper colours.
Stir well with a broad flat stirrer to a relatively even consistency. Do not apply in temperatures below 10ºC or above 35ºC. When applying in hot and windy conditions or when painting very absorbent surfaces, dampen the surface with water before painting or thin the paint with 100ml of water per litre.
Ecolour paints can be applied by roller, brush or spray gun. Apply 1 generous coat making sure the surface is covered thoroughly and evenly. Touch dry in 30 minutes. Allow 2 hours before applying top coat or longer in humid, cold or damp conditions.
