SURFACE PREPARATION AND APPLICATION
1. Remove all loose friable material.
2. If the plaster is porous and/or under bound then apply 1 coat of Paintcor’s AcrySeal Acrylic Sealer diluted 1:1 with water. Allow to dry, then if necessary, apply 1 coat of Paintcor’s AcrylUnder and allow to dry.
3. If plaster is of good quality then apply 1 coat of Paintcor’s Plaster Prime. Allow to dry followed by 1 coat of AcrylUnder if necessary. Allow to dry. (please see note)
4. Finally apply at least 2 coats of Elegance Silk at a spread rate of no more than 10 meters square per litre per coat. Allow to dry between coats.
1. Check adhesion of existing paint. (Cross hatch adhesion test). Using a Stanley knife, cut through the paint surface to the substrate vertically and horizontally approximately 3mm apart, creating little squares. If the edges of the squares curl up, and the square can easily be removed, this means the adhesion of the old paint system is failing. If the paint system is failing, remove all old paint back to a sound surface.
2. Apply 1 coat of Paintcor’s AcrySeal Acrylic Sealer diluted 1:1 with water to all areas to be painted (if old paint system was failing) Allow to dry. Apply 1 coat of Paintcor’s AcrylUnder (if necessary). Allow to dry. (please see note)
3. If paint system is in good condition, wash down walls to remove dirt and dust. Allow to dry.
4. Finally apply at least two coats of Paintcor’s Elegance Silk at a spread rate of no more than 10 square meters per litre per coat. Allow to dry between coats.
Note: AcrylUnder is only necessary after priming or sealing plaster if plaster texture is a problem.
Paintcor’s SubTex or RippleTex can also be used to correct major plaster texture differences
before application of top coats.
