SURFACE PREPARATION AND APPLICATION
1. Remove all loose friable material.
2. If plaster is porous and / or under bound, apply 1 coat of Paintcor’s AcrySeal Acrylic Sealer diluted
1:1 with water. Allow to dry.
3. If plaster is of good quality, then apply 1 coat of PlasterPrime. Allow to dry.
4. It may be necessary to use Paintcor’s AcrylUnder or SubTex to correct plaster imperfections after
sealing or priming.
5. Finally apply 2 coats of Essence. Allow ± 45 minutes to dry @25°C between coats.
Previously Painted Plaster
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 existing plaster.
2. Apply 1 coat of Paintcor’s AcrySeal Acrylic Sealer to all exposed plaster. Allow to dry.
3. Apply 1 coat AcrylUnder to all exposed sealed plaster. Allow to dry.
4. Finally apply 2 coats of Essence. Allow ± 45 minutes to dry @25°C between coats.
If the paint system is in good condition, i.e. no peeling paint, wash walls to remove all dirt and dust.
Allow to dry. Apply 2 coats of Essence. Allow to dry between coats.
New Gypsum Plaster
1. Wipe new gypsum plaster down to remove any dirt or dust. Ensure plaster is dry.
2. Make sure that the gypsum plaster has been properly applied and has cured hard with no more
dust on the surface, then apply 1 coat of Paintcor’s Plaster Prime OR should the Gypsum plaster
have cured to a soft chalky surface (when wiping, white powder is continually released) then seal
with 1 coat of Paintcor’s RhinoSeal. Allow ± 1 hour to dry @ 25 degrees C.
3. Finally apply 2 coats of Paintcor’s Essence Pure Acrylic to the colour of your choice. Allow to dry
Note: It is not necessary to use PlasterPrime if RhinoSeal has been applied.
1. Sand Wood to a clean, smooth finish. Remove sanding dust.
