• process)
• No lead is added in during the manufacturing process.
• All pigments used are non-toxic.

AREAS OF USE
• Doors and Door Frames
• Window Frames
• Skirting Boards

• Home Trim

SURFACE PREPARATION AND APPLICATION
MILD STEEL – PREVIOUSLY PAINTED
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.
2. Remove all loose or peeling paint.
3. Wash existing paint to remove all dirt and grime. Rinse well and allow to dry.
4. Sand existing paint to a clean matt finish. Remove sanding dust.
5. Sand exposed metal (if any) to bright steel. Remove sanding dust.
6. Apply 2 coats of Paintcor’s EnviroPrime or 1 coat of Paintcor’s AllPrime Plus to exposed metal only. Allow to dry between coats.
7. Apply 1 coat Paintcor’s UniSub Universal Undercoat. Allow to dry.
8. Apply 1 or 2 coats of Paintcor’s HiGlo enamel by brush, roller or spray. In case of spray, 10% turpentine may be added. Allow 6 hours to dry between coats.

MILD STEEL – NEW
1. Degrease steel. Shot blast the steel according to SA2.5 specification to remove mill scale and other contaminants (or sand back to bright finish by hand), before the steel rusts.
2. Apply 2 coats of Paintcor’s EnviroPrime or 1 coat of Paintcor’s AllPrime Plus to all steel to be painted. Allow to dry between coats.
3. Apply 1 coat of Paintcor’s UniSub Universal Undercoat. Allow to dry.
4. Apply 1 or 2 coats of Paintcor’s HiGlo Enamel with brush, roller or spray. In case of spray 10% turpentine may be added. Allow 6 hours to dry between coats.
DOORS AND FRAMES –NEW

FOR OUSTANDING RESULTS ON NEW FRAMES AND DOORS
1. After sanding and priming the frame and door, apply at least 2 coats of UniSub, sanding between and after the coats with a 320-grit water paper. Remove sanding dust.
2. Apply the first coat of HiGlo Enamel undiluted. Allow to dry.
3. Sand again with 320 grit water paper.
4. Apply a 2nd coat of HiGlo enamel diluted with 10% mineral turpentine. Allow at least 6 hours to dry and sand again with 320 grit water paper.
5. Apply a 3rd and final coat diluted with 15% with mineral turpentine. Allow to dry. This will leave you with a high gloss door that appears to have been sprayed. (Well worth the trouble!)

NEW PLASTER OR GYPSUM PLASTER
1. Prime new plaster with plaster primer. See PlasterPrime D.A. Sheet.
