• Paint techniques

1. Remove all loose and friable materials.
2. If plaster is poor and under bound, apply one coat of Paintcor’s AcrySeal acrylic sealer, diluted 1:1 with water. Allow to dry. Apply 1 coat of Paintcor’s Acrylunder (only necessary for smoother finishes). Allow to dry followed by 2 coats of Pristina allowing 45 minutes @ 25 degrees C to dry between coats
3. If the plaster is of good quality, apply one coat of Paintcor’s PlasterPrime. Allow sufficient time to dry.
4. Apply two coats of Pristina. Allow 45 minutes @ 25 degrees C to dry between coats.
Check the adhesion strength of the existing paint using the cross-hatch method.
1. Using a Stanley knife to cut through the paint surface. Do this vertically and horizontally to the
substrate, approximately 3mm apart, creating little squares.
2. 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.
3. Remove all old paint back to existing plaster.
4. If surface is powdery or chalking, wash surface to remove all powder. Allow sufficient time to dry.
5. Apply one coat of Paintcor’s AcrySeal acrylic sealer diluted 1:1 with water to all exposed plaster and washed chalking surfaces. Allow sufficient time to dry.
6. Spot prime the sealed exposed plaster with one coat of Paintcor’s Acrylunder to help prevent an
uneven finish. Allow to dry
7. Finally apply two coats of Pristina. Allow sufficient time to dry in between coats.

If adhesion is good:
1. Wash the walls down to remove all dirt, dust and chalk, allowing to dry. Should there still be slight chalk deposits on the wall then apply 1 coat of Paintcor’s AcrySeal Acrylic Sealer diluted 1:1 with water to the entire surface to be painted. Allow to dry.
2. Apply two coats of Pristina. Allow sufficient time to dry in between coats.
