Before applying the product
Always start by reading the instructions on the container, and remember to be meticulous from the very start of the paint job. The proper tools and careful preparations, are prerequisites for successful results. Stir the paint thoroughly before you start applying the product. The ambient temperature is another factor that determines the end result. Do not apply the product if it is colder than +5°C. The surface to be treated must be clean, brushed with a wire brush or sandblasted. Remove any oil stains using a suitable solvent. Remember to protect floors and furniture before starting the application.


Applying the product
It is important to perform protective procedures as soon as possible after cleaning the surface in order to prevent corrosion. We suggest that you dilute the first application with 20% water in order to help the primer to penetrate into the surface. For the second coat, you should apply the product undiluted.
Cover the product with two coats of our sealant Sköld. The product is to be applied with brush or a paint roller. It can also be applied by using a spray gun, but then the product must be diluted with 10–20% white spirit.


After applying the product
Wipe off any excess product before cleaning the tools with white spirit. Close the lid of the container properly before storing it out of reach of children. Any residue of the product should not be disposed of in the drains, but should be disposed of in a proper and approved manner. We care about the environment, and so should you.
