Spreading Rate

These will vary depending on substrate, the site conditions and longevity required.

Typically spreading rates will vary depending on the end use.

  • 6-8 square metres per litre for spray application
  • 2-3 square metres per litre for brush or roller application
  • Dependent on substrate, texture and porosity of the surface
  • Apply 2 coats

Drying Times

  • Drying is approximately 2-4 hours dependent on ambient temperature
  • Avoid painting when rain is expected or under poor drying conditions – below 5°C
  • Curing of the coating can be extended at lower temperatures, dependent on coating thickness, substrate and texture


  • All surfaces should be thoroughly power washed before application of a binder prior to topcoating for best results
  • All surfaces should be dry (not damp)
  • Free from loose or flaking material, dirt grease and vegetative growth
  • Vacuum or pressure blasting with air or water may remove any debris
  • Brushing (manual or machine) may be suitable
  • Not to be applied if there is salt contamination or frost


  • Stir well before use as stainers used can separate over time, mix thoroughly when using different batches
  • Please follow the Coverage rates shown in Spreading Rate Section
  • Surfaces that are cold – below 5°C – are not suitable for coating. Hot surfaces – above 30°C – should be cooled with water spray before application otherwise paint will dry before film formation is completed
  • Apply an even coat either by brush, roller or by airless spray
  • Tip size of 28 Thou is recommended for airless spray
  • A new macadam surface should be left to oxidise for at least four weeks (longer in winter than in summer) before painting
  • Not suitable for use on open graded macadam or other materials incorporating “cut back” bitumen
  • New concrete should be allowed to mature for several months before coating

Initial play on the surface:

  • Britannia Playground Paint should be applied during the summer months, when surfaces should be left to dry for approximately 2-4 hours before they are re-opened for use
  • At the beginning and towards the end of summer, when temperatures are cooler and drying can take longer, it is advisable to extend this period by 1-2 hours or even overnight depending on the prevailing weather


  • Clean all equipment immediately with water after use

Shelf Life & Storage

  • Up to 12 months if stored correctly in an unopened container
  • Store above 5°C


  • Keep out of reach of children
  • In case of contact with eyes wash immediately with plenty of water
  • Remove splashes from skin with soap and water or a recognised hand cleaner
  • Protect from freezing
  • Do not apply paint if there is a risk of heavy rain or frost
  • Do not use near fishponds
