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 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
  • If in doubt always test a small area prior to use
  • Not to be applied if there is salt contamination or frost


  • Stir well before use as stainers used can separate with time, best to mix thoroughly when using different batches
  • 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
  • Please follow the coverage rates shown in Spreading Rate Section
  • 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
  • Priming is not normally required, however the first coat on concrete or porous surfaces, should first be thinned up to 10% with water and allow to dry
  • Apply during April to October (exterior)

Initial Use After Application:

  • Britannia Marking 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
