Hi, I have a patch on my staircase (outside wall) that gets condensation on it when we have heating on. I’ve recently painted it with f&b that has 7% sheen the condensation didn’t appear before we painted. Would this work and then repaint over it or would it just do the same after f&b top coat? Thank you.


This paint is suitable for application to walls to address condensation and can be over painted with emulsion paints.

The level of condensation will determine if this will be sucessful, increasing airflow and or addressing the cause would also aid this.

Hi, I am building a garden room and am thinking of cladding the ceiling with corrugated galvanised sheets. If I applied a primer and this on top would it prevent condensation on the ceiling?


The paint will reduce condensation given the correct environment, assuming the glavanized steel is clean, dry and prepared as detailed in the Technical Data sheet you will require Coo-Var Water Based All Metals Primer prior to application.

Can anti condensation paint be wall papered over? Thanks.


Yes, but be sure to allow Coo-Var Anti-Condensation Paint to thoroughly dry (5 - 7 days @ 20°C) before applying the wallpaper.

questions Alison King on 2018-07-04 18:43:08

I have condensation marks on a wallpapered ceiling. Can I use the product to paint over the wallpaper?


These stains on the wallpaper could be either mould or water staining.

Kill and clean any black mould with a fungicidal wash such as Zinsser Mould Killer & Remover. Allow to dry then prime the surface with Coo-Var Shellac Prime-All, then apply 2 - 3 coats of Coo-Var Anti-Condensation Paint.

questions gary on 2018-02-07 13:26:17

hi, would this be suitable for a steal boat engine room,? will it stand up to oil and grease like bilge paint?


Coo-Var Anti-Condensation Paint is water based and does not contain any anti-corrosive pigments or additives. To apply to steel it would need to be primed first with an anti-corrosive metal primer. If Coo-Var Anti-Condensation Paint was applied after this it could be finally over-coated with Teamac Bilge Paint to get the required oil and grease resistance.

Question: I live in a Cobb constructed cottage with I an area of mould and damp on an exterior wall......being Cobb it is better that the wall breaths so will I be able to use this product, or any similar, and then over paint with a light emulsion?

We would recommend Zinsser AllCoat Exterior Matt for this as it is breathable and has good anti mould properties as well. Treat the mould first then apply 2 coats of the Allcoat.
