Surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free of any contamination that may interfere with adhesion. Remove all loose or peeling paint and chalky residue. Sand edges of any remaining paint film until smooth. Ensure the moisture content of the substrate is a maximum of 12% prior to painting. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960 paint surface as they may contain harmful lead. Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding.
New concrete, masonry and other related surfaces must be cured at least 30 days before painting. Remove all existing mould and mildew before painting. To effectively remove mould and mildew, use Blackfriar Fungicidal Wash. Timber at risk from decay or insect attack should be treated with Blackfriar Exterior Wood Preservative Gold Star.
