Instructions - Masonry surfaces


Before treatment

  • The surface must be dry before treatment. The surface to be painted and the air temperature must be at least +5°C and relative humidity below 80% during painting and drying.
  • Always read the instructions on the product label before use.
  • Ensure that you have enough paint from the same batch number to paint the entire surface. The date shown on the side of the can is the batch number.
  • If you are right-handed, begin painting the walls from the right.
  • Protect yourself and any surfaces not being painted from splashes. Immediately remove any paint splashes with clean water.

During treatment

  • Stir products thoroughly both before and during application.

  • If you continue painting the following day, put the paint roller or brush in a plastic bag and seal tightly overnight.

After treatment

  • Temperature and humidity affect drying times.

  • If there is any paint or lacquer left over, put the lid carefully back on the can to form a tight fit. Turn the can upside down for a moment to make the lid airtight. Opened and/or tinted products cannot withstand prolonged storage.

  • Take liquid paint waste to a hazardous waste collection point. Empty or dry cans can be taken to a recycling point or to a public waste disposal site.
