Preparation of Surface:
New surfaces: Ensure that all dust, dirt and foreign matter are scraped and brushed away. Also ensure the surfaces are free from salts, oil, grease and ridges. Protect all adjacent surfaces not to be covered. All cracks, chips, voids and damages should be repaired with Terraco Handycoat Fine / Handycoat Stucco Putty (for interiors) / Handycoat Exterior (for exteriors)
Old surfaces: Before applying to old surfaces, ensure the substrate is firm. First wash down the surface with a sugar soap solution, rinse and allow to dry before repairing or applying the primer.
Dusty and flaking surfaces should be primed with Terraco Penetrating Primer.
Application and cleaning of tools
Very porous substrates should be filled and may require a diluted first coat. Apply the coating by brush, roller or spray in 2 -3 coats allowing 2 -4 hours drying time between coats. The application operation should be continuous in order to avoid dry edges; therefore plan the application work accordingly.
