Ensure surface to be painted is sound, clean, dry and free from grease. Treat any mould or lichen with sterilisation wash as directed. Truguard smooth masonry paint can be applied directly over bare and previously painted surfaces provided these are clean, sound and firm. Chalky, underbound surfaces should be scraped, dry brushed and then given a coat of truguard stabilising masonry primer. Remove any lime wash or distemper completely. Wear a suitable face mask if creating dust. Before applying truguard stabilising masonry primer to the whole surface, first carry out a test application to a small area. If this dries to a glossy film, thin with 1 part of white spirit to two parts of truguard stabilising masonry primer and then test again in another small area. It is important to ensure that a non-glossy, dried, sealed surface is produced.Application Method
Suitable for brush, roller, conventional and airless spray application.Recommended Systems
Stir well before use. Do not thin, except for absorbent surfaces, or when applying by roller or spray when a small quantity of clean water may be added. Apply 2 full coats, allowing 4 to 6 hours between coats under normal drying conditions. Do not apply when air or surface temperatures are below 10°C, or when rain is imminent.Cleaning Up

* Anti-carbonisation is the ability of a coating to resist the ingress of carbon dioxide. Ingress of carbon dioxide can lead to the carbonisation of concrete, the corrosion of steel reinforcement bars and ultimately the deterioration of the concrete through cracking and spalling.
