System information

Surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned to remove all dirt grease and any surface contaminantion that could affect the adhesion of subsequent coatings. Remove all blistered, poorly adhering or otherwise defective coatings. Any surface defects should be filled with the appropriate Polycell Trade Polyfilla. Spot prime all such exposed areas with Pyroshield Durable Eggshell from Dulux Trade. Ensure surfaces are fully dry before finish coating.

Please note: For any flame retardant system to be successful it is paramount that all previous coatings are stable and firmly adhering to the underlying substrate.

When applying water-based systems to previous coatings that are known, or suspected to be, solvent-based or which exhibit a very glossy or very hard impermeable surface the following preparation is recommended. Thoroughly clean down the surfaces to remove all dirt grease and surface contaminants; whilst wet, to produce the necessary key for good adhesion by rubbing down sound areas with waterproof abrasive paper or pads and feather broken edges of existing coatings. Rinse off and allow to dry. Allow the surface to fully dry before proceeding.

This product can be applied over new work, in which instance a mist coat is advised.
