Application

AEROSOL APPLICATION: 

BEFORE SPRAYING

  • Shake can vigorously for 1 minute to ensure colour uniformity. Shake can occasionally during use.
  • Remove cap carefully. Avoid using sharp objects that may puncture the can.
  • Test spray on a small inconspicuous area to ensure surface compatibility and finish suitability.

SPRAYING

  • Select the nozzle setting: The horizontal setting should be used when spraying up and down and the vertical setting should be used when spraying across. To change the nozzle setting, turn the red section on the nozzle.
  • Hold the can upright approximately 20cm from the surface.
  • Press button firmly and spray with a smooth sweeping motion, overlapping each spray pass. To prevent paint from sagging, avoid spraying too close to the surface or applying a heavy coat.
  • Repeat if necessary.
  • When dry, leave 24 hours before using the surface.
  • Condition the chalkboard prior to use by rubbing the side of a piece of chalk evenly over the entire surface then wipe off with duster.

Do not use when air or surface temperature is below 15°C or above 30°C or in excessive humidity. 

BRUSH ON APPLICATION

Hints and Tips
  • To remove a child proof cap insert a screwdriver in the cap and lever it up.
  • Paint will not adhere to glossy or dirty surfaces.
  • Use a drop sheet to cover objects from overspray. Overspray can travel long distances so make sure you cover a wide area.
  • When spraying, spray across object, starting and finishing off to the side. It is better to spray a few light coats than one heavy coat.
  • Practice makes perfect. Do a test piece first on cardboard to get the feeling.
  • Use masking tape or newspaper to prevent paint from going on areas you don't want it to.
  • Have lots of rags handy for any cleaning.
  • Can be used on many types of interior surfaces where a flat finish is required.
  • Ideal for use on table tennis tops.
