Surface preparation for New Work: Surfaces must be clean and dry before painting. Dust down bare wallboards and interior timber. New concrete and cement render must be allowed to cure for 28 days before painting. Weathered timber must be sanded back to a sound surface.
Remove all loose and flaking paint. Sand to feather edges before painting. Remove surface chalk and powder, dirt, oil and grease. Spot bare areas with Taubmans 3-in-1 before applying a full coat. Do not use 3-in-1 on set plaster, fibrous plaster or plaster glass.
