Step 1 : Surface Preparation
Freshly plastered surfaces must be allowed to cure completely. It is recommended to allow at least 12 weeks as the curing time for new masonry surfaces. Ensure surface is thoroughly clean, dry and free from all loose dirt, chalk, grease, fungi, algae and flaking paint.
Step 2 : Application Process
Application of putty is not recommended. Apply one self- priming coat or one coat of Dulux Promise exterior Primer or Dulux Exterior Acrylic Primer after thinning with water in the ratio of 1:1 by volume. Apply 2-3 coats of Dulux Promise Sheen over the primer coat and allow a drying time of 4-6 hours between the coats. An additional coat should be applied in case of horizontal surfaces like the top of windows, ledges, Chajjas, parapet wall, etc.
Step 3 : Drying Time
Recoating time is up to 6 hours and touch dry is up to 30mins.
