Adequate surface preparation should be carried out before application. All loose, flaking, chalking or friable materials should be removed. Make good any defects and ensure that the substrate is clean and free from contaminants, such as oil, grease, grime and fungal growth.
For new surfaces, ensure that the substrate is sufficiently dry (below 16% moisture) prior to paint application.
For redecoration, ensure that the previous coating is in good condition, otherwise remove via water-jet and/or scraping then treat as per new surface.
New Surface or Redecoration
|Finish||2 – 3 coats of Sissons Vinyl Asbestocote|
|Theoretical Coverage||Up to 12.9 square meters per litre per coat|
|Expected Practical Coverage
Based on 25% Loss Factor
|Up to 9.7 square meters per litre per coat|
Actual spreading rate will vary due to factors such as method and condition of application e.g. surface profile or roughness.
Brush, Roller, Conventional Spray
|Brush / Roller||For best performance, no dilution is recommended. However, the paint may be diluted with up to 10% of water for the first coat in order to assist application on highly porous or absorbent surfaces.|
|Conventional Spray||Dilute with up to 20% of water depending on the substrate and required finishing.|
|Touch Dry||Below ¾ hour|
|Hard Dry||Below 1½ hours|
|Recoating Time||After 2 hours|
Clean all equipment with clean water immediately after use.
