Step 1: Surface Preparation
Ensure surface is thoroughly clean, dry and free from all loose dirt, chalk, grease, fungi, algae and flaking paint. Wet sanding should be used wherever possible. If exposure cannot be avoided by the provision of local exhaust ventilation, suitable respiratory protective equipment should be used.

Step 3 : Drying Time
Apply 2 coats of Dulux Promise Exterior Acrylic Emulsion with a gap of 4-6 hours between the coats. 3 coats may be required for darker colors. An additional coat should be applied in case of horizontal surfaces like the top of windows, ledges, Chajjas, parapet wall, etc.
