Step 1 : Surface Preparation
Ensure that the surface is clean, dry, free from all loose particles, paint film, dust, dirt, mould, fungal growth etc. before application. Proper surface preparation is required to achieve desired sheen and finish.
Step 2 : Application Process
Prime surface with a coat of Dulux water-based cement Primer or Interior Acrylic Primer and dry for 4-6 hrs. Smoothen the surface by filling dents with thin coats of any suitable putty. Allow drying for 6-8 hours. Sand with Emery paper 180 and wipe clean. Stir thoroughly before use. Apply 2-3 coats of Dulux Promise Sheen Interior and allow a drying time of 4-6 hours between the coats. Normally two coats of paint are enough for opacity and the desired finish.
Step 3 : Drying Time
Drying time may vary according to temperature and humidity. For instance, drying time will be significantly longer in cool and humid conditions.
