All surfaces should be clean, dry and free from grease. Remove any loose or flaking paint from the surface and treat any mould or lichen with a fungicidal wash as directed. Sand smooth natural planed wood and wipe clean with white spirit to remove any natural oils or resins and allow to dry. Rub down bare timber and glossy surfaces with a fine waterproof abrasive paper. Prime metal surfaces with an appropriate primer before applying this, and avoid inhalation of dust & other substances when priming any surface.
Stir well before use and apply by brush or roller to either the wooden or metal surface. Apply a liberal coat of Johnstone's Exterior Gloss to the surface and paint in one smooth motion in one direction to achieve the best results.
Depending on the nature & porosity of the surface, allow 16 to 24 hours drying between coats under normal conditions.
- Touch dry: Within 12 Hours
- Completely dry: Within 24 Hours
Remove as much product as possible from application equipment before cleaning. Clean all equipment immediately after use white spirit or turpentine substitute and rinse thoroughly to remove all paint from applicators.
750ml of Johnstone's Gloss will cover approximately 11m² depending on the nature & porosity of the surface.
Replace lid onto the tin firmly and store in cool dry conditions between + 5°C and +25°C. Storage outside these conditions will dramatically reduce shelf life and may affect the product itself.
