Surface Preparation Guide for Plascon Suede
Before using Plascon Suede paint, ensure that surfaces are dry, sound and free from dust, dirt, grease and oil before painting.
1. New Work:
1.1 Cement plaster, concrete, fibre-cement, ceiling boards, gypsum plaster (e.g. Rhinolite, Cretestone): Remove any loose particles and laitance by most suitable means. Prime with PLASCON PLASTER PRIMER.
N.B. Soft, underbound, friable and highly porous surfaces must be restored to a sound condition before painting with BONDING LIQUID or PLASCON PLASTER PRIMER or by re-plastering.
N.B. If a gypsum plaster has been used as the joint skimming filler on gypsum board or dry wall partitioning, then these areas must be sealed with PLASCON PLASTER PRIMER.
2. Previously Paint Surfaces:
2.1 Previously painted surfaces in sound condition: Remove loose and flaking paint back to a sound substrate and a firm edge by scraping and sanding. Spot prime bare areas with appropriate primer. Clean with SUGAR SOAP POWDER CLEANER solution to remove all contaminants. Rinse with clean water to remove all traces of SUGAR SOAP. Sand glossy enamel surfaces to a matt finish and apply one coat of PLASCON UNIVERSAL UNDERCOAT (UC 1).
2.2 Previously painted surfaces in poor condition: Completely remove paint by suitable means or by using the appropriate REMOVALL COATINGS REMOVER and treat as for new work.
Fill all imperfections with MENDALL 90 ALL PURPOSE ADHESIVE FILLER or POLYFILLA INTERIOR CRACK FILLER and spot prime filled areas with PLASCON PLASTER PRIMER.
