Guide to obtaining the best possible finish for paint and antifouling:
- Fill and sand meticulously to erase any imperfections, aiming at the best practicable surface to provide good adhesion and a smooth, aesthetically pleasing finish
- Ensure that the surface is dry
- Ensure that the surface is clean and particle (dust) free
- Apply in dry, dust free conditions
- Apply by good quality brush or roller according to manufacturer guidance
- Follow the manufacturer instructions on priming coat and the number of finishing coats
- Adhere to the drying/curing time stated on the tin
- Lightly abrade surfaces between coats to improve inter-coat adhesion and to rub away any imperfections - subject to manufacturer recommendation
Meticulous Packaging: The tins are packaged with care, sealed with tape and packed into carboard boxes, padded out with extra packaging material, where required. The zealous sealing and the extra impact protection means that there is very little chance of any leakage. Sometimes, the tins can arrive a little dented, but that doesn't affect the quality of the varnish inside :-)
