Johnstone’s Trade Acrylic Durable Matt is for use on interior walls and woodwork, including surfaces susceptible to condensation. The Non-yellowing smooth appearance is harder and, therefore easier to clean than conventional emulsions. A fast drying, low odour alternative to traditional eggshell, it is ideał for use where minimum disruption is important.
All surfaces should be sound, clean, dry and free from grease. Remove any crazed or flaking paint. Rub down sound glossy surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly. Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding. Special precautions should be taken during the preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as
they may contain harmful lead. Seal absorbent surfaces with a solution of up to 1 part water to 4 parts Johnstone’s Trade Acrylic Durable Matt. Prime
bare timber and metal surfaces with an appropriate Johnstone’s Trade primer. Allow all radiators to cool before painting.
Johnstone’s Trade Acrylic Durable Matt will cover approximately 11-13 square metres per litre depending on the nature and porosity of the surface.
Touch dry in 1-2 hours. Allow 4 hours before applying a second coat if required. Do not apply when air or surface temperature is below 10°c or in damp conditions.
