Remove loose or flaking material. Make sure the surface is clean (no dirt or grease) and dry.


If new, bare and absorbent surface, seal with this product, thinned 10% with water, or if very porous, use Dulux Sealer for Plaster. If the wall is damaged, repair using the appropriate Polycell product.


Drying time: 4 hours


Stir to ensure paint is completely mixed. Lightly dampen a roller with water before application


Leave 4 hours to dry.


Apply a thick, even coat using a medium pile roller, first using a brush for edging. Load roller evenly and generously, ensuring paint is not spread across more than 0.5m2 per roller load. If areas have been missed during application, these may be touched up rather than overcoating the whole area as the paint will dry to match the original coat. Leave a minimum of 4 hours before touch up. Failure to apply correctly may result in a second coat being required, particularly if overpainting a darker colour with a lighter topcoat. Do not apply in very damp or humid conditions or in extreme temperatures.



Remove paint from the brush or roller with a cloth and then wash with water.


Store paint in dry conditions and protect from extreme temperatures.
