a) All undercoats must be thoroughly dry and lightly rubbed down with sand/floor paper before application of the first coat of Warrior Eggshell Enamel.

b) Ensure that each coat of paint is thoroughly dry and lightly rubbed down with sand/floor paper before the appli­cation of the subsequent coat.

c) It is impor­tant that this product be thoroughly mixed with a flat paddle before use.

d) Apply in blocks of 1,5 m² ensuring that the paint is applied from the ceiling to halfway down to the floor and then from the halfway position down to the floor. Ensure that the paint on the top half is not “touch” dry, but must be wet (i.e. it must not be tacky) when applying the paint to the bottom half of the surface being painted. Where the coats overlap or join always ensure that it blends evenly.

e) If allowed to “touch” dry, coarse matt patches will appear when the wet coats overlap the recently dried paint.

f) The whole panel of the wall or surface must be painted in one session without a break, so that the abovementioned overlapping problem does not occur.
