Tips & Advice
Preparing the Surfaces
To get the best results, ensure surfaces to be varnished are sound, clean and dry. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead. Remove all loose and defective coatings (e.g. varnishes and woodstains). Paint should be stripped back to bare wood. Thoroughly rub down all new, bare and previously stained or varnished surfaces that are in good condition along the grain of the wood to provide a key. Remove dust with a damp, lint free cloth. New or bare wood should be sealed with a coat of Dulux Clear Varnish Gloss, thinned with 1 part white spirit to 10 parts varnish, even when finishing with matt or satin finish.
After use, remove as much product as possible from equipment before cleaning with white spirit
Do not use or store in extremes of temperature and protect from frost. To prevent spillage, please store and transport upright
Do you know the area?
Enter the height and the length of the surface you want to paint.
Great! Just add it below and find out how much you'll need.
Measure the height and length of the surface you want to paint (metres).
This is an estimate based on coats. Actual coverage will depend on the conditions of the surface. If the colour change is strong, more coats may be required.Calculate again
