Owatrol ESP Easy Surface Prep

Easy Surface Prep or ESP for short. ESP is an easy to use product. This makes it easy for you to be able to paint over any shiny or non-porous surface, using oil or water-based paint. You will no longer have to strip and sand the surfaces, this will save you time and energy. The ESP is a colorless and odorless formula. It will not warp the existing base or other previous coatings that have been applied.

You can use this product directly from the bottle. Simply wipe it on with a cloth, brush or even a roller. Once it has been applied, let it rest for 5 minutes before wiping off the excess product. Wait for at least 2 hours, since this will allow it to fully dry. After the ESP has dried you have up to a week to paint on your shiny surface. If you do not get the time to paint it during that time frame, you can always repeat the process.

There is an endless amount of things that you use the ESP on. Here are a few examples:

  • Repaint all your kitchen cupboard and drawers without spending a small fortune. Using the ESP will also help eliminate the need to strip and sand them, which will save you time.
  • Change up your bathroom tiles, by painting them a new color. This is a cheaper option then re-tiling your bathroom.
  • Refurbish all your old furniture. Doing this is will update your whole living room.

But using Floertol in your paint will make it an easy painting job. Especially since the roller is able to glide more easily across the ceiling. Sadly, this formula is only able to be used with water-based paints.
