Surfaces must be sound, clean, dry and free from all loose and flaking materials, dirt, grease or other surface contaminants. Rub down previously painted surfaces with a fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly. Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding. New or bare surfaces should be coated with a mist coat of Johnstone’s Flame Retardant Durable Matt, thinned with up to 10% clean water. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960’s paint surfaces, as they may contain harmful lead.

Stir thoroughly before use. Apply two coats by brush, roller or spray as required. For spray applications, thinning may be required. Airless Spray = 017-019 thou tip, 200 bar (2000-3000 psi). An additional coat may be required if thinning to meet the required film build for the flame testing.
