Painting Interior Metalwork - Learn Now | Edward Bulmer Natural Paint

 

Ferrous metals can be painted with our new Water based Eggshell which comes in a satin (30% sheen) and gloss (80% sheen) finish.

Priming

We recommend that you prime all new radiators with our water based primer.  This is a white coat which is easy to apply and dries quickley.  If the radiator has already been painted, we recommend that you sand down and wipe clean.  Our paint can be applied on top of most old paints, however if a gloss paint has been used you might need to test an area for adhesion.  If the paint does not stick immediately then a primer will be required.

Painting

Thoroughly stir and apply 2 coats evenly working in the direction of the grain, using a synthetic or mixed-fibre brush or fine-pored/short pile roller. May be thinned if necessary with up to 20% water. Sand lightly and remove dust between coats. 

Also suitable for spraying but please consult our technical sheets for precise instructions.

Drying 

Touch dry after approximately 2 hours, recoatable after 6 hours. Handle with care until completely dry and protect from dust.

Too thick application, high humidity and low temperatures significantly delay the drying process. Drying is a process of oxygen uptake, ensure good ventilation during the drying period.
