Technical Data - Rust-Oleum Guardian Wall Paint 


Preparation: For best results ensure surfaces are clean and free from dirt, mould and mildew and any surface contamination. Remove any loose, flaking paint back to a firm, smooth edge. Fill any cracks or defects with a proprietary filler in accordance with manufacturers instructions. Clean the surface well with a suitable detergent where required, rinse well to remove any detergent residues and allow the surface to dry. Treat any mould or mildew with a proprietary mould killer and remover in accordance with the manufacturers instructions. Allow the surface to dry thoroughly before applying the paint. Previously painted and light porous substrates can be coated directly with Rust-Oleum Guardian Wall Paint. Very porous surfaces should be appropriately sealed prior to application of Rust-Oleum Guardian Wall Paint. Rust-Oleum Guardian Wall Paint is not a stain blocking product. If necessary, prime with a suitable stain blocker as appropriate.

Application: Stir thoroughly prior to use. The product may be applied by brush or medium pile roller. For optimum results two coats are required.

Coverage: Up to 14m²/L per coat. Coverage may vary depending upon application method, rate of application and porosity of the surface.

Drying Time: Touch dry in 1 hour. Hard dry in 4 hours. May be over coated after 4 hours.

Clean Up: Remove as much product as possible from application equipment before washing with water. Do not empty into drains or water courses. Some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings.

Limitations: For interior use only. Temperature at time of the application and during drying should be greater than 10°C. To ensure paint suitability for your particular project test on a small inconspicuous area first. Remove any stains promptly, using a soft cloth and warm soapy water. Do not use on floors, areas subjected to foot traffic or surfaces that will be immersed in water.

Easy-Clean: Use a soft cloth and warm soapy water. Do not use scourers or abrasive cleaners as these may mark the paint finish.
