To get the best results with Dulux Trade Undercoat, make sure surfaces to be painted are sound, clean and dry (new surfaces particularly must be fully dry).
Apply 1 coat of Dulux Trade Undercoat, followed by 1 or 2 coats of Dulux Trade High Gloss. Allow a minimum of 6 to 16 hours for the undercoat to dry before applying the gloss finish. Where a second coat of Dulux Trade High Gloss is required, allow a minimum of 16 hours between coats.
After use, remove as much paint as possible from brushes before cleaning with white spirit.
Note : Whilst leading-edge technology has been used in the development of this product, the nature of solvent-based paints means that they will all discolour over time. The rate of discolouration is faster in areas with no natural or UV light. For long-lasting whiteness, we recommend the use of a water-based formulation such as Dulux Trade Ecosure Water-Based Gloss.
