If you are painting new plasterwork, with no mould, your 1st coat may be thinned with water by 10%, so about .5L water to 5L of paint. Or use a less expensive emulsion paint to 1st coat/prime and finish with two coats of Proud® Anti Mould Paint.

During preparation, avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask, if dry sanding. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960’s surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead. For further advice, please contact Proud® Paints Limited.
