Description

Description

Watco Moisture Guard is a high performance, water based, acrylic paint designed to enhance and protect interior surfaces.

Application

Application

Surface preparation

Remove any dust, dirt, or grease from the surface. Watco Bio-D can be used to remove grease and oil from painted surfaces. If painting over an existing coating, abrade to remove any loose paint. Check the remaining paint is well bonded. Ensure the surface is completely dry before painting, moisture content of the substrate should be below 16%. 

Remove any mould or mildew from the surface. If you are concerned about concerned about mould and mildew behind walls, underneath flooring, in ventilation systems or other unseen areas, contact a professional who specialises in mould and mildew remediation. For commercial buildings and schools follow appropriate guidelines for mould removal.

Application

Mix well before applying the paint with a brush or roller. The coating will dry in approximately 30 minutes. Apply a second coat after 2 hours. Best results will be achieved when the air and surface temperature is between 10°C and 32°C and humidity is less than 80%. 

If using above tile on shower walls, wait at least 24 hours before using the shower. Do not scrub the new coating for seven days.
