Environment

  • Do not pour unwanted paint down the drain.
  • Keep unwanted paint in sealed containers for disposal via special chemical waste collections.
  • Empty paint containers should be left open in a well ventilated area to dry out. When dry, recycle steel containers via can recycling programs.
  • Disposal of empty paint containers via domestic recycling programs may differ between local authorities. Check with your local council first.

Preparation

Correct surface preparation is critical to the success of the painting project. It is essential that the following steps are taken:

  • Clean the surface thoroughly with an abrasive cleaning product to remove all transparent body fats and soap deposits on the tub's surface.  Pay special attention to the edges against the wall, around taps, plug hole, handles etc.
  • Rinse off with clean warm water.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to ensure all build up is removed from the surface.
  • Sand the entire surface thoroughly to remove all shine. Use a fine grade of wet and dry abrasive paper (240 - 320 grit) and pay special attention to difficult to reach areas. Sand or grind any rust spots back to clean metal.
  • Rinse thoroughly with clean, warm water and allow to dry.
  • Clean the surface with White Knight Rust Guard Solvent to remove all traces of dirt, grit and other contaminants and allow to dry.
  • Cover taps with plastic bags and seal with rubber band to prevent water from leaking during application.
  • Stir contents of both A and B tins separately with a flat paddle.
  • Pour the contents of both cans A and B into a metal or solvent resistant container and stir well until completely mixed (approximately 5 minutes).
  • Divide mixture in half by pouring into 2 separate metal or solvent resistant containers (one half for each coat).
  • Immediately seal both containers tightly.
  • Place one half in the refrigerator (between 0° - 4°) and allow the other half to stand for 1 hour at room temperature before use.

Application

  1. Stir thoroughly with a broad flat stirrer in a circular lifting motion for at least 5 minutes before use and continue to stir at regular intervals during application.
  2. No thinning is required for application by brush. If spraying you may thin up to 10% with Rust Guard Solvent.
  3. Apply 1 coat by brush or spray gun. Start around the edges using a pure bristle brush. Continue down to base of the surface being painted in a slightly spiral fashion with a brush or spray gun.
  4. Apply a second coat between 12 and 36 hours after first coat application using the remaining refrigerated mixture (mixed product will remain useable for up to 36 hours when kept refrigerated). Allow mixture stand for 1 hour at temperature before use.
  5. Apply second coat following Application steps 1 and 2. When painting over contrasting colours additional coats may be necessary.
  6. Remove plastic bags when the surface is completely dry.
  7. For best results, allow a minimum of 5 days warm weather drying before using painted item.

Do not use when air or surface temperature is below 20°C or above 30°C or in excessive humidity.

Coverage

Approximately 12m² per litre.

Spread rate will be lower on rough or absorbent surfaces. The total mixed quantity of this pack is suitable for the coverage of one standard bath tub with two coats.

Drying

Hints and Tips
  • If the surface is not prepared properly, poor adhesion will result and paint will flake off.
  • If the surface is not sanded thoroughly the product will not bond to the surface.
  • Ensure surface is dry - trapped moisture under White Knight Tub 'n Tile can cause blistering.
  • Use a drop sheet to cover objects from overspray. Overspray can travel long distances so make sure you cover a wide area.
  • Use masking tape or newspaper to prevent paint from going on areas you don't want it to.
  • Have lots of rags handy for any cleaning.
