    Preparation

    To get the best results, ensure surfaces to be painted are sound, clean and dry (new surfaces particularly must be fully dry) and free from all defective or poorly adhering material such as dirt, grease or wax.

    Thoroughly rub down previously painted surfaces, using ‘wet flatting’ methods where possible, then wipe off with a damp, lint free cloth. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.

    Treat any knots in wood with an appropriate knotting solution. Any surface defects should be filled with the appropriate filler. Prime any bare metal with 1 coat of Dulux Trade Metal Primer. When painting areas such as plastic rainwater goods, Weathershield Quick Drying Exterior Gloss can be used. Apply 1 coat of Weathershield Quick Drying Exterior Gloss thinned to 1 part water to 10 parts paint direct to the surface.

    New Joinery - this is often factory primed using a stain basecoat, also known as a dual-purpose primer. These materials quickly erode when left exposed and may need to be re-primed.


    Application

    Brush only. Do not spray. Do not use on heated surfaces, in temperatures below 10ºC or outside when rain is likely.

    New or bare surfaces: Prime all bare wood with 2 coats of Weathershield Preservative Primer+ (BP) followed by 2 coats of Weathershield Quick Dry Exterior Undercoat.

    Previously painted surfaces: 1 coat of Weathershield Quick Dry Exterior Undercoat.

    Allow to dry for at least 2 hours between coats, then apply the appropriate Weathershield topcoat, Gloss or Satin.

    Aftercare & Storage
    Store in a dry place away from extremes of temperature and frost. Keep the lid firmly closed and store and transport in a upright position.
    FAQ's

    Q. Why does Dulux Trade Weathershield Quick Dry Exterior Flexible Undercoat need to be flexible?

    A. The flexible formulation of this undercoat allows it to accommodate the natural expansion and contraction of the surfaces it is applied to. This is particularly important for exterior applications, as materials such as wood, metal, and masonry can expand and contract with changes in temperature and humidity. The flexible undercoat helps to minimize the risk of paint film cracking and ensures a smooth, even finish.

    Q. Why is this undercoat formulated to be quick drying?

    A. As the name suggests, this undercoat dries quickly, allowing you to complete your painting project in a shorter time frame. This is especially beneficial when working outdoors, as you can minimize the risk of dust, debris, or insects sticking to the wet paint surface.
