Acrylic Eggshell Paint

THE PRODUCT
Francesca’s Acrylic Eggshell is made from tough acrylic resin and it is suitable for wall and ceiling surfaces in most interior situations and woodwork. Its low odour properties combined with ease of application and speed of drying allow the work to be completed with a minimum of disruption. It gives a mid-sheen finish. It is wipeable and it comes in all our colours.

TYPE OF SUBSTRATE
Wood, metal and plaster. Also suitable for use on wallboards, concrete, cement rendering, brickwork and block work in internal situations.

COVERAGE
1 litre will cover approximately 12 square metres, depending on the nature and porosity of the surface. When using more than one tin of a colour in the same room, intermix before use.

DRYING TIME & VOC CONTENT
Touch dry in 1-2 hours. Recoatable after 3-4 hours. Clean with water. LOW VOC CONTENT 0.3-7.99% VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) contribute to atmospheric pollution. This product contains max 30 g/l VOC.

PREPARATION
Ensure surface to be painted is clean, dry and free from grease. Wear a suitable face mask when dry sanding. Remove all loose and defective paint. Rub down previously painted surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive to provide a good key. Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding. Prime where required with appropriate Primer. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.

APPLICATION
Stir well before use. On absorbent surfaces, the first coat should be thinned when necessary to ease application, taking care not to over-thin. Suitable for application by brush, roller or spray. Apply two full coats, allowing 3-4 hours between coats under normal conditions. On certain surfaces a third coat may be necessary. For spray application, thin with clean water as required, using up to approximately 0.5 litres of water to 5 litres of paint. Do not apply when air or surface temperature is below 10˚C. Conditions of high humidity can prolong the drying time.

CLEANING
Remove as much product as possible from application equipment before cleaning. Clean equipment immediately after use in warm, soapy water and rinse thoroughly. Some local authorities have special facilities for disposal of waste coatings. Do not empty product into drains or watercourses. Replace lid firmly. Keep out of the reach of children.


 IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE ALL START CONSCIOUSLY RECYCLING AND ARE CONSIDERATE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT. WE USE PLASTIC BUCKETS FOR ALL OUR WATER BASED PAINTS, BECAUSE THEY ARE EASIER TO CLEAN THAN TINS AND THEY CAN BE REUSED. THEY ARE MADE WITH RECYCLABLE PLASTIC. ONCE THE PAINT IS FINISHED, PLEASE WASH IT OUT AND RECYCLE THE BUCKET ACCORDINGLY.  THANK YOU

WE SEND OUR SAMPLE POTS AND PAINTS IN RECYCLED BOXES.
