Francesca’s Eco Emulsion is the most ecological of our emulsions. It is water-based and completely breathable. It is for use on interior walls and ceilings with a chalky, velvety finish. Francesca’s Eco Emulsion is free from solvents and all their components. It is ideal to cover most wall surfaces around the house because of its low impact on our health and the environment. It has excellent coverage and is perfumed with a citrus fragrance. Francesca’s Eco Emulsion is gently wipeable (absorbent stains will stay) and water resistant. It is not scrubbable and cannot be touched up. It is the best emulsion to use in a bathroom because of its breathability and water resistance. Some of our darkest colours are not available in the Eco Emulsion because of the nature of the ecological base of the paint. PLASTIC FREE
Before application, surfaces must be cleared of loose material, grease and oil.
VERY IMPORTANT: OVER UNPAINTED SURFACES THERE IS NO NEED TO MIST COAT THE WALL, APPLY THE ECO EMULSION DIRECTLY ON THE WALL FOLLOWING INFO BELOW. OR MIST COAT USING OUR ECO EMULSION DILUTED WITH 40-50% OF WATER.
Over unpainted internal walls: apply one coat of Ecofix diluted with 4 part of water to 1 of Ecofix ONLY if the wall is powdery to the touch.
Over previously painted walls: if the paint is flaking remove as much old paint as possible by dampening the wall down and scraping it. Remember that the paint must be applied on a dry surface.
Francesca’s Eco Fix is to be used on cement render, powdery plastered walls, concrete and LIME PLASTER
Francesca’s Eco Emulsion can be applied by brush, roller and spray gun. Paint within reach. DON’T OUTLINE FIRST AND FILL IN AFTER, OTHERWISE A LINE WILL SHOW. Leave at least 6 hours before applying second coat. FOR MEDIUM / DARK COLOURS WAIT 24 HOURS TO APPLY SECOND COAT. Do not apply in temperatures below 5C or over 30C. Avoid retouching the final coat.
1st coat: dilute with 30% of water / 2nd coat: dilute with 25% of water (light colours)
1st coat: dilute with 10% of water/ 2nd coat: dilute with 5% of water (medium/dark colours)
1 litre covers approximately 12 square meters per coat depending on the porosity of surface
Remove as much product as possible from application equipment before washing. Wash tools immediately after use in warm soapy water and rinse thoroughly. Do not empty product in to drains or watercourses.
Colour variation can occur between batches due to the natural pigments used, therefore, it is recommended that all Francesca’s Eco Emulsion be purchased at the same time. Keep the lid tightly on. Keep out of reach of children. Do not swallow and avoid eye contact. If accidental contact occurs, rinse eyes with copious amounts of water. WHEN USING MORE THAN ONE TIN COLOUR IN THE SAME ROOM, INTERMIX BEFORE USE
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.
