Dulux Professional Acousticoat is a specialist paint coating that has been designed for a specific purpose. Due to its specialist nature, it has to be applied correctly to achieve the desired finish and performance. Best results are obtained when the coating is applied as detailed below.
After completing the preparation work, you can now apply the . We recommend applying with an airless spray gun using a 515 tip at 1500-2000 psi, or until “spray tails” are gone. The lower the pressure the less overspray.
Best results* are achieved when it is treated as a “mist” coat, with a 50% overlap and the product is applied in a quick motion keeping the tip greater than 60cm from the ceiling tile surface, making sure the ceiling gets one even coat. If flashing occurs after the ceiling dries, then the coating was applied improperly, with the film build not even over the whole ceiling.
Allow any overspray to settle (approx. 10-15 min after spraying), then begin unmasking fittings/fixtures. Care should be taken when unmasking walls to ensure that the plastic is bundled carefully to contain all dust that has been generated during the application process.
Any used film, masking tape and overspray dust should then be discarded. Prior to using the painted area, it is recommended to dust all areas down carefully and vacuum up any dirt or debris.
* If product is applied too slowly, the painted surface can look patchy and inconsistent due to the porosity of the substrate.
