Dulux Renovation Range Tiles & Benchtops requires a clean surface to adhere to. All grease and dirt contamination must be removed or the paint will not adhere and will peel or flake off.
On all surfaces cleaning is the most important step. IMPORTANT: Do not use abrasive cleaning detergents.
Repeat this process using clean water, at least twice.
Sand glossy and semi gloss finishes to a dull flat finish using p400 paper before coating.
Use a clean damp cloth to remove any dust.
Allow grout lines to dry for a minimum of 2 hours before painting.
Mask using a good quality painters tape.
Add all of the Additive found underneath the blue lid to the primer first. When finished priming, repeat the process with the topcoat. Stir well for approximately 2-5 minutes with a broad flat paddle, using an up and down scooping action until the additive is completely mixed into the primer or the paint. Once mixed the primer is suitable to use for up to 3 days. The topcoat once mixed is suitable for up to 10 days.
After the additive has been added and stirred, apply Dulux Renovation Range Primer. For full instruction see label.
After the additive has been added and stirred, apply at least two coats of Dulux Renovation Range Tiles & Benchtops ensuring that the previous coat is left for a minimum of 8 hours before recoating.
Cut in as necessary using a 38–50mm high quality angled sash cutter brush.
Coat surface using a 4mm nap 100mm wide microfibre roller.
Lay off. Once each section is coated, gently go over the surface in the same direction with an unloaded roller using minimal pressure. This will give a smooth consistent finish.

It is preferable to use mild detergents to clean the painted surface.
For harder to remove stains and scum try using Selleys® Sugar Soap.
If the stains or scum areas are persistent and remain after the above cleaning is used, then try Selleys® Scum Buster but do not leave on the surface for more that 2-3 minutes before wiping with a clean soft cloth and rinsing well with water.
Do not use scouring pad type cleaners or cleaners that contain abrasives.
Do not use bleach as this can impact on the colour of some of the colourants used in Renovation Range products.
