Once complete reconnect the tank inlets. *15 YEAR GUARANTEE Dulux guarantees that Roof & Trim will not PEEL, FLAKE or BLISTER for 15 years on metal roofs, timber and masonry, provided it is applied on properly prepared surfaces as per the label directions.

Surface preparation

PREVIOUSLY PAINTED GALVANISED IRON Occasionally an apparently sound old paint will lose adhesion when recoated, particularly if the new paint is darker in colour. To avoid this, check the adhesion of the old paint by cutting an 'X' through a clean area of the film with a sharp knife, press cellulose tape firmly across the cut and rip it off. If the old paint comes off with the tape it should be removed before repainting. Remove dust, grease, and any loose or flaking paint by scrubbing with a solution of Dulux House Wash using a stiff bristle brush (not a wire brush). Rinse with water and allow to dry. Apply 1 coat of Dulux All Metal Primer to any bare surfaces. Remove any red rust with a wire brush and spot prime with Dulux All Metal Primer.

UNPAINTED GALVANISED IRON, ROOFING, DOWNPIPES &: GUTTERING (ZINCALUME®:) Wash with a solution of Dulux House Wash using a stiff bristle brush (not a wire brush). Rinse with water and allow to dry. Remove any red rust with a wire brush and spot prime with Dulux All Metal Primer. Galvanised iron must not be left to weather, particularly in salt or chemical areas. For best results, especially in coastal or geothermal areas, the application of 1 coat of Dulux All Metal Primer is recommended.

CONCRETE TILES Glazed concrete tiles cannot be coated with a decorative paint system. Remove all dirt, chalk, lichen and moss using a high pressure water blaster. Wash with a bleach solution where necessary. Ensure that cement used in jointing is in a sound condition.

TIMBER FASCIAS INCLUDING PRE-PRIMED TIMBER Test previously painted surfaces. Sand all dressed timber. All grey timber must be removed by sanding prior to painting. Remove dust before painting. Apply 1 coat of Dulux 1 Step® Prep Primer Sealer Undercoat.

BRICK, MASONRY, FIBRO &: FIBRE CEMENT BOARD Unpainted masonry surfaces should be cured for 28 days before painting. Ensure surface is sound and clear of any loose sand orcement. Fill holes with a grouting cement. Wash down with water using a stiff brush to remove all loose material. To remove any efflorescence (white salts) wipe down with a 5% solution of acetic acid (white vinegar). Hose down and allow to dry. Wash with a bleach solution and/or demossing chemical to remove mould, or moss. The hose down. Apply 1 coat of Dulux Prep Acrylic Primer Sealer Undercoat.

STEEL/WROUGHT IRON Remove all rust by scraping, sanding or wire brushing. Apply 2 coats of Dulux All Metal Primer.

PLASTIC SPOUTING &: DOWNPIPES Sand all surfaces and dust off.
