Can I use Dulux Renovation Range in an alfresco or undercover outside kitchen area?
Yes, provided that the area where Renovation Range is intended to be used on is covered and will not be subjected to direct rain and weather. The Renovation Range products are based on UV resistant and water-resistant resins. As such they are capable of resisting undercover outside exposure.
What types of benchtops can be coated – is it just laminate?
Typically, benchtops in the kitchens, bathrooms and laundries we expect Renovation Range to be used on benchtops made from laminate. However, if they are made from tiles or natural stone – other than marble – they can be coated.
Given there is a lot of wear & tear on benchtops, how does Dulux Renovation Range withstand abrasion, scratching etc.?
The Renovation Range products are NOT scratch proof but have good wear character that develops over a period of days.
It is important not to use knives or other instruments to cut, smash or otherwise impact the surface during preparation of food. These activities should always be done on a separate cutting board or similar.
Where possible, “lift and locate” heavy items on benchtops coated with Renovation Range to avoid pushing them across the surface and potentially causing a scratch.
How do I finish around stoves, dishwashers, sinks and other appliances?
Mask stoves, dishwashers and other appliances with smooth painter’s tape. Be diligent about pressing in the edge to ensure none of the coating will bleed through. Place drop cloths over surfaces not to be coated especially floors.
