SKU: 400841
£21.00 per L

Product Description

B-I-N is the ultimate shellac-based primer, sealer and stain killer. It is perfect for interior ceilings, walls, doors and related paintable surfaces and spot priming on exterior metal, trims, PVC and wood. B-I-N permanently blocks every kind of odour (from smoke and fire damage to odours from pets and nicotine). Its dried film is non-toxic and hypo-allergenic, it may be used in areas where incidental contact with food items occur.

Application - Shake or stir before using. Eliminate all sources of ignition. Apply with a natural or synthetic bristle brush, roller or sprayer. Follow manufacturers instructions when using spray equipment. DO NOT THIN. If B-I-N thickens in the container due to solvent evaporation, add a small amount of methylated spirit. When spraying, dilute with methylated spirit up to 2% - refer to technical data sheet. Apply when air and surface temperature is between -18C to 32C, relative humidity is less than 85% and surface temperature is 9C above the dew point.

Coverage - 12.5 m2 per litre. Coverage may vary depending upon method of application and surface porosity.

Drying Time - At normal temperatures B-I-N will dry to touch in 15 minutes and can be recoated in 45 minutes. Paint spot-primed exterior surfaces after they dry. Lower temperatures, higher humidity, and the addition of tint will prolong dry and cure time of the product.
