Product Description

Wallpaper Cover-Up is an all-in-one primer, sealer and stain blocker. A high hiding primer that obliterates wallpaper print with a smooth matt off-white finish. Can be used under any coloured emulsion. Wallpaper Cover Up can be applied by either brush or roller (for best results use a short pile mohair or microfibre roller).Unlike a regular emulsion which can cause wallpaper to bubble and blister, Wallpaper Cover Up seals the wallpaper protecting it from the moisture in the paint and once dry, this one-coat system creates a new surface thats easy to paint.Application - Stir thoroughly before use. Apply when temperature is between 10-30oC to ensure proper drying. Best results are achieved by roller application - Use a short pile (up to 5mm) mohair or microfibre roller. Apply evenly and avoid overspreading. If applying by brush, load generously and avoid overspreading. For very dark wallpapers or those which have a contrasting print, obliteration can be improved by using a wet on wet rollering technique. 15-30 minutes after application, roll over the applied surface again using a lightly loaded roller.Coverage - 5 - 8m2 per Litre. Uneven surfaces or a thicker coat will reduce coverage.Drying Times - Touch dry within 2 - 4 hours. Allow a minimum of 4 hours before over painting with a good quality wall paint.
