  • If final coat is one of the high quality Duracoat emulsions, it will be necessary to thoroughly dust off sanding residue before applying the Emulsion Finish.
  • If final coat is one of the high quality Duracoat glosses then one coat of Duracoat Universal Undercoat will be mandatory after thoroughly dusting off the sanded Duracoat Smotex Ultimate Smooth Finish.

New and old cement plaster surfaces: Surface must be dry and free of loose material. Apply appropriate primer first. Apply one coat of Duracoat Smotex Utimate Smooth Finish on all joints and about 200 mm on each side of joint. Allow to dry hard and smoothen with sandpaper. If joint too wide on plaster boards, fix with fiberglass scrim. Apply two coats of Duracoat Smotex Ultimate Smooth Finish, leveling out to smooth surface or desired hard pattern on final coat ready for decoration allowing hard drying in between coats.

Block-boards, ceiling-boards, hard and soft wood surfaces: Surface must be appropriately primed with Duracoat Wood Primer, Duracoat Vinyl Matt or Duracoat Superfast Emulsion to satisfy the high absorbance. Follow the same procedure as in cement plaster surfaces above.

Brick and asbestos surfaces: Same procedure as in cement plaster surfaces.
