We recommend cleaning the paint roller with lukewarm water and a little detergent. First, wash out the paint roller and then rinse the paint roller’s tank.

If necessary, the paint should be diluted up to approx. 10%.

For detailed information, please refer to the paint manufacturer’s technical data sheet (available online).

In order to achieve the optimal coating of surfaces, they must be clean. All dirt, dust, oil, water, etc. should be removed.

  1. When you prepare a room for spraying, remove the ceiling rose, light switches and sockets. ATTENTION: Disconnect the power supply first. 
  2. To attach the cover to the ceiling, use masking tape, which you apply every few metres. 
  3. Protect the floor and skirting boards with plastic sheets and fix this in place with masking tape.
  4. Cover all doors, windows or radiators with a plastic sheet.
  5. Use masking tape to attach the sheet to both sides of the door or window.
  6. Spray the ceiling first, then the corners and finally the walls.
  7. Remove the tape before the paint dries completely (slowly peel off the tape). We recommend the Universal Extra Masking Kit for this https://www.wagner-group.com/uk/do-it-yourself/products-and-accessories/accessory-group/universal-extra-masking-kit/

You can generally store undiluted paint for a long time if you seal it in an airtight container. If the paint has been diluted with water then the presence of microorganisms may cause the paint to deteriorate (mould growth).
