Always use paint tools of good quality

Use only appropriate, clean and dry paint tools of good quality.

For optimum result use clean, longhaired, soft bristle brushes of good quality. Preferably EPIFANES brushes. Using a good quality brush will not only assist in an excellent flow, but will also hold more product and provide more wet film. This is important for the film building, gloss retention and protecting properties. Clear varnishes should always be applied by brush.



Applying paint by roller is fast and easy, but be ware! Application by roller leads to much thinner coats than application by brush (up to 50% less). Therefore always apply one or more additional coats when applying paint by roller.



Roller application may produce a so called orange peel” effect. This is mainly caused by roller structure, but can be emiminated by following immediatelty after with light brush strokes over the rolled surface..This is known as "rolling & tipping" and is most easily done with two people working in tandem. Check out "roll & tipp" on youtube

Foam Poly brushes

To avoid brush marks or an “orange peel” effect, the wet film may also be lightly brushed out using a foam Poly-Brush. Do not press. Attention: the Poly-brush does not replace regular brush or roller. If needed, round the foam brush edges using scissors.


Masking tape

To ensure a sharp paint edge, exclusively use high quality masking tape. Tightly fix masking tape to the surface. After paint or varnish has been applied, remove masking tape within 2 hours.
