1. Do not apply at temperatures below 10°C or when it is liable to drop below 10°C during the drying period.
2. Not designed as a first coat over metal surfaces or weak powdery surfaces. Exposed bare or cracked timber usually accumulates windblown salt. Before using a totally waterborne system, this salt must be removed by prolonged washing with freshwater.

Alternatively, use a solventborne undercoat. Please ensure the current Data Sheet and Safety Data Sheet are consulted prior to specification or application of product. If in doubt contact Resene.
