Suitable Substrates: Wood, metal (with suitable primer) and come composite materials. If in doubt we always recommend doing a small test area.

How to Apply: When applying the Blackboard paint the surface should be stable, firm, dry and free of any dust, sand, loose or flaking paint, dirt, grease or oil. When applying to porous substrates such as bare timber dilute the first coat by 10% with white spirit. Although it is dry to the touch in approximately 4 hours leave a minimum of 16 hours between coats. When applying to new surfaces we recommend applying two coats but a single coat will be suitable for refreshing existing coatings.
Coverage Area: With Blackboard paint expect a realistic coverage of 10-12 m² per litre, although this can vary significantly depending on the porosity of the substrate.
