Technical Information Sheet - September 2007
VOLVOX ProAqua White Enamel is an opaque, water based, oil and acrylic-free, satin paint for interior or exterior metal or wood surfaces. Free from chemical solvents (VOC free) it is manufactured from natural raw materials that have minimal impact on the environment. Great for doors, window frames, furniture, shelving, skirting boards, fascia boards, cladding, garden furniture and other smooth planed wood.
VOLVOX ProAqua White Enamel can also be used on rough sawn timber, but usage rates will be higher and durability may be affected. It is not recommended for floors or other heavy-duty surfaces.
VOLVOX ProAqua White Enamel has also an unlimited choice of creating pastel colours as it can be used as a base for most paint tints or pigments. For deeper colours use Volvox ProAqua Enamel Clear.
Remove dirt, grease, oil and loose, peeling and flaking material. Sand the surface smooth and remove all dust. Good sanding and a test application is recommended when painting over firm glossy or semi-gloss paint. On bare wood, no priming is needed. Metals must be primed with a coat of rust prevention paint.
Stir well. Reduce the first coat with 5-10 % water. Apply evenly and sparingly. A light sanding is advisable after the first coat has dried (grain size 180 – 240). Thereafter apply one to two undiluted coats.
VOLVOX ProAqua White Enamel can be applied by brush, roller or spray gun. Do not paint in temperatures below 8°C or above 30°C, immediately after rain, fog or frost or when these conditions are forecast.
Depending on the pigmentation and the surface properties, 0.75 litre will cover 10 to 12 square metre. 2.5 litre will cover 35 to 40 square metres. Average use is 70-90 millilitres per square metre.
