DESCRIPTION: A traditional oil based enamel paint which
makes it a thick, dirt-repellent and water-repellent, gloss or
satin painted finish, containing no toxic solvents, resins or heavy
metals. Made from natural renewable materials like plant oils,
resins and pigments. It is gentle to the climate and resources. It
is suitable for all wood types, steel, aluminium and copper.
Especially suitable for use on toys, panelling, skirting and
architraves, garage doors and window frames.
PREPARATION: Prepare the surface in accordance Australian
Standard 2311 Painting of Buildings. Do not apply coatings to
unseasoned or wet timber. Surfaces should be well sanded, dry and
cleaned of greasy, waxy and dirty contaminants using BIO Thinner.
Round off sharp edges. Hardwoods and other timbers rich in natural
oils, waxes, acids and terpenes should be degreased using Bio
Thinner because these substances may mix with the paint and prolong
its drying time. Imperfect coats may require complete stripping
before applying BIO products. It is also good practice to prime
back surfaces. Timber moisture content must be under 15% for
softwood, and under 12% for hardwood. Don’t apply over acrylic, PUR
or epoxy based coatings.
APPLICATION: Stir thoroughly before use with a broad flat
stirrer. First apply one coat of BIO Enamel Lacquer Undercoat water
based on a new or imperfect surfaces followed by two coats of
topcoats Thinning of BIO Enamel Lacquer with water only and topcoat
as desired with 5-10% BIO Thinner to obtain a smooth flowing
consistency. Minimum wet film thickness is 100 microns. Maintain a
wet edge when painting.
METAL PRIMER: Provides anti-corrosive protection for
steel, aluminium, brass and copper. Not effective on zinc and
galvanized surfaces. The metal should be cleaned of all grease,
dirt, processing soil, salt residues, weld scale, rust and other
residue which is likely to affect the performance of a protective
coating. Apply 1-2 coats of Metal Primer thinly and evenly. Lightly
sand between coats when completely dry. Finish with Bio Enamel
Lacquer, white or coloured.
DRYING: Apply second and subsequent coats only after
previous coat has thoroughly dried. This will take between 24 and
40 hours, and longer with cold or damp weather. Do not be tempted
to apply paint too thickly, as this retards the drying process.
Lightly sand if necessary after the undercoat. Do not use below
+12C and above 80% humidity, in cold damp conditions, when
condensation, rain, dew or frost are likely to occur, or hot days,
direct sunlight or hot surfaces. Provide adequate ventilation
during application and drying. Reaches maximum durability after
