Dulux Trade Weathershield Smooth Masonry Paint

Weathershield Smooth Masonry Paint is an exterior quality emulsion paint based on an all acrylic resin. It contains a fungicide to inhibit mould growth on the paint film and help it stay cleaner for longer. It is particularly suitable for use in changeable weather and is shower resistant in only 30 minutes after application. Suitable for use on most sound, dry exterior masonry and rendering, including concrete, roughcast, pebble-dash and brickwork which is normally suitable for painting, eg rustic or sand-faced bricks. Common or fletton bricks should not be painted (see BRE Information Paper Number IP22/79, Painting of Common Fletton Brickwork). Painting of parapet, free standing and retaining walls below ground level damp-proof course is inadvisable. In these situations, it may be difficult to prevent moisture penetration and consequent failure of the paint coating. Painting this type of wall may also increase the risk of frost damage and spalling of the brickwork or stonework. BBA Certificate Number 97/3383*.

System information

To get the best results with Weathershield Smooth Masonry Paint make sure surfaces to be painted are sound, clean and dry (new surfaces particularly fully dry). Treat any areas affected by mould, lichens and algae with a suitable fungicidal wash. See Dulux Trade Datasheet 418 for full information before use. STIR THOROUGHLY BEFORE USE. Seal all new or bare surfaces with a thinned coat of Weathershield Smooth Masonry Paint (up to 1 part clean water to 5 parts paint). The normal finishing process is 2 full coats of Weathershield Smooth Masonry Paint, but on previously painted surfaces in good condition, where similar colours are used, 1 coat may be sufficient. In normal conditions two coats of Weathershield Smooth Masonry Paint properly applied to the substrate in accordance with the instructions will perform satisfactorily for up to 15 years giving good colour stability (as part of BBA certificate 97/3383). See current colour collateral for choice of colours. For best colour consistency, purchase sufficient tinted paint for each job including touch-in at one time from the same source. After use remove as much paint as possible from brushes before cleaning with water.
