Surface Preparation

Hardwood. Do not apply Traditional Oil Primer direct to resinous hardwood. First apply Little Greene Aluminium Wood Primer.  Lightly sand non-resinous hardwoods. Seal knots with knotting solution.

Softwoods. Lightly sand wood prior to painting. Seal knots with a knotting compound. Ensure moisture content of timber is below 15% before painting. Never paint damp wood. This can lead to blistering, flaking or cracking.

Green Oak. Leave green Oak to weather at least 6 months before painting.

Metals. Remove surface rust from metal before applying Little Greene Traditional Oil Primer Undercoat. Non ferrous metals must be pre-treated or primed with an appropriate primer.

Existing paint finishes. Remove all loose and flaking paintwork. Wash down with sugar soap. Rinse with clean water. Rub down with a medium grade sand paper to provide a key. “Feather in” areas where paint has been removed. Make good any repairs. Sand and then apply the primer to exposed surfaces.
