Masonry paint should not be applied to surfaces when the ambient temperature is below 5 degrees or if there is a risk of rain during application or drying.
There are conditions specific to your project that can affect this, but we would always recommend a minimum of two coats.
Depending on paint type choice, atmospheric conditions, and other variables, different paints can vary in dry time, however, for an interior wall paint in normal conditions the paint will be touch dry in approximately 1 - 2 hours.
Our paint can be applied using traditional brushes or rollers, depending on the desired final appearance.
For water-based paints, use water and for oil-based paints, use white spirit or a specific solvent-based cleaner.
We would always say 1 month for water-based to allow the product to be fully cured to its maximum durability.
Before starting to paint, read the instructions for use on the product label and check the product safety data sheet.
If the room is being painted with water-borne interior products, such as wall and ceiling paints, or with low-emission M1 classified products, it can be used around 4–6 hours after painting.
