How Do I Paint Interior Alloy?

  • Wash down with Tikkurila roof cleaning agent. Alloys often have a covering of oil from manufacturing which needs to be removed. Even after exposure to the elements, the oils can persist. It is essential to remove these oils to ensure primers and topcoats adhere correctly.
  • All surfaces must be dry and roughened to form a ‘key’ prior to priming. The temperature of the ambient air, surface or paint should not fall below + 5 ºC during application or drying.
  • If previously painted, remove any loose and flaking coatings and feather off any edges.
  • Good ventilation and sufficient air movement is required in confined areas during application and drying

Apply basecoat of Rostex Super Akva

Suitable topcoats include Everal Aqua, Helmi or Akvitop DS25.
