Crown Covermatt has been especially prepared for use by the trade for the interior decoration of walls and ceilings. Can be applied directly to cement rendering, brick, stone etc., in addition to plaster and soft board surfaces. Covermatt possesses excellent obliterating characteristics and is extremely easy to apply.
Characteristics: High opacity copolymer emulsion paint with lead-free pigmentation. Contains a fungicide to retard mould growth.
Advantages: Excellent hiding power. Economical. The porous nature of the film allows new surfaces to breathe and dry out easily. No primer required on new or previously painted sound masonry surfaces.
Application: Apply by brush, roller or spray equipment.
Thinning: For first coat work and for application to porous or textured surfaces and for spray application, Covermatt can bethinned with clean water but over-thinning should be avoided.
Drying Times: Re-coatable in 4 hours.
