Characteristics: Manufactured form the finest quality, carefully selected pigments, finely ground in a copolymer emulsion with Teflon® additive.
Advantages: Washable. Easy wipe. Splash and Stain Resistant. More durable than other matt paints. Excellent hiding power. Quick drying. Easy to apply. No primer required on new and sound previously painted masonry surfaces. Wide colour range. Smooth matt finish. Suitable for interior and exterior use. Allows new walls, still containing moisture to breathe/dry out.
Application: By brush, rollers, conventional or airless spray.
Thinning: Supplied ready for use. However, on new, bare and porous surfaces and for spray application Crown Matt Emulsion with Teflon® can be thinned up to 15% with clean water for first coat on new surfaces to aid penetration into porous surfaces. Avoid over-thinning as this will affect the opacity. Stir well before use.
Drying Times: Touch Dry: 1 – 2 hours. Re-coatable in 3- 4 hours.

- When overcoating walls in sound condition with the same shade, the application of 1 coat may be sufficient.
- When overcoating a dark colour with a light shade, the application of 3 coats may be necessary.
- Choice of colours for technical reasons (often dependent upon pigment origin and type) an additional coat will often be required when using certain shades (particularly Bright Yellows, Greens, Oranges, Reds. The use of these colours should be avoided on medium and low-cost projects. Where these low opacity colours are to be used on bare plaster, or for overcoating dark colours, the application of a first coat of a paler shade offering superior coverage is recommended.
- For chemical reasons, certain dark colours offer less resistance to fading when subjected to ultra violet light, especially in tropical climates.
