Rendona Emulsion Paint
Water based interior paint, with a chalky matt finish, suitable for walls and ceilings. Can be applied by brush or roller. Will dry in 2 to 4 hours. Coverage per litre approx 12 square metres. Environmentally friendly with minimal VOC content.
Make sure that the surface to be painted is clean and dry. New plaster should be completely dry. Loose or flaking paint should be rubbed off and any dirt or grease washed off. New or porous surfaces such as plasterboard which are very absorbent are often difficult to paint, add up to 10% clean water and stir in, then apply as a base coat.
When opening the paint remove any skin that may have formed and stir if necessary.

It is therefore advisable to sand such surfaces before applying this paint, otherwise more than two coats will be required.

Iron Oxide (Fe203) pigments are the most reliable, light fast and durable of pigments for use in cement.
We recommend use of our pigments by weight, never volume, and by using a percentage of the cement content of an overall mix. Percentages can be varied to obtain different levels of tinting or to vary the shades within a series of mixes to give a more natural effect, for instance, to an area of paving. Variation in colour shades can also be achieved by using grey or white cement, by using different coloured aggregates/sands, and by the amount of water added to the mix.
We recommend between 3 and 5% of pigment by weight of Ordinary Portland Cement. For example, 4% pigment by weight of a mix with a cement content of 50kg would require 2kg of pigment. Pigmentation above 7-8% of the cement content leads to minimal change in the depth of colour.
Pigments should preferably be added to a dry mix of the cement, sand and/or aggregate to shear the pigment, before adding water to the desired consistency and mixing as usual.
