Filling and reinforcing ability is boosted by applying thicker layers.
Cold / heat can affect the viscosity of the material
Avoid condensation forming.
Avoid working in rain or direct sunlight.
Cold and increased humidity extends drying time, full curing and recoat interval.
Increased temperature and low atmospheric humidity reduce drying time and full curing.
Always test adhesion and result before hanging.

Matt, covered surface with fine grained structure.
Reinforcing effect is boosted by applying thicker layers.

Be Aware

Protect freshly painted surface from adverse weather conditions.
Take appropriate measures against the effects of moisture and rainfall on freshly painted surfaces.
The surface achieves maximum robustness when fully cured.
