Got a few jobs around the house or a crafty project that needs touching up?
Supercheap Auto has your paint needs covered with a range of general purpose enamel paints in spray pack aerosol and convenient tins for brush on application.
Here’s how to get the best result from your paint finish.
Step 1 - Large Touch Ups
Start by cleaning up the item to be painted; removing all loose paint, dirt and rust.
A quick application of SCA Wax & Grease remover will ensure the surface is free from wax, grease & other contaminants, ensuring a clean surface for painting.
A wire brush or moderately course grit sandpaper is ideal for this.
If there is rust present on your work piece, it is good practice to treat this with SCA rust converter – before applying the Export grey or white primer.
Allow 24 hours for this to dry before applying the next coat, and apply further coats allowing 1 hour between each until you are happy with the result.
The adjustable fan spray nozzle allows for accurate application in hard to reach areas.
To provide a high gloss finish, protect your piece and ensure a long lasting shine.
Apply a few coats of clear to finish the job.
Step 1 - Small Touch Ups
As with the spray can application, ensure the surface to be painted is free of loose paint, rust and dirt.
Apply a rust converter if necessary – and a coat of grey primer to all unpainted surfaces.
Recoat time will vary depending on the method of application, so allow each coat to dry for an hour after it becomes dry to touch.
