SUMMER PAINTING ADVICE
If you thought that painting was just out of the question during the hot summer days, then think again. There are some fantastic products to get you through the season.
Dulux Hot Weather Thinner is used as an additive for easing application of water based acrylic paints under exceptionally fast drying conditions, ie. high temperatures, low humidity, dry porous surfaces, or wind. It is useful for both exterior and interior paints.
This product works by slowing the drying process, meaning that it maintains a wet edge to overcome brush drag, and improves lapping.
Simply add 50mls per litre of paint for most conditions. If conditions are severe, up to 100mls per litre may be used. Be careful not to use it under cool conditions that are below 15C, when air ciculation is poor, or when the relative humidity is high.
Cool Wrap is a polyester and cotton wrap that you can wear around your neck or forehead for instant relief from heat stress. Simply soak the wrap in cool water for 15 minutes, remove excess water, and wear for instant relief from heat.
It stays cool for up to 48 hours, recharges in minutes, lasts for years, is non toxic, and easy to clean by simply hand washing it with soap.
