Owatrol – 3 top products
Owatrol Oil is a unique solution that has three elements in one. Not only is it an excellent paint conditioner for all solvent based paints, but it is also a wood care solution and metal protector as well! As a paint conditioner it is like no other. Added to any solvent based paint, it opens the wet edge to allow a smoother application which is perfect for cutting in. It removes brush and roller marks and when the weather is either extremely hot or cold, it allows the Professional to continue painting and not have to worry about the paint becoming sticky or runny. It is micro-porous which is why it is so beneficial to both internal and external timber and for rusted metal, it binds the rust particles whilst providing a protecting layer to the unoxygenated, clean metal beneath the rust.
This is quickly becoming the Professional Decorators best mate especially as the latest low VOC water-based paints are not performing as they used to. Added to a water-based gloss, Floetrol comes into its own by leaving a perfect finish without roller or brush marks. Like Owatrol Oil, it opens the wet edge of water-based paints allowing cutting in. Painting in extreme hot or cold conditions becomes a yes-yes rather than a no-no!
E-B (Emulsa Bond)
A micro-porous bonding primer that can be added to any water-based paint. It is perfect for all porous surfaces including render, plaster, brick, wood. When E-B is added to paint, it draws the paint into the substrate and binds it there, so that it provides a lasting finish for many years. When used on external masonry, E-B mixed with any masonry paint will increase the flow by up to 25%, whilst bonding and sealing the surface, so no need for a separate sealant. When painting onto new plaster, by using E-B in the first coat only, you negate the need for a mist coat, as it will bind the paint. It also means that the next coat goes on much better, as it adheres to the E-B/Paint mix, and in many cases two coats is all you require to finish the job.
