FAQ & Hints - Common Painting Problems to Avoid

These are listed in no particular order but steps should always be taken to avoid these issues as many can cause paint problems.

  1. Substrates
    should be suitable: as unsound, rusty, damp, or dusty/oily substrates of many types can cause problems. Mould - get rid of mould, including spores, by applying diluted bleach solution (about 1:5 in water) - allow it to dry, repeat, allow to dry thoroughly & then paint. Provide ventilation to avoid future excessive condensation.
  2. Coverage
    over-spreading or thinning of paint/varnish etc; ie - an insufficient film build; on Exterior Gloss Paint & Woodstain varnish, this can lead to premature failure with all brands of product & on Interior paint/varnish can lead to poor adhesion.
  3. Preparation
    poor preparation can lead to many problems; also - do NOT wipe with a White Spirit cloth.
  4. "Impossible" Substrates
    pre-existing "impossible"substrates; Distemper, Limewash,Silthane, Teak Oil, Danish Oil, Linseed Oil, Wax, polish residues, Beeswax, French Polish, new putty, silicone sealants, low-cost Fillers & Decorators Caulk, economy texture finish (ie imitation "Artex") wallpaper paste/size residues, copper pipes, galvanized surfaces, glass,tiles;all of these & maybe more are virtually impossible to treat with all brands of water-based paints & also with most types of conventional solvent-based products.
  5. How to remove wallpaper paste & size residues -
    Strip off the wallpaper as normal. wet the wall very thoroughly with warm water + a little detergent. leave to soak for 20 mins, then re-wet as before & scrub off any paste & size with a nylon bristle brush & plenty of water. Allow to dry thoroughly before painting.
  6. LimePlaster & Cob;
    use Matt, SuperChalky or Cover-Up (all with care !)
  7. Sunshine & Heat
    painting in full sunshine - leads to ultra-fast drying & possibly patchiness & dullness with most brands of paint & varnish.
  8. Storing Cold
    using or storing any water-based paint at near-frost temperatures will cause many problems including solidification, separation & a dusty discontinuous film if the product is used.
  9. Storing Hot
    storing any paint at high temperatures (eg boiler cupboard) can cause many problems including ; gellation, bacterial spoilage (bad odour etc), accelerated can rusting/staining, separation etc.
  10. Equipment
    poor quality / inappropriate brushes & rollers; always use the right tool for the job. If the equipment is old, worn out, incorrect, you must buy new - to do otherwise is a false economy.
  11. Wet Edge
    always keep a wet edge as far as is practicable you cannot leave a job part-finished, even for a few minutes. always finish a run of paint/varnish/stain, etc at a natural divide ie - in a corner, or divide; do not stop painting in the middle of a wall/surface as the join may be visible. For the same reason, "touching-in" or "touching-up" a previously finished area, even with the same tin of paint, is almost impossible with any brand unless the applicator is very skilled at "feathering-in" as there is no "wet-edge" to work to.
  12. Buy enough
    always buy enough product to finish the job, as no two batches are ever exactly the same - be it paint, fabric, wallpaper etc, from any supplier.
  13. Thinners
    wash equipment with water only - do not use any thinners or white spirit for washing, thinning, or wiping.
  14. Correct Product
    use the appropriate product for the job in hand; interior wallpaints, for example, will not work well out of doors.
    Mar, burnish & washability etc; please be aware that with any brand of paint, the characterisics of each type of paint are quite different. Eggshell & Feng Shui, for example, can even be used inside a shower enclosure, as they are formulated to be super- washable, whereas matt, for example, is much less water-resistant.
    Mar & Burnish - in areas of high traffic, eg corridor, office, etc - dark colours in Matt paints - in all brands of paint - can be susceptible to marking if rubbed/knocked/scraped. This is called Mar (scraped) or Burnish (rubbed) & can easily be avoided by the use of a different type of paint, such as Soft Sheen or Eggshell, which are much more resistant to mar & burnish & well-suited to high-traffic areas. Pale/mid colours & white are generally unaffected/barely affected.
  15. Contamination
    do not rest soap or oil on a painted surface; these will soften & remove any brand of paint.
    Use only mild cleansers - do not use bleach, soap, caustic, harsh, scouring or abrasive cleansers. Hardening - although all Ecos Paints & Varnishes appear to be fully hard within a few hour of application, they do continue to cure & further harden for approx 10 days & it is advised not to wet, clean or scuff during this period.
  16. Boards
    floorboards and T & G apply along the length of the boards,not across, as the latter will leave a crossways mark with any brand of paint/varnish/stain. If bleed-through of tannins causes patchy discolouration (rarely), obliteration is best achieved with 2 very thin coats rather than one thicker coat.
  17. Primers & Putty
    pink primers in particular are notorious for allowing bleed-through with many brands of paint; tannelized or pressure-treated wood cannot be reliably painted with any brand of paint until the carrier solvent has fully evaporated.Likewise, Putty must be through-hard before painting.
  18. Mixing
    do not mix brands of paint on a job in hand - each manufacturer has different formulae & colours & some may be incompatible with each other.
  19. Stains
    when painting onto previously stained wood, be aware that water-based stains can often strike through, necessitating the use of Stainblock.
  20. Knots
    seal with two coats of Ecos White Knotting (should be white prior to applying paint).
  21. Fillers
    we recommend Ecos Powder Filler or the brand Polyfilla; all fillers should ideally be sealed with Ecos Filler Sealer. Omitting this step can cause visual surface effects & flaking under severe circumstances.
    We cannot recommend the use of Tetrion brand fillers, Own Brand Fillers, or Economy or Low Cost Fillers as all can cause problems of flaking, bubbling, disbonding etc, with many types & brands of water-based paints.
  22. Bare Plaster
    should be dry & dust-free, then sealed with one coat of Ecos Plaster Sealer & allowed to dry thoroughly before painting.
    Lime Plaster & Cob - see above.
    Ready-mixed plasters: a test area is advisable (as these are proprietary mixtures & not conventional gypsum plasters).

Where to use:
Interior walls and ceilings:

This super-conductive wallpaint uses non toxic nickel pigment to provide a shield against EMR & ELF electrical radiations in the home and workplace.

On bare plaster/plasterboard - prime with Ecos plaster sealer.

19. M16 LONG LIFE INSTANT ALGICIDE

PROTECT FROM FROST

Description:
Water based low toxicity algal, slime, lichen & moss remover for patios, paths, stonework, paving, slates, walls, brickwork, concrete etc and timber.

Simple and easy to use - simply apply and leave to work, no scrubbing necessary.

Contains no toxic algicides - kind to the environment.

No restrictions on residues entering drains and water courses. Gives excellent long-term protection against re-growth, normally for upto 6 - 9 months.

The special ingredients bond with the surface to which they are applied & become an intrinsic part of the structure below, making re-growth very difficult.

Directions for use:
Apply in DRY weather when the surface is totally dry - by brush, roller or preferably garden spray and leave to work. A noticeable "seaweed"smell is normal & indicative of die-back. Depending on the weather and the level of algal growth, the algae will be destroyed instantly & disappears by weathering & erosion over several days. DO NOT RINSE OFF. Do not use when rain is forecast.

IMPORTANT- may be slippery underfoot until the algae is removed/destroyed.

If contamination is particularly heavy a second application may be needed after several days.

Precautions:
The product is alkaline and must be prevented from coming into contact with eyes - suitable eye protection should be worn. It is recommended that the product does not come into contact with skin. Wear gloves or wash off any splashes quickly. Whilst the product can be sprayed this should only be carried out by NON-MISTING, NON AEROSOL low pressure liquid garden spray under conditions that ensure the control of overspray due to the alkaline nature of the product.

DO NOT ALLOW TO COME INTO CONTACT WITH CLOTHING, FURNISHINGS OR CARPETS AS DAMAGE MAY RESULT - nb. CONTAINS BLEACHING AGENTS.

KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

Harmless to plants & animals once dried & used as directed.

Usage - 5 to 15 square metres per litre depending on substrate porosity.
