Dulux Renovation Range Tiles & Benchtops, requires a clean surface to adhere. All grease and dirt contaminations MUST be removed, or the paint will not adhere and will peel or flake off.
For previously painted surfaces:
1. Scrub down all areas with Selleys Sugar Soap and rinse with clean water to remove any dirt, oil or grease. Use a plastic scouring pas on heavily contaminated surfaces. Repeat this process using clean water, at least twice.
IMPORTANT: Do not use abrasive cleaning detergents.
2. Completely remove any loose and flaking paint. Fill any cracks or holes with a suitable hard epoxy-based filler such as Selleys Knead-IT Aqua.
3. Sand glossy and semi-gloss finishes to a dull flat finish using p400 paper before coating.
4. Use a clean damp cloth to remove any dust.
Expert tip: For the best-quality finish, do not skip steps 1 and 2 and wash extra dirty or mouldy tiles twice.

1. For grout lines ensure to remove all grease and oil.
2. Thoroughly clean surface using Selleys Rapid Mould Killer. Remove all silicone sealant from joints using Selleys Silicone Remover.

4. Sand all areas where silicone has been removed with P400 paper.
5. Wash with Selleys Sugar Soap and use a scrubbing brush or a toothbrush to properly clean grout lines.

On bathroom tiles apply Dulux Renovation Range Clear Coat as the final coating. This will add a layer of protection to the Dulux Renovation Range topcoat.
