All Available Colours

On-screen colours may vary according to different screen calibrations so we always recommend purchasing a sample pot first if colour is critical and always applying a test area before painting.

Before Using Owatrol E.S.P

First clean and dry all surfaces to remove oil, grease and other contaminants and remove any loose and flaking old finish.

For oily, greasy, waxed or varnished surfaces prepare by scrubbing with a green scourer or 00 steel wool soaked with ESP.

Wipe clean after 5-10 minutes then follow the standard application instructions.



How To Apply Owatrol E.S.P

Apply ESP generously with a clean, dry, lint free cloth. If ESP crawls or separates, the surface is not clean.

Wipe off ESP and re-clean according to above directions before continuing. 

Leave to stand for 5 minutes then lightly wipe over the surface in one direction with a clean cloth to remove any excess ESP. 

Allow to dry for 2 hours. 

When dry, ESP may be left up to 7 days before applying the finish. If this time has passed, re-apply ESP as directed before painting.

Clean Up

Clean all tools and equipment with soap and water.
