All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from flaking paint before applying Al Fresco. Certain surfaces require specific preparation;
Painted garage doors and metal garden furniture, as well as UPVC front doors; sand lightly to eliminate debris and to key the surface.
Bare or new unpainted metal; prime with Finishing Coat to help prevent rusting.
Untreated redwood, cedar and mahogany; prime with Finishing Coat to seal their resin-filled knots.
Wooden furniture or fencing pre-treated with wood stain or linseed type oils needs to be Weathered prior to painting.
The Al Fresco range is a two-coat product, which likes mild weather whilst it dries. Once dry, however, it is weatherproof and will put up with all that the seasons can throw at it.
This hard-wearing, breathable paint, like all our Frenchic products, requires no stirring, shaking or water-dilution. Apply with Frenchic paint-brush, or indeed any quality brush. After use, clean the brushes in warm water and washing-up liquid. Ideally, apply both coats in the same day. Allow two to three days drying time for furniture subject to hard use and/or items that will come into direct contact with soft furnishing.
Frenchic ® Al Fresco is a water based, very low VOC exterior chalk and mineral furniture paint specially developed to protect your outside furniture while at the same time transforming your garden into a pleasurable, relaxing outdoor environment. Complying with EN71:3** means that it is safe to use on children's toys.
Coverage: 750ml can covers approximately 7.5m2 per coat. Coverage will vary depending on the condition of the surface. Rougher wood will reduce the coverage.
