Where there is mould or any other organic growth, all paintwork in the area
should be treated with anti-fungus solution (or Dettol) before and after the
normal preparation of the surface. This will help to restrict the spread of mould
spores to other areas.
New Walls: 3 coats of Chlorinated Rubber or Epilux 4 Enamel paint.
Old Walls: 2-3 coats of the above system. A matt finish of the same type may
also be used. (A small portion may be tested with Chlorinated Rubber paint, if
lifting/ softening of the film is observed, the whole painting work should be
removed to get clean surface).
These areas can be subject to extremes of condensation because of steam and
heat in the atmosphere. Where the premises are well ventilated and the walls
and ceilings have a reasonable degree of thermal insulation, normal decorative
paints can be used.
Where severe condensation occurs, Jensolin Chlorinated Rubber paint is
recommended because of its high resistance to water.
For new surfaces, normal cleaning procedure has to be followed.
Old paint works if unsound (a portion may be tested with Jensolin Chlorinated
Rubber Paint, if unsound there will be lifting or softening of the film) should be
stripped off and cleaned to fresh wall.
Wooden/Cement Plastered surface: 2-3 coats of Jens. Chlorinated Rubber
1 coat of Jens. Chlorinated Rubber Red Oxide
2 coats of Jens. Chlorinated Rubber paint.
There are many types of brick-work that might require painting for greater
protection from weather. Rustic or sand faced clay bricks, concrete and sand-
lime bricks can normally be painted satisfactorily.
However, sand-lime bricks are sometimes friable and may need an effective
sealer before painting.
