How should you prepare your surfaces before applying Dulux Weathershield?

For the best results, we recommend following the following steps to prepare your surfaces perfectly before applying any of the Dulux Weathershield products:

  • Ensure all surfaces to be painted are clean and dry with no dirt, grease, rust or flaking paint. (Areas affected by mould, algae or fungi should be treated with an appropriate fungicidal wash.)
  • If applying Dulux Weathershield to metal surfaces  Remove rust using an appropriate rust remover. On new galvanised metal surfaces, allow to weather for six months before application.
  • When applying over new bare wooden surfaces, to ensure 6 year weather protection is achieved, prepare bare wood with an appropriate wooden exterior primer, ensuring that you are wiping off any excess.
  • Any surface defects should be repaired prior to application
  • Thoroughly rub down previously painted surfaces, using ‘wet flatting’ methods where possible, then wipe off with a damp, lint free cloth.
