On white textiles, the sealing can lead to discolouration of the surface, so we recommend testing on an inconspicuous area before application.

STEP 1: Before application ensure surfaces to be treated are clean and dry.

STEP 2: Shake the bottle well before application. Apply a light and even coating to an inconspicuous area of the surface from a distance of 20 – 30cm. Allow to dry and test for colour fastness. Depending on the weight of application, a slight darkening of the material can occur.

STEP 3: Repeat STEP 2 coating the entire surface. Alternatively, the product may be applied by roller or by immersion.

STEP 4: Allow to dry at room temperature for at least 1 hour or until the material is dry to the touch. For best results leave to dry for 24 hours before use.
