Preparation of the substrate
Walls:
the substrates must be carefully prepared by manual
brushing and/or by washing, depending on how dirty is
the surface to treat. Old paints must be removed. Before
applying on wet plaster make sure that it is set. Apply a
coat of Metro Fix and subsequently a coat of Metro
Cover in order to level the substrate.
Plasterboard:
the substrates must be carefully prepared by manual
brushing and/or by washing, making sure that they are
free of loose bits. Apply a coat of Metro Fix and
subsequently a coat of Metro Cover in order to level the
substrate.
Already painted or varnished wooden substrates:
scrape partially or generally to eliminate residues of
existing paint or varnish that is not firmly adherent or
completely remove the existing paint by washing with a
stripping solvent-based product.
New wooden substrates or old substrates already
treated as above:
grout here and there to fill in any gaps and microcrazing
with Metro Stuc. Sand lightly to make the surface to be
treated level and even. Apply a coat of Metro Fix and
sand slightly. Then verify the consistency of the
substrate: if there are dust and/or loose bits it is
necessary to apply again Metro Fix. Apply a coat of
Metro Cover in order to level the substrate.
