Dulux? TRADE Dulux Trade Diamond Eggshell is a tough, durable and attractive mid-sheen finish. By using Diamond Technology from Dulux Trade, it is 10 times tougher than Dulux Trade Vinyl Silk and resistant to typical household stains. It is quick-drying and of low odour compared to solvent-based paints, and therefore ideal for use where minimum disruption is important. Dulux Trade Diamond Eggshell can be used over surfaces previously decorated with solvent-based paints, providing proper surface preparation is carried out.

SURFACE PREPARATION To get the best results with Dulux Trade Diamond Eggshell, make sure surfaces to be painted are sound, clean, dry (new surfaces particularly must be fully dry) and free from all defective or poorly adhering material such as dirt, grease and wax. New or bare surfaces should be primed with an appropriate Dulux Trade primer. Thoroughly rub down previously painted surfaces using ‘wet flatting’ methods where possible, then wipe off with a damp, lint free cloth. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead. Treat knots with a suitable knotting solution. Any surface defects should be filled with the appropriate Polycell Trade Polyfilla. SYSTEMS INFORMATION STIR THOROUGHLY BEFORE USE. Seal new or bare surfaces with a thinned first coat of Dulux Trade Diamond Eggshell (up to 1 part clean water to 10 parts paint). The normal finishing process is 2 full coats of Dulux Trade Diamond Eggshell, but on previously painted surfaces in good condition where similar colours are used, 1 coat may be sufficient. When applying water-based paints to surfaces previously decorated with a conventional solvent-based paint, very thorough surface preparation will be necessary. For best colour consistency, purchase sufficient tinted paint for each job including touch-in at one time from the same source.
