Where necessary, wash the surface to remove dirt, grease and powdery or dusty residues. Rinse with clean water and allow to dry. Seal surfaces that remain powdery after thorough preparation with an appropriate plaster sealer.


Where necessary, rub down and the wipe off with a damp, lint free cloth to avoid dust. Any surface defects should be filled with the appropriate Polycell Trade Polyfilla.
