Diamond Eggshell

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. Also includes Stain Repellent Technology so can be repeatedly wiped clean, making it ideal for high traffic areas such as stairwells and hallways. 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.

System information

To get the best results with Dulux Trade Diamond Eggshell, make sure surfaces to be painted are sound, clean and dry (new surfaces particularly must be fully dry). See Dulux Trade Datasheet 408 for full information before use, available free on request by telephoning 0333 222 70 70 or visiting duluxtrade.co.uk. Before surface preparation, read the Health & Safety information about old lead paints.

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. For best colour consistency, purchase sufficient tinted paint for each job including touch in at one time from the same source.

After use, remove as much paint as possible from equipment before cleaning with water.
