Ecocare: Eco-friendlier paint from Warrior Paints
Warrior Paints’ Ecocare range is an environmentally-friendlier paint with low VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and low odour content. If you’re looking for a durable, aesthetically pleasing paint that can be used in rooms that need to be occupied the same day, the Ecocare range is perfect for you.
The Ecocare coating is an excellent paint for interior high traffic areas where cleanliness and stain resistance is essential. Thanks to its environmentally-friendlier and low odour nature, Ecocare is suitable for application where you need to use the newly painted room the same day it was painted, without any harmful or unpleasant side effects. Ecocare is especially suitable for use in bedrooms for infants, the elderly or ill people. It is the perfect coating for hospital wards, hotel rooms and offices where rooms need to be occupied on short notice.
Recommended paint system:
- New masonry surfaces: All surfaces must be dry, free of dust, dirt, grease and other surface contamination. Apply one coat of Warrior Water Based Alkali Resistant Plaster Primer and allow it to dry for 4 hours. Finish with at least 2 coats of Warrior Ecocare coating to colour of choice.
- Previously painted masonry surfaces: Remove by scraping, wire brushing or sanding all soft powdered, blistered, loose or flaking paint. All surfaces should be washed and allowed to dry. All bare patches must be primed with Warrior Water Based Alkali Resistant Plaster Primer and in the case of boards or panels, all metal areas and nail heads should be spot primed with Warrior Metal Etch Primer.
- Gloss or semi-gloss surfaces: Gloss or semi-gloss surfaces must always be sanded down with a fine abrasive to provide a good key for subsequent coats and then primed with Warrior Universal Undercoat and allow it to dry for 16 hours. Finish off with at least 2 coasts of Warrior Ecocare Coating to colour of choice.
Ecocare is available in either a matt or low sheen finish and this washable, curable coating is also stain resistant. For more information about this eco-friendlier paint, contact Warrior Paints today.
