Q. I need to stain a work bench with a black stain. It has been well polyurethaned (at least a couple of coats). Do I need to strip right back or can I simply stain over?

A. Yes as the stain coat needs to be applied to the timber.

November 2017

Q. Can you apply a coating to help contain formaldehyde?

A. Yes but to hold back the formaldehyde the full number of coats would be required to all surfaces, envelope coating (all four sides).

November 2017

Q. I've just finished skimming some walls with GIB® Plus 4 and want to apply the correct undercoat/primer between the plaster and acrylic topcoats. Which product would you recommend for this?

A. For dry areas use Resene Broadwall Waterborne Wallboard Sealer.

November 2017

Q. We have dark brown aluminium joinery door frames inside our house. Some of the frames are faded from cleaning with incorrect products, I believe. What is the best solution to renewing the colour?

A. Painting is the only option but this will not give the same smooth even finish of the original powder coating.

November 2017

Q. We have an outdoor courtyard entertaining area. At one end is a COLORBOND® roller door and at the end is a pergola and TV mounted on the house wall. There is a lot of light reflecting from the roller door onto the TV. What is the best type of paint to limit the amount of reflection? I assume a matt black or grey. We would prefer a dark colour but not a black.

A. If there does not appear to be any corrosion of the roller door surface, clean down using Resene Roof and Metal Wash diluted and used to label directions then apply two coats of Resene Summit Roof in the Resene CoolColour™ version of the colour you select.

November 2017

Q. We have a plastered wall with rock capping and mortar. The lime is leaching and running down the plaster which looks really ugly. In addition on paved steps with plaster upstands there is the same problem.

A. If you can remove the efflorescence then apply a saturation coat of Resene Solventborne Aquapel - this will reduce the potential for leaching. You may need to resort to application of a dilute hydrochloric acid solution (need to wear full protective gear as the concentrate and solution is corrosive, always add acid to water and not vice versa) to remove the efflorescence but suggest that you try power wire brushing as the first step. The original cause of the efflorescence should be eliminated prior to repainting.

Note: Efflorescence is caused by water getting into concrete often via cracks or faulty flashings, cappings etc. in an exterior wall. The source of the water causing the efflorescence needs to be found and eliminated before repainting. Affected areas should also be allowed to dry out thoroughly before repainting.

November 2017

Q. I want to repaint a west facing exterior Fibrolite wall for maximum weatherproofing. It was painted with Resene Lumbersider some years ago. I am considering Resene AquaShield or Resene X-200. The rest of the house is Adobe finish plaster. I was also considering a thick paint with a sand type material in it. Please advise suitability, the difference between these or other suggestions.

A. If there are no moisture issues and the existing paint is sound you can apply two coats of Resene Sandtex to achieve a sand type of texture. Scrub down the existing paint with Resene Paint Prep and Housewash diluted and used to label directions then apply the new paint.

Resene X-200 applied to achieve a dry film thickness of 180 microns would be our recommendation to achieve a weathertight paint system; you can then apply Resene Sandtex if you want the sand-like texture appearance.

November 2017

Q. We have decided to replace our cladding with new Hardiflex®. Please advise the painting process for this product to protect it from weather. Would we still use Resene X-200 as the final coat?

A. Apply Resene Concrete Primer to the new FC and then apply two coats of Resene X-200. Hardiflex® correctly installed should not be subject to water ingress.

November 2017

Q. There is a thin brass strip covering the raw edges of ceramic tiles on corners in my bathroom. These don't get wet. What product should I use to paint them to match the tiles?

A. Prime the brass with Resene Vinyl Etch then apply two coats of colour tinted into any of our waterborne enamels, such as Resene Lustacryl.

November 2017

Q. I have a concrete block internal wall that has efflorescence that is causing the paint to bubble. What is the best way to prepare the surface before repainting?

A. Efflorescence is caused by water getting into concrete often via cracks or faulty flashings, capping etc, in an exterior wall. The source of the water causing the efflorescence needs to be found and eliminated before repainting. Affected areas should also be allowed to dry out thoroughly before repainting.

Thoroughly wire brush to remove any remaining efflorescence. The original cause of the efflorescence should be eliminated prior to repainting.

November 2017

Q. I would like to paint my rimu floorboards (previously unfinished). Would Resene Walk-on be a good choice for a low maintenance finish? I have rescue dogs so I need something that will stand up to dogs, and their occasional accidents!

A. The only system that would have a chance of achieving a scratch resistant surface to dog claws would be four coats of Resene Polythane clear.

November 2017

Q. I have a rental with old fences I'd like to tidy up. They are nothing super flash, and I’m not sure if I can stain the already stained sections? What is the best way to clean them up first? Rather than stain, do I seal and then paint them? And the unstained fence sections: do I stain them or also paint?

A. I would really only recommend staining, as the fence timbers are likely to be old and heavily contaminated with algae growth.

Treat with Resene Moss & Mould Killer diluted and used to label directions, then carefully water blast, and then apply Resene Woodsman Wood Oil stain.

November 2017

Q. Can you put Resene Lumbersider paint on to an oil-based primer?

A. Yes, you can use Resene Lumbersider.

November 2017

Q. I use many of your testpots with the great variety of colours available but when applied to sealed sanded wood I can’t seem to get a smooth finish. I have tried different brushes bur wonder if there is a better way to a more even finish.

A. The testpot paint is based on a waterborne paint resin and compared to many other similar paints it is formed at a high solids level. We recommend addition of Resene Hot Weather Additive for application of our waterborne paints under warmer conditions.

Added at the recommend level the Resene Hot Weather Additive also gives the wet film an increased open time which should allow for more flow and levelling to occur.

November 2017

Q. I am currently working of repainting the outside of my weatherboard house and after stripping all the old paint to the naked wood I applied a Resene Sureseal primer. Subsequently I was told that Resene Sureseal is for concrete and that I need to strip it all back and start again. I would like to confirm whether Resene Sureseal is unsuitable for naked wood?

I would like a recommendation on what paint and filler is most suitable for my needs. My house has quite old weatherboards with plenty of cracks and dents. The house is located near the beach and is very exposed to UV rays and ocean storms with salt and ironsand spray. What is the most weather resistant gap filler and main coat of Resene paint that I could use?

Our house is nestled amongst the bush so our natural preference would be for a matt/low sheen finish so the house would blend in better into the surroundings. However, we have been advised in the past that a gloss finish would have better sun and weather tolerance properties due to a smoother finish nature.

A. The time to the onset of chalking is directly related to the gloss level of the paint, the higher the gloss level the longer the time till onset of chalking.

Finishing with a high gloss paint has fallen out of favour with the general public and specifiers. We recommend using Resene Sonyx 101 as the exterior topcoat system as this gives a good durable gloss level between a full (Resene Hi-Glo) and lower gloss finish (Resene Lumbersider). If using dark colours we recommend application of the CoolColour™  version of the colour as the CoolColour version will reflect more heat than the same colour made using non-cool technology and thus reduces stress on both the paint film and substrate.

Resene Sureseal is not usually recommended for priming of exterior timber as it does not have all of the benefits/features that come with Resene Wood Primer. Despite this it can be used for priming but in your case I recommend overpainting with a full coat of Resene Quick Dry to upgrade the primer system.

We stock RepairCare products for repairs to cracked and minor areas of rot in timber.

November 2017

Q. I want to damp/moisture proof my garage concrete floor. What type of paint can do this work effectively and withstand the moisture? This is a 1950s house, so in all likelihood, the garage floor would not have a poly layer, prior to concreting.

A. We recommend Resene HydraBlock waterborne epoxy barrier. Resene HydraBlock is a transparent two pack, low VOC waterborne epoxy barrier coating, for application to cementitious surfaces, subject to hydrostatic pressure. It has excellent adhesion and is tolerant of application over damp surfaces. It controls rising damp and efflorescence. Typical uses: Masonry – walls, in-situ concrete – walls/floors and plastered walls.

Subsequently, I was told that Resene Sureseal is for concrete and that I need to strip it all back and start again. Could you confirm however, that Resene Sureseal is unsuitable for naked wood?

Also, I would like a recommendation on what paint and filler is most suitable for my needs. My house has quite old weatherboards with plenty of cracks and dents. The house is located near the beach and is very exposed to UV rays and ocean storms with salt and iron sand spray.

The time to the onset of chalking is directly related to the gloss level of the paint, the higher the gloss level the longer the time until onset of chalking.
Finishing with a high gloss paint has fallen out of favour with the general public and specifiers. We recommend using Resene Sonyx 101 semi-gloss as the exterior topcoat system, as this gives a good durable gloss level between a full (Resene Hi-Glo) and low sheen finish (Resene Lumbersider). If using dark colours, we recommend application of the Resene CoolColour™ version of the colour, as the CoolColour version will reflect more heat than the same colour made using non-cool technology (however not cool to touch), and thus reduces stress on both the paint film and substrate.

November 2017

Q. I have a white picket fence where some nail heads have gone rusty. What do I treat them with before applying topcoat?

A. Remove all loose rust and carrion product using a 3M Rust and Paint Removal Disc, then spot prime the nail heads with Resene Rust Arrest, then apply topcoats.

If there is corrosion staining coming from behind the nail heads, then the system cannot address this.

November 2017

Q. We live in Fiji. The white oil based paints on our window and door frames are constantly going mouldy. This is a real problem because many are extremely difficult to reach to clean. Why does this happen and what can be done? It is a huge job if we have to repaint. If we used water based or low sheen, would we still have the same problem?

A. The occurrence of mould growth on a painted surface is related to the environment and not the paint type, although low gloss paints do appear to be more susceptible to the establishment of mould growth. In Fiji the climate does see increased biological growth on exterior painted surfaces. Application of Resene Deep Clean will give ongoing control of mould growth and is slow acting; biological growth is killed and then washed off with rain. I would say that a biannual application would be a sensible approach.

November 2017

Q. I am thinking of painting over some two pack, kitchen cupboard doors etc., preferably with acrylic gloss or semi-gloss paint.

A. Use Resene Interior Paintwork Cleaner to ensure the surfaces to be painted are clean and free from grease, paying particular attention to hand contact areas. Lightly sand, dust off, then apply a thin coat of Resene Waterborne Smooth Surface Sealer and allow curing without water contact, for at least 48 hours before over coating. Then apply two coats of Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen or Resene Lustacryl waterborne enamel. Roll all coats using the recommended roller sleeve.

The new paint system will take five days to develop good initial adhesion, and continue to cure for an additional three weeks, until full cure occurs. In the early stages, the paint surface will not have good resistance to cleaners or abrasion as these features develop as the film undergoes curing.

November 2017

Q. I am planning on using treated plywood for the bottom half of our bathroom walls. What prep would you suggest prior to whitewash being applied? I am planning to use whitewash paint, or 2 parts water: 1 part paint.

A. I suggest that the ‘paint’ you use is Resene Quick Dry, then overcoat with 3+ coats of Resene Polythane.

November 2017

Q. We have a concrete deck with fibreglass topping, with peeling paint. We need a paint that will withstand foot traffic, snow in winter and possibility of minus 16 degrees, with heat up to the 40s in summer.

The paint isn’t sticking to the fibreglass. Prior owners have painted it with house paint and when we get rain, the water gets under the paint and it bubbles then lifts.

A. Strip the existing paint system, degrease with Resene Paint Prep and Housewash diluted and used to label directions, sand to profile, then apply a coat of Resene Armourcote 221 and finish with two coats of a Resene Uracryl 400 Series topcoat. For wet slip resistance add 500g/L Resene Industrial SRG Grit to the first coat and then apply a seal coat of unmodified Resene Uracryl 440 Series topcoat.

November 2017

Q. I have just spent three days scrubbing my extensive, ground level wooden decking, free of black mould and it looks great. Is there a Resene product to back up my hard work and keep it looking that way? I am elderly and would not like to face applications of anything too frequently. Ease of application would be a bonus!

A. Yes, Resene Deep Clean (see attached data sheet), you may have to adopt a biannual application, at the beginning of autumn and again at the beginning of spring.

November 2017

Q. I have cedar weatherboards, which have previously been stained with oil based stain, there is some mould evident. Which is the best cleaner to use before re-staining?

A. Treat mould areas with Resene Moss & Mould Killer diluted and used to label directions, then scrub down using Resene Timber and Deck Wash diluted again used to label directions.

November 2017

Q. I have recently painted some brand-new skirting boards and used Resene Wood Primer 'general purpose' solvent-borne, then a Resene Enamel undercoat 'general purpose', before eventually applying several topcoats of Resene Enamacryl gloss waterborne (white) as I did not want a high gloss finish. Is it ok to use solventborne 'base coats', topped with waterborne 'topcoats'?

A. Yes no issues, but to achieve the best adhesion of the waterborne enamel topcoats, I prefer the topcoats to be applied to Resene Quick Dry Primer Undercoat.

November 2017

Q. Does Resene have a weathertight clear-coat paint/coating system available for honed or surface-exposed solid filled masonry blockwork walls when they are being used as part of the external envelope of a building?

A. We recommend Resene XC-700.

November 2017

Q. Does existing Resene Uracryl need to be undercoated if recoating with Resene Uracryl?

A. A Resene Uracryl 400 Series finish does not need undercoating as long as the existing Resene Uracryl 400 Series finish is chalk free and sound. If the system has been applied to a metal surface and the system has lost adhesion due to corrosion breakthrough then repairs and installation of an appropriate priming system is required.

November 2017

Q. I want to paint a concrete floor in our shop. The staff have picked their colour but I need help on what paint to use that is not going to be slippery and is easy to sweep/clean.

A. We recommend Resene Aquapoxy for Flooring.

November 2017

Q. Prior to repainting, can I wash my exterior stucco walls with Resene Roof Wash and Paint Cleaner? I have a new 1L container of it I would like to use. Also, do I need to rinse after the wash? Do I need to use Resene Moss & Mould Killer too?

From reading up on your website. It states that mould will be present on stucco even if I can’t see it. If I now must use Resene Moss and Mould Killer, after 48hrs do I then also have to use Resene Paint Prep and Housewash?

A. We recommend using Resene Paint Prep and Housewash diluted and used to label directions for preparing painted stucco, and yes it does require a thorough rinsing with water.

The products have different roles to play in preparing a painted surface for repainting; Resene Moss & Mould Killer is designed to kill biological growth, while Resene Paint Prep and Housewash is a general cleaner aimed at producing a clean, chalk free surface.

So you may well have to use both, depending upon the contamination and condition of the painted surfaces.

November 2017

Q. I am about to start painting a small toilet closet which has previously been stained; but that would have been about 70 years ago. This little room has been subject to quite a lot of borer infestation in the past, but I think I have mainly got on top of that now. To paint the room, should I start with a sealer, or would a wood primer be better? I feel the first coat of paint would be best to be painted in an enamel based paint, to hopefully help deter borer happening again.

The house is an ex-state house and I think the timber on the wall is called ‘match’ lining, or something to that effect. It was often used as wall linings in laundries and toilets. The wall staining is now very old but is still quite a dark brown. I am intending to lighten up the closet with a lighter colour. I am wondering if the first coat should be a sealer rather than a primer.

A. The application of Resene Wood Primer will not address or impact upon borer control.

If there has been no recent repainting, then the existing paint is likely to be old enamel paint and given the age of the dwelling, it may be an old lead containing paint. For this reason, I would advise against sanding to prepare for a new paint system. Clean down using Resene Interior Paintwork Cleaner and then apply a thin coat of Resene Waterborne Smooth Surface Sealer and finish with two coats of Resene Resene Lustacryl.

The new paint system will take five days to develop good initial adhesion and continue to cure for an additional three weeks until full cure occurs. In the early stages, the paint surface will not have good resistance to cleaners or abrasion as these features develop as the film undergoes curing.

November 2017

Q. I am painting new Glulam posts on a carport. I note in the Glulam blurb about not painting Glulam materials dark colours. Our intention was to paint these to match the Ironsand cladding. What is the LRV of Ironsand? It is not in a truly hot or full sun site (it’s in the bush). What guidance would you give?

A. The LRV of the colour is 10. If you apply a coat of Resene Wood Primer and two coats of the CoolColour™ version of Ironsand, you will get more heat reflection than the same topcoat colour made with non-cool pigmentation, but the surface however, will not be cool to touch. If there is no direct sunlight falling on the Glulam, the issue of colour may not be of great concern compared to Glulam, subject to the full effects of the weather.

November 2017

Q. We are painting the outside of our house. There is some replacement cedar that has been up about a year. We have used Resene Wood Primer on this. Do we need another undercoat or can we go straight to topcoat?

A. You should be able to apply any Resene exterior waterborne topcoat directly.

November 2017

Q. Would Resene Armourcote 512 be suitable for refinishing a polyester epoxy, kayak hull and deck?

A. The answer is a definite no - our suggestion is after thoroughly degreasing and a sand of the surface, apply a full coat of Resene Armourcote 221 and finish with two coats of Resene Uracryl 403.

November 2017

Q. I maintain a property with a block wall. This wall is also the side of the house with the blocks exposed on the inside. Moisture is getting into the blocks, which is in turn, getting into the house. The flashings have been replaced, but the blocks themselves are tracking moisture internally. I have removed a small fence that was attached and need to remove the bolt holes, and seal.
What paint system do you recommend to seal these blocks? I will wire brush the existing paint, but assume some will remain attached.

A. The system we recommend is the Resene X-200 system.

The application of the full system will give a weathertight, but not a watertight, acrylic membrane. You should also check all pointing, to ensure that there are no faults that will allow water ingress.

November 2017

Q. Can I use Resene Non Skid Deck and Path on floor tiles? The tiles are in good condition on an external patio. The tiles are ceramic and they are glazed but with a non-slip finish. They are about 40 years old.

A. Apply an adhesion coat of Resene Waterborne Smooth Surface Sealer to the cleaned tiles and leave to dry for 48 hours, and then apply two coats of Resene Non-Skid Deck & Path.

November 2017

Q. Why can’t Quick Dry be tinted?

A. Addition of tinters can affect the performance properties of a primer, for this reason, our long standing policy has been not to tint a primer.

November 2017

Q. Do you have paint which is safe for babies to chew? I want to paint a cot.

A. We recommend using Resene Environmental Choice paints such as Resene Lustacryl  for this application; allow the paint to dry for two weeks, and then wipe down with warm water and a cloth, rinsing the cloth often before putting the cot back into use.

November 2017

Q. I am looking at a product to go over natural Shadowclad®. I want to achieve a flat look that resembles the appearance of a stain to show natural wood textures. What should I use? I want to use a charcoal black.

A. Resene Woodsman Pitch Black CoolColour™ would be our recommendation; two coats are required. Note that while the strain is semi-transparent from a distance the colour may well look like a solid colour.

November 2017

Q. I have to paint a previously painted entry/decking; what paint do you recommend please? It has been painted - not stained – and needs a new colour, something that will take general wear and tear.

A. Resene Walk-on would be our recommendation, if overcoating a sound unknown paint type clean down, sand then apply a full coat of Resene Quick Dry before application of the Resene Walk-on coats.

November 2017

Q. I have had my concrete roof tiles waterblasted. Quite a bit of the glazing has come off to expose the concrete. I wish to repaint eventually but I understand they will need sealing first? What product/products should I use?

A. Use Resene Sureseal for sealing bare concrete priming.

November 2017

Q. Is it safe to sleep in a room that has been painted that day?

A. If a solventborne paint has been used, then no. While waterborne paints are low VOC (volatile organic compounds) the rate of removal of these from the room air space depends on temperature and ventilation. To be safe, I would say ensure good ventilation and heating, and allow 24 hours before reoccupying the room for sleeping.

November 2017

Q. I have a building to paint. It is a mixture of aluminium siding, with some concrete breeze block. I have estimated it at 50sqm walls, with 30sqm of awnings and I’m assuming it will need two coats. What type of paint would be best?

A. Scrub down using Resene Roof and Metal Wash diluted and used to label directions. Apply a coat of Resene Galvo-Prime and two coats of Resene Summit Roof. I recommend application of the CoolColour™ version of the topcoat colour, if available.

November 2017

Q. Do you have paint that is coloured and can be applied to the back of a clear glass, splashback?

A. To get the same colour seen through the glass applied to the reverse side, you need low iron glass that has been heat treated.

Clean the glass to be coated, by wiping with methylated spirits and a clean cloth. Do this a couple of times using a different cloth each time.

Then spray Resene Imperite IF 503 tinted to your chosen colour. Allow this to cure overnight then apply a coat of the same product, tinted to a medium grey. The backing colour is to avoid any direct contact of the paint colour on the glass, with the fixing adhesive. The fixing adhesive must be a neutral cure type.

November 2017

Q. One of your technical guys advised on this floor a year or two ago and was very helpful. It has had damage from the earthquake and now needs ripples smoothed out, and recoating.

All I can tell you is that, there is a two part water based epoxy on the floor now (concrete floor). It is a question of what will be suitable to go on the floor now and the preparation needed, without being over the top.

A. Thanks for confirming the floor paint type - when the existing paint type is known, then it does make it easier to give advice on an appropriate prep and paint system.

Clean down the existing paintwork, using Resene Interior Paintwork Cleaner, and then thoroughly sand the existing coating to achieve a mechanical profile for the new paint system.

Then apply the Resene Aquapoxy for Flooring system. If you don’t need the anti-slip properties, then you can omit addition of the SRG Grit to the second coat.

November 2017

Q. We have a stone chip coating, steel tile roof. No rust, but it has started to fade and I don’t think it has ever been painted.

Can you please give advice as to what products you would recommend? I'm guessing standard, steel roof paint will not be sufficient, due to the stone chip coating.

The stone chip is embedded in a bitumen base, but some has more stone chip than others.

A. If this is the standard of the existing roof system over the whole roof then clean down with Resene Roof and Metal Wash diluted and used to label directions. Then apply a full coat of Resene Galvo-Prime and two coats of Resene Summit Roof in the CoolColour™ version of the selected colour if available.

November 2017

Q. I have a brass lamp base. Is it possible to paint it and if so, what prep is best please?

A. Apply a coat of Resene Vinyl Etch, then apply two coats of a Resene waterborne enamel topcoat.

November 2017

Q. We want to find a suitable non-slip paint coating, for a wheelchair test ramp. The surface of the ramp will be made of plywood.

A. Resene Non-Skid Deck & Path has the best wet slip resistance of our waterborne paints, and can be applied to any appropriately primed substrate. Use Resene Wood Primer and then Resene Quick Dry as the undercoat.

November 2017

Q. I have a particle/chipboard flooring that will be carpeted. I would like to seal the particle board to prevent any liquid spills from seeping through into the particle board.

A. We recommend two or more coats of Resene Polythane.
