Previously Painted Surfaces
Old paint in sound condition: Remove any flaking and loose paint, clean and prime with the appropriate primer (as per the information given above).

Fillercoat must be left to dry for at least 4 hours.
Old paint in poor condition: Completely strip the surface and treat it as new work.
