Owatrol Deco is an oil-based multi-surface paint suitable for all surfaces with built-in rust inhibiting qualities. It does not require any priming or undercoating before use. With Owatrol Oil technology, Owatrol Deco provides exceptional corrosion protection and excellent resistance to the effects of weathering and pollution. You can apply it directly to rusted surfaces as it penetrates down to the sound metal, providing long-lasting protection and extending the lifetime of the treated surface.

Why should I use Owatrol Deco?

Owatrol Deco is a truly multi-surface paint, adhering strongly to all surfaces including plastic, wood, ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

It gives a high gloss finish which is extremely flexible and so will not peel or flake making it perfect for use on flexible surfaces like plastics and uPVC.

Owatrol Deco delivers an exceptional oil-based finish whilst maintaining very low VOC levels and is suitable for interior and exterior use including in confined spaces as it doesn’t emit harmful fumes.

It is available in 6 different finishes and is very easy to use. Best of all, you do not need to use a primer or undercoat.

  • First the surfaces must be clean, dry and free from oil, grease and other surface contaminants.
  • Remove any mill scale; loose and flaking rust and old paint back to a sound surface and edge.
  • Lightly rusted surfaces should be lightly wire brushed and any sharp edges should be feathered in.
  • Surfaces which are exposed to chemicals (acids, alkalis or salt deposits) should be washed using water or steam cleaned.
  • Severely contaminated surfaces should be cleaned using an appropriate solvent.
  • Abrade any new wood surfaces with 120 grit paper to open the wood’s pores and dust it off. Wash with denatured alcohol (methylated spirits) to remove any sanding residue.
  • Oily, resinous and greasy woods should be thoroughly degreased with denatured alcohol (methylated spirits), acetone or similar solvent based product.

Application of Owatrol Deco Multi-Surface Paint

Metal Surfaces

New surfaces excluding galvanized surfaces: apply 2 coats of Owatrol Deco allowing drying time between coats.

New Galvanized surfaces: first prime the surface with Owatrol Oil and allow to dry for 24 hours. Then apply 2 coats of Owatrol Deco allowing drying time between coats.

Clean, lightly rusted or new unpainted rusty steel: Apply 2 coats of Owatrol Deco allowing drying time between coats.

Old severely rusted surfaces: Apply wet on wet applications of Owatrol Oil until the rust is fully saturated and allow to dry (Saturation is indicated by a uniform glossy appearance to the surface when the Owatrol Oil is dry). Apply 2 coats of Owatrol Deco allowing drying time between coats.

Previously coated surfaces: spot prime all exposed metal with Owatrol oil or Owatrol Deco depending on the severity of the rust and allow to dry then continue applying Owatrol Deco, allowing drying time between coats to bring level with the existing finish. Now apply 2 coats of Owatrol Deco over the entire area allowing drying time between coats.

Wooden surfaces

New surfaces: Apply 2 coats of Owatrol Deco allowing drying time between coats.

Damaged, soft, punky or porous wood surfaces: Prime with Owatrol Oil and allow to dry. Apply 2 coats of Owatrol Deco over the entire area allowing drying time between coats.

Previously coated surfaces: Spot prime all exposed surfaces with Owatrol Oil or Owatrol Deco depending on the condition and porosity of the wood and allow to dry then continue applying Owatrol Deco allowing drying time between coats to bring level with the existing finish. Now apply 2 coats of Owatrol Deco over the entire area allowing drying time between coats.

Other Surfaces (plastic, expanded polystyrene, tiles…)

Apply 2 coats of Owatrol Deco over the entire area allowing drying time between coats. For previously coated surfaces spot prime any bare areas with Owatrol Deco to bring level with the existing finish. Then finish with 2 coats of Owatrol Deco to the entire area allowing drying time between coats.

Maintenance

Maintenance is easy and frequency will depend on the conditions that the coated surface is exposed use. Thoroughly clean all surfaces to be coated ensuring any oil, grease and other surface contaminants are removed. Then remove all loose and flaking material and feather in any sharp edges. For heavily rusted metal or porous wood surfaces treat first with wet on wet applications of Owatrol Oil until the surface is saturated and allow to dry. Spot prime any exposed or Owatrol Oil treated surface with Owatrol Deco to bring level with the existing finish. Then apply 1 or 2 coats of Owatrol Deco to the entire area to restore the finish.

Clean Up

Clean all tools and equipment with white spirit while still wet. If allowed to dry, remove with paint stripper. Store and maintain equipment as directed by the manufacturer.

NOTE: Any rags, steel wool etc. soaked in Owatrol Deco may spontaneously catch fire if improperly discarded. Rags, steel wool etc. must be saturated with water after use or placed in a sealed, water filled metal container, before disposing with the household waste.
