Paint Guide

Your safety is our top priority, so please follow our guidance below to prevent accidents.

Protect yourself using the right equipment to avoid skin or eye contact:

  • Cap or hat
  • Dust or face mask
  • Gloves
  • Boiler suit
  • Glasses or goggles

Good Practice

  • Always read the health and safety advice on our labels.
  • Avoid solvents on your skin. Solvent wiping will degrease your skin and can
    lead to dermatitis. In case of fire, use a CO2 extinguisher or sand. Water will
    spread the solvent and the fire.
  • Always work in ventilated areas. Allow plenty of airflow when painting as the build up
    of solvent can cause sleepiness and nausea. Wear a suitable respirator if in doubt.
  • Wet sand anti-foulings because the dust is toxic.
  • Do not eat or smoke when handling paint.
  • Handle cans with care and keep sealed. Dispose of waste paint at a recycle centre.
