Dulux Trade Diamond Eggshell is a tough, durable and attractive mid-sheen finish. By using Diamond Technology from Dulux trade it is 10 times more stain resistant than standard water-based eggshell finishes and 10 times tougher than vinyl silks. Diamond Eggshell is water-based making it quick drying and of low odour compared to solvent-based paints, therefore ideal for use where minimum disruption is important. Diamond eggshell can be used over surfaces previously coated with solvent-based paint. Suitable for interior use on plaster, masonry and wood, stir paint thoroughly before application. Seal new or bare surfaces with a thinned first coat of Dulux trade diamond eggshell (up to 1 part clean water to 10 parts paint). The normal finishing process is two full coats of diamond eggshell, but on previously painted surfaces in good condition where a similar colour is used, 1 coat may be sufficient. Coverage up to 16m2 per litre. Cleaning up after use, remove as much paint as possible from brushes or rollers before cleaning with clean water.
