General Information

Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be clean, sound and dry prior to application.

For application on papered, flaky or distempered surfaces, remove previous decorative material and seal, using Wondertex stabaliser.


Slowly add Premier 5 to hot, warm or cold water at about 1kg per pint (approx.­500ml). Stir in briskly and leave for a few minutes. Mix to the required consistency by adding more. Always leave Premier 5 to stand for a few minutes before application. Do not use below 3oC.

Application and fixing

Apply liberally in one metre strips with brush or roller across the ceiling width or from top to bottom of walls. Texture an area of appro­ximately one square metre at a time while still wet. Working time is up to 15 minutes.

Caulking and texturing

Caulk out taping and pre-caulking with caulk tool. After appro­ximately 2 hours, apply texture coat with a laying on brush or lambswool roller and pattern to required design. Leave to dry completely for 5 days, apply a mist coat and full coat of good quality emulsion paint for the perfect finish.

Should weather or site conditions cause uneven drying, any resulting colour irre­gula­rities can be treated simply by painting over with an almond white emulsion diluted with 25% water.

Where texturing may be delayed for an unusually long period, sealing should be carried out as soon as possible – particularly if the weather is hot and dry. To produce a surface of uniform porosity the recommended method is to carry out taping, pre-caulking, caulking and texturing as a one-day operation.


Recommended shelf life 12 months. Store in dry conditions.
