Torkill Fungicidal Solution (DM405).

Scrub down all weathered surfaces to remove salts, etc. Remove semi-adherent matter, etc. to a firm edge. Repair large holes and cracks using a suitable cementitious mortar.

Bare render, concrete, etc:

Prime porous or friable areas with Torprufe™ WB Stabilising Sealer (RC251) and tight surfaces with a wash coat of Torprufe™ EMF (EM322) (approx. 10-20% water addition). Apply 2 full coats of Torprufe™ EMF (EM322) by brush or roller*.

Previously painted surfaces:

Thoroughly abrade any hard or glossy surfaces and if necessary prime with Aqualife™ TP WSE Primer (E131 31) to promote maximum adhesion.
