Through the use of shiny pigments these paints have a sensational shiny and long-lasting color. They cover the surface very well and fill cavities, create strong, adherent coating. These enamels are suitable for renovating bathtubs, sanitations, for sinks, wash basins, shower trays, ceramic tiles. In addition, they can also be used on other surfaces such as ceramic, wood, laminate surfaces (boats, yachts, aircraft), stainless steel and aluminum, as well as to cover plastic elements. Paints are designed to cover the surface over the the water line and below the waterline, internal and external.

Before application of enamel, the surface should be sanded, dried and greased. There is no need for sanding between coats if further layer of paint is applied within 24 hours. As maintenance coating, enamel can be applied to well-adherent coatings, formed on the basis of other two-component paints (polyurethane Epoxy Resin), or directly on the degreased surfaces.

The enamel should be applied with a brush, a roller, or a pistol. The surface should be painted preferably at about 20 degrees Celsius. This temperature is suitable for drying enamel well. Drying time also depends on the humidity and density of the product. Painting should be done in a well ventilated room. Unpainted areas should be protected first, and then apply the enamel.
