Owatrol Easy Surface Prep

One of the quickest, easiest, and cheapest ways of giving your kitchen a make over is to repaint the cupboards and with Owatrol E.S.P that job can be made even easier! The usual way would be to first clean all the surfaces, strip and/or sand every tiny nook and cranny, apply a coat of primer, and then apply multiple coats of cupboard paint – which although is cheaper than a new kitchen, it is not quick nor easy!  Instead of going through all of that and using up valuable time and effort, you could instead simply use Owatrol Easy Surface Prep (E.S.P for short) and have a new kitchen for a fraction of the effort! What is Owatrol E.S.P? Owatrol E.S.P is an easy-to-use wipe-on wipe-off product that when applied to shiny or non-porous surfaces, primes and preps it for paint in 5 minutes. This means no sanding and no priming as E.S.P creates a strong film allowing paint (oil and water based) to strongly adhere to. E.S.P is particularly great for use on tricky surfaces such as melamine cupboards or tiles.
