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.

Project of the Month – September 2018

Bacons is an 18th century farm cottage near Maldon, Essex, named after its original owners. Over the years the cottage has seen various alterations and outbuildings added which consist of a conservatory, garage and office. A nearby brewhouse has also been converted into a dwelling to form part of the estate. Lewis Harrington, Managing Director of Harridec was approached by the client after viewing their website and were confident they were the company for the job after seeing evidence of similar projects that they have undertaken in the area. On inspection, it was evident that the timber elements of the building were in an extremely bad condition due to exposure to the elements and neglect over many years. Extensive repair work was undertaken to restore the oak windows. Firstly, they were stripped of failed clear varnish by mechanically sanding 40G, 80G, 120G and finally 240G. The water stains were removed with Owatrol Net-Trol wood cleaner and colour restorer, followed by 1 coat Sikkens Cetol HLS Plus and two coats Sikkens Cetol Filter 7 Plus in light oak.
