How to Prepare and Care for your Paint Pad


Following these easy steps before, during and after using your paint pad will help you achieve impressive results and optimise brush performance, in addition to extending its useful lifespan: 

Before first use: Pre-wash to remove any debris or excess lint from production. For water-base coatings, use water. Leave to dry naturally.

For best results: For-water based paints, pre-wet with water and remove excess for a slightly damp, primed state that will accept more paint. Avoid using water-based and solvent-based coatings with the same pad. Always refer to the coating manufacturer's recommendations before starting application.

Cleaning: Do not use white spirit, paint stripper, or cellulose thinners for cleaning. †Wash with a suitable thinner. For water-based coatings, use water. Leave to dry naturally. Never soak, use hot water, apply direct heat, or put chemicals in drains.

Storage: Once dry, place your paint pad in a protective cover* and store in a dry, dust-free place to keep it in top condition for your next project.
