Timonox Overcoats

Previously in this blog series, we have looked at the basecoats and finishes (acrylic eggshell and the matt finishes). We will now take a look at the additional protection that is available in the range.

Of the Timonox Range, Timonox Anti-Graffiti is the most common overcoat applied, as it creates a scrubbable flame retardant layer in an eggshell finish and it is non-sacrificial. Please note that it can only be used over Timonox Vinyl Matt.

Key facts:

  • Only 1 coat is needed to provide adequate fire protection
  • It usually dries after 2 hours of application
  • The glaze is clear, although it may produce a slight change to the chosen Vinyl Matt colour.
  • It is solvent-free
  • Brush or roller application

Timonox Clear Top is the other topcoat in the range. If you would like to create a gloss finish, then this paint could work well for you, to preserve the underlying paint. It also creates an anti-graffiti layer in a single-coat application; however, the glaze is sacrificial and has a lower spreading rate.

Key facts:

  • It can only be applied over Timonox Acrylic Eggshell
  • It is water-borne
  • Application by brush or roller
  • Spreading rate up to 10m²
  • It usually dries after 4 hours of application
  • Clear glaze
  • Paint in poor condition must be stripped before applying this product, unless Timonox Bonding Primer is used
