Customer Questions
1. can this be used over existing water based paint without sanding to bare wood? 2. do brushes need to be cleaned with thinners?

We recommend that you lightly sand the surface to create a good key for the paint. If the existing paint is sound, no primer is required. When cleaning your brushes, we suggest turps or white spirits.

Is there a Dulux colour called shire horse?
Yes, there is a Dulux colour called 'Shire Horse 263', to order simply enter the name in the colour finder before adding it to your cart online.
What would be the best base coat for the ultimate opaque oil based varnish? I was thinking of using Dulux aluminium wood primer as an undercoat. It is currently stain varnish on the wood(softwood)

We recommend sanding down the existing varnish before applying the Dulux Trade Ultimate Opaque Woodstain or alternatively, applying Zinnser BIN Primer first to ensure adhesion. 

Can I have this made into the Ral colour I want?
Yes, we can tint Dulux Trade Ultimate Opaque into any colour including RAL. Simply enter 'RAL' followed by the relevant shade number and our team will tint to order.
My wood is treated, do I still need to sand the it before applying Dulux Trade Ultimate Opaque?
For optimum adhesion, we always recommend raising the grain slightly using a light abrasive.
Can Dulux Exterior Ultimate Opaque be applied by roller? Your web-site says this is OK but the Dulux literature suggests brush only. If a roller is OK - what type of roller do you suggest.

Dulux Trade Ultimate Opaque can be applied using a brush or roller. If using a roller, we would recommend a short pile or flocked roller or a kit like the Axus Wood Finish Kit.
