FX Australia® Product Information
FX Zing™ is a thoroughly modern, water-based, tintable, liquid paste. Its pin-prick metallic particles produce a subtle overall sparkle that adds fun and individuality to contemporary domestic and commercial environments. FX Zing™ is hardwearing and washable, excellent in high-traffic areas where durability is important, and produces a variety of creative finishes, depending on application method.
Ease of application
FX Zing™ produces a variety of special effects on interior surfaces such as plaster, plasterboard, iron, cement, trims, doors, furniture and timber.
All surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and free of dirt, dust, grease, loose or flaking paint, and loose surface plaster. Efflorescence or mould on masonry or concrete surfaces must be treated. Flatten gloss surfaces by thoroughly sanding and wipe clean with a damp cloth.
Best results are achieved when surfaces are properly prepared and smooth.
Apply FX Lemon Tree Creek® Sealer Undercoat as required. Then for ease of application, apply a base coat of FX Lemon Tree Creek® Semi-Gloss, tinted as closely as possible to selected FX Zing™ colour.
Stir contents thoroughly before use with a broad, flat stirrer, using an upward action.
Use a 100 mm roller, not a brush, on areas to be ‘cut in’. Apply the first coat by roller after ‘cutting in’.
Ensure the roller is very soft with nap between 12 mm– 20 mm. The second coat may be applied by roller or a 100 mm brush, using a criss-cross motion. Different textures and effects may be achieved using a sponge, spatula or spray
Ensure the first coat is completely dry before applying the next coat.
