StudX is formulated to penetrate into the timber, therefore it is not recommended for use over water based paint. However StudX will adhere to water based paint.
We have a special StudX formulation designed for painted surfaces (water based). Contact Us to discuss.
Confirm the existing paint is water based:
- Apply methylated spirits to a rag that is a different colour to the paint.
- Hold the rag against the paint for a minute
- Rub the surface and check for colour transfer to the rag. If the colour transfers the existing paint is water based & can be painted over with StudX Full Body.
- See Adhesion Test
- StudX cannot be used over enamel paints unless an enamel primer is applied prior.
