How do I use Ultra Grip™?
You can apply Ultra Grip™ using a brush, a roller, an applicator pad, or a sponge. No matter what you apply with, be aware that Ultra Grip™ will hold texture and that texture can show through to the final layer of Fusion Mineral Paint. To avoid this, ensure you apply Ultra Grip™ in a very thin layer. The product is milky in the bottle, but should be clear when applied. Let it dry 12-24 hours before painting for best results, but you can paint after 2 hours of application.

When do I use Ultra Grip™?
Ultra Grip™ can be used to make the impossible possible. Use it on surfaces that you can’t sand, such as thermofoil or some laminates, or even really detailed surfaces that are too difficult to scuff. A good way to tell if you need Ultra Grip™ is to paint a test area with just Fusion. If the paint laces or beads, you likely need Ultra Grip™.
Will it dry clear?
Yes it will! This means that if you have a piece you want to distress to show the original finish, but it is too difficult to sand, you can use Ultra Grip™ with no worries.
Is Ultra Grip™ a primer?
Ultra Grip™ is an adhesion primer, so it helps Fusion stick to slippery surfaces. It is not a transition primer, for painting over dark or bright colours. For that we recommend Sterling or another light grey. Ultra Grip™ will also not stop bleed through from tannins or rust. For that, we recommend Zinsser BIN shellac-based primer.

- #FUN FACT – You can use Tung Oil to finish concrete, stone brick and even bamboo!
It penetrates to protect from the inside out. It fills up the spaces in between the grain of wood and dries to a hard water resistant finish. This oil does not leave a surface film that will chip or scratch… how amazing is that?
The oil saturates the wood, seals it from moisture from within. You will never have chipping, flaking or peeling! At least 2 coats are recommended, however the more coats, the more protection. You will want to re-coat every few years as the wood starts to look dull and dry. Re-coating is simple and easy, as you will not have to sand, or removing any peeling/flaking paint, just add oil, like a conditioner
Tung oil is unpolymerized and is all natural drying oil, providing a tough, flexible and highly water-resistant coating. Perfect for furniture, counter tops, interior and exterior wood surfaces. This oil provides a soft lustre with a finish that is unrivalled by many other oils..

HOW TO USE IT
Our no rinse Fusion™ TSP Alternative is a water-based degreaser used to thoroughly clean a painted surface prior to applying paint. Highly efficient, it removes oil, grease, fingerprints, stains and other contaminants, which will improve the adhesion and the look of subsequent coatings.
Mix 2 capfuls into 1L of water. Wash surface with mixture to remove dirt and grease. Keep washing the surface until your rag is no longer removing visible dirt or grease.
Rinsing is not required, however be sure to thoroughly clean your surface and change to a fresh clean rag as needed.
