You can apply Oil Bound Distemper to a variety of different surfaces found internally, primarily to walls and ceilings. Properly prepared plastered walls, concrete surfaces, brickwork surfaces, and asbestos surfaces are among the best substrates in which to apply this product to, as it dries to form a hard finish. This coating is ideal for use on inclement surfaces, which means a surface that will change or vary in condition or temperature easily. The coating works to battle against the inclement surface and maintain is natural performance regardless of the state of the wall or ceiling.

The History of Oil Bound Distemper

One of the main properties of Oil Bound Distemper is that it contains rabbit skin glue. This substance is a traditional natural adhesive. Adhesion is a vital property for any long lasting paint coating. For any internal paint, it is also important that the natural appearance is maintained. This paint will not flake, blister, or crack when exposed to difficult conditions. In old Victorian buildings, conditions can often become wet and cold when exposed to differing humidities. This is due to the buildings often being constructed without a damp proof membrane.

Oil Bound Distemper has become increasingly popular over the last couple of decades. This is as Victorian building owners seek to restore the walls and furniture to their original state. With a soft-matt finish, users can apply this product with a brush or roller. Apply two coats to ensure the perfect finish.
