Graphenstone - Nevada Ultra Eco Trade Emulsion & Primer also suitable for Mist Coat
Eco Trade Emulsion/White Ceiling Paint. Eco friendly Mist Coat Paint and Primer for new plaster and lime
Nevada Ultra from Graphenstone is an excellent ultra white matt paint used as a cost effective eco Trade Emulsion and bright white ceiling paint. Also for use onto new plasters as a "mist coat" or "primer". It can be used on buildings that require breathable paint finishes as well as in conventional houses.
It can be applied to plaster, gypsum, lime, old paint, prefabricated panels, unlaminated wallpaper, brick or perlite.
Tradespeople might know this type of paint as a "contract matt" as it is perfect for the first coat on bare gypsum plaster. It can be used as an economical priming coat under any of the interior Graphenstone wall paints.
Landlords and people moving home also love Nevada Ultra paint to give white ceilings a spruce up and with virtually no smell it is a win win.
Nevada Ultra can also be used as a final paint finish on interior walls in low traffic areas (2 to 4 coats may be required depending on colour underneath). It is class 2 in washability and therefore does not have the wipability strength of other paints in the Graphenstone Interior range - for example Grafclean.
For exterior use, Nevada should only ever be used as a priming coat under exterior paints within the Graphenstone range.
Please note that due to its weight the 15L size of this product is required to go via pallet for safety therefore costs more to ship.

How to prep walls for painting
See the Nevada Ultra Technical Data Sheet for full details, however in brief:
For all surfaces
- Ensure the substrate is dry, sound and clean.
- If the substrate has salt deposits, brush and apply Graphenstone Neutralysal Premium
- If the substrate contains a high moisture level, apply Graphenstone StopWater Premium
For previously painted walls
- When applying over glossy paint, sand the surface lightly to create a "key".
- Remove flaking and unstable paint. Create a uniform surface with Graphenstone Filler Primer
How to prepare Graphenstone Nevada paint
- Stir and dilute with water to 10-15% of the product weight (150-200 ml of water per litre of product approx.), ensure a homogeneous mixture. Avoid excessive shaking to minimize bubbles.
- Apply 2 or 3 coats evenly by roller, brush or airless spray gun.
- Note: an excess of product by layers can generate micro-cracks.
Pro tip! The minerals in the paint need distributing evenly so if you go back over where you have painted (while you are working on that area and before it has dried) it will help with coverage.
You may also need Brushes or Rollers, Masking Tape and Paint Trays - see our Painting Accessories page.
