Colour Boxing

It’s essential to box your tinted product to ensure consistent colour, here’s how…

  • Buy the right amount of tinted product. If unsure ask RTP staff for guidance
  • Check the colour is correct before starting
  • Calculate enough drums to do a wall
  • Mix drums for that wall all together evenly
  • If you apply upstairs, keep the boxed drums for the downstairs wall
  • When you finish the wall, box the leftover with the drums for a new wall
  • Before completing the last wall check you have enough product to finish the job. If you are short, make sure you leave the old drums and box with the new drums purchased. Ratio needs to be 2 old: 1 new.
