Do NOT use rubber gloves as soft rubber will react and become sticky when in contact with the coatings.


Applicator Pads

Supplied only in 480mL Medium and 960mL Large sized kits. 
Used to apply either Ev
erbrite Protective Coating  or Protectaclear Coating
A durable sponge encased in smooth cloth fabric for easy and smooth application on wide areas such as  garage doors, gutters and around round fence poles and banisters, guttering etc. 
Applicator pads can be wrapped in aluminium foil for short term protection to remain flexible as once the Applicator Pad dries out it loses its flexibility and cannot evenly distribute coating to the surface.    
Do not use plastic film to wrap. Discard pads after the job is finished.

Sponge Brush

Supplied in all sized EVERBRITE PROTECTIVE COATING kits. 
Only use with Everbrite Protective Coating
For narrow profiles you can use a sponge brush although these tend to go soft after 2 or 3 windows. A sample is included in the kit. Extras are available from craft / hardware stores. Sponge brushes can be wrapped in aluminium foil for very short term protection.
Do not use plastic film to wrap. Discard sponge brushes after they go soft.

Synthetic Paint Brush   

Supplied in the Medium 480mL and Large 960mL sized EVERBRITE PROTECTIVE COATING kits. 
Provides a high Performance finish for 
Everbrite Protective Coating 
If you are coating a lot of joinery we recommend using the Rota Cota Easy Clean Edger 25mm synthetic paint brush.
This high performance brush makes application fast and provides a superb finish, This brush is now provided in the medium and large Everbrite kits.
You will require Xylene Solvent to clean the brush after each use. Extra Rota Cota paint brushes and Xylene Solvent are available from Bunnings.
Extensive testing across a range of synthetic and natural bristle brushes showed that this brush was the best performer for applying Everbrite Coating.
NOTE: Other Synthetic brush types were incompatible and Natural bristle brushes tend to pick up too much coating.

Sponge Wedges

Supplied in all Protectaclear Kits.  Only use with Protectaclear Coating 
Provided in Protectaclear kits for small items. e.g. jewellery, door knobs, handles and for touch ups of any missed areas.
Discard sponge wedges after the job is finished.

Natural Bristle Paint Brushes
