How can we help?
We get asked this often, the answer is yes, absolutely! Whilst ingesting paint is never recommended, like babies with furniture, animals will chew timber frames, it’s what they do. As a zero VOC paint, Ecolour is the perfect choice for using on animal cages and bee hives. We recommend Econamel in either a Satin or Gloss finish (depending on the look you are after).
Tips – check first if old paint is oil-based enamel first (all water based paints can have issues adhering to oil-based paint without proper preparation). Oil-based paint will require light sand, wipe down and a coat of Zinsser Smart Prime before applying 2 coats of Econamel. If old paint is water-based, just a light sand and wipe down plus 2 coats of Econamel.
