    When adding an anti mould additive to paint like vc175, should this be added to only the top final coat or all finishing coats?

    I have done my mist coat and now plan to do two top finishing coats.

    Have never used this additive but would say yes it would be added to all further coats

    Thanks. Any particular additive you would recommend?

    Only reason I got the VC175 was because I seen it mentioned here a few times and Owatrol seems to be a reliable brand.

    I've added just to top coat on tight jobs but imo follow spec and half bottle of vc175 to 5lt and mix in. Wooden spoon in a drill works well to mix. Going to work the best that way

    Look at using Dulux Trade Mouldshield...then get a mortgage to pay for it.
