Painting Issue

If your walls have excess moisture issue, the paint will not be able to adhere to the walls.

You'll have to check the moisture content of your walls. If it is too high, we will recommend that you resolve the issue before painting. If the moisture content of the walls is within range, you will have to remove all the peeling paints before applying sealer, followed by top coat.
Our paints do not require any dilution - in order to maintain the optimal performance. Interior wall paints are water-based. We have oil-based wood paint and sealer. The water-based paint, if added with thinner, will spoil the paint. If you add water to water-based paints, the paints cannot keep for long.
Unless the walls are badly stained, water should suffice in cleaning. You may add a little detergent into the water if you want to. We do not advise you to scrub the walls hard as it may affect the paint film adhesion to the walls.
You will have to scrap all the old paint away, clean the surface before applying 1 coat of Aqua Primer Sealer Undercoat.
Thereafter, apply Aqua Bodelac (2 coats) of the colour of your choice.
The painting system recommended here is water-based.
Mould spores can come into your house from the outside through open doorways, open windows or heating and cooling systems with outdoor intakes. Spores can also attach themselves to your clothing or your pets and be brought inside your house. Once inside, mould thrives and grows in moisture rich places, making the bathroom a common place to find mould. Not only does mould look unappealing but inhaling mould spores can cause respiratory problems, especially for people with asthma.

If you have mould at home, you may consider Nippon Anti-Fungus Solution. Apply the product and allow to stand overnight, while allowing the surface to dry thoroughly. Repaint with a fungi-resistant paint, such as Nippon Paint Odour-less All-in-1 (Walls) or Nippon Paint Odour-less Anti-Mould Ceiling White (Ceilings), which provides resistance to fungus.
Hairline cracks are something that not many walls or ceilings can usually escape. To fix hairline cracks, you can either hire a professional who can do it for your very easily or you may choose to do it yourself.

With some filling materials (used to fill the cracks) such as putty, a simple tool (like an old knife) and a scraping tool, "fill" the crack with a “filling solution” and ensure that the filling material adequately transverses in to the insides of the crack. Flatten the surface and allow the crack to dry out for a day or so. Seal the crack using resin materials or drywall tapes. Once sealed, you can cover it up with some fresh paint to match your wall. You may consider using Nippon Paint 3-in-1 Medifresh as it is known for its ability to cover hairline cracks.
There are many possibilities as to why the application of the sealer is uneven. If your current wall is dark coloured, one coat of white sealer will not be sufficient to cover. You can request for a grey sealer from the dealer shop for better coverage over dark coloured wall. 1 coat of water-based sealer, with any further dilution, is sufficient.

Product

All paints come with their distinctive properties.

EasyWash has a Low Sheen which allows washability. It also has Low Odour while not having a anti-bacterial property.

Odourless Medifresh has almost no odour. We give a 5-year warranty on its anti-bacterial property. It has good washability. It also has a Matt finish, which means that it is easy to paint as flaws on the wall will not be as obvious (especially useful for first-time painters and professional painters). Its anti-bacterial property rivals Odourless All in One.
Bodelac 9000 is an enamel paint (oil-based) so the odour is strong. It has higher gloss compared to Aqua Bodelac (a water-based paint) which has low odour and dries faster.

Both Bodelac 9000 and Aqua Bodelac can be applied to wood and metal.
There are many factors that affect the shelf life of a can of paint. An unused can of paint has a shelf life of 18 months from the date of manufacture. For a used can of paint, it depends on the condition it is used and kept.
Timberlac is a tinted varnish that will retain the wood texture whereas Aqua Bodelac is a solid colour paint.
Yes, wall stickers can be used on walls painted with the Easy Wash range. However, the wall should be painted with a proper painting system with sealer such as the Nippon 5101 Odour-less Wall Sealer. This will enhance the adhesion of the paint to the wall thereby preventing issues such as peeling of paint film when you remove the wall stickers.
We currently have 7 types of interior paint in our range - the type of paint depends on your needs.

The specific characteristics & functionalities of each paint differentiates it from the others. For example, the Nippon Paint Odour-less EasyWash provides stain resistance & easy stain removal and is completely odourless, which is ideal for people sensitive or allergic to paint odour. The paint also has a soft sheen finish. On the other hand, Vinilex 5000 has low odour and has a matte finish. The finish itself affects the colour outcome.

We have a Colour Creations machine in almost every dealer shop. This machine allows you to select the colour you like, followed by the product you want the colour to be tinted to. E.g. You like a colour presented on our Odourless range but wants to have it in EasyWash - that is possible using this machine.
