Preparation & Prime†

  • Countersink nailheads, fill and sand smooth. Remove rust, loose or peeling paint. Repair imperfections and sand smooth.
  • Wash off dirt, grease and chalk with detergent and/or powerwash. Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain removing product.
  • Clean and sand new or weathered wood. Scuff sand or degloss smooth or glossy surfaces.
  • Scuff sand or etch metals. Rinse and allow to dry.
  • Caulk windows, doors and other openings. Allow new stucco, plaster and masonry to cure for 30 days before painting.
  • Use BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® paint as a primer for repaired or uncoated surfaces, including woods that contain tannins (two primer coats required for redwood and cedar) and heavily stained areas.
  • Lock in stains with the first primer coat; if necessary, apply a second primer coat of BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA.
  • For drastic color changes or when applying deep colors denoted with a dagger (†) on the color chip, apply a tinted primer coat of BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA if needed.

Application

  • Apply product on dry substrates when air and surface temperatures are between 35°-90°F (2°-32°C) and will remain between 35°-90°F (2°-32°C) for at least 4 hours after applying.
  • Do not paint when rain or heavy condensation is expected.
  • Stir paint occasionally. Intermix containers of same product to ensure color and sheen uniformity.
  • On semi-smooth surfaces, use a high quality 3/8-1/2” nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer (.015-.021” spray tip, 60 mesh filter).
  • On rough surfaces, use a high quality 3/4-1” nap roller cover.
  • Do not thin if using a roller or brush; however, if using a sprayer and thinning is required, thin with water at a rate of no more than 1/2 pint per gallon.
  • Certain colors may require more than one coat for complete hide.
  • On heavy stains and woods that contain tannins, allow 12-16 hours of dry time between coats. Cooler temperatures or higher humidity may prolong drying time.
  • After 4 weeks, cured paint film may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent.
  • Dry paint film is mildew resistant.
  • When applying to vinyl, color choice must be the same color or lighter than the existing color. Do not use on floors.
