Preparation† (Proper surface preparation is required.)Blank space if empty.
  • For failing coatings or to remove loose wood fibers, use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® No. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper followed by BEHR PREMIUM No. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner to neutralize the wood.
  • When No. 64 is not needed, a product such as No. 63 MUST be used to remove mill glaze and clean the wood surface. After using either No. 64 or No. 63, rinse thoroughly with a garden hose or pressure washer. When rinsing with a pressure washer, use the broadest spray pattern while keeping the nozzle at least 24" away from the surface.
  • Allow the area to dry at least 24 hours before coating.
  • Lightly sand to remove remaining wood fibers/fuzz. See behr.com for additional product information.
