Product Usage

Where to UseBlank space if empty.

Use on high humidity areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, powder rooms, and laundry rooms. †. Not recommended for floors.

 

Surface Preparation†Blank space if empty.

The following steps are recommended for product performance.

  • All surfaces must be clean, dry, free of dust, chalk, oil, grease, wax, polish, loose or peeling paint, rust and all other foreign substances.
  • If washing is necessary, use a non-soapy detergent or a TSP substitute, rinse well and allow to dry.
  • Peeling or Checked Paint: Scrape off loose paint and sand to a smooth surface. Glossy Surfaces: For maximum adhesion, scuff sand the surface thoroughly before priming.*
  • †Mold or Mildew Covered Surfaces: This product is designed to prevent mold and/or mildew from forming and contaminating the primer film before topcoat is applied. Although it is designed to be applied directly to mold and mildew prone surfaces, any existing mold and/or mildew on the surface should be removed before priming and painting. This will ensure best results. Wash the area with a mildew remover, rinse with water and allow to dry before priming.
  • Masonry, Brick and Plaster: KILZ MOLD & MILDEW Primer may be used on clean, dry, aged masonry surfaces. New masonry must be allowed to cure (dry) at least 30 days before applying KILZ MOLD & MILDEW Primer.
  • Fire Restoration: Not recommended. Primer Recommendations: KILZ® ORIGINAL, KILZ® ORIGINAL INTERIOR/EXTERIOR, and KILZ® RESTORATION.

 

*WARNING. If you scrape, or remove old paint, you may release lead dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. Contact the National Lead Information Center at 1800-424-LEAD or logon to www.epa.gov/lead.

ApplicationBlank space if empty.
  • Eye protection is recommended. For spray applications, a small amount of water (no more than 1/2 pint per gallon) may be added. Do not thin for stainblocking applications.
  • Only apply if surface, air, and product temperatures are between 50°-90°F (10°-32°C). Stir thoroughly before and occasionally during use. Apply using a brush, roller or sprayer.
  • Brush – High quality Nylon/Polyester.
  • Roller – High quality 3/8-1/2" nap on smooth surfaces or 1/2-3/4" nap on semi-rough or porous surfaces.
  • Airless spray – .017-.021" tip / 60 mesh filter.
  • Prime the entire surface to ensure a uniform appearance of the topcoat.
  • Stainblocking: After priming, test for stain bleed-through by applying the topcoat to a small section. If the stain bleeds through the topcoat, apply a second coat of primer and test again before topcoating the entire area. If bleeding continues, longer dry time is needed before top-coating.
  • Tinting: KILZ MOLD & MILDEW Primer may be tinted with up to 2 ounces of universal colorant per gallon. Tinting to a lighter shade than the topcoat is recommended.
  • Coverage: 300-400 sq. ft. (27.87-37 m2) per gallon depending on the application method and surface porosity.
