Preparation

  • All surfaces must be properly prepared, cleaned and primed on the same day.
  • Remove all loose or peeling paint; wash off chalk, dirt and grease with mild detergent, rinse well and allow to dry.
  • Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain removing product.
  • Scuff sand glossy surfaces and repair imperfections.
  • Remove all loose dust and rust particles with a wire brush and dry cloth.
  • In some cases, scraping or sanding may be needed to allow the primer to adhere.
  • Do not use if surface is structurally unsound or severely deteriorated.

Application

  • Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 40-90°F (4-32°C).
  • Use a high quality 1/4 - 3/8" nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer (.011"-.017" spray tip, 60 mesh filter)
  • Stir primer occasionally.
  • Do not thin if using a roller or brush; however, if using a sprayer and thinning is necessary to maintain workability, thin with clean water at a rate of no more than 1/2 pint per gallon.

Disposal

  • For disposal of empty containers, unused paint and soiled rags, contact your household refuse collection service.
