Preparation & Prime

  • Remove loose paint, wash off any dirt and grease with detergent, remove mildew stains with a mildew stain removing product.
  • Scuff sand glossy surfaces.
  • Countersink nailheads, repair imperfections and sand smooth.
  • Remove all dust with a damp cloth, allow to dry.
  • Allow new stucco, plaster and masonry to cure for 30 days before priming.
  • Make sure that there are no active water problems and that any previous water damage is fully dry.
  • Use BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® STAIN-BLOCKING CEILING PAINT as a primer for repaired or uncoated surfaces.
  • Lock in stains with BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA STAIN-BLOCKING CEILING PAINT as a spot primer. For heavy stains, test for stain bleedthrough by applying BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA STAIN-BLOCKING CEILING PAINT as a topcoat to a small section. If the stain bleeds through the topcoat, spot prime another coat to the stained area and test again before topcoating the entire ceiling. If bleeding continues, a longer dry time is needed before topcoating. Additional coats may be needed to achieve hide.
  • For drastic color changes, apply a primer coat of BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA STAIN-BLOCKING CEILING PAINT if needed.

Application

  • Use product when the surface and air temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-32°C).
  • Stir paint occasionally. Intermix containers of same product to ensure color and sheen uniformity.
  • Use a high quality 3/8-1/2” nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer (.015-.019” spray tip, 60 mesh filter).
  • Popcorn style acoustic ceilings; use acoustic ceiling roller cover (1/2-3/4” nap) or airless sprayer (.015-.019” spray tip, 60 mesh filter).
  • Coverage is 250-400 sq. ft. (23-37 m2) per gallon depending on the surface texture, porosity and application method.
  • 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.
  • Multiple coats may be required to complete hide.

Dry Time

  • Dries to touch in 30 minutes at 77°F (25°C) and 50% humidity, re-coat in 1 hour.
  • Longer dry time required in cooler temperatures and in higher humidity.

Clean Up & Storage

  • Use soap and water.
  • Properly dispose of all soiled rags and protect unused product from freezing.
  • For disposal of empty containers and unused product, contact your local household refuse collection service.
