Product Usage

Where to Use

For use on interior and exterior surfaces. Not recommended for floors or horizontal surfaces subject to prolonged water contact.

Surface Preparation

The following steps are recommended for product performance.

  • All surfaces must be clean, dry and free of oil, grease, mildew, wax, dust, flaky rust, mill scale, loose paint, chalk and other foreign matter that could interfere with adhesion.
  • If washing is necessary, use a non-soapy detergent or a TSP substitute, rinse well and allow to dry.
  • Remove loose rust, peeling paint and mill scale with a scraper, wire brush or sandpaper.
  • Clean bare metal in accordance with SPC (The Society for Protective Coatings) specifications for the proper surface preparation of metal surfaces.
  • Peeling or Checked Paint: Scrape off loose paint and sand to a smooth surface. Sanding or removal of paint containing lead is hazardous.
  • Mold or Mildew Covered Surfaces: Wash the area with a mildew remover, rinse with water and allow to dry before priming.
  • While KILZ ADHESION Primer is formulated to bond without sanding, it is recommended that a small area be tested for adhesion prior to beginning the job.
Application
  • Wear eye protection.
  • 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 – .015-.021 tip / 60 mesh filter @ 2,500–3,200 PSI
  • For spray applications, a small amount of water (no more than ½ pint per gallon) may be added.
  • Only apply if surface, air, and product temperatures are between 50°-90°F (10°-32°C).
  • Stir thoroughly before and occasionally during use.
  • Prime the entire surface to ensure a uniform appearance of the topcoat.
  • Finishing: Topcoat within 30 days to prevent contamination of the primer before painting.
  • Tinting: May be tinted with up to 2 oz. (60 mL) of universal colorant per gallon. Tinting to a lighter shade than the topcoat is recommended.
  • Coverage: 300-400 sq. ft. (28-37 m2) per gallon depending on the application method and surface porosity.
Dry Time @ 77°F (25°C), 50% RH
  • Dries to touch in 30 minutes
  • Recoat after 1 hour
  • Lower temperatures, higher humidity, poor ventilation or heavy application can significantly increase dry and recoat times.
