Product Usage

Where to Use

Use on wood, drywall, plaster, paneling, wallpaper, masonry, brick, painted metal and properly prepared glossy surfaces†. Not recommended for mold or mildew-prone surfaces or on flooring.

 

Surface Preparation†
  • All surfaces must be clean, free of dust, chalk, oil, grease, wax, polish, mold and mildew, loose 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.
  • †Glossy Surfaces: For maximum adhesion, scuff sand the surface thoroughly before priming.*
  • Peeling or Checked Paint: Scrape off loose paint and sand to a smooth surface.*
  • Mold or Mildew Covered Surfaces: Wash the area with a mildew remover, rinse with water and allow to dry before priming.
  • Masonry, Brick, Stucco and Plaster: KILZ ORIGINAL Primer may be used on clean, dry, aged masonry surfaces that have cured (dried) at least 90 days. If masonry has cured less than 90 days, use KILZ® PREMIUM, KILZ 2® or KILZ ORIGINAL LOW ODOR® Primers.
  • Fire Restoration: It is critical to clean smoke damaged surfaces thoroughly before priming.
Application
  • Eye protection is recommended. Do not thin. Stir thoroughly before and occasionally during use.
  • Apply using a brush, roller or sprayer.
  • Use product when painting surface and air temperatures are between 35°F (2°C) and 90°F (32°C).
  • 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-.019 tip / 60 mesh filter
  • Prime 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, a longer dry time is needed before topcoating.
  • Tinting: Up to 2 ounces of universal colorant per gallon. Tinting to a lighter shade than topcoat is recommended. Coverage: 300-400 sq. ft. (28-37 m2) per gallon depending on the application method and surface porosity.
