Details

Area Preparation: 

Surfaces to be coated must be clean and dry. Remove all loose, peeling paint, dirt, grease, and any other surface contaminants. Putty all nail holes and caulk all cracks and open seams. Sand all glossy, rough and patched surfaces. This product is self-priming for previously painted walls and ceilings in good condition. However, when applied to new drywall, two coats are required with the first coat acting as the primer. Uncoated substrates, repaired surfaces, or lightly stained areas may require more than one coat. For severe stains, water marks, and other challenging conditions, use a premium problem solving primer.

WARNING! If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint, you may release lead dust or fumes. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD DUST OR FUMES CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID EXPOSURE. Wear a properly fitted NIOSH-approved respirator and prevent skin contact to control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a HEPA vacuum and a wet mop. Before you start, find out how to protect yourself and your family by contacting the USEPA National Lead Information Hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD or log on to www.epa.gov/lead. In Canada contact a regional Health Canada office. Follow these instructions to control exposure to other hazardous substances that may be released during surface preparation.

GYPSUM WALLBOARD-DRYWALL: Nails or screws should be countersunk, and they along with any indentations should be mudded flush with the surface, sanded smooth and cleaned to remove any dust, then prime prior to painting the substrate.

MASONRY: New masonry should cure for at least 30 days and preferably 90 days prior to priming and painting. The pH of the substrate must be less than 10 before priming with an alkali resistant primer.

PLASTER: Plaster, hardcoat, skim coat, or other alkaline surfaces should be allowed to cure for at least 30 days prior to priming with an alkali resistant primer.

WOOD: Unpainted wood or wood in poor condition should be sanded smooth, wiped clean, then primed. Any knots or resinous areas must be primed before painting. Countersink all nails, putty flush with surface, then prime.

Application: 

Stir thoroughly. When using more than one container of the same color, intermix to ensure color uniformity. Apply when air, product and surface temperatures are 50°F (10°C) or above.
Application Equipment: Apply with a high quality brush, roller or by airless spray equipment.
Airless Spray: For spray application use tip 0.015” - 0.017”
Spray equipment must be handled with due care and in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendation. High-pressure injection of coat- ings into the skin by airless equipment may cause serious injury.
Brush: Polyester/Nylon Brush Roller: 3/8” - 1/2” nap roller cover Thinning: Thinning is not required.

Application Temperature: 

Make sure the air, paint and the surface you are painting are above 35°F.

Dry time @ 77°F (25°C); 50% relative humidity          
To Touch: 30 to 60 minutes
To Recoat: 2 to 4 hours

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faster Drys fast.. great for making sport team razor sharp lines... after two or three coats my project is complete whereas rustoloum i would still be waiting for the first coat to set up
Date published: 2017-05-20
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Way too thin As noted by others the paint is too thin so it is taking at the least 3 coats of paint, we are doing a large project we bought 17 gallons of paint. We are so disappointed with having to use so many coats and we chose eggshell because we didn't want high sheen. Disappointed with wash ability, easily marred.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the paint I expected.. I have used Gledden paint semi-gloss paint in the past to paint my kitchen. I loved the way it went on, the durability of the paint, and the washability of it. So when I recently decided I would redo my bathroom and saw the HD was selling Glidden paint, I decided to use it. Boy what a nightmare! This paint is no way like the paint I bought in the past. I bought the Diamond interior latex paint because it was the superior recommended paint. Wrong! This paint doesn't cover well, having to use two coats, when removing tape the paint peels off, its very thin, nothing like the paint I used in the past. If you brush up against it after it dries it leaves marks on the surface. I will never buy this paint again...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Coverage is poor, paint is very thin and dries VERY fast I purchased 3 gallons of Gliddon Diamond at the suggestion on the HD associate. I had just painted our guest bathroom with Gliddon Complete "Silver Streak" and it was awesome! One coat, no problems! So I agreed to try the Gliddon Diamond paint in raindrop white. Oh, how DISAPPOINTING! It is definitely NOT a one or even a two coat coverage, the paint is incredibly thin and it dried so fast that I could barely get the roller or the brush on the wall before I had to reload the roller/brush (funny enough it didn't dry rapidly in ALL spots though). In all I did 5 coats and I can still see the flat off white paint coming through in spots. Also, when going over a previous coat, the dried paint would come off. Very frustrating to be able to see brush strokes and roller marks. It didn't blend well at all. I watched the girl at the store add the color and put the paint into the "shaker" but when I opened the cans the colorant has separated from the base. I have only seen that happen when paint has sat for long periods of time. Maybe I got a bad batch?!?!?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not a one coat coverage paint I purchased the gliden diamond because i was told it would a one coat coverage paint. It definitely takes 2 coats. With just one coat the white original paint showed through in spots. I would have gone with a cheaper paint than the diamond had i known this before hand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Coverage This paint and primer dodnot even come close to covering with one coat of paint. It will take two or more coats of this product. I would have been better off to prime it first. At least I could paint the second coat fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the coverage & NO odor! I am really impressed with this paint! I have painted many houses and my yoga studio, top to bottom, so I know what works. Glidden Diamond really goes on smooth, has zero odor, extremely easy to clean up (even little mishaps on the wood trim!), and has great coverage ... I only had to paint 1 coat! As I'm painting every room in my house, I'm going to go with this brand for the rest. Saves me time, and that's a big plus! I just wish I'd found it sooner for all my previous projects. (Trattoria Teal is a beautiful cool teal!)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from disappointed with the way that it looks on my walls I found a paint color (Silver Swordplay) that I really like and thought would look great in my family room and kitchen. I went to Home Depot and purchased 3 gallons. I asked for flat paint and was sold flat ENAMEL. I questioned if the flat ENAMEL was the same as flat paint. I was assured that this was the flat paint that Glidden made and that it would dry flat. I had my doubts but trusted the paint department representative. I have now painted for 2 days and am VERY disappointed. This paint does not dry flat as I was told. I am disappointed with the sheen and the roller marks that I can see on my walls. But I do love the color.
