Surface 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. Plaster, concrete, and masonry surfaces must be completely dry, free
of efflorescence, and allowed to cure for 30 days prior to painting. When applied to an uncoated substrate or to bare wood, two coats are required with the first coat acting as the primer. Uncoated substrates, repaired surfaces, or lightly stained areas may require additional coats. For severe stains, water marks, and other challenging conditions, such as bare metal or chalky surfaces, use an appropriate specialty 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. Follow these instructions to control exposure to other hazardous substances
that may be released during surface preparation.
CONCRETE: New concrete should cure for at least 30 days and preferably 90 days prior to painting. The pH of the substrate must be less than
10 before painting.
CONCRETE/MASONRY BLOCK: Mortar should cure for at least 30 days and preferably 90 days prior to painting. Fill block with an appropriate block filler. Surfaces previously coated with water thinned cement-based paint must be prepared with extra care. If the material appears to be adhering tightly, a masonry sealer may be applied to seal the surface. Check adhesion by applying a piece of masking tape. If the sealer peels
off and has loose particles, remove all chalking or crumbling material, re-seal and re-check adhesion.
FERROUS METAL: The surface must be cleaned thoroughly to remove any dust, rust, and surface contaminants, and then primed.
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, prior to painting the substrate.
PLASTER: Plaster, hardcoat, skim coat, or other alkaline surfaces should be allowed to cure for at least 30 days prior to painting.
WOOD: Unpainted wood or wood in poor condition should be sanded smooth, wiped clean. Any knots or resinous areas must be primed before painting. Countersink all nails, putty flush with surface.
How To Use This Interior Paint:
Stir thoroughly. Apply with a high-quality brush, roller (nap size – 3/8" for smooth surfaces and up
to 3/4" for rough or textured surfaces), paint pad, or by spray equipment. For airless spray application, use tip size .015" to .021" and pressure range of 1500 to 2000 psi. When using more than one container of the same color, intermix to ensure color uniformity. Do not thin.
Stir thoroughly before using and occasionally when in use. When using more than one can of the same color, intermix to ensure color uniformity.
USE WITH ADEQUATE VENTILATION. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. Read all label and Safety Data Sheet (SDS) information prior to use. SDS are available through our web site or by calling 1-800-441-9695.
