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. Prime all bare wood, drywall, plaster, masonry, metal and porous surfaces with the appropriate 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.

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, 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.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very thin great for my sprayer Used my power spayer to paint a wicker Chair perfect
Date published: 2017-01-08
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor wall adhesion Takes 3 coats to cover a wall of the same color. Drying time is very long. Second and third coats pull previous coats off the wall even after more than 24 hours drying time. I will never buy this paint again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage and color When I told people I was painting my room red, they were skeptical. No one really wanted to tell me what they thought. I bought the Red Delicious paint color. It took two coats to completely cover the walls which I expected. But I did not expect the transformation the second coat made. I am not finished with the project yet, as I have to do flooring, but I am very happy with the color.
