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.
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.
Apply only when air, product, and surface temperatures are between 50°F (10°C) and 90°F (32°C).
Normally dries to touch in one hour at 77°F (25°C) and 50% relative humidity. Allow four hours before
recoating. Drying times listed may vary depending on temperature, humidity, color, film build, and air movement. Wait at least 30 days after painting before cleaning the surface with a non-abrasive, mild cleanser. Very deep colors may require longer to fully cure.
One gallon will cover about 300 to 400 sq. ft. (28 to 37 sq. meters) per U.S. gallon (3.78 L) on primed, smooth,
nonporous surfaces. Coverage figures do not include material loss due to surface irregularities and porosity, or material loss due to application method or mixing. Some colors, drastic color changes, or porous surfaces may require more than one coat to achieve a uniform finish.
Clean tools with warm, soapy water.
