Details

Area Preparation:

Surface must be clean and dry. Remove all loose, peeling paint, dirt, mildew, grease, oil, chalk, rust, and any other surface contaminants. Repair all moisture problems. Blistering and peeling issues are commonly caused by moisture behind the paint film. Putty all nail holes and caulk all cracks and open seams. Sand all glossy, rough and patched surfaces. The appropriate primer is recommended for all uncoated surfaces and special substrates such as tannin staining wood, new or chalky masonry, and bare metal.

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 prepa- ration.

ALUMINUM AND VINYL SIDING: Siding may present potential adhesion problems. A specialty primer may be required if the original painted surface has degraded to the substrate. Topcoat should be spot applied, allowed to cure overnight, then evaluated for adhesion. If adhesion is good, the application may proceed. Check adhesion by applying a piece of masking tape. When the masking tape is removed, if the coating peels off, the surface must be scuff sanded prior to proceeding to ensure mechanical adhesion. Color selection for vinyl siding is limited. Do not paint vinyl siding with a color darker than the original to prevent potential warping due to heat absorption.

BRICK: New brick and mortar 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. Painting glazed brick is not recommended due to potential adhesion problems.

FIBER CEMENT: Fiber cement composition board may present potential adhesion, alkali burn, and efflorescence problems. New board should be aged for at least 30 days prior to priming and painting. The pH of the substrate must be less than 10 and the moisture content must be less than 12% prior to priming and topcoating. All cracks and open seams should be caulked to prevent water penetration. Pre-primed board from the manufacturer may not be uniformly or completely sealed. A primer coat must be applied to ensure complete and uniform sealing prior to topcoating.

CONCRETE and MASONRY: New concrete and 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.

FERROUS METAL: The surface must be cleaned thoroughly to remove any dust, rust, and surface contaminants, and then primed with the appropriate specialty primer.

STUCCO: New stucco 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. Surface chalk from the curing or aging process should be removed then sealed with an appropriate sealer to rebind and restore the surface to a sound condition.

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 can of the same color, intermix to ensure color uniformity. Two coats are recommended for maximum durability.
Application Equipment: Apply with a high quality brush, roller, paint pad, or by spray equipment. Where necessary, apply a second coat and allow each coat to dry thoroughly before applying the next coat.
Airless Spray: Pressure 2000 psi, tip 0.015” - 0.021”
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” - 3/4” nap roller cover
Thinning: Thinning is not usually required.

Questions and Answers
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor hiding, poor adhesion to PVC trim I used two colors from this line for my front entry: Heron Gray Satin to match Andersen's "Sandtone" storm door for trim, and California Claret Semi-Gloss (gorgeous red) for the front door (brand new, pre-primed fiberglass door w/ PVC trim around the lite). I noticed when painting the trim (wood, with PVC brick-mould) that the paint didn't really want to "grab" on the PVC. The second coat covered. The Heron Gray color did a decent hiding job, requiring only 2 coats. The door was another story. The paint again did not like the PVC lite trim, and even had initial adhesion issues with the pre-primed fiberglass (I did lightly sand it and clean it). The biggest problem was hiding. I had to put down 5 coats before I got a decent finish that wasn't showing white through--and then had to do a 6th coat on some of the detail work. Adding in dry time, this was a beast of a project. And 2 days later, the paint is still fairly soft. I have no idea how long it will take to fully cure where I can remove my protection from the weatherstripping and be confident that opening the door won't tear the paint. Next time, I'll try something else. To be fair, the weather was hot, so I applied it in a shaded garage at 90F ambient. That is right at the top-end of the stated application temp range. I'm not really impressed with how the paint flows out, adheres, and hides. Perhaps I should have sprayed, or perhaps I should have done a couple layers of flat sheen first to enhance the hiding.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Took many coats to cover, after two months it is starting to peel Took many coats to not only cover siding but even more coats to cover trim. Up to four to five coats. That is after extensive prep work. The paint is starting to peel after two months. Still have two gallons left, going to throw away and use another paint to touch up and finish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor coverage and poor drying time I purchased over $600 worth of pre-primed pine trim boards and painted them in my garage so they would be ready for the contractors when they re-shingled my house. Following the instructions on the can, as well as from a How-to-Paint guide from the library, and recommendations by the contractor I applied the dark green latex paint with a roller, then followed up with a brush. After several days of drying I found the boards to be some-what tacky and very poor coverage. I stacked the boards, set them aside, and painted the second set. After several days of drying the result was the same as the first - poor coverage and tacky. In prep for the second coat I lined up the first set and found that the boards stuck together. When I separated them some of the paint peeled off down to the white primer. After a month of indoor drying I gave them to the contractor for installation. They did some cutting, nailing, etc. and again some of the paint rubbed down to the primer. Once the trim boards were installed I had to go around and touch up all the mars. The old paint on the soffit was a medium green and I had to paint it to match the new trim. The first coat would not even cover the lighter green, showing many brush strokes. I'll have to give it a second coat and hope it won't wash off in the rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paint goes on smooth and covers well! Using this to paint the exterior of our home. Paint goes on very smoothly and covers well, so that one coat is all we need. Our home is 20 years old, and this is the first time we have been able to afford to paint, so it really has to do the job. It is making our siding look brand new. Thank you!
