Details

Area Preparation:

Surfaces to be coated must be dry. Remove all loose and 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. Masonry and plaster surfaces must be allowed to cure for 30 days prior to painting. Uncoated substrates, repaired surfaces or lightly stained areas may require additional coats. 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.

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.

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, then primed. Any knots or resinous areas must be primed before painting. Countersink all nails, putty flush with surface before painting.

Application:

Stir thoroughly before and occasionally during use. When using more than one can of the same color, intermix to ensure color uniformity.
Application Method: Apply with a high quality brush, roller, paint pad, or by spray equipment. Where necessary, apply a second coat. Allow each coat to dry before applying the next coat.
Application Equipment: For smooth surfaces, use a polyester nylon brush or 3/16” - 3/8” nap roller cover. For textured surfaces, use a nylon brush or roller designed for this purpose. If applied by spray, back-brushing or back-rolling is recommended. For airless spray application, use tip size 0.015” - 0.021” and pressure range of 1500 - 2000 psi.
Thinning: DO NOT THIN.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Paint I bought the paint because it said that it was thick and covered previous paint. Paint and primer. I have done 3 coats on my daughters room and it needs more. I even filled some nail holes and it didn't even cover that. I can see where I patched it. I can even see the test squares for different colors. And that's after 3 coats. Bad quality paint!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good Poor coverage. On the first wall, I started with just the paint since it has a primer in it. Didn't cover well at all. Bought a separate primer and put that on the second two walls. Have now put three coats over the primer and still not good coverage. Would never buy this paint again. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Poor Coverage I will never use this paint every again. I painted my two kids rooms over the weekend with this product and it covers so poorly, that it left streaks throughout the rooms. You would never think I applied 2 coats and then a 3rd to try and fix all the issues. I am very handy, use very good rollers to apply and have a good technique so I know this is an issue with the paint's quality. I painted my other bedroom the week prior with a more expensive brand and not one streak or issue. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTELY AMAZING PAINT....CANNOT BE BEAT!! I purchased this paint on a whim .....in the hopes to do a small DIY project on my bathroom .....sounds crazy but I purchased to paint my bathroom tiles. I hated the colors of my tiles in the shower and floor. I began my project and started painting the tiles in shower, could not believe the thickness of the paint, then the coverage, the smooth ability, it totally did an amazing job. In fact, I was so happy I continued on and did the floor, my vanity even painted the bathroom sink! I went on to polyurtherane all when done...not to mention a very important aspect, NO SMELL!! My husband has breathing issues and the paint has no smell at all. Do you realize what you would pay for Zero VOC Low Odor Paint in other Brands?? OMG...people. Run do not walk to get yourself this paint. It is seriously amazing. I am now doing my other bathroom tiles and now painting an old acrylic shower stall with it and more ceramic tiles. 2 brand new bathrooms thanks to Glidden Premium Paint & Primer....LOVE!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One-Coat Coverage I have used Glidden interior paint in the past, and always found it to do a good job in covering over whatever needed to be painted. I do have to say that Glidden's names for its paints have changed over the years, and some of the comments I've read more recently weren't very good. When I moved into a new place that had light pink bedroom walls and a dining room-living room area that was painted light green, I knew I had a paint job to do! I decided to purchase Glidden's Premium Interior Paint + Primer in Flat and it did not disappoint at all. This paint was very easy to use, and it thoroughly covered the existing paint without needing a second coat. Perhaps a second coat might have given the walls a little deeper color (I used Swiss Coffee), but I was satisfied with the results. Cleanup was easy as well. I definitely would purchase this paint again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT PLEASED This paint does not cover well. Used almost 2 gallons to go over white walls in a small bedroom. Will not buy this again. Having issues with areas on the walls being lighter than the rest of the wall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't cover after 3 coats Painting a game room my favorite sports team color.. after three coats and two gallons of Glidden the old color still shows through. Looks terrible. I'm going to match the color at a different store. Tired of painting the same walls over and over trimming and rolling and now out of paint.....Still not covered.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gummy texture, no info on base Paint dries nice and thick but no matter how much stirring and shaking it goes on gummy and comes off if you go over wet area with roller a 2nd time. Going up and down in strips not V shape helps. But when dry the finish is nice n smooth. But yeah requires 2nd coat. Sort of pain to work with. Also no info on can about acrylic or oil or water base....and tips on roller type. Maybe I am using wrong roller? No idea. Color and finish fine, but be prepared thick means thick.
