Where to use
Ideal for use on properly prepared exterior wood, brick, masonry, concrete, weathered aluminum, weathered vinyl siding, and primed metal substrates. Vinyl siding and similar plastic composites should not be painted with a color darker than the original color. Painting vinyl siding or plastic composites with a darker color may cause them to warp.
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. When Paramount Paint + Primer in One exterior paint is applied to an uncoated substrate or to bare wood, two coats are required with the first coat acting as the primer. For metal, tannin staining woods, fresh concrete or masonry (less than 30 days cure), or chalky surfaces, use of the appropriate high quality specialty primer is recommended for best results. 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.
Application: Stir thoroughly. Apply with a high quality brush, roller or by spray equipment. When using more than one container of the same color, intermix to ensure color uniformity. Thinning is not usually required.

Air and surface temperatures must remain above 35°F (2°C) for the next 48 hours. Do not apply late in the day when dew and condensation are likely to form or if rain or snow is expected. On large expanses of metal, temperatures must be 50°F (10°C) or higher.
