Area Preparation

Surface must be clean and dry. Remove all loose, peeling paint, dirt, mildew, grease, oil, chalk, rust, and any other surface contaminants. Blistering and peeling issues are commonly caused by moisture behind the paint film. Problems leading to excessive moisture in the substrate must be repaired prior to painting. Putty all nail holes and caulk all cracks and open seams. Sand all glossy, rough, and patched surfaces. Stucco, 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. For metal, tannin staining woods, fresh concrete or masonry (less than 30 days cure), or chalky surfaces, use of an appropriate 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 Follow these instructions to control exposure to other hazardous substances that may be released during surface preparation.

Application Details

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, surface, and product temperatures are between 35°F (2°C) and 90°F (32°C) and at least 5°F (3°C) above the dew point. Air and surface temperatures must remain between 35°F (2°C) and 90°F (32°C) for the next 48 hours.

Normally dries to touch in 30 minutes at 77°F (25°C) and 50% relative humidity. Allow 4 hours before recoating. At 35°F (2°C), dries to touch in 3 to 6 hours; allow 24 hours before recoating. Drying times listed may vary depending on temperature, humidity, color, film build, and air movement.
