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. 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 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.
DO NOT THIN. Intermix containers to ensure color uniformity.
Stir thoroughly and often during use. Apply to a small area and allow stain to dry to ensure acceptable appearance. Apply two thin coats with a high quality brush, roller, paint/stain pad, or with spray equipment. When applying by roller or spray, always back-brush for best results. Some colors, or drastic color changes, may require a third coat to achieve a uniform finish. To help avoid lap marks, apply to only a few boards at a time, and maintain a wet edge. May become slippery when wet.
Apply when no precipitation is expected for 24 hours, and when air and surface temperatures are 35°F (2°C) to 90°F (32°C) and will remain above 35°F (2°C) for the next 24 hours. Avoid staining in direct sunlight or on hot surfaces.
Normally dries to the touch in 30 minutes when applied in optimal temperatures of 50°F (10°C) to 85°F (29°C). Allow 2 to 4 hours between coats or before recoating. Application in high humidity or in temperatures below 50°F (10°C) may prolong drying and recoating times. Allow 24 to 48 hours of drying time before light foot traffic or replacing furniture. Allow new stain to cure 30 days before washing.
Approximately 350 to 500 sq. ft. (32.2 to 46.5 sq. meters) per gallon (3.78 Liters) depending on application, wood texture and porosity.
