KILZ 2® Latex is a fast drying, water-based multi-purpose primer, sealer and stainblocker that has a very mild odour and blocks out most light stains including water, rust, grease, ink, pencil and felt marker and more. It is ideal for non-drastic colour changes and sealing porous surfaces. Excellent adhesion for use on interior and exterior surfaces. It is a low VOC primer and easy to clean with soap and water. Not recommended on flooring.

Surface Preparation†

  • The surface must be clean, free of dust, grease, wax, peeling paint, mold, mildew and wallpaper paste. If washing is necessary, use a non-soapy detergent or a TSP substitute. Rinse well and allow to dry.

  • Peeling or Checked Paint: Scrape off loose paint and sand to a smooth surface. Sanding or removal of paint containing lead is hazardous.†

  • Unpainted, exterior wood exposed to sun and/or moisture longer than 2-4 weeks must be cleaned and sanded before priming.

  • Glossy Surfaces: For maximum adhesion, scuff sand the surface thoroughly before priming.†

  • Mold or Mildew Covered Surfaces: Wash the area with a mildew remover, rinse with water and allow to dry before priming.

  • Masonry, Brick, Stucco and Plaster: KILZ 2 Latex  primer may be used on clean, dry, aged masonry surfaces. New masonry must be allowed to cure (dry) at least 30 days before applying KILZ 2 Latex primer.

  • Fire Restoration: It is critical to clean smoke damaged surfaces thoroughly before priming. Primary Recommendation: KILZ COMPLETE®, KILZ ODOURLESS® or KILZ® ORIGINAL primers.

Application

  • Eye protection is recommended.

  • Apply as supplied using a brush, roller or sprayer.

  • Do not thin for stainblocking applications. A small amount of water may be added for other spray applications.

  • Only apply if surface, air and product tempera-tures are between 10°-32° C.

  • Stir thoroughly before and occasionally during use.

  • Prime the entire surface to ensure a uniform appearance of the topcoat.

  • Stainblocking: After priming, test for stain bleed-through by applying the topcoat to a small section. If the stain bleeds through the topcoat, apply a second coat of primer and test again before topcoating the entire area. If bleeding continues, a longer dry time is needed before topcoating.

  • Tinting: Not recommended for stainblocking applications. KILZ 2 Latex primer may be tinted with up to 60 ml of universal colourant per 3.79 L for non-stainblocking projects. Tinting to a lighter shade than the topcoat is recommended. 

Dry Time at 25°C, 50% RH

  • Dries to the touch in 30 minutes.

  • Can be recoated or topcoated in one hour with latex or oil-based paint.

  • Application at lower temperatures, in high humidity or in poorly ventilated areas will affect dry time.
