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.

  • 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. Note: KILZ® PREMIUM and KILZ 2® primers are recommended for mildew-prone surfaces.

  • Masonry, Brick, Stucco and Plaster: KILZ ORIGINAL primer may be used on clean, dry, aged masonry surfaces that have cured (dried) at least 90 days. If masonry has been cured less than 90 days, use KILZ® PREMIUM, KILZ 2® or KILZ ODOURLESS® primers.

  • Fire Restoration: It is critical to clean smoke damaged surfaces thoroughly before priming.

Application

  • Eye protection is recommended.

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

  • Do not thin.

  • 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 ORIGINAL 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 at 25°C and 50% humidity.

  • Recoat or topcoat after 1 hour.
