Surface Preparation†

The following steps are required for product performance.

  • 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.†

Application

  • Eye protection is recommended.

  • For best results, use when substrate and air temperatures are between 2° C and 32° C.

  • Cover adjacent areas to protect from overspray.

  • Shake can vigorously for 1 minute after mixing ball begins to rattle and often during use.

  • Hold can upright, moving from side-to-side while spraying lightly and evenly about 30 cm from area being painted.

  • Two to three thin coats produce best results.

  • Topcoat with latex or oil-based paint after 1 hour.

  • Dries to the touch in 30 minutes at 25° C and 50% humidity. 

  • Finishing: Topcoat within 30 days to prevent contamination of the primer before painting. 

  • NOTE: On some surfaces, spot priming may cause a non-uniform appearance in the final coat. To avoid this, prime the entire surface.

Dry Time at 25°C, 50% RH

  • To Touch: 15 - 30 Minutes

  • To Recoat / Topcoat: 1 Hour

  • Longer dry time may be required in cooler temperatures and in higher humidity.

Clean up & Disposal

  • Clear spray valve immediately after use by turning can upside down and spraying until only clear gas is released.

  • If spray nozzle becomes clogged, remove and clean. Do not stick pins or wire into can opening.

  • Replace nozzle with valve opening pointed away from you.

  • Clean fresh overspray with mineral spirits or paint thinner. Remove dried paint with paint remover, but test small area first to ensure paint remover does not damage substrate.

  • Please consider donating any unused product.
