WHERE TO USE

Use on properly prepared interior surfaces, such as:

SURFACE PREPARATION†
  • Complete all patching, repairs and sanding before applying KILZ GENERAL PURPOSE primer.
  • 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: KILZ® PREMIUM and KILZ 2® primers are recommended for use over properly prepared glossy surfaces.
  • 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 GENERAL PURPOSE 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 GENERAL PURPOSE primer.
