| 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.†
- 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 MAX 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 MAX primer.
- Fire Restoration: It is critical to clean smoke damaged surfaces thoroughly before priming.
- 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 temperatures are between 50°-90°F (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.
- Sealing odors: For persistent odors, apply a second coat of primer before topcoating. If odor continues, a longer dry time is needed before topcoating.
- Tinting: Not recommended for stainblocking applications. KILZ MAX primer may be tinted with up to 2 ounces of universal colorant per gallon for non- stainblocking projects. Tinting to a lighter shade than the topcoat is recommended.
