KEY ATTRIBUTES - LEARN MORE
KILZ Complete® is an oil-based primer, sealer and stainblocker ideal for blocking stains, priming, and sealing almost all interior and exterior surfaces. It is especially effective at blocking graffiti, tannin, water, smoke and other bleeding stains. KILZ Complete® dries quickly and provides a mildew resistant coating. It can be used under latex or oil-based paint. Not recommended on flooring.
- 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 COMPLETE 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 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.
Only apply if surface, air and product temperatures 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 COMPLETE 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.

USE ONLY WITH ADEQUATE VENTILATION: Do not breathe vapors or spray mist. Ensure fresh air entry during application and drying. If you experience eye watering, headache, or dizziness, or if air monitoring demonstrates vapor / mist levels are above applicable limits, wear an appropriate, properly fitted respirator (NIOSH / MSHA TC 23C or equivalent) during and after application.

NOTICE: Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents may be harmful or fatal.
VAPORS MAY CAUSE FLASH FIRE: Vapors can flow along surfaces to a distant ignition source and flash back. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Do not smoke. Extinguish all flames and pilot lights and turn off stoves, heaters, electric motors and other sources of ignition during use and until all vapors are gone. Prevent build-up of vapors by opening all windows and doors to achieve cross-ventilation. To avoid spontaneous combustion, soak soiled rags and waste immediately after use in a closed, water filled metal container. See clean-up and disposal for more information.
If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately. If you experience difficulty in breathing, leave the area to obtain fresh air. If continued difficulty is experienced, get medical attention immediately. In case of eye contact, flush eyes immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and get medical attention; for skin, wash thoroughly with soap and water.
