Surface Preparation

  • All surfaces must be clean, dry, free of dust, chalk, oil, grease, wax, polish, mold and mildew, loose or peeling paint, rust and all other foreign substances.

  • 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.

  • Glossy Surfaces: For maximum adhesion, scuff sand the surface thoroughly before priming.

  • Mold or Mildew Covered Surfaces: Any existing mold and/or mildew on the surface MUST be removed before priming or painting. Wash the area with a mildew remover, rinse with water and allow to dry before priming.

  • Masonry, Brick and Plaster: KILZ KITCHEN & BATH 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 KITCHEN & BATH Primer.

  • Fire Restoration: Not recommended. Primer Recommendations: KILZ MAX®, KILZ® ORIGINAL, KILZ COMPLETE® or KILZ ODORLESS® Primers.

Application

  • Eye protection is recommended. For spray applications, a small amount of water (no more than 1/2 pint per gallon) may be added. Do not thin for stainblocking applications.

  • Only apply if surface, air and product temperatures are between 50°-90°F (10°-32°C). Stir thoroughly before and occasionally during use. Apply using a brush, roller or sprayer.

  • Brush – High quality Nylon/Polyester.

  • Roller – High quality 3/8"-1/2" nap on smooth surfaces or 1/2"-3/4" nap on semi-rough or porous surfaces.

  • Airless spray – .017" - .021" tip / 60 mesh filter.

  • 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: KILZ KITCHEN & BATH Primer may be tinted with up to 2 ounces of universal colorant per gallon. Tinting to a lighter shade than the topcoat is recommended.

  • Coverage: 300 - 400 sq. ft. (27.87 - 37 m2) per gallon depending on application method and surface porosity.

Dry Time at 77°F (25°C), 50% RH

  • Dries to the touch in 30 minutes at 77°F (25°C) and 50% humidity.
