KILZ® 3 PREMIUM
Interior | Exterior Primer
New Look, Same Trusted Formula! KILZ® 3 PREMIUM primer is a superior quality, fast drying, low odour, very low VOC, water-based primer-sealer-stainblocker. It has excellent adhesion and provides a mildew resistant coating making it ideal for use in moisture-prone areas. KILZ PREMIUM primer blocks most medium to heavy stains caused by water, tannin, ink, pencil, felt marker and grease. Its thicker high hiding formula hides surface imperfections and prepares the surface better for painting. Use on interior and exterior surfaces including woodwork, drywall, plaster, paneling, masonry, brick, painted metal and properly prepared glossy surfaces†. Works with oil and water-based paints. Not recommended for floors.

The following steps are recommended for product performance.
- All surfaces must be clean, free of dust, chalk, oil, grease, wax, polish, mold and mildew, loose 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. Sanding or removal of paint containing lead is hazardous.*
- †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® 3 PREMIUM 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 3 PREMIUM Primer.
- Fire Restoration: It is critical to clean damaged surfaces thoroughly before priming. Primer recommendations: KILZ® RESTORATION™ for water-based (interior); KILZ® ORIGINAL or KILZ® ORIGINAL INTERIOR/EXTERIOR for oil-based.
*WARNING! If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint, you may release lead dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. Contact the National Lead Information Centre at 1-800-424-LEAD or log on to www.epa.gov/lead.
- Eye protection is recommended. For spray applications, a small amount of water (no more than 15 ml per 3.79 L) may be added. Do not thin for stainblocking applications.
- Only apply if surface, air and product temperatures are between 10°-32°C. Stir thoroughly before and occasionally during use. Apply using a brush, roller or sprayer.

- 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 PREMIUM Primer may be tinted with up to 60 mL of universal colourant per 3.79 L. Tinting to a lighter shade than the topcoat is recommended.
