KILZ® ORIGINAL Aerosol Interior | Exterior Primer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great primer I was a painter for 20 years and used this primer a lot. It was great for covering up marks that were left in the apatments. The children of the family would color on the walls with markers and crayons and the KILZ primer covered up everything. We had over 1000 apartments so we used quite a bit of KILZ, it is a great product. I also use it at home for any primer that is needed and gettting ready to paint the block walls in the basement and it going to take alot of paint.

Surface Preparation*

  • All surfaces must be clean, free of dust, chalk, oil, 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.
  • Glossy Surfaces: For maximum adhesion, scuff sand the surface thoroughly before priming.*
  • Peeling or Checked Paint: Scrape off loose paint and sand to a smooth surface.*
  • 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 ORIGINAL INTERIOR/EXTERIOR Primer may be used on clean, dry, aged masonry surfaces that have cured (dried) at least 90 days. If masonry has cured less than 90 days, use KILZ PREMIUM o KILZ 2 Primers.
  • Fire Restoration: It is critical to clean smoke damaged surfaces thoroughly before priming.

Application

  • Eye protection is recommended.
  • For best results, use when substrate and air temperatures are between 35°F (2°C) and 90°F (32°C). Cover adjacent areas to protect from overspray.
  • Shake can vigorously for 1 minute after mixing ball begins to rattle and often during use. Hold can upright, moving from side-to-side while spraying lightly and evenly about 12" from area being painted. 2-3 thin coats produce best results.
  • Topcoat with water-based or oil-based paint after 60 minutes. NOTE: On some surfaces, spot priming may cause a non-uniform appearance in the final coat. To avoid this, prime the entire surface.

Dry Time at 77°F (25°C), 50% RH

  • Topcoat with water-based or oil-based paint after 60 minutes.

Clean-Up & Disposal

  • Do not stick pins or wire into can opening.
  • Clean fresh overspray with mineral spirits or paint thinner. Remove dried paint with paint remover, but test small area first to ensure paint remover does not damage substrate.
  • Please consider donating any unused product. For recycling or disposal information contact your local household refuse collection service.
