Surface Preparation*

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: KILZ PREMIUM and KILZ 2® Primers are recommended for use over properly prepared glossy surfaces.
  • Mold or Mildew Covered Surfaces: Wash the area with a mildew remover, rinse with water and allow to dry before priming. Note: KILZ PREMIUM, KILZ 2 and KILZ Kitchen & Bath Primers are recommended for mildew-prone surfaces.
  • Masonry, Brick, Stucco and Plaster: KILZ STANDARD 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 STANDARD Primer.

Application

  • Eye protection is recommended. For spray applications, a small amount of water (no more than ½ pint per gallon) may be added.
  • 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

  • Airless spray – .017-.021 tip / 60 mesh filter
  • Prime the entire surface to ensure a uniform appearance of the topcoat.
  • Stainblocking: Important - For stainblocking, use oil based primers such as KILZ ORIGINAL or water based primers such as KILZ PREMIUM.
  • Tinting: KILZ STANDARD 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.(28-37 m2) per gallon depending on application method and surface porosity.
