Surface must be clean and dry. Remove all loose, peeling paint, dirt, grease, and any other surface contaminants. Putty all nail holes and caulk all cracks and open seams. Sand all glossy, rough, and patched surfaces. Plaster, concrete, and masonry surfaces must be completely dry, free of efflorescence, and allowed to cure for 30 days prior to painting. When applied to an uncoated substrate or to bare wood, two coats are required with the first coat acting as the primer. Uncoated substrates, repaired surfaces, or lightly stained areas may require additional coats. For severe stains, water marks, and other challenging conditions, such as bare metal or chalky surfaces, use an appropriate specialty primer.
WARNING! If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint, you may release lead dust or fumes. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD DUST OR FUMES CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID EXPOSURE. Wear a properly fitted, NIOSH-approved respirator and prevent skin contact to control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a HEPA vacuum and a wet mop. Before you start, find out how to protect yourself and your family by contacting the USEPA National Lead Information Hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD or log on to www.epa.gov/lead. Follow these instructions to control exposure to other hazardous substances that may be released during surface preparation.
Stir thoroughly before using and occasionally when in use. Apply with a high quality brush, roller, paint pad or by spray equipment. For airless spray application, use tip size 0.015"-0.021" and pressure of 2000 psi. When using more than one container of the same color, intermix to ensure color uniformity. Do not thin.
Normally dries to touch in 1 hour at 77°F (25°C) and 50% relative humidity. Allow four hours before recoating. Drying times listed may vary depending on temperature, humidity, color, film build, and air movement.
Approximately 300 to 400 sq. ft. (28 to 37 sq. meters) per U.S. gallon (3.78 L) on primed, smooth, nonporous surfaces. Coverage figures do not include material loss due to surface irregularities and porosity, or material loss due to application method or mixing.
Clean tools and spray equipment with warm, soapy water immediately after use.
