  • Usage
    Properly prepared interior walls, ceilings and trim, including plaster, wood, drywall, brick and cement. Do not use on bare metal or over glazed or glossy surfaces.
  • Prep
    Surfaces must be clean, dry and dull prior to application. Thoroughly clean the surface and allow to dry. Remove wallpaper and loose, peeling paint. Scrape and sand peeled or damaged paint. Sand glossy surfaces dull. All dust should be removed. Drywall: Fill cracks and holes with joint compound and sand smooth. Plaster, Masonry, Block: New surfaces must cure at least 30 days. Fill rough surfaces if desired. Wood: Sand to a fresh surface. Patch imperfections with wood filler. Heavily stained areas, including tannin stains on wood, may require an appropriate stain-blocking primer.
  • Application
    Stir thoroughly. Intermix containers to ensure uniform colour. Apply with a premium-quality roller, polyester brush or airless sprayer. If applying by spray, back-roll or back-brush to work paint into the surface. Apply a liberal coat of paint uniformly, working well into the surface.
