HOW TO USE

  • Usage
    Properly prepared exterior surfaces
  • Prep
    Thoroughly clean the surface and allow to dry. Remove all dirt, dust, chalk, rust, grease, wax and mildew.
  • Application
    Stir paint thoroughly. Intermix containers for uniformity. When air temperature is 35°F, substrates may be colder; prior to painting, check to be sure the air, surface and material temperatures are above 35°F and at least 5°F above the dew point. Avoid using if rain or snow is expected within 1 hour. Do not apply when air or surface temperatures may drop below 35°F within 48 hours. On large expanses of metal siding, the air, surface and material temperatures must be 50°F or higher. No reduction necessary. Some deep or bright colors, surface conditions and application technique may impact coverage and require more than one coat to achieve your optimal coverage.
