Valspar® Elastomeric Masonry and Stucco Paint
This paint forms a weatherproof barrier against nature’s harsh extremes. Stucco and masonry structures expand and contract in response to the weather and structural stresses. Unlike typical exterior house paints, this coating fills and bridges hairline cracks, helping to prevent damaging water penetration. It passes Federal Specification TT-C555B, sec. 3.3.3, withstanding 98 mph winddriven rain. This premium quality acrylic coating protects your home like a flexible blanket…keeping your masonry and stucco safe and beautiful for years to come. It is available in white and can be tinted to many custom colors to make your home a showplace!
HOW TO USE
UsageUse on properly prepared, exterior-masonry surfaces including cement, cinder block, stucco, concrete and brick. Do not use on glazed brick, floors or steps.
PrepRead the Lead Warning paragraph. Apply paint to clean, sound surfaces. Large cracks, crumbling areas or water damage may need professional repair. New concrete or stucco must cure a month before applying a finish. Old or existing surfaces; remove dirt, grease, mildew, algae, efflorescence and loose, peeling coating. Pressure washer and masonry and stucco cleaner will ensure a clean, chalk and dirt free surface. Follow all label instructions and rinse well. Caution: Improper power washer use may cause damage to stucco. Facts About Efflorescence: Efflorescence is a white crusty material which migrates to the surface of masonry over time. It is caused by water entry within the wall itself. If present, find the source of water entry (cracked parapet cap tiles, open joints or cracks, etc.) and repair before painting. To remove, use a power washer, wire brush or scrape. Stubborn efflorescence can be removed with a mild muriatic acid solution. Protect eyes and skin by wearing rubber gloves and eye goggles. Clean mildew from the surface: Mildew is a fungus that looks like dirt but won’t wash off. Mildew must be removed before painting or it will grow through any new coat of paint. To remove mildew or suspected mildew, scrub house before painting with a commercial mildew remover or a solution of 1 part liquid chlorine bleach to 3 parts water. Rinse thoroughly. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Protect skin and eyes by wearing rubber gloves and eye goggles when working with bleach solution. Filling in Cracks and Patching: Hairline cracks (1/16” or less) can be covered with this product. Cracks larger than 1/16” must be cleaned to remove all loose stucco or masonry. For stucco, fill gaps with exterior stucco texture finish, following label instructions. For masonry gaps, fill with concrete patch. Note: Large areas of crumbling masonry indicate a serious problem; consult a professional contractor. Caulking: Caulk all joints, seams and cracks around windows, doors and trim to eliminate sources of moisture entry.
ApplicationPaint only when air or surface temperatures are between 35–90 °F (2–32 °C). Use a paint paddle to stir paint up from the bottom of the can. Intermix containers of the same color. Apply this product heavily to achieve the best weatherproofing characteristics. Cover grass and shrubbery with plastic or cloth. Apply two coats of this product to ensure that the correct film thickness (10 mil dry film) is achieved. The recommended spreading rate on a smooth surface is 130 sq.ft. per gallon per coat (a 10' x 13' area). On rough stucco or other uneven surfaces, this may be as low as 90 sq.ft. per gallon per coat. NOTE: For the two coats, you will need one gallon for every 45–65 sq.ft. (4.2–6 m2 ).
