Preparation

  • Use on previously painted or primed Exterior surfaces. All surfaces should be properly prepared and cleaned.
  • Remove loose paint and chalk. Wash off dirt and grease with detergent, rinse and allow to dry.
  • Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain removing product. Scuff sand glossy surfaces and repair imperfections.
  • Remove all dust with a damp cloth, allow to dry. Etch galvanized metal and rinse thoroughly.
  • Allow new stucco, plaster and masonry to cure for 30 days before painting.

Prime†

  • Use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® Multi-Surface Primer & Sealer No. 436.
  • For optimal color development, better hide, and to reduce the number of topcoats with deep colors denoted with a dagger (†) on the color chip, apply a custom tinted primer.
  • For best results, prime all metal surfaces before painting.

Application

  • Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-32°C).
  • Stir paint occasionally.
  • Intermix containers of same product to ensure color and sheen uniformity.
  • Use a high quality 3/8-1/2" nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or airless sprayer (.015-.021" spray tip, 60 mesh filter).
  • Do not thin if using a roller or brush; however, if using a sprayer and thinning is required, thin with water at a rate of no more than 1/2 pint per gallon.
  • Certain colors may require more than one coat for complete hide. Darker colors may require additional dry time between coats.
  • Cooler temperatures or higher humidity may prolong drying time.
  • After 4 weeks, cured paint film may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent.
  • Dry paint film is mildew resistant. When applying to vinyl, color choice must be the same color or lighter than the existing color. Do not use on floors.

Disposal

  • For disposal of empty containers, unused paint and soiled rags, contact your household refuse collection service.
