Surface Preparation: Surfaces to be painted must be clean, dry, and free of dirt, dust, grease, wax, and mildew. Remove peeling paint or loose material on surface*. Glossy surfaces must be dulled or primed for best results. For new wallboard, thoroughly vacuum fine dust from walls. Use Colorhouse® Inside Primer for new wallboard, new wood, cured masonry and plaster, spackled areas, and when going from a dark to light color. New plaster or masonry must be allowed to cure 30-60 days before priming. If previously painted with latex, no priming is necessary. Do not paint on unprimed metal.
Application: Mix paint thoroughly before use. Keep lid on can of unused portion to prevent skinning. Apply with brush to cut-in edges and roller to roll wall surfaces. For brushing, use a high-quality brush. For rolling, use 3⁄8" to ¾" nap roller cover. For airless sprayer - no thinning is recommended, 2000-2500 PSI, tip - .015"-.021". For conventional sprayer and HVLP, reduce up to 1 pint per gallon with clean water.
Clean Up: Remove excess paint from equipment before washing with water.
Thinning: Thinning is not recommended.
