WHERE TO USE: Metallic Paint Primer is suitable for concrete, masonry, non-ferrous metal, galvanized steel, plastic, wallboard, wood, plaster, stucco, and previously coated surfaces. It can be used for both interior and exterior applications.
ALL SURFACES: Remove dirt, grease, oil, salt and chemical contaminants by washing the surface with a commercial detergent or other suitable cleaner. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water and allow to fully dry. If any mold or mildew is present on the surface clean further with one quart of household bleach added to a gallon of water. Rinse with clean water. Severely mildewed areas should be cleaned with a chlorinated cleansing powder and thoroughly rinsed with water. All surfaces must be dry at time of application.
GALVANIZED STEEL: New galvanized steel should be solvent cleansed to remove all post galvanizing treatments such as oil, grease or wax. Old or existing galvanized steel should be thoroughly washed to remove all surface contaminates.
CONCRETE AND MASONRY: Hand or power tool clean to remove all loose or unsound concrete, masonry, or previous coating. Very dense, non-porous, concrete should be acid etched or abrasive blasted to remove the laitance layer and create a surface profi le. Allow new concrete to cure for 30 days before coating.
PREVIOUSLY COATED: Previously coated surfaces must be sound and in good condition. Smooth, hard or glossy fi nishes should be scarifi ed by sanding to create a surface profi le.
