HOW TO USE
UsageUse on properly prepared exterior surfaces including outdoor home siding, front doors, exterior doors, sheds, and more.
PrepThoroughly clean the surface and allow to dry. Remove all dirt, dust, chalk, rust, grease, wax and mildew.
ApplicationStir 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.
