    Application

    • Apply product on dry substrates when air and surface temperatures are between 35°-90°F (2°-32°C) and will remain between 35°-90°F (2°-32°C) for at least 4 hours after applying.
    • Do not paint when rain or heavy condensation is expected.
    • Stir paint occasionally. Intermix containers of same product to ensure color and sheen uniformity.
    • On semi-smooth surfaces, use a high quality 3/8-1/2" nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer (.015-.021" spray tip, 60 mesh filter).
    • On rough surfaces, use a high quality 3/4-1" nap roller cover.
    • 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 additional coats for complete hide. On heavy stains and woods that contain tannins, allow 12-16 hours of dry time between coats.
