GENERAL SURFACE PREPARATION
Surfaces to be coated must be dry, clean, sound, and free from all contamination including loose and peeling paint, dirt, grease, oil, wax, concrete curing agents and bond breakers, chalk, efflorescence, mildew, rust, product fines, and dust. Remove loose paint, chalk, and efflorescence by wire brushing, scraping, sanding, and/or pressure washing. Putty all nail SprayStone USA 1-855-969-7772 holes and caulk all cracks and open seams. Sand all glossy, rough, and patched surfaces. 633 W Rittenhouse Street www.spraystoneusa.com Feather back all rough edges to sound surface by sanding. Prime all bare and porous Philadelphia, PA 19144 Rev: July, 2013 substrates. Clean surfaces per ASTM Standard Practice D4258-83: Standard Practice for Surface Cleaning Concrete for Coating. Vacuum cleaning, water cleaning, detergent water wash, power wash cleaning, steam cleaning, hand tool and mechanical cleaning are acceptable cleaning methods. Remove efflorescence by pressure washing or cleaning with dilute muriatic acid (following manufacturer’s instruction) or a solution of 1 part white vinegar to 4 parts water. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry. Remove mildew by using a solution of 1 part chlorine bleach to 3 parts water. Before use, be sure to read and follow instructions and warnings on label. Dry substrate thoroughly to a moisture content under 12%. Clean chalky paint in good condition by sweep blasting, power washing, wire brushing, etc. to remove loose material. After cleaning, powdery or chalky, unpainted recommended substrates may be conditioned with a surface sealer. WARNING! If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint, you may release lead dust or fumes. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD DUST OR FUMES CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID EXPOSURE. Wear a properly fitted NIOSH-approved respirator and prevent skin contact to control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a HEPA vacuum and a wet mop.

Before you start, find out how to protect yourself and your family by contacting the USEPA National Lead Information Hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD or log on to www.epa.gov/lead. In Canada contact a regional Health Canada office. Follow these instructions to control exposure other hazardous substances that may be released during surface preparation. BRICK: New brick and mortar should cure for at least 7 days and preferably 30 days prior to priming and painting. The pH of the substrate must be less than 13 before priming with this alkali resistant primer. Painting glazed brick is not recommended due to potential adhesion problems. CONCRETE AND MASONRY: New concrete should cure for at least 7 days and preferably 30 days prior to priming and painting. The pH of the substrate must be less than 13 before priming. CONCRETE/MASONRY BLOCK: Mortar should cure for at least 7 days and preferably 30 days prior to painting. Fill block with an appropriate block filler before priming if a smoother uniform surface is desired. Surfaces previously coated with water thinned cement-based paint must be prepared with extra care. If the material appears to be adhering tightly, a masonry sealer may be applied to seal the surface. Check adhesion by applying a piece of masking tape. If the sealer peels off and has loose particles, remove all chalking or crumbling material, reseal and re-check adhesion. FIBER CEMENT: Fiber cement siding and trim may present potential adhesion, alkali burn, and efflorescence problems. New board should be aged for at least 30 days prior to priming and painting. The pH of the substrate must be less than 13 and the moisture content must be less than 12% prior to priming and topcoating. All cracks and opens seams should be caulked to prevent water penetration. Pre-primed board from the manufacturer may not be uniformly or completely sealed. It is recommended that this alkali resistant primer be applied to ensure complete and uniform sealing prior to topcoating. STUCCO: New stucco should cure for at least 7 days and preferably 30 days prior to priming and painting. The pH of the substrate must be less than 13 before priming with this alkali resistant primer. Surface chalk from the curing or aging process should be removed then sealed with an appropriate sealer to rebind and restore the surface to a sound condition. TILT-UP or PRE-CAST CONCRETE: New tilt-up or pre-cast should cure for at least 30 days and preferably 90 days prior to priming and painting. The pH of the substrate must be less than 13 before priming with an alkali resistant sealer or primer. Moisture content should be less than 12% prior to priming and topcoating. All bond breakers, release agents, and admix plasticizers must be removed to prevent adhesion problems. Bond breakers and similar surface contaminants should be removed as directed by the tilt-up manufacturer which can include specific cleaners, powerwashing, and/or surface profiling by mechanical methods. Surface chalk from the curing or aging process should be removed then sealed with an appropriate sealer to rebind and restore the surface to a sound condition. ALUMINUM: This substrate may present potential adhesion problems. Any coating applied directly to aluminum should be spot applied, allowed to cure overnight, and then evaluated for adhesion. If adhesion is good, the application may proceed. Check adhesion by applying a piece of masking tape. When the masking tape is removed, if the coating peels off, the surface must be scuff sanded prior to proceeding to ensure mechanical adhesion. FERROUS METAL: The surface must be cleaned thoroughly to remove any dust, rust, and surface contaminants, and then primed with an appropriate primer for metal.

GALVANIZED STEEL: Caution must be used when selecting coatings for use on all galvanized metal surfaces. These substrates may have a factory-applied stabilizer, which is used to prevent white rusting during storage and shipping. Such stabilizers must be removed by either brush blasting, sanding or chemical treatment prior to priming with an appropriate primer for metal. PLASTER: Plaster, hardcoat, skim coat, or other alkaline surfaces should be allowed to cure for at least 30 days and have a surface pH of less than 10 prior to priming. Use of an alkali resistant primer is recommended. WOOD: Unpainted wood or wood in poor condition should be sanded smooth, wiped clean, then primed with an appropriate primer. Any knots or resinous areas must be primed before painting. Countersink all nails, putty flush with surface, then prime. GYPSUM WALLBOARD-DRYWALL: Nails or screws should be countersunk, and they along with any indentations should be mudded flush with the surface, sanded smooth and cleaned to remove any dust, then prime prior to painting the substrate.

LIMITATIONS OF USE
Apply when air, surface and product temperatures are above 45ºF and surface temperature is at least 5ºF above the dew point. For optimum application properties, bring material to at least 50ºF prior to application. Air and surface temperature must remain above 45ºF for the next 24 hours. Avoid exterior application late in the day when dew and condensation are likely to form or if rain or snow is expected. Not recommended for use on surfaces demonstrating hydrostatic or high vapor pressure or for immersion service. Not for use on roof tops. While this product provides a mildew resistant coating, growth may still occur if the substrate is not properly prepared prior to painting and/or if the substrate is consistently exposed to conditions conducive to mold, mildew, and algae. Examples of these conditions include, but are not limited to, under eaves, behind shrubbery and trees, and in areas that are consistently damp with little to no direct sunlight. USE WITH ADEQUATE VENTILATION. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
