The surface should be clean and dry. Clean surfaces thoroughly to remove all dirt, grease, oil, and any other foreign matter by using a stiff brush and/or clean rags wet with mineral spirits.

New Work

In order for primer to protect metal it is essential for that primer to be able to reach the primed substrate. Due to the wetting ability of this primer, good results can also be expected over good hand or power tool cleaning.

Previously Painted Surfaces

All areas failing by rusting, blistering, etc. should be cleaned back to bare metal by appropriate methods and spot primed. If the surface shows more than 25% failure or poor adhesion, all old coatings should be removed and a full prime system applied.


Always stir well before use. Additives for ease of
application or to promote adhesion are not
recommended. Do not apply if material, substrate, or ambient temperature is below 50°F or above 110°F.
Relative humidity should be below 90%. Apply by
brush, roller, or spray. For best brush application
results, use a quality synthetic filament brush. For roller application, use a 3⁄8” to 1⁄2” nap cover. For spray application, thin with mineral spirits, up to one pint per gallon if necessary.

● Apply by brush, roller, or spray.

CAUTIONS — Lead Hazard: WARNING! If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint, you may release lead dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD DUST CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID EXPOSURE. Wear a NIOSH-approved respirator 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 National Lead Information Hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD


If the dry paint film is sanded, the dust emitted
can contain crystalline silica which has been shown to
cause cancer under long term exposure. USE ONLY
WITH ADEQUATE VENTILATION. Wear appropriate respiratory protection when sanding or spraying this product. To avoid breathing vapors or spray mist, open windows and doors or use other means to ensure fresh air entry during application and drying. If you experience eye watering, headaches or dizziness, wear respiratory protection (NIOSH/MSHA TC23C or equivalent) or leave the area. Avoid contact with eyes
and skin.


If you experience difficulty in breathing, leave the area to obtain fresh air. If continued difficulty is experienced, get medical assistance immediately.
In case of eye contact, flush immediately with plenty
of water for at least 15 minutes and get medical
attention; for skin, wash thoroughly with soap and
water. If swallowed, get medical attention immediately.
