One gallon covers approximately 300-400 sqft based on surface porosity.

 

Drying/Curing Time

For best results wait a minimum of 4 hours before recoating. This product cures and bonds over a full 7 day period.

 

Cleanup

Clean tools and equipment while they are still wet with a warm soapy water solution. Any unused primer should be stored in air tight container for reuse.

  • Airless sprayers should use 17/1000 to 21/1000 tip
