Preparing Your Surfaces

The surface must be clean, dry and free of all loose, peeling or cracking paint. Thoroughly clean surface and remove wax and grease with an all-purpose cleaner (TSP or substitute), scouring powder, wax remover or diluted ammonia. Wire brush or scrape chipped or peeling paint. Rough or repaired wood surfaces should be sanded smooth. Prime bare, new wood with an enamel undercoater. Prime badly worn spots on old wood with a thinned first coat of Latex Porch and Floor Enamel. All rust must be removed from metal prior to painting. Prime all iron and steel with a rust inhibiting metal primer. Remove gloss from previously painted surfaces with gloss remover or by sanding. For new concrete, allow surface to cure at least 60 days before painting. Then, acid etch with muriatic acid (See etching instructions and read all cautions on etching packages). Unpainted or smooth-worn concrete should also be etched. After acid etching, apply two coats of Latex Porch and Floor Enamel - the first coat thinned with 1 pint water per gallon of paint.

 
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.
