The Ultimate finish for refurbishing dingy kitchen and bathroom cabinets, shelving, furniture and other interior applications that require an ultra-smooth, factory like finish with long lasting beauty. Its super adhering quality allows painting "hard to stick" surfaces, even polyurethane and varnish surfaces, without using a primer.|
Cabinet Coat is not appropriate for surfaces that will be immersed in liquid (sinks and tubs) or for stove or oven surfaces.
SUGGESTED USES: Metal, New painted, polyurethaned wood, Furniture, Woodwork, Doors & Toys.
Surface Preparation General – All surface areas to be painted should be clean, dry, sound and free of all dirt, grease, oils, waxes, mildew and any other surface contaminants that can cause paint failure. Dirt and chalk should be thoroughly removed by scrubbing with warm soapy water. Surface wax should be removed with a commercial wax stripper. Grease residue should be removed with a cleaner. Remove all loose chipping, cracking and peeling from previously painted surfaces by hand scraping, sanding, wire brushing and/or by use of power tool cleaning methods such as electric sanders, grinders, etc. Remove any loose rust, mill scale, rust deposits from metal surfaces by the same methods described above in accordance with SSPC – (Steel Structures Painting Council) specifications for the proper surface preparation of metal surfaces. Repair/replace any seriously damaged and/or delaminated surface areas. Lightly feather sand all rough paint edges to adjacent surface area. All glossy surface areas should be lightly sanded to effectively dull any existing sheen and create a more suitable surface for painting. NOTE: Always clean before sanding to prevent driving contamination into the substrate or previous coatings!
Glossy Surfaces – Although Cabinet Coat is formulated to be applied to hard to coat surfaces without the need for sanding, it is recommended that proper surface preparation still be completed to enhance adhesion properties. Surfaces such as Melamine Laminate, Formica®, ceramic tile and glossy painted surfaces should be properly deglossed. Previously Painted Surfaces: No primer is needed if surface is in good condition. Clean or sand as described above. Spot prime bare spots with an initial coat of Cabinet Coat. Melamine Laminate or Formica®: No primer needed. Lightly sand with fine sandpaper. Remove sanding dust with tack rag. Ferrous Metal: Prime bare spots with metal primer.
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. Carefully clean up 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 or log on to www.epa.gov/lead.
Application - Cabinet Coat applies easily with a high-quality brush or roller. If spraying is desired, the preferred method is HVLP. Stir product thoroughly before using. It is important to maintain a wet edge during all methods of paint application by brushing or rolling into previously applied coating area. Overworking Cabinet Coat can lead to brush marks or roller marks, as this product dries quickly. Apply when surface and ambient temperature are above 50ºF and below 90ºF. Avoid paint application outside when weather conditions are threatening, and late in the afternoon when there is a threat of moisture condensing on wet paint. Do not paint if surface temperature is within 50ºF of the dew point. Brush: High-quality Synthetic Bristle only. Roller: High-quality Short Nap Cover (Less than ½”). Spray: Thin with up to 8 oz per gallon of clean water. For HVLP, use a #12 air cap and needle. If spraying with an airless or conventional sprayer, atomization could infuse the product with air that may become entrapped in the coating. For that reason, thin with up to 8 oz per gallon of clean water, dial the pump pressure down as much as possible and use a 019-021” tip. Multiple thin coats will provide better results than one heavy application.
Cleanup - Clean hands, brushes, rollers and other equipment with warm, soapy water immediately after use. USE COMPLETELY OR DISPOSE OF PROPERLY. Dry empty containers may be recycled in a can recycling program. Local disposal requirements vary; consult your sanitation department or state-designated environmental agency on disposal options.
