Use on properly prepared interior surfaces, such as:

  • Brick
  • Plaster
  • Drywall
  • Wood
  • Masonry

  • Complete all patching, repairs and sanding before applying KILZ GENERAL PURPOSE.
  • The surface must be clean, free of dust, grease, wax, mold, mildew, peeling paint and wallpaper paste. If washing is necessary, use a non-soapy detergent or a TSP substitute. Rinse well and allow to dry.
  • For maximum adhesion, scrape off loose paint and sand to a smooth surface. KILZ PREMIUM and KILZ 2 are recommended for use over properly prepared glossy surfaces.
  • Wash the area with a mildew remover, rinse with water and allow to dry before priming. Note: KILZ PREMIUM and KILZ 2 are recommended for mildew-prone surfaces.
  • KILZ GENERAL PURPOSE INTERIOR may be used on clean, dry, aged masonry surfaces. New masonry must be allowed to cure (dry) at least 30 days before applying KILZ GENERAL PURPOSE INTERIOR.

  • Eye protection is recommended.
  • A small amount of water may be added for spray applications.
  • Stir or mix thoroughly before and occasionally during use.
  • Apply using a brush, roller or sprayer.
  • KILZ GENERAL PURPOSE INTERIOR can be topcoated with latex or oil-based paint after one hour.
  • Apply only if surface, air and product temperatures are between 50°-90°F.

  • May be tinted with up to 2 ounces of universal colorant per gallon. Tinting to a lighter shade than the topcoat is recommended.
  • Coverage varies with porosity. Coverage is up to 300 square feet per gallon on porous surfaces; up to 400 square feet per gallon on smooth, nonporous surfaces.
