faux finished or decorative painted surface must be fully cured prior
to application (approximately 24 hours). If applying over porous
surfaces, (such as stone and plaster finishes) dilute the Exterior Dead
Flat Varnish 10% with water and apply in thin coats until the surface is
NOTE: NOT INTENDED FOR USE OVER OIL BASED FINISHES.
Dead Flat Varnish can be applied by brush, roller, or HVLP spray gun.
Do not apply when air and surface temperature are below 50°F (10°C) or
high humidity conditions exist. Optimal application conditions are 60
to 80°F (16 to 27°C) and 30 to 60% relative humidity. For most
applications, thinning is not necessary. Stir thoroughly
before use. Do not shake.
Brushing: Use a high-quality synthetic bristle brush.
Rolling: Use a high-quality, short-nap roller.
Use a HVLP sprayer powered with an air compressor. If thinning is
necessary, add up to 10% (3 fl. oz./85ml) of water per quart/946ml of
Exterior Dead Flat Varnish. When spraying, use a NIOSH approved
respirator. For best results and maximum protection, two coats of
Exterior Dead Flat Varnish are recommended.
Dry Times: Dry-to-touch is in approximately 30 minutes, re-coat is in approximately two hours, and full cure is in approximately 12 hours. Thicker film, temperature below 60°F (16°C) and relative humidity above 50% may result in slower dry times.
Approximately 87 to 112 square feet per quart (8.0 to 10.5 square meters per 947ml).
