Surface Preparation – The faux finished or decorative painted surface must be fully cured prior to application
(approximately 24 hours). If applying over porous surfaces, (such as stone or plaster finishes) dilute the Dead Flat Varnish 10% with water and apply in thin coats until the surface is sealed.
Note: Not intended for use over oil base finishes.
Application – Dead Flat Varnish can be applied by brush, roller or spray equipment. Do not apply when air and surface temperature are below 50ºF (10ºC) or high humidity conditions exist. Optimal application conditions are 60ºF - 80ºF (16ºC - 27ºC) and 30% - 60% relative humidity. For most applications thinning is unnecessary. Stir thoroughly before use. Do Not Shake.
Brushing: Use a high-quality synthetic bristle brush.
Rolling: Use a high-quality, soft short nap roller.
Spraying: Use a HVLP gun, conventional cup gun or airless spray system. If thinning is necessary, add up to 10% (3fl. oz./88.5 ml) of water per quart/946 ml of Dead Flat Varnish. For best results and maximum protection,a minimum of 2 coats is recommended. For exterior surfaces, use Exterior Dead Flat Varnish.
Dry Times – Dry to touch in 30 minutes. Recoat time is approximately two hours. Full cure time is 12 hours.
Note: Thicker film, temperature below 60ºF (16ºC) and relative humidity above 50% may cause slower dry times.
Coverage – Approximately 350 to 450 square feet per Gal.,31.5-40.5m²/3.78 L.
