Approximately 400sq.ft./gal. (Depending on application
method and surface porosity)
Surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free of any
contamination, mildew, scaling paint, loose rust, heavy
chalking, excessive oil and other contaminants such as wax
or wallpaper paste which will interfere with adhesion. If unsure
of cleanliness, always wash surface with an appropriate
cleaner or solvent. DO NOT USE TSP. Always test a small
area for acceptable adhesion. For general oil and water-
based stain blocking, use a Zinsser stain blocking primer such
as Zinsser Smart Prime or Zinsser Bulls-Eye 1-2-3® Plus.
Spot prime knots and severe stains with Zinsser B-I-N®Shellac
-based Primer-Sealer before full surface priming with BONDZ.
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. 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 onto www.epa.gov/lead.
Mix thoroughly to ensure any settled pigment is re-dispersed.
DO NOT THIN.
Apply only when air, material, and surface temperatures are
between 36-90ºF (2-32ºC) and the surface temperature is at
least 5ºF (3ºC) above the dew point. The relative humidity
should not be greater than 85%. Mix thoroughly to ensure any
settled pigment is re-dispersed before using.
In most cases only one coat is necessary to
prime most surfaces. If excessive absorption occurs over very
porous substrates a second coat may be necessary. Spot
priming is recommended only under high-hiding topcoat
paints. For best results, prime entire surface before painting.
Apply with a natural or synthetic bristle brush, roller, pad or
sprayer. Follow manufacturer's instructions when using spray
equipment. For airless spraying use a .017" tip at 2000 to
Clean up spills and paint drips with warm soap and water.
Wipe up splatters before they dry. Follow manufacturer’s
directions to clean spray equipment. Dispose of
unused or unwanted product in accordance with local laws regulating
