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

Bulls-Eye 1-2-3 Deep Tint seals porous surfaces and
provides a smooth and even finish to extend the coverage
of topcoats ad provide uniform and consistent sheen.
Excellent for use on moderately chalked aluminum or
previously painted aluminum siding and trim.
Effectively blocks stains from grease, asphalt, crayon,
graffiti as well as minor rust stains, light water stains and

Bulls-Eye 1-2-3 Deep Tint Primer is not recommended for
exterior applications such as floors, decks, roof surfaces or
any surface subject to immersion or prolonged contact
with water. Do not box or intermix Bulls-Eye 1-2-3 DeepTint

Apply only when air, material, and surface temperatures
are between 50-90ºF (10-32ºC) andthe relative humidity
is below 85%. Thoroughly mix 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 finishes. For best results,
prime entire surface before painting. Apply with a
synthetic (nylon, polyester or blend) bristle
brush, roller, or airless sprayer. Follow manufacturer's
instructions when using spray equipment. For airless
spraying use a 0.017" tip at 2000 to 2500 psi. Wear
