How to Apply Zinsser Perma-White Mold & Mildew-Proof Exterior Paint
Surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free of dust, dirt, excessive chalky material, grime, grease, oil, wax, mildew, wallpaper adhesive, or any contamination that may interfere with adhesion. If unsure of cleanliness, always wash surface with household ammonia and water solution, appropriate cleaning solution or solvent (do not use TSP as a cleaner). Remove any peeling and/or unsound coatings. Sand any remaining paint film edges smooth. Remove existing stains by washing, sanding, scraping, etc. Countersink exposed nail heads, spot prime and fill all nail holes and gouges with Ready-Patch® spackling compound or equally suitable material.
Two coats are required for proper performance and mold & mildew-proof resistance. Apply only when air, material, and surface temperatures are between 50-90ºF (10-32ºC) and the relative humidity is below 80%. Thoroughly mix to ensure any settled pigment is re-dispersed before using. Apply with a synthetic (nylon, polyester or blend) bristle brush, roller, pad applicator or airless sprayer. Follow manufacturer's instructions when using spray equipment. For airless spraying use a 0.017" tip at 2000 to 2600 psi. Wear NIOSH approved respirator and provide adequate ventilation.
