The surface must be clean, dry and free of all loose, peeling or cracking paint. Thoroughly clean surface and remove wax and grease with an all-purpose cleaner (TSP or substitute), scouring powder, wax remover or diluted ammonia. Wire brush or scrape chipped or peeling paint. Rough or repaired wood surfaces should be sanded smooth. Prime bare, new wood with an enamel undercoater. Prime badly worn spots on old wood with a thinned first coat of Latex Porch & Floor Enamel. All rust must be removed from metal prior to painting. Prime all iron and steel with a rust inhibiting metal primer. Remove gloss from previously painted surfaces with gloss remover or by sanding. For new concrete, allow surface to cure at least 60 days before painting. Then, acid etch with muriatic acid (see etching instructions and read all cautions on etching packages). Unpainted or smooth-worn concrete should also be etched. After acid etching, apply two coats of Latex Porch & Floor Enamel – the first coat thinned with 1 pint water per gallon of paint. Etching Instructions: New, unpainted or smooth-worn concrete must be etched with a muriatic acid solution for proper penetration and adhesion. Before preparing acid solution, READ ALL CAUTIONS AND WARNINGS on acid packaging. Wear appropriate protective clothing, goggles and rubber gloves when handling acid. Mix 1 quart muriatic acid and 1 gallon of water. Flush floor with acid solution. DO NOT BREATHE VAPORS and make certain there is good ventilation. After 30 minutes, or when acid solution stops bubbling, rinse with water while scrubbing floor with stiff broom to remove all powdery residue. Allow to dry.
Application and Clean-up:
Paint only when surface and air temperatures are above 50 °F (10 ºC). Sir paint thoroughly before and during use. If using more than one can of the same color, intermix to maintain color consistency. To increase traction on stairs and other areas where accidental slips may occur, add Valspar Anti-Skid Additive or one cup of clean, dry sand when applying the finishing coat. Stir frequently during application to avoid setting. Use a premium quality roller, polyester brush, pad applicator or airless sprayer. DO NOT USE SAND IF SPRAYING. Apply liberally over the full length of the surface to avoid lap marks. If applied by airless sprayer, back roll to ensure proper penetration. Finish with long, even strokes in one direction. Do not allow water to pond or puddle on new painted surfaces. Always use a mild detergent and soft sponge when cleaning the surface. Stubborn stains may require the use of an ammoniated household cleaner. Do not use cleaners containing abrasives or abrasive scouring pads to clean the surface.
