This is truly one of the finest quality general purpose coatings available
today. DIAMONDHARD ACRYLIC ENAMEL features superior adhesion to almost
any interior or exterior surface with a resilient durable finish that
lasts for years. This is a water base formula that offers added convenience
and safety in a product that will out perform conventional oil base
paints in most situations.
• Out performs oil base paint
• Rust Inhibiting
• Low odor, non-flammable
• Tough durable acrylic finish
• Levels to a beautiful smooth finish
• Superior gloss and color retention
GENERAL: Surfaces to be painted must be clean, free of dirt, chalk,
grease, loose paint and all other residue or contaminants. Scrape, wire
brush and sand to remove loose or unsound paint layers. Clean the surface
by washing with a low sudsing detergent and water. Remove mildew by
washing with a solution of household bleach and water (1:3). Rinse thoroughly.
Allow surfaces treated with bleach solution to dry at least 48 hours
before painting. Stains from ink, smoke, water and grease should be
sealed with a good stain killing primer. WOOD: This product can be applied
directly to wood. But for best appearance, use an oil base enamel undercoater
or acrylic primer before applying the finish coat(s). METAL: Clean new
metals with a solvent such as mineral spirits to remove grease and oily
residue. Allow solvent cleaned surfaces to dry completely. Remove all
rust by wire brushing, sanding or chemical treatment. On ferrous metals
subject to corrosive conditions or where rust has been a recurring problem,
use a rust inhibiting primer. No primer is required for aluminum. MASONRY,
BRICK AND CONCRETE, DRYWALL AND OTHER SURFACES: This coating will adhere
to a wide variety of other surfaces. If you are painting a difficult
or unusual surface, first paint a small area, allow to cure for 5 days,
and test for adhesion by apply masking tape to the surface then removing
the tape in a quick upward motion. If the finish does not lift, you
have a suitable surface for painting. See label for additional details.
Do not apply at temperatures below 50°F. Avoid painting in direct
sunlight or during unusually hot or windy conditions. Do not paint exterior
surfaces at night or during damp or rainy weather. Apply this product
with a good quality polyester brush or premium short nap (3/16”-1/4”)
roller. Apply a full even coat, brushing out to avoid runs and sags.
This product provides superior leveling which will eliminate brush marks
as it dries. Avoid “over burshing” after the paint has begun
to dry or tack. If you must stop painting before finishing your project,
stop at a corner, edge or other breakpoint, rather than the middle of
a surface. If applying with airless spray equipment, apply at package
consistency, unthinned. A .013-.015 tip at 1,200-1,800 PSI is recommended.
For conventional spray, thin sparingly with clean water up to one pint
per gallon. If applying more than one can of product, intermix or “box”
the paint together to ensure maximum color uniformity.
