- Caulk windows, doors and other openings. Allow new stucco, plaster and masonry to cure for 30 days before painting.
- Use BEHR ULTRA™ paint as a primer for repaired or uncoated surfaces, including woods that contain tannins (two primer coats required for redwood and cedar) and heavily stained areas.
- Lock in stains with the first primer coat; if necessary, apply a second primer coat of BEHR ULTRA.
- For drastic color changes or when applying deep colors denoted with a dagger (†) on the color chip, apply a tinted primer coat of BEHR ULTRA if needed.
- Apply product on dry substrates when air and surface temperatures are between 35°-90°F (2°-32°C) and will remain between 35°-90°F (2°-32°C) for at least 4 hours after applying.
- Do not paint when rain or heavy condensation is expected.
- Stir paint occasionally. Intermix containers of same product to ensure color and sheen uniformity.
- On semi-smooth surfaces, use a high quality 3/8-1/2” nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer (.015-.021” spray tip, 60 mesh filter).
- On rough surfaces, use a high quality 3/4-1” nap roller cover.
- Do not thin if using a roller or brush; however, if using a sprayer and thinning is required, thin with water at a rate of no more than 1/2 pint per gallon.
- Certain colors may require more than one coat for complete hide.
- On heavy stains and woods that contain tannins, allow 12-16 hours of dry time between coats. Cooler temperatures or higher humidity may prolong drying time.
- After 4 weeks, cured paint film may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent.
- Dry paint film is mildew resistant.
- When applying to vinyl, color choice must be the same color or lighter than the existing color. Do not use on floors.
