Preparation and Application.
For optimum results, surfaces must be clean, dry, and free from grease, dirt, oil, wax, rust, loose material and surface contamination. Use recommended RustOleum cleanng solutions. Treat knots and resinous areas with RustOleum Pegaprim Isofix
Use a good quality filler such a Prestonett flexible filler for filling cracks, nail holes, blemishes and for levelling uneven surfaces.
Ensure that existing painted and filled surfaces are thoroughly sanded smooth.
Note: Discoloration of paint, especially noticeable within light colours, may occur over knots and resinous areas present in the wood.
Particular attention with regards to preparation should be given to wood such as oak, teak, cedar, douglas fir, mahogany and idigbo which contain oil and water-soluble tannin which may impair the drying, hardening or adhesion of surface coatings and discolour the finished surface.
Prime bare interior wood overall and, if necessary, spot prime all bare areas on previously painted surfaces with RustOleum Pegalink Primer or RustOleum Pegaprim Isofix. Pegaprim Isofix is preferable on wood that contains substances which may ‘bleed through’ and cause staining to the finished surface.
