SURFACE PREPARATION:
  
   a. Proper product selection, surface preparation, and application affect coating performance.
        Coating integrity and service life will be reduced because of improperly prepared surfaces.  
        Selection and implementation of proper surface preparation ensures coating adhesion to the 
        substrate and prolongs the service life of the coating system. 

   b. Selection of the proper method of surface preparation depends on the substrate, the environment, 
        and the expected service life of the coating system. Economics, surface contamination, and the 
        effect on the substrate will also influence the selection of surface preparation methods. 

   c. New cellular vinyl composite board: The surface must be clean, dry, scuff sanded and in sound 
        condition. Remove oil, dust, dirt, or other contamination to ensure good - adhesion. Clean 
        thoroughly by scrubbing with a warm, soapy water solution. Rinse thoroughly. Painting with 
        darker colors may cause siding to warp, unless SuperPaint® VinylSafe™ is used.
  
   d. Previously Coated Surfaces: Maintenance painting will frequently not permit or require complete 
        removal of all old coatings. However, all surface contamination such as oil, grease, loose paint, 
        mill scale, dirt, foreign matter, rust, mold, mildew, loose mortar, efflorescence, and sealers must 
        be removed to assure sound bonding to the tightly adhering old paint.

        Glossy paint surfaces must be clean and dull before repainting. Thorough washing with an 
        abrasive cleanser may clean and dull in one operation, or, wash thoroughly and dull by sanding. 
        Spot prime any bare areas with an appropriate primer.

        Note that any surface preparation short of total removal of the old coating may compromise the 
        service length of the system. Check for compatibility of the recommended coating system by 
        applying a test patch, covering at least 2 to 3 square feet. Allow surface to dry one week before 
        testing adhesion per ASTM D3359. If the coating system is incompatible, complete removal is 
        required.

        WARNING! Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or 
        fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other 
        adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or 
        other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment, such as a properly 
        fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and cleanup. For more information, 
        call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health 
        authority.

        Remove mildew before painting by washing with a solution of 1 part liquid Household bleach and 
        3 parts of warm water. Apply the solution and scrub the mildewed area. Allow the solution to 
        remain on the surface for 10 minutes; however, do not allow the solution to dry on the surface. 
        Rinse thoroughly with clean water and allow the surface to dry 48 hours before painting. Wear 
        protective glasses or goggles, waterproof gloves, and protective clothing. Quickly wash off any of 
        the solution that comes in contact with your skin. Do not add detergents or ammonia to the 
        bleach/water solution.

   e. No exterior painting should take place immediately after a rain, during foggy weather, when rain 
        is predicted, or when the temperature is below 50°F unless the specified product is designed for 
        the marginal conditions.

INSTALLATION

   a. Apply all coatings and materials with manufacturer’s specifications in mind. Mix and thin         
        coatings according to manufacturer’s recommendation. It is recommended that the door shall be 
        primed and finished on all sides. It is also required that all door sections be finished prior to 
        installation. 

   b.  Do not apply to wet or damp surfaces.
        1. Test new substrate for moisture content. 
        2. Do not leave or store unfinished doors outside. 
        3. Cellular vinyl composite board should not be finished under very humid conditions.

   c. Apply coatings using methods recommended by the manufacturer. 
  
   d. Uniformly apply coatings without runs, drips, or sags, without brush marks, and with consistent 
        sheen. Use non-plasticizing flexible PVC weather stripping. 

   e. Apply coatings at spread rates required to achieve the manufacturer’s recommended dry film 
        thickness.

   f. Regardless of number of coats specified, apply as many coats as necessary for complete hide, 
        and uniform appearance. 

PROTECTION

   a. Protect finished coatings from damage until completion of project.

   b. Touch-up damaged coatings after substantial completion, following manufacturer's 
        recommendation for touch up or repair of damaged coatings. Repair any defects that will hinder 
        the performance of the coatings.
