Product Description

Cover Stain is the only interior / exterior primer, sealer, stain sealer and bond coat that dries for recoat in only two hours. Cover Stain is especially effective on nicotine and water stains. New wood trim can be primed, sanded and topcoated the same day, saving time and money. On interior surfaces, Cover Stain dries quickly and has great hiding power providing outstanding stain killing and enamel undercoating performance. Stains of all kinds are permanently sealed so topcoats are blemish free. On exterior surfaces, Cover Stain has a unique formulation that delivers full penetration and flexibility on all surfaces, especially dimensionally unstable wood paneling and trim, where few oil-based primers can succeed. Cover Stain resists cracking and peeling and is compatible with all decorative top coats.

Application - Shake or stir before using. Eliminate all sources of ignition. Apply with a natural or synthetic bristle brush, roller, pad or sprayer. Follow manufacturers instructions when using spray equipment. When spraying Cover-Stain wear an approved respirator and provide adequate ventilation. Apply when air and surface temperature is between 5- 32C and relative humidity is less than 85%.

Coverage - 9.8m2 per litre. Coverage may vary depending upon method of application and surface porosity.

Drying Time - At normal temperatures Cover-Stain will dry to touch in 30 minutes and can be re-coated after two hours. Topcoat within 30 days. Lower temperatures, higher humidity and the addition of tint will prolong dry and cure time.
