Coverage may vary depending on the roughness, texture, and porosity of surface being treated. Areas in poor condition may require additional coats and will have a lower coverage rate. Sprayer Application: Thin with water up to 10%.

Clean spills and spatters immediately with water. Clean hands and tools immediately after use with water.
Paint & Prime is best applied when temperatures are between 40 to 90 degrees F. with less than 50% humidity on warm sunny days. Consult your weather bureau and never apply before inclement weather.

Read all label instructions before beginning. Always run a test patch first in an inconspicuous area, to ensure that proper adhesion and drying occurs and the product works to your satisfaction. Careful and complete preparation will ensure the best results. The surface must be clean, dry and relatively free from all dust, grease, wax, dirt, oil, chalk, solvents, loose paint, wallpaper and paste. Wash surface thoroughly. Heavily rusted areas may be wire brushed or sanded until smooth. Mold and mildew areas may be cleaned with an appropriate cleaner (i.e. 5-10% bleach and water solution). Paint & Prime has mildew inhibitors and will kill most fungus and algae. When priming over stains, remove as much of the stain as possible by washing or sanding the surface. For exterior peeling, power wash surfaces first and sand until smooth. Follow standard painting practices while preparing the surface.

For best results use two coats of Paint & Prime in difficult areas. If the stain persists recoat again. Apply with a brush, roller or sprayer. Paint & Prime may be applied to stained areas only, but best results are obtained by priming the entire surface. This will extend the coverage and life span of the topcoat. Coverage will vary depending on the porosity of the surface.


Topcoat with Ames’ Paint & Prime. Other fine quality latex paints may also be used as the final coat. Do not topcoat with solvent-borne paints or laquers.


The rate of coverage is dependent upon the surface condition. Paint & Prime covers 300-500 sq. ft./gallon/coat depending on the roughness, texture, and porosity of surface being treated. Areas in poor condition may require additional coats and will have a lower coverage rate. Sprayer Application: Thin with water up to 10%.
