MIXING VEGA PRIMER
Mix Vega Primer in a bucket (at least 2.5gal) with an electric drill with a paint stirrer attachment. Stir the Vega Primer (250g pouch) little by little into 2 quarts of clean, cold water. Ensure that all clots are stirred out properly. After an expanding time of approx. 30 minutes, stir again thoroughly and dilute with 6.5 quarts of water.
Apply Vega Primer evenly and generously. Do not spray the Vega Primer or apply with a roller. Apply only the amount of fluid that can be absorbed by the surface. Room temperature during application must be at least 47°F. Use up mixed Vega Primer in one day.
Drying times will vary with temperature and humidity. Dry and safe to coat with Vega products after 8 hours at 68°C and 65% relative humidity.
According to the absorbency of the surface: 250g of powder cover approx. 450 to 650ft².
Accurate consumption values to be determined on site.
The powder can be kept at least 2 years if stored dry.
CLEANING OF TOOLS
Clean tools immediately after use with water or with slightly soapy water.

Many homes and other buildings built before 1978 have lead-based paint. Lead is toxic and must be carefully removed by someone who is knowledgeable about correct removal techniques. Removing old lead paint may release toxic lead dust that can cause serious illness. Please consult the National Lead Information Hotline at 1-880-424-LEAD or visit the EPA’s website at www.epa.gov/lead if you suspect your paint contains lead before attempting renovations.
