Preparation

Always ensure the surface to be treated is clean, dry, and free from any dust or possible contaminates.

  • Remove any loose or peeling paint or wallpaper by sanding or scraping the surface. (Always take special care when sanding or scraping old surfaces, ensure to wear a suitable face covering to avoid inhalation.)
  • Seal any stains with Zinsser Stain Killing Primer-Sealer
  • Cut away loose or torn drywall facing paper with a razor or sand back with 80-grit paper until a sound area is reached. If drywall is gouged, remove loose pieces of gypsum core
  • Remove loose wallcovering and residual wallcovering adhesive using DIF Wallpaper Stripper
  • Skim coated or spackled areas should be sanded smooth using 100 grit sandpaper
Application

Before applying stir the product thoroughly and test a small area.

  • For best results use a quality nylon/polyester/synthetic brush with flagged tips. A roller can be used we recommend a 3/8” or less synthetic roller
  • Do not overload the brush
  • Apply Gardz to walls from the bottom up to prevent product from running down the wall
  • Brush out any runs as they occur
  • When applying to ceilings do not press hard or the product will drip out of the roller
  • For ceiling applications where a roller would be too messy Gardz may be applied using a power sprayer or garden sprayer
  • Maintain a distance of at least 45 to 60cm between the spray tip and the surface for pressure sprayers and 30 – 45 cm for garden sprayers

Note: Some types of wallpaper and translucent wallcoverings may require an additional coat of an opaque primer after use of Zinsser Gardz. Always follow the manufacturer instructions found on the tin.
