Cleaning Thinner:



Surface Preparation:

• The following is a basic guide only.
• Do not paint pool without following all instructions printed in this Chlorinated Rubber Pool Painting Guide.
• If a previous paint exists and is in good condition, determine the type of pool paint previously used. 
• Surfaces to be painted must be clean, dry and free from all oils and grease. 
• Hand scrub at the water line where oils from sun tan lotion will tend to migrate.
Unpainted Concrete / Plaster / Tiles:
• Following a thorough cleaning, new or previously unpainted concrete pools must be cleaned. 
• Then thoroughly triple rinse with clean water and allow to dry over 3 days. 
• It is extremely important to ensure that all traces of any type of residue are thoroughly neutralized and rinsed away.
Painted Concrete / Plaster / Tiles: 
• Scrub surface to get rid of any Chalk, Dirt, Oil, Grease, Suntan or Watermarks. 
• Flush with plenty of Clean Potable water and let dry completely. 
• Sand the surface with 150 – 180 Grit sandpaper for better adhesion of first coat to the surface. 
• Rinse off all loose particles, flakes and dust and let dry.
Primer/ Finish Systems:
Self Priming



• Painting over many old layers of pool paint is not recommended and could result in premature adhesion loss. 
• Once multiple layers of paint have been applied and have aged, consideration should be given to removing all old layers back down to the substrate prior to the next paint application.
• When in doubt, check the adhesion of previous paint layers before proceeding.


• Stir product thoroughly to assure uniform pigment dispersion. 
• This product is self-priming on the substrates listed above. 
• This product is formulated to be applied without thinning.
• Do not thin as this would result in the product exceeding any VOC regulations in effect where it is being applied. 
• This product can be applied by Brush, Roller or Spray. Roller application is preferred. 
• Follow spread rate recommendations. 
• Do not apply heavier than recommendations. 
• Always apply minimum two coats of pool paint after applying a self priming coat.
• Brush: Yes
• Roller: Yes
• Conventional Air Spray: Yes
• Airless Spray: Yes
• NOTE: If more than 72 hours @ 22°C elapses between coats, sand the film to provide sufficient profile (150-180 grit). 



• All glossy surfaces can be slippery. Where non skid properties are required, a non skid additive should be used.
• Allow at least 7 days after the final applied coat before filling the pool with water. 10-14 days for indoor pools. 
• Provide forced air flow by using fans to circulate air in the pool. This is especially important in the deep end of an indoor pool, where solvent vapors from the pool paint will collect and slow final curing. 
• If rain water gets into the pool prior to the completion of full cure, pump out the rain water as soon as possible.
• All pool paints will eventually fade in color when exposed to chlorine. 
• Maximum color fastness can be achieved by maintaining proper chemical balances. Do not over-chlorinate. 
• After refilling pool, add concentrated chlorine or chlorine shock through a chlorinator or into the skimmer trap to avoid having concentrated chlorine come in contact with the new paint.
• Never cover the pool with a tarp or solar blanket during cure, as this could trap solvent in the coating.


Clean Up:

• Clean equipment with Xylene base thinner.
• Disposal of wastes containing either organic solvents or free-liquids in landfills is prohibited.


Environmental Health and Safety Information:

• Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. 
• Vapors are heavier than air and may travel along ground or may be moved by ventilation and ignited by pilot lights, or other flames, sparks, heaters, or static discharge.
• Vapors may cause flash fire.
• Do not smoke.
• Extinguish all flames and pilot lights. Turn off stoves, heaters, electric motors and other sources of ignition during use and until all vapors are gone. 
• Prevent build-up of vapors by opening all windows and doors to achieve cross-ventilation.
Use only with adequate ventilation:
• Use only where airflow will keep vapors from building up in or near the work area in adjoining rooms. 
• Do not breathe vapors, spray mist or sanding dust. 
• Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. 
• To avoid breathing vapors or spray mist, open windows and doors or use other means to ensure fresh air entry during application and drying. 
• If you experience eye watering, headache or dizziness or if air monitoring demonstrates vapor levels are above the applicable limits, wear an appropriate, properly fitted respirator during and after application.
• Follow respirator manufacturer’s directions for respirator use. 
• Close container after each use.
• Wash thoroughly after handling.
• If affected by inhalation of vapors or spray mist, remove to fresh air. 
• In case of eye contact, immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and get medical attention immediately.
• For skin, wash thoroughly with soap and water. 
• If symptoms persist, seek medical attention. 
• If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately.
• IN CASE OF FIRE – Use foam, CO2, dry chemical or water fog.
• SPILL– Absorb with inert material and dispose off as specified under “Clean Up”.
