Topcoating for Success
Prior to applying topcoat, be sure the painted surface has dried at least 4 hours. Our Acrylic Mineral Paint and Topcoat products dry from the inside out. Even though the outside surface area may be dry to the touch you want to allow ample time for the products to properly dry prior to applying topcoat. If the surface is glazed, wait 24 hours or until the glaze is thoroughly dry. For increased smoothness, if desired, use 400 grit sandpaper on your painted work prior to using topcoat. Wipe off the dust with a lint free cloth or use a damp cloth and let the surface dry. Extreme Guard Topcoat is not recommended for bare metal surfaces.
Failure to properly prep some wooden surfaces may result in a discoloration of the topcoat, especially noticeable on light paint colors. Certain wood species (for example: Oak, Cherry, Popular and Mahogany) have tannins that can leach from the wood to the surface causing a yellowing or brownish look. It is NOT the topcoat yellowing. This yellowing or brownish look problem can happen with Varnish, Lacquer, and many topcoat products. While curing, these products dry from within and have a tenacity to pull out the tannin material. Proper prep can eliminate this problem. A good practice is to use two coats of our Sure Prep Blocking Primer or Premium Plus 2-in-1 Primer.
Applying Topcoat Your Project:
Do not shake but stir thoroughly before use. If you accidentally shake, let container sit for one hour prior to use to avoid bubbles on your project. Apply in even thin layers. Be sure Paint Couture Paint has fully dried at least four hours and glazed pieces 24 hours before applying topcoat. Apply Paint Couture Extreme Guard Topcoat with a good quality synthetic brush, foam brush, or roller, or use a sprayer. It may be lightly sanded 45 minutes after the first coat. If adding a second coat of Extreme Guard Topcoat, allow the first coat to dry for two hours. Once dry, lightly sand with 400 grit sandpaper, wipe away any dust residue, then apply the second coat. Paint Couture Topcoat products are recommended for a more durable finish. Not for use on decks or floor surfaces.

Use with adequate ventilation. Do not take internally. Stir completely, DO NOT SHAKE. If accidentally shaken and you see a lot of bubbles let the product sit for one hour. Close container after each use and pour out what you need, pour Extreme Guard Topcoat into a paint tray or container. Do not use Extreme Guard Topcoat directly out of this container. Avoid contact with eyes and prolonged contact with skin. If accidentally swallowed, contact a physician or the local poison control center. Keep out of reach of children. Use and store between 50°-90°F. Do not apply in direct sunlight or near air movement as this will impact the self leveling ability of the topcoat.
