Rosco Premiere Clear is an advanced, water-borne urethane coating suitable for sealing and protecting painted finishes, floors and high-traffic surfaces. When cured, this clear finish provides long lasting durability, hardness and abrasion resistance in an environmentally safe, VOC compliant coating. Premiere Clear is virtually odorless and may be thinned with water. In addition to protective top coats, it is excellent for use in faux finish or glazing applications. Premiere Clear is perfect for almost any project in stage, film, decorative and commercial arenas.
Suggested Use: Surface to be coated must be clean and free of dust, dirt, wax, grease or any other contamination that could affect proper adhesion and curing. When applying over glossy surfaces, roughen the undercoat by sanding with fine sandpaper or steel wool. New wood must be sanded to open up the grain. When treating bare wood, excellent results can be achieved by first applying Premiere Clear Gloss finish to seal the grain, followed by 2 coats of Premiere Clear in the desired sheen. Premiere Clear should not be used over other sealers or stains containing stearates, silicone, or wax.
Application: Rosco Premiere Clear may be applied by brush, short nap roller, or spray. Stir product before and occasionally during application. DO NOT SHAKE! Apply in thin coats. When rolling, use a roller cover with 1/4" or thinner nap for best results. For spray applications, thin Premiere Clear up to 20% with clean water. Spray on in thin uniform coats. Avoid excessive film build up in recessed areas or yellowing may occur. If Premiere Clear is applied in excessively thick coats, or under conditions of extremely high humidity the film may remain "milky or clouded" for an extended period of time. To avoid this, apply only in thin coats, allowing each coat to dry before applying the next coat. Woods containing high levels of tannic acid (e.g. redwood, cedar, red oak, etc) may cause a discoloration in the clear film. Test before applying on an entire project. Sand lightly with fine sandpaper between coats of Premiere Clear.
Important Note: Rosco Premiere Clear provides a highly durable urethane finish perfect for sealing floors in entertainment and live event venues as well as withstanding light or moderate commercial traffic. A floor coat is ready for light use after 12 hours, but allow 24 hours to cure. Rosco Premiere Clear is suitable for exterior use in semi-protected environments however long term exposure to direct sunlight is not recommended.
Coverage: One gallon of Rosco Premiere Clear covers approximately 450 square feet depending on the surface coated and the thickness of the application.
Clean-Up: Use warm water and mild soap then rinse with clean water.
