Minimal influence on pot-life and other properties
Recoating time for Rust-Oleum 9600 Rust-O-Thane Polyurethane will be reduced when using Rust-Oleum 9996 Rust-O-Thane Accelerator from 16 to 4 hours. Touch dry time will be reduced from 6 to 1 hour and full hardness will be accelerated by 2 days.
Rust-Oleum 9996 Rust-O-Thane Accelerator should be used in the Rust-O-Thane 9600 or 9900 system in quantities of 3 - 5%.
Drying times at 20°C/50% RH
Without accelerator: To touch: 6 hours To handle: 12 hours To recoat: After 8 hours, within 72 hours Full hardness 7 days
With 4 - 5% accelerator: To touch: 2 hours To handle 3 hours To recoat: After 4 hours, within 48 hours Full hardness 5 days
Directions for use
Stir individual components of the 9900 or 9600 thoroughly before mixing them together. Use the boxing method or a low speed mixer. Add the activator 9996 after the 2 components are thoroughly mixed.
Pot life will be reduced when using the accelerator from 4 to 2 hours for 9600 and from 2 to 1 hour for 9900. Using the accelerator may reduce slightly less gloss development in some colours and a minor reduction in film hardness. All other performances of the coating are not effected. Exceeding amount of accelerator will not significantly reduce drying time and can influence characteristics of the coating.
