Recommended Topcoats

If it can be guaranteed that application and subsequent in-service conditions will be in a C1 environment as defined in ISO 12944-2:2007, then no topcoat is required.

For any other situation a topcoat must be applied, consult our Technical Team for advice.

Additional Notes

In common with other water based coatings, the drying of this material is retarded by high humidity conditions. Lack of air movement also slows down the drying process, and under such conditions it is advisable to introduce some method of circulating air over the coated surface in order to speed up the drying. A ventilated air speed of 2 metres per second is recommended.

Numerical values quoted for physical data may vary slightly from batch to batch.
