Notes:

  • Refer below for more details on spreading rate and film thickness, overcoating intervals and curing times

Surface Preparation


Recommended Substrate Conditions and Temperatures

Substrate conditions

  • Suitable high performance anticorrosive tiecoats
  • Previous coat must be sound, dry and free from any contamination

Substrate Temperature & Application Conditions


  • Substrate temperature during application and curing should be at least 3°C (5°F) above dew point

Application


Instructions for Use

  • Stir well before use
  • The temperature of the paint should preferably be above 15°C (59°F), otherwise extra thinner may be required to obtain application viscosity
  • Adding too much thinner results in reduced sag resistance

 

Airless Spray


Recommended thinner

Volume of thinner

  • 0 - 3%, depending on required thickness and application conditions

Nozzle orifice

  • Approx. 0.53 – 0.69 mm (0.021 – 0.027 in)

Nozzle pressure

  • 12.0 - 15.0 MPa (approx. 120 - 150 bar; 1741 - 2176 p.s.i.)

 

Brush/roller


  • Only for touch-up and repair
  • Multicoat roller or brush application is not recommended. Maximum DFT achievable by brush or roller is 50 µm (2.0 mils)

Recommended thinner

  • PPG Thinner 21-06

Volume of thinner

  • 0 – 3%

 

Cleaning Solvent


  • Thinner 21-06

Spreading Rate and Film Thickness


Spreading rate and film thickness

DFT Theoretical spreading rate
75 µm (3.0 mils) 7.3 m²/l (294 ft²/US gal)
100 µm (4.0 mils) 5.5 m²/l (221 ft²/US gal)
160 µm (6.3 mils) 3.4 m²/l (140 ft²/US gal)

 

Overcoating interval for DFT up to 160 µm (6.3 mils)


Overcoating with... Interval 5°C (41°F) 10°C (50°F) 20°C (68°F) 30°C (86°F)
Itself Minimum 12 hours 10 hours 6 hours 4 hours
Refloating - Minimum 24 hours 12 hours 8 hours 6 hours

Notes:

  • The above data is a fair indication for normal application conditions
  • Longer drying times may be necessary at higher DFT and under unfavourable atmospheric conditions
  • For systems with more than two layers of antifouling minimum drying time before overcoating and minimum time before refloating should be increased

Safety Precautions


  • For paint and recommended thinners, see information sheets information sheet 1430, information sheet 1431 and the relevant Material Safety Data Sheets in the attachments section above
  • This is a solvent-borne paint and care should be taken to avoid inhalation of spray mist or vapor, as well as contact between the wet paint and exposed skin or eyes
