Drying Times

Curing Schedule
Surface Temp. & 50% Relative Humidity Dust Free Dry to Topcoat Final Cure
10°C 90 Minutes 24 Hours 12 Days
16°C 45 Minutes 12 hours 6 Days
24°C 25 Minutes 6 Hours 3 Days
32°C 15 Minutes 3 hours 2 Days

  • These times are based on 75 micron dry film thickness.
  • Higher film thickness, insufficient ventilation or cooler temperatures will require longer cure times and could result in solvent entrapment and premature failure.
  • Maximum recoat time is 30 days for epoxy and 90 days for polyurethanes at 24°C
  • If the maximum recoat time is exceeded, the surface must be abraded by sweep blasting or sanding before the application of additional coats.

Surface Preparation


  • Surface must be clean and dry.
  • Employ adequate methods to remove dirt, dust, oil and all other contaminants that could interfere with adhesion of the coating.


  • Sa2½ with a 25-50 micron surface profile
  • St3 for Touch-up

Galvanised Steel

  • SSPC-SP1 and sweep-blast according to Sa1

Previously Painted Surfaces

  • Lightly sand or abrade to roughen surface and degloss the surface.
  • Existing paint must attain a minimum 3B rating accordance with ASTM D3359 “X-Scribe” adhesion test

Application Conditions

Product Conditions
Condition Material Surface Ambient Humidity
Normal 18-29°C 18-29°C 18-32°C 0-65%
Minimum 13°C 10°C 10°C 0%
Maximum 32°C 57°C 43°C 90%

  • This product simply requires the substrate temperature to be 3°C above the dew point.
  • Condensation due to substrate temperatures below the dew point can cause flash rusting on prepared steel and interfere with proper adhesion to the substrate.
  • Special application techniques may be required above or below normal application conditions.

Health & Safety

Clean Up

  • Use Thinner 2, Thinner or Acetone
  • In case of spillage, absorb and dispose of in accordance with local applicable regulations.


  • Read and follow all caution statements on this product data sheet and on the MSDS for this product.
  • Employ normal workmanlike safety precautions.
  • Hypersensitive persons should wear protective clothing, gloves and use protective cream on face, hands and all exposed areas.


  • When used in enclosed areas and product is thinned, thorough air circulation must be used during and after application until the coating is cured.
  • The ventilation system should be capable of preventing the solvent vapor concentration from reaching the lower explosion limit for the solvents used.
  • User should test and monitor exposure levels to insure all personnel are below guidelines.


  • This product contains flammable solvents
  • Keep away from sparks and open flames
  • All electrical equipment and installations should be made and grounded in accordance with applicable regulations.
  • In areas where explosion hazards exist, workmen should be required to use nonferrous tools and wear conductive and non-sparking shoes.
  • Refer to the safety data sheet in the attachments section above for further details.
