  • Maximum recoating time is 1-2 months depending on temperature and curing conditions. If exceeded, contact Rawlins on Tech - 0113 2455450 (option 2) or [email protected] for further information about recoating procedures



Surface Preparation


General

  • Surfaces 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

Steel

  • For immersion service, abrasive blast cleaning to min. Sa 2 (ISO 8501-1)
  • For non-immersion service, hand- or power tool cleaning to min. St 2 (ISO 8501-1) is acceptable
  • Alternatively, ultra-high pressure water jetting to Nace No. 7 min. C Vis WJ-2. Max flash rust; C Vis WJ-2M



Application Methods

Application Conditions


Product Conditions
Condition Material Surface Ambient Humidity
Minimum 5°C (41°F) 2°C (35°F) 2°C (35°F) 0%
Maximum 35°C (95°F) 50°C (122°F) 40°C (104°F) 85%



  • Industry standards are for substrate temperatures to be 5°F above the dew point
  • Condensation due to substrate temperatures below the dew point can cause flash rusting on prepared steel
  • Special application techniques may be required above or below normal application conditions



Health and Safety


Clean Up

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

Safety

  • Read and follow all caution statements on this product data sheet and on the safety data sheet for this product
  • Employ normal workmanlike safety precautions

Ventilation
