Low temperature and high humidity will adversely affect application, drying and performance of any coating.

Surface Preparation

  • Ensure all surfaces are clean, dry and free from grease, oil and any other contaminates.
  • Bare steel should be free from dust, rust and scale.
  • Blast cleaning to SA 2½ is recommended.
  • If blast cleaning is impractical, mechanical cleaning should be employed as hand cleaning does not clean the steel to the required degree.
  • Any oil or grease should be removed with Coo-Var Universal Degreaser Cleaner before de-rusting.
  • Where blast cleaning is carried out after assembly, special attention must be paid to edges, corners, nuts, bolts, welds etc.
  • Welds should, if necessary be ground and all weld spatter, slag etc. must be removed.

Preceeding Coat

  • N/A

Subsequent Coat

  • Suitable topcoat, e.g Teamac Rapidry Gloss.


  • Mix well before use.

Application Conditions

  • As dictated by normal good painting practice.
  • Care must be taken during application that the temperature is above the dew point to avoid any contamination.
  • In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.
