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 solvent 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

  • Can be applied over 2 pack zinc phosphate blast primers which are free from contamination.

Subsequent Coat

  • Most one-pack and two-pack materials.


  • By volume, mix 4 parts of the base with 1 part of the activator, as the ratio supplied. These should be thoroughly mixed together, preferably by slow speed electric mixer and allow to stand for 20 minutes before use. Ensuring the material is thoroughly mixed is very important - poorly mixed product can lead to soft spots and uncured coatings.
  • Thinning is not normally required for airless spray systems.
  • Use within 24 hours.
  • Clean and flush equipment immediately after use to prevent the paint solidifying in guns, pots and lines.

Application Conditions

  • As dictated by normal good painting practice. In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.
