Optimised rheology ensures very good application properties with airless spray, brush and roller.

Hi It says airless spray on hardtop xp? Can it not be sprayed using a normal air compressor ? Along with jotamastic 90 as a primer? Cheers
Airless spray is preferred for Jotun Hardtop XP but air spray equipment can be used (see Application Guide for details - this can be downloaded from the 'Download' section on the product page). Jotun Jotamastic 90 can only be applied by airless spray.

Question: Can you please provide a recommended maintenance cycle for the Hardtop XP two pac topcoat applied to Jotun Intumescent paint system in an external environment ?
There are several corrosive categories (ISO 12944-5, see table below) we have to consider when offering such advice. In different environments the coatings will have different durability. Applying two coats of Jotun Hardtop XP instead of one would also increase the life expectancy.
We normally suggest that the coating system should be inspected after 5 years and any remedial damage repaired. Equally if damaged in service we would strongly recommend urgent repairs. An undamaged coating system can last for up to 15 years assuming regular maintenance.
