Product Data


RECOMMENDED SUBSTRATE CONDITIONS AND TEMPERATURES

Substrate Conditions

  • Steel with approved zinc silicate shop primer; sweep blasted to SPSS-Ss, welds, rusty and damaged areas blast cleaned to ISO-Sa2½
  • Steel; blast cleaned to ISO-Sa2½, blasting profile 40 – 70 µm (1.6 – 2.8 mils)
  • Primed steel or previous coat must be dry and free from any contamination
  • Galvanized steel must be dry, free from any contamination and zinc salts
  • Substrate temperature during application should be at least 3°C (5°F) above dew point

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

Stir well before use. The temperature of the paint should preferably be above 15°C (59°F), otherwise extra thinner may be required to obtain application viscosity. Adding too much thinner results in reduced sag resistance
