Step by step

SURFACE PREPARATION

The surface should be thoroughly de-greased and must be cleaned of all loosely adhering particles, laitance, dust, oil, grease, paint, etc. The surface must be rust free. Also, remove salt and other contaminants by high pressure fresh water cleaning. sharp edges or rough weld seams should be ground down. Dust off all the residues and allow the surface to dry. old coated surface should be roughened with sand paper and dust should be removed before recoating.

PRIMING 

Priming is not required.

BRUSH/ AIRLESS SPRAY APPLICATION

The coating is supplied ready for application. In case of cold weather conditions, add a small amount of the specified solvent to obtain the suitable viscosity. The amount of thinner that may be added depends on the application methods and conditions. Prior to application stir and mix the paint thoroughly by a mixer to obtain a homogeneous product. After mixing, the material should be applied immediately by airless spray or brush. In case recoating is needed, clean the surface thoroughly by high pressure fresh water hosing and allow it to dry. no particular recoating interval is required. The recoating should be done when the surface is dry.

The surface temperature must be at least 3ºC above the dew point to prevent condensation. The paint should never be applied under adverse weather conditions. In confined spaces, constant purging of the air during application and drying is necessary to eliminate solvent vapours for reasons of health and safety as well as to assist evaporation.
