Suitable Surfaces :
- Steel and non-ferrous metals properly blast cleaned to SIS-Sa 21/2 minimum.
- Substrates must be free of contamination, dust, and efflorescence.
- Previously gloss painted surfaces should be thoroughly abraded or sand
blasted before application.
Bare Steel :
Cleanliness: Blast – cleaning to Sa2 1/2 (ISO-8501-1:2007). Power tool cleaning to min. St2 (ISO 8501-1:2007) may be acceptable, subject to exposure conditions.
Shop primed Steel :
Clean, dry and undamaged approved shop primer.
Coated Surfaces :
Clean, dry and undamaged compatible primer. For aluminum substrates, thorough washing and sweeping with a nonmetallic blast medium is required.
Application Conditions :
Substrate temperature should be 10°C or above for application and during cure, and a minimum of 3°C above the dew point. Adequate dry air ventilation is recommended for optimum drying.
Application Information :
Thinning should only take place after the material has been thoroughly mixed.
Brush and Roller :
Thin if required with 0-5% COLORAMA Thinner 906 or 921.
