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.
