– Steel and non ferrous metals properly prepared and blast cleaned to ISO-Sa2½
-Concrete free of contamination, dust and efflorescence, and properly prepared
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
Clean, dry and undamaged compatible primer .
For aluminum substrates, thorough washing and sweeping with a nonmetallic blast medium is required.
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.
Thinning should only take place after the two components have been thoroughly mixed.
Brush and Roller
Thin if required with 0-5% Paint Thinner Colorama TH907EP.
Conventional Air Spraying
– Thin with 5-25% Paint Thinner Colorama TH907EP, as required.
-Tip size – 2.0 mm
-Tip pressure – 60 psi (0.4Mpa) approximately
-Thin with 0-20% Paint Thinner Colorama TH907EP, as required
-Tip size – 0.58-.79 mm approximately
-Tip pressure – 2100 psi (15Mpa) approximately
Equipment should be cleaned immediately after use with Paint Thinner Colorama TH907EP.
Drying times are affected by air ventilation, temperature, film thickness and number of coats.
