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 10C or above for application and during cure, and a
minimum of 3C above the dew point. Adequate dry air ventilation is recommended for
