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.
Clean, dry and undamaged approved shopprimer
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.
