Theoretical spreading rate at recommended dry film build Assumes no losses. Two coats are recommended each with a spreading rate of 16m² per litre at recommended 20 micrometres dry film build corresponding to an overall rate of 8m² per litre at 44 micrometres dry film build. Practical spreading rates will vary depending on such factors as application conditions & surface roughness.
Theoretical volume solids 38%
Drying time: Touch dry in 20 minutes. Recoat after two hours at 25⁰C & 50⁰C relative humidity. Under colder or more humid conditions longer time may be necessary.
Surface preparation: Surfaces to be painted should be clean & in sound condition to accept the finish. Remove grease, oil etc with mineral turpentine or white spirits. Efflorescence or mould on masonry or concrete surfaces must be healed. Timber surfaces require no priming. Other surfaces must be prepared and or primed in accordance with the requirements of the chosen system.
Application: Apply full, even coats to the prepared surface.
Brush or roller Apply directly from the container. If necessary, reduce up to 100ml water per litre with water to ease application. Dry, porous surfaces & rough sawn timber may be dampened down prior to application.
Conventional spray : Up to 100ml per litre of water to aid atomisation. Apply wet, even coats.
Airless spray : Reduce up to 100ml per litre of water to aid atomisation. Use tip orifice of 375-425 micrometres (15-17 thou) at 13.8 Mpa (2000 psi)
Equipment clean up : Water
