Preparation:Surface must be clean, dry and free from dirt, grease and other contamination.Previous paint should be removed, or if this is not feasible, the product should be tested on a small area first to ensure compatibility with the existing coating. Scale or rust should be removed as far as possible. No loose or flaking rust should remain. Exposed metal surfaces should ideally be prepared to minimum Sa2 standard and primed within 2 hours.

Mixing:Having fully prepared the substrate, stir the individual components before mixing together. Add part ‘B’ to part ‘A’ and thoroughly mix for at least 3 minutes. For best results use a heavy duty slow speed drill with a mixing paddle. Ensure thorough mixing as an unmixed product will result in a poor or non-cure situation. Keep all components at room temperature for 24 hours before use.

Apply by brush, roller or airless spray, making sure that the surface is completely covered. Particular attention should be given to protrusions and other areas of high potential wear. When finished, DO NOT scrape the remaining contents from the container as this will invariably include unmixed raw resin.
