For best results wait a minimum of 4 hours before recoating. This product cures and bonds over a full 7 day period.

 

Cleanup

Clean tools and equipment while they are still wet with a warm soapy water solution. Any unused primer should be stored in air tight container for reuse.

Surface Prep

Ideal priming conditions include: dry surface, fresh air flow, 30-70% relative humidity, 55° to 85° F. Clean surfaces of dirt, grease, mildew and oil. Surface should be completely dry before application.

 

Application

  • Airless sprayers should use 17/1000 to 21/1000 tip 
  • Reversible tips are best
