Application

AEROSOL:

BEFORE SPRAYING

  1. Shake can vigorously for 1 minute to ensure colour uniformity. Shake can occasionally during use.
  2. Remove the cap carefully. Avoid using sharp objects that may puncture the can.
  3. Test spray on a small inconspicuous area to ensure surface compatibility and finish suitability.

SPRAYING

  1. Select the nozzle setting: The horizontal setting should be used when spraying up and down and the vertical setting should be used when spraying across. To change the nozzle setting, turn the red section on the nozzle.
  2. Hold the can upright approximately 25cm from the surface.
  3. Press button firmly and spray several light coats with a smooth sweeping motion, overlapping each spray pass. To prevent paint from sagging, avoid spraying too close to the surface or applying a heavy coat.
  4. Repeat if necessary.

BRUSH ON:

  1. Stir thoroughly with a broad flat stirrer in a circular lifting motion for at least 5 minutes before use and continue to stir at regular intervals during application.
  2. Apply 2 coats by brush.

Do not use when air or surface temperature is below 15°C or above 30°C or in excessive humidity.

Coverage

AEROSOL: Approximately 1.5m² per can, depending on the nature of the surface and amount of overspray.

BRUSH ON: Approximately 16m² per litre, depending on the nature of the surface.

Drying

AEROSOL: Touch dry in 1 hour. Re-coat after 16 hours.

BRUSH ON:  Touch dry in 1 hour. Re-coat after 16 hours.

Drying will be slower in cold or humid conditions, in the absence of ventilation or where heavy film builds are applied. 

Full Cure

Hard dry conditions are achieved when the coated article is gradually heated from cold to operating temperature.

Some odour may be evident during curing. It is suggested practice to re-coat the article after the winter period. This will allow the full curing to take place prior to the next winter without any heat application.

Clean Up

AEROSOL: Overspray can be removed while still wet with mineral turps.

To clean the nozzle after use and prevent blocking turn the can upside down and press button until only gas escapes.

BRUSH ON: Clean brushes and equipment with Rust Guard Solvent or mineral turps.

Hints and Tips
  • Increase heat slowly the first time you use the object you have painted to prevent blistering.
  • Paint will not adhere to glossy or dirty surfaces.
  • It is better to spray a few light coats than one heavy coat.
  • Practice makes perfect. Do a test piece first on cardboard to get the feeling.
  • Use masking tape or newspaper to prevent paint from going on areas you don't want it to.
  • Have lots of rags handy for any cleaning.
