Application

AEROSOL:

  1. Shake can vigorously for 2 minutes before use and regularly during use.
  2. Adjust nozzle to desired spray pattern. Use the horizontal setting when spraying up and down and the vertical setting when spraying across.
  3. Hold the can upright approximately 15-20 cm from the surface.
  4. Press button firmly and spray with a smooth sweeping motion. Apply a pre-wetting mist coat followed by a full even coat, overlapping each spray pass. To prevent paint sagging, avoid spraying too close to the surface or spraying too heavily.
  5. Repeat if necessary.


Do not use when air or surface temperature is below 15°C or above 30°C

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. No thinning is required for application by brush or roller. If spraying you may thin up to 10% with White Knight Rust Guard Solvent.
  3. Apply 2 coats by brush, roller or spray gun. For best results lightly sand between coats.


Do not use when air or surface temperature is below 10°C or above 30°C

Coverage

AEROSOL: Approximately 2m² per can.

BRUSH ON: Approximately 14m² per litre, depending on the nature of the surface.

Drying

AEROSOL:  Touch dry in 6-8 hours. Re-coat after 16 hours.

BRUSH ON: Touch dry in 4-6 hours. 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.

Hints and Tips
  • Use a drop sheet to cover objects from overspray. Overspray can travel long distances so make sure you cover a wide area.
  • 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.
