All surfaces should be cleaned and free of dirt, salt, oil, grease, chemical deposits, and other surface contaminants by washing with a commercial detergent or suitable cleaner. High gloss surfaces should be scuff sanded to insure good adhesion. Surface should be dry when painted.
If reduction is necessary, reduce only with hot water. A light mist coat may be applied immediately followed by a heavier second coat. In many cases a heavier first coat, evenly applied, will provide adequate hiding and coverage. A medium 3/8" soft woven covers is recommended for rolling and .013 to .015 tip is recommended for airless spray application. Ambient air, paint and substrate temperature should be at least 50F at the time of application.
When evenly applied at the recommended dry film thickness of 1-1.25 Mil, Sheboygan Paint Company Water-Reducible Protective Primer should be dry to touch in 45-60 minutes and dry to handle in 4-6 hours at 77 F and 50% Relative Humidity. High film thickness, low air movement, and/or high humidity will increase the dry times.
Store above freezing (32F). Do not freeze. Mild agitation is recommended before use.
Water clean-up for spray guns and equipment. Butyl Cellosolve may also be used.
