All surfaces should be clean, dry and free from contamination. The surface should be assessed and treated in accordance with ISO 8504.
Cleanliness: Blast cleaning to min. Sa 2 ½ (ISO 8501 1:2007). Roughness: using abrasives suitable to achieve Grade Medium G (50 - 85 µm, Ry5) (ISO 8503-2).
The coating may be used on other substrates. Please contact your local Jotun office for more information.
Condition during application
The temperature of the substrate should be minimum 10°C and at least 3°C above the dew point of the air, temperature and relative humidity measured in the vicinity of the substrate. Good ventilation is required in confined areas to ensure proper drying. The coating should not be exposed to oil, chemicals or mechanical stress until cured.
Use airless spray
Recommended for stripe coating and small areas, care must be taken to achieve the specified dry film thickness.

Check to ensure that filters are clean.
Drying times are generally related to air circulation, temperature, film thickness and number of coats, and will be affected correspondingly. The figures given in the table are typical with:
* Good ventilation (Outdoor exposure or free circulation of air)
* Typical film thickness
* One coat on top of inert substrate
Dry to recoat, minimum
Dry to recoat, maximum
The surface should be free from chalking and contamination prior to application. If the maximum dry to recoat time is exceeded, please contact Jotun for advice.
In order to achieve full product resistance, a combined total of 14 days curing at minimum 15ºC is required during build period.
The given data must be considered as guidelines only. The actual drying time/times before recoating may be shorter or longer, depending on film thickness, ventilation, humidity, underlying paint system, requirement for early handling and mechanical strength etc. A complete system can be described on a system sheet, where all parameters and special conditions could be included.

can be used as a temporary protection before the full system is applied.
Other systems may be specified, depending on area of use
The product must be stored in accordance with national regulations. Storage conditions are to keep the containers in a dry, cool, well ventilated space and away from source of heat and ignition. Containers must be kept tightly closed.
