    SPREADING RATE (Coverage)
    Approximately 8 - 12 square metres per litre per coat when applied by brush or roller depending on the texture and porosity of the substrate.

    Spraying will considerably reduce the coverage rate depending on the type of spray equipment used. Airless spray systems for example coverage will be reduced to approximately 6-8sq meters/litre per coat. When using a tip size of 13-15 thou @ 50-70°angle and a pump pressure of 2500 P.S.I.
    Touch Dry:      2-4 hours at 18°C

    Overcoatable: 4 hours at 18°C

    Fully hardened after one month. Ensure good ventilation during application and drying.

    Brush, Roller, or Spray.

    Apply by brush, roller, conventional H.V.L.P or airless spray. Stir well and check colour before use. Do not apply at air or surface temperatures below 8°C or when likely to rain before the paint has fully dried.

    On ferrous surfaces some flash rusting may occur, especially if below the dew point. This is expected and will not affect the anti-corrosive properties of the product. In most cases only one coat is required but occasionally a second coat may be required to ensure maximum durability and build.

    Store away from heat and naked flames. Secure lid between uses to prevent paint hardening.
    Clean up with warm soapy water.

    Remove as much product as possible prior to cleaning.
    We recommend ordering all the paint required in one order so you receive the same batch, ordering on different dates will result in receiving different batches which may result in a shade difference.
    This is fine if you are planning on using the different batches on different coats, However, it's not recommended to use on the same coat.
