Withstands high traffic, abrasions, impacts and chemicals. May be applied to existing paint in sound condition without primer. Requires a minimum of two interlinking coats to prevent rust on metal. Acceptable for brush, roller-coat or spray applications.
Brush: recommend natural bristle brushes.
Roller: Recommend high quality dense foam roller covers.
Spray: Recommend small-medium size tip. Dry to the touch in 1 hour, recoatable in 12 hours - temperature dependant. Dries hard in 12-24 hours. Sand between coats after 48 hours.
Mixing ratio: N/A. Pot life: N/A. Covers 250-275 square feet per gallon. See label and application directions for further information.
Recommendations: Recommend applying two or more coats to achieve a minimum DFT of 4 mils. Dilute with water only as needed. Not recommended for fiberglass or large wooden structures. Apply multiple coats as needed to achieve desired film build. Subsequent coats may be applied within twelve hours. For best results wait 12-24 hours between coats. Recoat within 48 hours or (lightly sand between coats).
SURFACE PREPARATION: Recommend SM-695 Etching Cleaner on steel, fiberglass, aluminum, concrete and plastic. Previously painted surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and free of residues, oily film, and loose paint chips. Always wire brush, blast, sand or grind before priming or painting. Areas where all of the old coating has been removed must be spot primed before applying finish coat.
NEW SURFACES: Use only recommended primers: SM-7390 Formula 150 Epoxy Primer or SM-787 Mono Epoxy Primer or SM-664D Etching Primer.
Aluminum: Must be thoroughly cleaned with SM-695 Etching Cleaner, primed with SM-117 Pre-Wash Primer , use SM-664D Etching Primer as intermediate primer. Galvanized & Stainless Steel: Must be thoroughly cleaned, etched, primed with SM-117 Pre-Wash Primer in combination with SM-664D Primer or SM-787 Mono-Epoxy Primer.
Fiberglass: Bare fiberglass should be cleaned then sanded. Prime with SM-664D Etching Primer, or SM-7390 Formula 150 Epoxy Primer or SM-787 Mono Epoxy Primer.
Steel, iron & concrete: Clean thoroughly, sandblast, grind or wire brush. Recommend SM-695 Etching Cleaner. Where rust is evident use SM-5679 Rust Converting Cleaner. Then primer with SM-7390 Formula 150 Epoxy Primer or SM-787 Mono Epoxy Primer.
Wood: Finish sand wood with 180-220 grit. Recommend SM-664D Etching Primer or SM-787 Mono Epoxy Primer or SM-7390 Formula 150 Epoxy Primer. Apply multiple coats as desired. Apply two or more coats over sealed surface.
For Fine Finishing: Remove all surface scratches. Begin with 100 or 220 grit sandpaper and finish off with 300 or 400 wet/dry paper. Remove all surface contaminants with Denatured Alcohol on a clean, lint-free cloth. DO NOT USE TACK CLOTHS CONTAINING OILS, WAXES OR SILICONES. If Oil Stain is Used to Color the Wood: Make sure that the stain has dried a minimum of eight hours before applying successive finishes. Lightly sand or buff be-tween coats with a good 220 grit sandpaper.
THINNING: Thin if necessary with regular clean tap water.
CLEAN-UP: Tools and equipment may be cleaned with regular clean tap water.
Slip Resistance: For added slip resistance add 8 ounces SM-630 Pro-Tex, 1 lb Tred-Tex or Gaco-Grip.
