Surface Preparation: Remove all dirt, grease, oil, salt and chemical contaminants by washing the surface with a commercial detergent, or other suitable cleaning method. Rinse with fresh water and allow to thoroughly dry. Remove loose paint and rust with a wire brush or sandpaper. Previously coated surfaces must be sound and in good condition. Smooth, hard, or glossy finishes should be scarified by sanding to create a surface profile.
Application: Before using, stir thoroughly to ensure any settled pigment is re-dispersed. If necessary, thin the material with acetone. For brush or roller, thinning is not normally required. For air spray, thin up to 15% with acetone. Do not thin with gasoline, lacquer thinner, turpentine, etc. For airless spray, thinning is not normally required. Apply with a good quality brush, roller or spray gun.Brush: Use light, even strokes. Excessive brushing reduces film thickness and protection.
Roller: Usa a 3/8 inch nap roller for rough surfaces. Cover approximately one square yard at a time. Roll away from previously coated area nd work back to it for a uniform appearance. Usa a brush on crevices and sharp edges.
Spray Gun: Follow spray gun direction carefully. Always keep the gun 10-12 inches away from the surface and in motion while spraying.
Recoat: Dry and recoat times are based on 70°F and 50% relative humidity. Allow more time at cooler temperatures. Dries to touch in 2-4 hours, to handle in 5-9 hours and is fully dry in 24 hours. Recoat after 24 hours. Do not apply Clear Enamel over Stops Rust Bright Coat FInish or Aluminum Finish.
Clean-Up: Wipe off tip before storing. Clean-up wet paint with xylene or mineral spirits. Properly discard empty container. Do not burn or place in home trash compactor.
