Stir thoroughly before and during use. Apply the two coats in full even coats by brush, roller or spray. Apply as received in the container. Apply when air and surface temperatures are a least 40 degree Fahrenheit and rising or when air and surface temperatures are no greater than 90 degrees Fahrenheit . Prior to painting, ensure that you have enough paint boxed or mixed in one container to complete an entire section. This practice is important with standard as well as custom blended colors.
Dry-Time: Dries to the touch in 2 to 4 hours and can be recoated if necessary after 4 hours under good drying conditions.
Coverage: 300-500 square foot per gallon, depending on the surface of the metal and texture. Be sure to estimate the right amount for your job. This will ensure color uniformity and minimize the disposal of excess paint.
General Instructions: Surfaces must be clean and free of mildew and forming oils. New galvanize needs to weather for at least 6 months before being painted. Surface should be cleaned as well as possible to remove chalk dust from the metal panel. We recommend that you powerwash all metal surfaces to remove chalk, rust, mildew and blistering paint. Clean all metal surfaces with Tri-Sodium Phosphate. A bristle brush may be used to remove stubborn dirt and stains. Caution: Use rubber gloves, work goggles, and protective clothing when applying the wash mixture. Spot prime all exposed metal with Calbar 10-520 red oxide primer. Unweathered areas such as eaves, ceilings, and overhangs should be washed with Tri-Sodium Phosphate to remove surface salts that can interfere with proper adhesion.
Tinting/Thinning: Not recommended,
Stirring: Stir the paint thoroughly, before using, and frequently during application.
Packaging: Available in 5 gallons (18.927 liters) containers.
Cautions: Paint only when weather conditions are warm and dry. Do not apply when surface temperatures are such that you cannot hold your hand on the surface to be painted. Do not paint if rain is forecast within the tack-free time. Starting after 10 am and stopping by 4 pm gives best results. Condensation on wet paint film will flatten the finish of the coating prematurely and unevenly, but does not affect adhesion or durability. Never paint over condensation. Painting at temperatures above 90ºF may cause coatings to dry too quickly, which can delay thorough drying and cause bubbling and wrinkling. Refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet for complete health and environmental information.
Flashing (flattening) will occur if dew settles on the metal while the coating is wet. This will not affect the protective qualities of the coating.
Do not apply when ambient or surface temperatures are below 40ºF or above 90º.
Do not apply when there is a threat of rain.
