APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from contamination. The temperature of the ambient air and surface should not fall below +5ºC during application and drying. Relative humidity of the air should not exceed 80% during application and drying. The surface temperature of steel should remain at least 3°C above the dew point.

For proper application the temperature of the paint itself should be above +15°C during mixing and application. Good ventilation and sufficient air movement is required in confined areas during application and drying.

Note! There is a natural tendency of this coating to chalk, discolor or yellow unevenly. It is recommended to use polyurethane topcoat when there are high aesthetical requirements on color appearance.
Preparation Oil, grease, salts and dirt are removed by appropriate means. (ISO 12944-4)

Steel surfaces: Blast clean to grade Sa2½. (ISO 8501-1) If blast cleaning is not possible, phosphating is recommended for cold rolled steel to improve adhesion.

Zinc surfaces: Sweep blast clean with mineral abrasives, e.g. quartz sand, to an even roughness. (SaS, SFS 5873) If sweep blasting is not possible, the surface should be roughened by hand abrading or washed with PANSSARIPESU detergent.
Hot dip galvanized surfaces are recommended to be painted with a mist coat (paint thinned 25 - 30 %) before the actual priming.

Aluminium surfaces: Sweep blast clean with none-metallic abrasives to an even roughness. (SaS, SFS 5873) If sweep blasting is not possible, the surface should be roughened by hand abrading or washed with MAALIPESU detergent.

Primed surfaces: Oil, grease, salt and dirt are removed from the surface by appropriate means. Repair any damage to the primer coat. Note the overcoating time of primer. (ISO 12944-4)

Concrete surfaces: The surface must dry and at least 4 weeks old. The relative humidity of the concrete should not exceed 97%. Remove any splashes and unevennesses by grinding. Remove laitance and form oil from concrete castings by sanding or blast cleaning. Any cracks, crevices and voids must be repaired with a mixture of Temafloor 200 and fine dry quartz sand.

Application: 2–3 x Temacoat RM 40
Priming Temacoat RM 40, Temacoat GPL-S Primer, Temacoat GPL-S MIO, Temacoat SPA, Temabond, Temasil 90, Temazinc 77 and Temazinc 99.
Finishing Temacoat RM 40, Temadur and Temathane.
Painting For airless spraying, the product is thinned approximately 0–20%. Recommended nozzle tip is 0.015"–0.021" and pressure 120–180 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.

For brush application (small areas) the product should be thinned according to the circumstancies.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 006 1031.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 330 g/litre of paint mixture.
VOC content of the paint mixture (thinned 20 % by) volume is 430 g/l.

Only for industrial and professional use.
