APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions All surfaces must be dry. The temperature of the ambient air, surface or paint should not fall below +15ºC during application and drying. Relative humidity should not exceed 80%. The surface temperature of the steel should remain at least 3ºC above the dew point.
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.

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)
Priming Fontecoat SC 80.
Painting By airless or conventional spray. Depending on the application method the paint can be thinned 0-10%. Airless spray nozzle tip 0.011"–0.019"; spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.
Small areas can be painted by brush.
Mixing of components First stir base and hardener separately. The correct proportions of base and hardener must be mixed thoroughly before use. Use a mechanical agitator for mixing.
Cleaning of tools Clean the spraying equipment immediately after use as follows:
1. Run the equipment with water to remove excess paint from the equipment.
2. Run the equipment with a mixture of approx 20% Thinner 1109 in clean water, at least two times.
3. Finally wash with undiluted Thinner 1109.

Wash the equipment with water before starting to paint again. Unwashed equipment can cause serious surface defects.
Contact Tikkurila Technical Service for detailed instructions for cleaning 2-component application equipment.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount to 55±5 g/litre of paint. VOC content of paint mixture (thinned by 10% by volume) 50g/l.
Only for professional use.
