Application conditions All surfaces must be dry. The temperature of the ambient air, surface or paint should not fall below +5ºC during application or drying. Relative humidity should not exceed
80%. The surface temperature of the steel should remain at least 3ºC above the dew point.
Preparation 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)
Diluting Thinner 1048 or Thinner 1067. At conventional spray also Thinner 1061.
Priming Temadur 20, Temadur 50, Temadur 90, Temathane 50 and Temathane PC 80.
Overcoating Temadur Clear.
Lacquering By conventional or airless spray or by brush. Depending on the temperature of the components (base, hardener, thinner) the varnish should be thinned 15–30% to a viscosity of 14–18 s DIN4. Mixing of the components and adjustment of the viscosity should be done right before use in order to reach an optimal result.
In order to obtain an even, non-porous finish, use a "wet in wet" technique: first a misty coat or a thin coat, then let the solvents evaporate for 2–15 minutes before applying the final coat.
The product is best suited for application by conventional spray.
Airless spray nozzle tip 0.009"–0.011" and nozzle pressure 120–160 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.

When coating surfaces painted with Temadur the best result is obtained when the varnish is applied on a tacky, 10–30 minutes dried, surface.
At brush application the varnish should be thinned according to the circumstancies.

Temadur Clear can also be applied directly on clean dry metal surfaces. Then it is recommended to apply at least two coats.
Mixing of components First stir base and hardener separately. The correct proportions of base and hardener must be mixed thoroughly before use. Use mechanical mixer for mixing.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 1048, 1067 tai 1061.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 510 g/litre of paint.
VOC content in paint (thinned 30 % by volume) is 600 g/l.
