Application conditions All surfaces must be dry. The temperature of the ambient air, surface and paint should not fall below + 5ºC during application and drying. Relative humidity should not exceed 80%. The temperature of the substrate 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)
Priming Temaprime EE, Temaprime EUR, Temaprime GF, Temaprime ML and Fontecryl 10.
Finishing Temalac ML 90.
Painting By airless spray or by brush. Mix the paint thoroughly before use. At airless spray the paint should be thinned 0 - 10%. Airless spray nozzle tip 0.011" - 0.015" and nozzle pressure 140 - 180 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object. The best finish is obtained using a "wet-on-wet" technique, with 5 - 30 minutes evaporating pauses.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 1006 or Thinner 1050.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 460 g/litre of paint.
VOC content of the paint (thinned 10 % by volume) is 500 g/l.
