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)
Priming Temacoat GPL-S Primer, Temacoat GPL-S MIO, Temacoat RM 40, Temacoat SPA, Temabond and Temadur 20.
Finishing Temathane and Temadur.
Painting By airless or conventional spray or by brush. In order to obtain an even, non-porous finish, spray a misty coat: first a thin layer, then let the solvents evaporate for
5–30 minutes and then apply the full coat. Depending on the application method and the temperature of the components (base, hardener, thinner) the paint can be thinned 10–15 %. The viscosity should be 30–60 s DIN4. Airless spray nozzle tip 0.011"–0.015" and nozzle pressure 120–160 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.

At conventional spraying the viscosity should be 20–25 s DIN4.

At brush application the paint should be thinned according to the circumstancies.
Mixing of components First stir base and hardener separately. The correct proportions of base and hardener must be mixed thoroughly before use. Use Temaspeed Squirrel Mixer for mixing.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 1048, 1067 or 1061.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 425 g/litre of paint mixture.
VOC content of the paint mixture (thinned 15% by volume) is 490 g/l.
