Hardener 1 part by volume 007 1019
|Application method||By airless spray or brush.|
|Pot-life (+23°C)||1½ h.|
Drying and recoating times are related to the film thickness, temperature, the relative humidity of the air and ventilation.
|Solids volume||47 ± 2 volume % (ISO 3233)
61 ± 2 weight %
|Density||1,4 kg/l käyttövalmis seos.|
|Application conditions||All surfaces must be dry. The temperature of the ambient air, surface or paint should not fall below +15 ºC during application and drying. Relative humidity should not exceed 70 %. The surface temperature of the steel should remain at least 3 ºC 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)|

|Finishing||Fontecoat EP 80.|
|Painting||By airless spray or brush. If necessary, the paint can 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.|
|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||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 is 70 g/litre of paint.
VOC content of paint mixture (thinned by 10% by volume) 65 g/l.
