Application conditions All surfaces must be dry. The temperature of the ambient air, surface or paint should not fall below + 10 ºC during application. Relative humidity should not exceed 80 %. The surface temperature of steel should remain at least 3 ºC 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.

Zinc silicate 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 Temasil 90.
Finishing Temal.
Painting By airless spray (airmix system is recommended) or conventional spray or by brush. Mix the paint thoroughly before use. Depending on the application method the paint can be thinned 0 - 10 %. Airless spray nozzle tip 0.011" - 0.013" and nozzle pressure 120 - 160 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 1031.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 700 g/litre of paint.
VOC of the paint (thinned 10 % by volume) is 715 g/l.
For industrial and professional use only.
