Application conditions All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from contamination. The temperature of the ambient air, surface and paint should not fall below +5ºC during application and drying. Relative humidity of the air should not exceed 80% during application and drying. The surface temperature of steel should remain at least 3°C above the dew point. Good ventilation and sufficient air movement is required in confined areas during application and drying.
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 FD 80.
Painting Stir the product carefully before use.

For airless spraying, the product is thinned approximately 15–20% to the viscosity
30–40s (DIN4). Recommended nozzle tip is 0.011"–0.015" and pressure 120–180 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.

For conventional spraying, the product is thinned approximately 20–30% to the viscosity 20–25s (DIN4). Recommended nozzle tip is 1.4–1.8 mm and pressure 3–4 bar.

"Wet-on-wet" spraying technique is recommended.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 1006.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 480 g/litre of paint.
Maximum VOC content in ready to use paint (thinned 30% by volume) is 570 g/l.
