Conditions:

Drying time: 
Surface dry - 15 minutes, Hard dry - 4-6 hours, Through dry - 48 hours at 23°C with a relative humidity of 85% or less.

Enamel paint:

  • Strip off and treat as new work.

Machinery Enamel:

  • Abrade well to matt finish and recoat.

Limitations

  • Wrinkling can occur if recoating times are not adhered to.
  • 14 Days curing time is required for touch-ups if the 6 hour maximum recoatable time has elapsed.
  • Prominent Machinery Enamel Clear Coat cannot be used for tinting.

  • Prominent Machinery Enamel Matt Black cannot be overcoated with Prominent Machinery Enamel Clear Coat.
  • Prominent Machinery Enamel clear tint base can only be tinted with Prominent Pro-Matic tinting system.
  • Spray applications with Prominent Machinery Enamel Silver may give off more silver residue compared to a brush application in direct contact situations. For a residue-free finish overcoat with 1-2 coats of Prominent Machinery Enamel Clear Coat.
