Application Details

  • Mixing: As the aluminium pigment settles very easily, must it be stirred well with a flat paddle to an even consistency before and during use.
  • Method: Roller, brush or spray.
  • Thinning: Not recommended but 10% maximum with ProGold Mineral Turpentine if required.
  • Cleaning: Remove as much of the product as possible from the application equipment before cleaning with ProGold Mineral Turpentine.

Conditions:

  • Temperature between 5°C and 40°C.
  • Relative humidity of less than 85%, preferably between 10: 00 and 16: 00.

Drying time: 
Surface dry - 12 hours, Hard dry - 48 hours.

Recoating time: 
48 hours at 23°C.

Note:  Higher temperatures will accelerate the drying times (approximately halved for every 10°C increase), whilst lower temperatures will retard the drying time (approximately doubled for every 10°C decrease).
