DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
All drying times refer to shop temperature of 25°C (77°F) / 50% humidity. Allow additional drying time when optimal conditions are not reached.
SPRAY GUN AND PRESSURE:
Gun Type Fluid Tip Air Pressure
Siphon Feed 1.4-1.6mm 45-55 psi
Gravity Feed 1.2-1.6mm 40-45 psi
HVLP 1.2-1.6mm 10 psi
Apply 1 - 2 full wet coats of primer allowing 15 minutes flash between coats (1.0 mils DFT). Allow 30 to 60 minutes dry times before applying additional primers or topcoats. To achieve maximum film integrity, allow at least 3 hours dry time if film thickness exceeds 1.0 mils. Allow 12 hours drying time before applying body fillers.
IF USED AS A SEALER:
1. Apply 1 wet coat to achieve a dry film of 0.5 mils DFT.
2. Allow 20 - 30 minutes flash time before applying topcoat.
If Epoxy Primer / Sealer is allowed to dry more than 1 week, primer must be cleaned with PF 603, sanded with 500 grit paper before topcoating, or sealer must be scuff sanded and re-applied. Over some under-cured OEM substrates, a recoat lift may occur. The solution is to apply PF 661, PF 662 or PF 664 as a sealer after 1 hour and topcoat as normal.
