Instructions for Use

Mixing Instructions

N/A Thoroughly stir or shake the base component (Part A) before combining to ensure all solids are completely dispersed. Add one volume of catalyst component (Part B) to the three parts of base component (Part A). Do not use the catalyst component (Part B) from another color. Mix by hand stirring, paint shaker or mechanical mixing to ensure the base/catalyst mixture is homogeneous. Do not shake or mechanically mix material for longer than 10 minutes. Thinners are not required for the mixed material. If the addition of a thinner is necessary, MIL-T-81772B Type II* (IS-237) is available. Do not add thinner to attempt to compensate for coatings beyond its useful pot life.

Note: Use only if needed and if local and state VOC limits allow.

Note: It is important to condition the paint for 24 hours prior to mixing by placing all materials in the shop or hangar, with ambient temperatures between 13 ºC and 35 ºC (55 ºF to 95 ºF). The minimum temperature of the paint components should be 13 ºC (55 ºF) prior to mixing.

Applications

N/A Coating may be applied over properly cleaned composite surfaces, and epoxy primer coatings. Apply the topcoat by spray, using two coats to a total dry film thickness of 1.7 to 2.3 mils. Apply the first coat as a light (mist) coat. Allow the coat to set for at least 15 minutes (depending on airflow, temperature and humidity) before applying the second coat to permit solvent evaporation. Apply the second coat in a full wet coat to achieve the desired film thickness.

These application guidelines represent PPG's best advice in standard conditions. Some parameters will be influenced by environmental conditions, equipment settings, and other variables.
