METALS: Surface must be free of grease, oil, dirt, and other foreign matter. Oxidation material must be removed or converted with Blue River Coatings Conversion Coating. Priming with Blue River Coatings Primer Sealer or Hydro-Poxy Primer is recommended. For compatibility with other primers, contact Blue River Coatings.

PLASTICS: Good adhesion on most plastics.

WOOD: Surface must be dry, sanded and dust free. Oil stains may not be used. For
information on approved water base stains and sanding sealers, contact Blue River Coatings.

  1. Spraying:  reduce with distilled water to 20-25 seconds Zahn #2.
  2. Brushing or rolling:  reduce with distilled water to 30-38 seconds Zahn #2.
  3. Stir contents before use:  Never shake or stir under high agitation.
  4. Shelf life:  1 year.
  5. Apply with standard equipment - pressure or suction feed, air assisted airless, HVLP, LVLP or electrostatic.  Atomization pressure depends on viscosity.
Clean-Up With Water
  If the paint dries, solvents may have to be used for clean up. If the spray equipment is not
stainless steel, the equipment may have to be taken apart and air-dried.
  Excellent salt spray resistance and UV resistance when compared to acrylic solvent based
