Environmental Advantages
  BLUE RIVER COATINGS WOOD PRIMER is a low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound), high performance production coating. It is considered non-hazardous by EPA definitions and does not contain lead or chromates. The solid and semi-solid sludge produced in spraying and clean up can be flocculated; dried and sent to a “Class B” landfill. Check with local and state regulations for proper handling.

Mixing Directions
  1. Mix Part A (color) well prior to mixing with Part B (catalyst).
  2. Mix together 3 parts A (color) with 1 part B (catalyst) by volume. This mixture will be thick and creamy.
  3. Allow the mixture to “sweat-in” for 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in approximately ½ to 1 part deionized water until the viscosity is 18-25 seconds with a Zahn #2 viscosity cup.
  5. Normal pot life is 30-45 minutes. In areas of high temperature and humidity, the pot life will be less.
  1. Spraying: reduce with distilled water to 20-25 seconds Zahn #2. Apply with standard equipment – pressure or suction feed, HVLP or electrostatic. Atomization breakup depends upon viscosity of primer. Best performance is with an agitation pot.
  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. Must be top coated within 60 days of application.
Clean-Up With Water

Use water for cleanup. If the primer dries in the spray equipment, solvents may have to be used for cleanup. If the internal parts of the spray equipment are not stainless steel, it is recommended that the gun be disassembled and allowed to air dry.
