    Risks of chemical spills or graffitis:

    The system can be top coated by one or two coats of RD-Hydrograff HP Clear High Gloss if not already used in the system.

    Indicated consumption is theoretical and does not consider potential losses during application. It can also be influenced by the porosity of the substrate.

    Application instructions

    APPLICATION CONDITIONS:

    Ambient temperature: minimum 5° C (41°F) – Optimal between 12° and 25°C (54° and 77°F).
    Relative humidity: maximum 80 %
    Surface temperature must be minimum 3°C (5°F) above dew point.

    APPLICATION MEANS:

    Brush, roller or airless (nozzle size: 010–012)
    Application by airless is recommended and makes it easier to reach the recommended thicknesses. Use a device that allows a minimum pressure of 70-150 bar / 1000 - 2000 psi at the outlet.

    PREPARATION OF THE SUBSTRATE:

    The substrate must be clean: dry, degreased and dust free. Non adhering elements such as older coatings or rust must be removed. Different type of surface preparation are possible:

    1/ Remove rust manually or by power tool to ST2 – ISO 8501-1/SSPC SP2 or SP3.
    2/ Blasting to SA 2½ - ISO 8501-1/NACE3/SSPC SP6.
    3/ High pressure washing following SSPC SP12 WJ4.

    Aluminum: clean with sulfuric acid diluted to 10%.

    On new galvanized steel: preferably clean with RD-Eco PowerClean detergent diluted with water or use a conventional detergent.

    Stainless steel: preferably clean with RD-Eco PowerClean detergent diluted with water or use a conventional detergent.

    Copper: clean with hydrochloric acid diluted to 10% and rinse with water.

    DILUTION:

    Product is ready-for-use. Dilute with maximum 3% water when applying by airless or in warm weather conditions (> 25°C / > 77°F).

    DRYING TIME (20°C - 68°F):

    Touch dry: +/- 1 hour depending on thickness
    Recoatable: +/- 2 hours depending on film thickness

    Possible to apply wet on wet in special conditions.

    CLEANING OF TOOLS:

    Water

    SPECIFICITIES:

    Mix well before use.
