Surface Preparation: Surface must be clean, dry and free of all contamination. High pressure fresh water wash to remove all soluble contaminants and foreign matter. Clean any oil or grease in accordance with SSPC-SP1 Solvent Cleaning. Newbuilds: Blast all shop primers to SSPC-SP10 Near White Blast (Sa2½). Remove weld spatter. Grind weld seams. Round all sharp edges. Blast all damaged areas and weld seams to SSPC-SP10 Near White Blast (Sa2½). Major refurbishment: Near White Metal Blast SSPC-SP10 Near White Blast (Sa2½) is recommended. Commercial Blast SSPC-SP6 (Sa2) is acceptable in many areas, consult Blue Water for recommendations. If oxidation has occurs between blasting and painting, reblasting is required. Maintenance and Repair: High pressure water wash using 3000 psi minimum to remove all contamination. Commercial Blast SSPC-SP6 (Sa2) bare steel or damaged areas. Repair any defect revealed after the blast. If oxidation has occurs between blasting and painting, reblasting is required.
Application Data: Application: Apply 7.1 mils wet to yield 5 mils dry film thickness. Mixing: Two part product must be mixed before application. Power mix each part before mixing together. Always mix full containers to insure proper mix ratio. Strain ma- terial with a 60 mesh screen. Use within potlife. Thinning: Paint is supplied at spray viscosity. If thinning is necessary, add 5% of thinner by volume. Use THINNER 973 for external applications and THINNER 976 for in- ternal applications
Airless Spray: Airless spray is recommended. • Pump size is 30:1 or greater • Tip size is 19 - 27 thou. • Output fluid pressure at spray tip 3000 psi • Hose size is 3/8" ID • Filter is 60 mesh • Use water separator in line • Conventional Spray: Conventional spray is not recommended.
Brush: Brush use is recommended for small areas only. Multiple coats may be required to achieve specified film thickness.
Roller: Roller use is recommended for small areas only. Multiple coats may be required to achieve specified film thickness. Use 3/8" medium nap roller cover.
Cleaner: THINNER 973 Cleanup: Flush all equipment with THINNER 973. Filter material prior to use. Flush spray equipment during heavy use. Do not exceed potlife of paint. Dispose of paint cans in accordance with local regulations. Do not re-seal containers of mixed paint. Close lid thoroughly for storage.
