Condition during application
The temperature of the substrate should be minimum 3ºC above the dew point of the air,
temperature and relative humidity measured in the vicinity of the substrate. Good ventilation is
usually required in confined areas to ensure correct drying.
Spray Use airless spray or conventional spray
Brush Recommended for stripe coating and small areas, care must be taken to achieve the
specified dry film thickness.
Roller May be used. However when using roller application care must be taken to apply
sufficient material in order to achieve the specified dry film thickness.
Mixing ratio (volume) Single pack.
Thinner/Cleaner Jotun Thinner No. 2
Guiding data airless spray
Pressure at nozzle 15 MPa (150 kp/cm², 2100 psi)
Nozzle tip 0.38 - 0.53 mm (0.015 - 0.021")

Filter Check to ensure that filters are clean.
Drying times are generally related to air circulation, temperature, film thickness and number of coats,
and will be affected correspondingly. The figures given in the table are typical with:
* Good ventilation (Outdoor exposure or free circulation of air)
* Typical film thickness
* One coat on top of inert substrate

The given data must be considered as guidelines only. The actual drying time/times before recoating
may be shorter or longer, depending on film thickness, ventilation, humidity, underlying paint system,
requirement for early handling and mechanical strength etc. A complete system can be described on
a system sheet, where all parameters and special conditions could be included.
