Humidity less than 90% RH.
Epidac 2 HB Aluminium primer can be applied direct to damp/wet surfaces. Brush application is the preferred application method to ensure displacement of water from the substrate.
Application : Apply by brush, roller, airless/air-assisted airless or conventional spray.
Airless spray : Tip pressure 2500psi (170 bar). Tip size 13-15 Thou (0.33-0.38mm).
Apply to wet film thickness of approximately 175 microns to achieve a dry film thickness of 125 microns, or approximately 100 microns to achieve a dry film thickness of 75 microns.
Conventional spray : May require up to 15% addition of Dacrylate Thinner R5 to achieve optimum application characteristics.
Pot Life (at 20°C) : 4 hours
Mixing ratio by volume : 4 : 1
Clean-up : Dacrylate Thinner R5.
