Ensure all surfaces are clean, dry and free from grease, oil and any other contaminates. Bare steel should be free from dust, rust and scale. Blast cleaning to SA 2½ is recommended. If blast cleaning is impractical, mechanical cleaning should be employed but hand cleaning does not clean the steel to the required degree. Any oil or grease should be removed with solvent before de-rusting. Where blast cleaning is carried out after assembly, special attention must be paid to edges, corners, nuts, bolts welds, etc. Welds should, if necessary be ground and all weld spatter, slag etc. must be removed.
As dictated by normal good painting practice. In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.
Direct to prepared metal or Rapidry Zinc Phosphate Primer.
Hammercote Smooth Finish
Apply a minimum of 2 coats. By Brush: apply a thin coat briskly direct to the surface. Leave to dry for 15-30 minutes before re-coating with a full coat. By Spray: thin carefully to required consistency (if in doubt consult Coo-Var Technical Services). Apply a mist coat followed by a full coat after 2-4 minutes. When applying additional coats (e.g. on rough surfaces), re-coat as soon as the coat is dry – usually within 15-30 minutes. Any further coats should be applied as soon as possible but certainly within 4 hours after which time the Hammercote will have started the curing period.
