In order to avoid visible joints of individual sections of the treated surface, the material should be applied in one operation using “fresh over fresh” method. Do not apply at temperatures below +50С and above +350С, with strong winds and high humidity. At +20°C and relative humidity of 65%, the coating will be dry on the surface in 2-3 hours and will be ready for overcoating. The coating will be completely dry and able to hold loading in approximately 72 hours. These terms are increasing at a lower temperature and higher humidity. Finishing work, the tools have to be washed immediately with plenty of water. If the paint dries out, it should be washed with organic solvents.
