Coverage

Recommended film thicknesses Theoretical coverage
dry wet
40 µm 95 µm 10.7 m2/l
60 µm 140 µm 7.2 m2/l

Drying times

DFT 50 um + 15 °C + 23 °C + 60 °C
Dust dry, after 20 min 15 min 5 min
Touch dry, after 6 h 1 h 15 min
Recoatable, after 24 h 3 h 2 h

Drying and recoating times are related to the film thickness, temperature, the relative humidity of the air and ventilation.

Application details

Application method

All surfaces must be dry. The temperature of the ambient air, surface or paint should not fall below +15 ºC during application or drying. Relative humidity should be between 20 - 70 %. The surface temperature of the steel should remain at least 3 ºC above the dew point.

Preparation

Primed surfaces: Oil, grease, salt and dirt are removed from the surface by appropriate means. Repair any damage to the primer coat. Note the overcoating time of primer. (ISO 12944-4)
