APPLICATION AND USE
Preparation PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACE:
In Good Condition: Wash down with a suitable detergent, rinse with fresh water and allow to dry. Abrade with 280-320 grade (grit) paper.
In Poor Condition: Remove all previous coatings and prime the substrate.
PRIMING:Substrate preparation is covered separately on the primer datasheet.
BARE WOOD: Sand smooth with 80-180 and then 280 grade paper. Remove sanding dust by brushing, dusting and wiping. If wiping with solvent then allow to dry completely before applying products recommended for application direct to wood (see specific coating systems). Prime with Yacht Primer or Clear Wood Sealer Fast Dry.
STEEL: Degrease with solvent or Super Cleaner. Gritblast to Sa 2½ - near white metal surface. If gritblasting is not possible, grind the metal surface with 24-36 grit abrasive discs to a uniform, clean, bright metal surface 50-75-microns) anchor pattern. Use angle grinder on small areas. Clean thoroughly and allow to dry.Prime with Yacht Primer.
ALUMINIUM: Degrease with solvent or Yacht Line Super Cleaner. Sand well using 60-120 grade (aluminium compatible) paper. Clean thoroughly and allow to dry. Prime with Yacht Primer as soon as possible (within 8 hours).
GRP: Degrease with solvent or Super Cleaner. Sand well using 180-220 grade paper. Clean thoroughly and allow to dry.
No primer required - apply Pre-Kote direct to GRP.
AGED/WEATHERED GELCOATS: Due to the potentially porous nature of aged/weathered gelcoats the risk of solvent/moisture entrapment after painting is much higher than when gelcoat is new.As a result this entrapment could lead to blistering of the paint film.To reduce the risk of paint film blistering it is recommended that 3 coats of Interprotect are applied to seal the gelcoat.Interprotect must be overcoated with Perfection Undercoat prior to topcoat application.
ALL SUBSTRATES: Use Pre-Kote undercoat.If spray applying Toplac, Pre-Kote must be aged a minimum of 14 days. If this is not possible Perfection Undercoat can also be used as an undercoat.
Method Sand the undercoat smooth with 320-400 grade (grit) wet or dry paper. Remove dust with a dust wipe. Apply 1-3 coats.
Tips: Mixing Stir well before use.
Thinner Thinner No.1 (Brush/Roller), Thinner 910 (Spray application - PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY.).
Thinning In warm or windy conditions up to 10% of thinner may be added to ease application.
Cleaner Thinner No.1.
Ventilation and Humidity Control Apply in dry, well ventilated conditions. Avoid applying late in the evening as condensation can cause a loss of gloss overnight.
Conventional Spray Thin 10-25% with Thinner No. 910 (For Professional use ONLY) to a viscosity of 18-22 secs (BS4) or 16-20 secs (DIN4). Pressure: 3-4 bar. Tip Size: 1.1-1.4 mm. NOTE: Pre-Kote undercoat MUST be aged a minimum of 14 days before application of Toplac.
Spray application - PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY.
Other: For lighter colours, mix the first coat of finish 50:50 with the undercoat to improve the depth of colour and opacity. For best results when applying by roller, smooth off with a pad or brush.
