SURFACE PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS

ALL SURFACES:

Remove all dirt, grease, oil, salt and chemical contaminants by washing the surface with PTC2001C0 VOC All Purpose Aircraft Cleaner/Degreaser. Then rinse thoroughly with water. If you wish to use solvents PTI recommends IPA, Acetone or MEK. Remove all remaining dust and debris by lightly wiping the surface with a tack rag or cheese cloth. All surfaces must be dry at time of application.

STEEL:

Hand tool (SSPC-SP-2) or power tool (SSPC-SP-3) clean to remove all loose rust, mill scale, and deteriorated previous coatings. Abrasive blasting to a minimum Commercial Grade (SSPC-SP-6, NACE 3) with a1–2 mil (25–50µ) surface profile is recommended for optimal performance. Abrasive blast cleaned steel requires two coats of primer. Scuff the surface with scotch bright pads.

  • For additional protection apply PTI’s Acid Etch Primer.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS

Shake the aerosol can until the rattle comes loose and then continue to shake for 5 minutes or until the contents of the can are even dispersed.

APPLICATION

This product can be applied using an aerosol can or conventional spray equipment.

  1. Always air-blow and tack wipe the surfaces to be painted.
  2. Best application results: apply 2 coats: 1 fog/tack coat & 1 full coat from 0.6 – 1.5 mil thickness.
  3. Recommended Dry Film Thickness is 0.6-1.5 mils.

NOTE: Application of PTI products requires the use of all OSHA approved safety equipment, including proper ventilation. Additionally, PTI products require the recommended temperature/humidity conditions and film thickness ranges for optimal performance. The material, hangar, and aircraft skin temperatures should be no lower than 75⁰ F / 25⁰ C before, during and after application.

DRYING & CURING SCHEDULE

Dry times are based on the dry film thickness between 0.6 – 1 mils (25-50 microns). Thicker films and cooler conditions may take the coating longer to dry.

Air Dry:

Allow applied coating to dry for at least 20 minutes or until the coating is dry hard before handling or exposing to heat.
