SURFACE PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS

This primer can be applied directly to metal that has been prepared according to a recognized cleaning method such as Federal Test Method Standard, #141 and Method 2013. It is recommended that all parts be pretreated with PTI’sAcid Etching Wash Primer, PT-402 which meets MIL-C-8514. However, parts can also be pretreated with chemical conversion coating materials or alodine.

  • Scuff the surface with scotch bright pads.
  • Dust off the surface with an air hose and wand.
  • Wipe of the substrate with IPA, Acetone or PTC-2002 to remove grime and oils
  • Remove all remaining dust and debris by lightly wiping the substrate with a tack or “cheese” cloth
  • For additional protection apply PTI’s Acid Etch Primer prior to the Epoxy Primer.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS

Shake component A and B in a paint shaker for 5 – 10 minutes for optimal results. Admix by volume:

  1. Add 3 parts by volume of Component “A” to 1 part by volume of Component “B” and stir thoroughly.Reduce with MIL-T-81772B TY. II at a 10% addition of the admixed primer.
  2. Mix only an amount that can be used in 4 to 8 hour time period.The admixed material should be allowed a 45-minute induction time for best application results.

Reduce: Use reducer PTI-1003 TY II (MIL-T-81772B TY. II).

  • If using PTI additives to adjust the dry and cure times of the coating, please refer to those Product DataSheets for specific instructions for admixing the material.

APPLICATION

This product can be applied using a brush, roller, conventional air spray equipment or HVLP. Please consult with a PTI representative for specific equipment recommendations and settings.

  1. Make sure pots, guns, and lines are purged and cleaned.
  2. Mix both base and catalyst thoroughly and filter/strain before spray application. NOTE: It is not recommended to strain flat/matte coatings.
  3. HVLP spray equipment pressure: 7-10psi. Conventional spray equipment, 15-35psi
  4. Always air-blow and tack wipe the surfaces to be painted. Aircraft should be grounded to prevent static.
  5. Best application results: apply 2 coats: 1 fog/tack coat & 1 full coat from 0.6 – 0.9 mil thickness.
  6. Do not allow more than 24 hours to pass before applying the second coat.
  7. Recommended Dry Film Thickness is 0.6-0.9 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 - 0.9 mils (15-23 microns).Air Dry:Allow applied coating to dry for at least 5 hours before apply a top coat. This primer may be left uncoated for up to3 days without have to scuff or sand. After 4 days a simple sanding or scuff followed by a solvent wipe will be sufficient before applying the topcoat.

  • Tack free within 5 hours
  • Dry hard within 8 hours
  • A full chemical cure can take up to 7 days depending on conditions. The Specifications calls for a 14 days at ambient temperatures
Force Cure:

If force curing with heat is possible then air dry for 15 minutes followed by 1 hour at 150°F - 200°F. This dry time is only intended for testing. Let the coated material cool to room temperature before applying a topcoat.

EQUIPMENT CLEANUP

Use clean PT-1003 Type II Reducer or Acetone. Do not allow material to dry or cure inside any equipment.
