All surfaces should be cleaned and free of dirt, salt, oil, grease, chemical deposits, and other surface contaminants by washing with a commercial detergent or suitable cleaner. High gloss surfaces should be scuff sanded to insure good adhesion. Surface should be dry when painted.

A light mist coat may be applied immediately followed by a heavier second coat. In many cases a heavier first coat, evenly applied, will provide adequate hiding and coverage. A medium 3/8” soft woven covers is recommended for rolling and .013 to .015 tip is recommended for airless spray application. Ambient air, paint and substrate temperature should be at least 50°F at the time of application.

When evenly applied at the recommended dry film thickness of 1-1.25 Mil, SPC's Water-Reducible Protective Enamel should be dry to touch in 45-60 minutes and dry to handle in 4-6 hours at 77°F and 50% Relative Humidity. High film thickness, low air movement, and/or high humidity will increase dry time.
