SURFACE PREPARATION: Surface to be coated must be thoroughly cleaned, sanded and primed. On Ferrous Substrates: All loose scale and rust should be removed before priming. A near white sandblast will provide the best surface for subsequent coatings. Aluminum: Must always be cleaned and etched before painting. Galvanized Steel: Should be thoroughly cleaned, etched, and primed with a primer such as Farwest DOD-E-15328 Pre-treatment Wash Primer (Navy Formula 117).

APPLICATION: Apply with airless or conventional spray equipment. It is possible to brush apply to small areas by making an addition of High-flash Aromatic Solvent, but it not recommended to brush apply larger areas as the product sets up too quickly for quality results. Primers should be of the lacquer proof type such as Farwest X-4985 White Lacquer Proof Primer or X-4959 Red Lacquer Proof Primer.

THINNING: Thin if necessary with Farwest #605 Synthetic Thinner. No thinning should be required for airless application. For conventional spray, a reduction of approximately 15-20% may be necessary for proper atomization and flow. Normally, a viscosity of 22" to 27" on a #2 Zahn Cup will produce the best results.

CLEAN-UP: Tools and equipment may be cleaned with Farwest #605 Synthetic Thinner, Farwest #615 Wash Thinner, or Farwest #610 Lacquer Thinner.
