Drying times are based on temperatures of 20°C, lower temperatures will increase drying times. Please speak with our technical team before elevating temperatures or attempting to force cure any of our products unless already stated. Shop conditions such as having good airflow will optimise curing.
Suitable for application onto Guard EP and Guard GIP as single pack zinc phosphate primers. Alternatively suitable for application onto Guard ETC and Guard ETC-2K, etch primers.
Ensure surfaces are clean, dry and free from grease and other contamination before coating.
Thoroughly degrease and where applicable, abrade to remove rust and promote good adhesion of the coating. For optimum corrosion protection, mild steel should be blast cleaned to Sa2.5. Complex structures may be more effectively cleaned by HPWJ (high pressure water jetting).
