Drying and Curing Time
- Touch Dry: 15 minutes
- Hard Dry: 12 hours
- Full Cure: 24 hours
- Re-coatable: 45 minutes minimum
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.
Recoatable with most one and two-component coatings including Guard FEB + FES (alkyds) or Guard SPU (polyurethane) single pack topcoats or Guard MSP-2K for extra durability.
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 or power tooled to achieve ST3. Complex structures may be more effectively cleaned by HPWJ (high pressure water jetting).
Substrate temperature during application and curing should be above 5°C (41°F). Substrate temperature during application and curing should be at least 3°C (5°F) above dew point.
Guard Solvent F (for brush/roller)
