Surface Prep

The success of any coating application is directly proportional to the completeness of the substrate preparation and the care the application crew puts into the application.

Application Method

Brush, roller, spray. IMPORTANT: Induce for thirty (30) minutes. Equipment Options: Brush: Good quality 4” wide brush with short hair bristles. Roller: 1/8” – 1/4” mohair Conventional Spray: DeVilbiss MBC-510 gun; E Tip and 704 Air Cap; 1/2” ID material hose; double regulated pressure tank with oil and moisture separator. Airless spray – Graco 30:1 ratio pump with large surge chamber; Reverse- A-Clean tip with .019” to .023” orifice.

Film Thickness

Epoxytec A1 Primecoat™ can be a single coat or a multiple coat system. Epoxytec A1 Primecoat™ can be applied onto a surface at 6 mils (minimum) – 12 mils (maximum) per coat DFT. For a total coating thickness exceeding 12 mils, multiple coats are necessary
