  • Adjust to spraying viscosity (appr. 60 s DIN 4 mm) adding appr. 5 % KH-Verdünnung (two component products: after mixing)

Electrostatic application

  • Application is not possible


  • Can not be applied as delivered

Other methods

  • Roller and brush application is possible in the quality as delivered


  • Max. 10% KH-Verdünnung


  • Rinse immediately with KH-Verdünnung
  • Residues are dissolvable with Derozink-Verdünnung

Preparation of support

  • Shot blasting to a purity according to SA 2½
  • If necessary clean with high pressure-cleaner and turbo-cleaner-solution
  • Mill scale, welding residues, dust and dirt on the surface which might reduce adhesion have to be carefully and thoroughly removed

General remarks

  • During coating and drying the humidity should be min. 10 % / max. 85 %
  • During coating and drying the environmental temperature should be min. 5°C / max. 30°C
  • Object temperature at least 3° C above dew point.
