Q: Does PTI wing walk paint have UV ray inhibiters and non yellowing in your white color? What is the grit size of the granuals? Are the grit granuals white in color the same as the white color I would order?

Per PTI: Our wing walk is a two component Polyurethane that is chemical, fluid and solvent resistant. The PT-766 has been put through exhaustive testing with regard to weathering as well, a minimum of 1000 hours in an accelerated weathering device without defect. Which is why all of the polyurethanes that PTI manufactures come with UV inhibitors and non yellowing additives. The wing walk coating has all of the same properties as our polyurethane top coat with the exception of the grit. The grit itself is opaque and the size of the grit is 20, which is somewhat rough.

Q: Can I roll the PTI wing walk coating over the existing wing walk or does it need to stripped first?

Your question is a good one and the first time we have ever been asked. Generally, as you no doubt know, we advise taking down old paint before applying new for two reasons: 1. The smooth surface of old paint and the absence of contact with the actual substrate can and most often does prohibit adhesion of the new paint. 2. Solvents in the new paint can bite into the old paint and cause it to lift. When it does the new paint lifts with it.

Wing walk coatings are a bit different. They have grit in them and are not a smooth surface so new paint should adhere to the old. If there are no breaches (flaking, peeling, cracking) of the old paint then the solvents in the new wing walk should not penetrate to lift the old paint (there is no guarantee on that) so adhesion of the new paint should not be affected.

A couple of things to consider: 1. The age of the old paint. The older it is the more likely it is that it can be compromised by application of new paint. 2. Whether the old paint has already been painted over. The more layers of old paint, the more likely it is that new paint will compromise it or fail to adhere outright.

Regardless of what you decide to do, we recommend that the surface be thoroughly cleaned with a degreasing solution. After the surface dries completely, decontaminate the surface and remove any residue from the degreasing solution with acetone before painting.

Q: Is the PTI wing walk coating spray-able? Is it applied over bare aluminum or over primer?

No, this product is not spray-able because of the contents inside of it. This can be applied to epoxy primed metal.

Q: What color gray is the gray wing walk? Can you provide a color code so that the color can be identified in your color chart?

The gray for the polyurethane wing walk is federal color standard 36231 Flat Gray.

Q: What is a reasonable expectation for square foot coverage for a quart of flat black PTI Wing Walk?

The PTI wing walk will get 400 sq/ft per gallon at 1.5 mil thickness.

Q: Is the PTI Wing Walk Coating meant to be applied directly to the metal?

Yes, you can apply this directly to the metal. No primers needed.

Q: What is the typical coverage/volume for the PTI wing walk? I need to cover approx 25 sq ft. Thanks!

The PTI wing walk will get 400 sq/ft per gallon at 1.5 mil thickness.

Q: Does the wing walk compound come with the catalyst when a gallon is ordered?

Yes, the catalyst is included.

Q: Is this PTI wing walk coating available in either clear or grey?

There are three colors available in the drop down menu. They are: White, Black, and Grey.

Q: Is this PTI Wing Walk coating a thick mixture, or is it a thin mixture like traditional polyurethane paint?

Its thickness or viscosity is the same as the regular polyurethane. It is also the case that regardless of gloss the thickness is about the same the differences are chemically insignificant. However, the wing-walk coating does typically have grit so that changes its thickness and its application.
