RANDOLPH X-1567B WING WALK COMPOUND BLACK MIL-W-5044 TYPE 2 QUART

Worked great and looks great! We masked the wing really well and applied it over the current wing walk with a 3 heavy nap roller and it looks brand new!

RANDOLPH X-1567B WING WALK COMPOUND BLACK MIL-W-5044 TYPE 2 QUART

Wing Walk compound worked very well. I cleaned the worn walk area with dish soap and water rinse - then let dry. Then carefully taped the perimeter with blue painters tape and was careful to push the tape down real well to avoid any paint-creep onto the adjoining white paint on the plane. I then stirred the compound for about 15 minutes...its got alot of hard packed sand on the bottom of the can - it does eventually blend in...I promise! I then applied the compound to the wing walk with a 3 inch roller which worked very well. After about 30 minutes of drying, I then held my breathe and pulled off the painters tape and hope I ended up with clean, crisp lines. The end result worked out well fortunately.

RANDOLPH X-1567B WING WALK COMPOUND BLACK MIL-W-5044 TYPE 2 QUART

November 29, 2023

This product applied really easy and looks fabulous. Was a little nervous about painting my wing with something permanent and it come out looking horrible. All the silica is settled in the bottom of the can and is hard you need to mix it really well about 5 to 10 minutes, i applied it with a 3/8” roller and didn’t work it to much as it will tend to get clumpy let dry and did a second coat. It took a half of the quart to do my piper 140 wing about 12 square feet. Craig

Q: How much Toluene per quart of Randolph wing walk compound do I need? Or is it mostly for prep and clean up?

The wing walk compound is ready to use out of the can, but it can be thinned 5 to 1 with Toluene if the application requires it.

Q: Regarding the Randolph Wing Walk Compound: Is it necessary to remove the old wing walk paint or should I just wipe clean with solvent and apply paint?

It can be used over itself, as long |as the surface is cleaned properly and there is no contamination.

Q: How many square feet does one gallon of the Randolph Wing Walk Compound cover?

It depends on how thick the coats you use are, but a general guide would be one unthinned gallon covers approximately 150 square feet with one coat.

Q: What is the temperature range for applying Randolphs wing walk?

It can be applied at any temperature. The vapors will hang around and stink up the place when the temperature is below 65 degrees F and the lower the temperature the longer it takes to dry. 65-90 degrees F is optimum.

Q: What product do you recommend to use for cleaning/prepping a surface with pre-existing walk compound?

To clean and prep a pre-existing walk compound you will just need to dust it off and clean with soap and water. If you wanted to remove the walk compound, you will then need to heat it up and physically scrape it off.

Q: Will this Randolph Wing Walk adhere well to bare steel, such as the step on my 170, or does it require a primer?

Primer would be best, but not required.

Q: Is Wing walk waterproof? Is it effected by moisture?

It is oil based so it is pretty waterproof when dry.

Q: Is there a shelf life for the X1567 Wing Walk?

Yes, the shelf life is two years from the date of manufacture.

Q: How long does it take to dry and completely be able to walk on?

Per the Ceconite How To Manual, it dries overnight, can be walked on after 24 hours, but suggests using caution the first week, it will be a little tacky.

Q: Can it be applied in direct sun when the plane surface might be 150-180F or best apply on a shady day or hangar?

Per Randolph: For best results, apply in a controlled environment.
