Application: Apply with a brush. Three coats will provide the best possible protection to epoxy primed metal surfaces.
The paint was easy to track down, and order. I received it very quickly. Thank You
An epoxy primer is recommended by the manufacturer. We offer epoxy primers from PTI Products, Poly Fiber, and Randolph. A search on our web site for epoxy primer will return the relevant results.
The material has a 4 year shelf life. The customer must seal and store properly for full shelf life once opened.
Per Randolph: cold and damp will impede any coating from drying. You can give it a week to be safe but there is no guarantee. Using a little heat might be the best help.
The vendor recommends applying to an epoxy primed surface. It should work with zinc primer but it is not per the vendor recommendations.
