Recoating time:                            Epoxies:         Minimum 2 days.
                                                       Other:             Minimum 2 hours.
                                                       Maximum:      One month (self weathering limit)

SURFACE PREPARATION:
Surface must be sound, clean, grease free and dry before painting.

1.  Steel                               For small areas, manual cleaning combined with GP Cleaner/water mixture (1:5) and
                                            scouring pads may be used.  In maintenance situations, grit assisted HPWB is
                                            preferred as it will also remove salts from pitted areas.  The steel must be allowed to
                                           dry fully before priming; however it is necessary to use an inhibitor in the water.
2.  Galvanised steel         Treat with GP Cleaner/water mixture (1:5) with scouring pads.  Wash off all residue
                                            and dry.
3.  Other surfaces             Remove all loose materials and degrease with GP cleaner/water mixture (1:5) and
                                            scouring pads.
                                            Rinse with clean water.
4.  Maintenance                Clean back to sound substrate by the most suitable of the above methods.  Do a
                                             test area to confirm that existing paintwork will not be lifted.  If it is, it must be
                                            blasted or stripped off.

LIMITATIONS:
1.  The film build is too low to give safe self weathering beyond one month.
2.  The acid component can interact with epoxy curing agents, so ageing for at least 2 days is recommended
     before overcoating with epoxies.
3.  Thicker coatings take longer to dry thoroughly.
