To achieve expert results, please take the time to carefully read and understand the following directions before you begin your restoration project. These directions are meant to be general guidelines only and do not cover every application or environmental situation. If you have remaining questions or concerns, please contact us for technical assistance.

ALWAYS WEAR PROTECTIVE GLOVES AND SAFETY GLASSES. ALWAYS WORK IN A WELL-VENTILATED AREA. Please heed all labeled warning and caution notices on all products.

Coverage:

Aerosol: 125 sq. ft. @ 1 mil thickness.
Quart: 200 sq. ft. @ 1 mil thickness.
Gallon: 800 sq. ft. @ 1 mil thickness.

Surface Preparation:

Cavity Coater requires minimal surface preparation to be effective. Remove any readily accessible loose scaly rust. If grease/oil is present, clean surface using KBS Klean.

CAUTION: Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing. Wear protective gloves and protective goggles. DO NOT SMOKE. Use only with adequate ventilation during application and drying.

NOTE: Do not caulk or paint over Cavity Coater. Cavity Coater should be applied AFTER paints/coatings have completely cured.

Aerosol Can Directions:

Shake well before use & occasionally again often during application process. Hold can approximately 8 -12 inches from surface to be coated. Apply a thin, even coat of 1 mil thickness. Cover completely but do not over-saturate. Wait 10 minutes for the coating to wick into the seams and weld joints. Remove any excess coating with a clean rag dampened with mineral spirits.

NOTE: Do not caulk or paint on top of Cavity Coater. For additional protection, Cavity Coater can be applied to weld seams after painting, if desired. Remove any excess Cavity Coater as described above.

For hard to reach enclosed cavities, attach a Cavity Wand to the Cavity Coater can & insert the wand into the cavity. Depress nozzle and withdraw from cavity at about one foot per second. Repeat to ensure complete coverage or as needed. Flush residual coating from Cavity Wand by inverting Cavity Coater Aerosol can and spraying for 10 seconds to flush Cavity Wand.

Bulk Can (Quart/Gallon) Directions:

1. Surface should be clean and dry. Shake can well before using.

2. Cavity Coater is applied through a KBS Underseal Gun with a CC Wand attachment or an auto body Schutz applicator type gun with spray wand. Cavity Coater contents may be poured into a clean container pot which fits your applicator gun. Excess coating may be removed with mineral spirits.

3. Apply a uniform coating to interior surfaces. For optimum protection, a 1 mil dry film is recommended. Varying air pressure and wand speed through cavity area will aid in determining coverage. Typically move a one foot per second.

WARNING: If product is to be sprayed into enclosed areas such as door panels, the solvents in Cavity Coater may require several hours to escape. During this time, the enclosed area must be kept from heat, sparks, electrical devises, or open flames which could ignite vapors.

Removing Excess Cavity Coater:

Lightly dampen (do not soak) a clean dry rag with mineral spirits and wipe off any excess Cavity Coater.

NOTE: Do not caulk or paint over Cavity Coater. Cavity Coater should be applied AFTER paints/coatings have completely cured.

Cleaning Cavity Wands:

Flush residual coating from Cavity Wand by inverting Cavity Coater Aerosol can and spraying for 10 seconds to flush Cavity Wand.
