Minimum Recommended Dry film thickness: 3-5 mils (75-125um) this is normal achieved in 2-3 coats.
Coverage: On porous surfaces like rust and corrosion approximately 100 sq. ft. per quart or 400 sq. ft. per gallon (9.5m 2 per liter) at 2 mils (50um) thickness. Coverage will vary depending on surface profile, application method and film thickness.
General appearance and Characteristics: Smooth ceramic like finish with very high levels of flexibility and toughness. Strong resistance to impact, high temperature, abrasion and common aggressive chemicals including; Acids, Alkalis, Salts, Minerals, Solvents, Fuels and Hydraulic fluids.
Compatibility with other topcoats: RustSeal can be topcoated with any type of topcoat and primer systems including but not limited to Urethanes, Epoxies, Enamels, Fiberglass resins, Water based coatings, lacquers and two component automotive refinishing products.
Container Availability: 8oz (236mls), Pint (475mls), Quart (946mls), Gallon (3.78L), 5 Gallon (18.9L), Drum 55 Gallon (208L)
Pot life: Pot life will depend on local humidity conditions and the length of time the coating is exposed to moisture. Though providing the can is resealed well and only opened for limited periods at a time the average life is approximately 1-2 months.
Solvent: Use only KBS #1 Thinner. The use of other solvents can cause premature coating failure and or lost of adhesion.
Storage Requirements: Store in cool dry conditions away from direct sun light 41-95°F (5-35°C)
