* Use the 585-022 cleaner.
* Recommended primers:
. metal substrate: two-component epoxy (577 line)
. wood substrate: two-component urethane (574 line)
MIX AND DILUTION
* Mix ratio (volume/volume):
. series 585: 3 parts
. 581-044 (hardener): 1 part
If necessary, use the 585-090 up to a maximum of 33 ml/litre
(125 ml/US gal. or 4.25 oz./US gal.).
* Pot life:
. without accelerator: 7 hours<
. with maximum accelerator: 3 to 4 hours
* Dilution, use 10 to 20% (volume/volume) of either:
. 580-024 (fast evaporation)
. 580-025 (medium evaporation)
. 580-026 (slow evaporation)
* For metallic finishes, use the 585-012 (stabilizing diluent) 10 to 20%
METHOD OF APPLICATION
* Conventional spray
Note: If used with pumps (airless or Airmix), dilute only with the
solvent 580-043 at 10-15% - obtain 26 sec. on EZ # 2.
Important: Always mix well the solvent 580-043 before using it.
* Normal application temperature: 15-30°C (59-86°F).
* Dry film thickness: 1.5 to 2.0 mils (37.5 to 50 microns).
Tests performed at a wet film thickness of 3 mils (75 microns) and a
temperature of 25°C (77°F).
