Method of Application
Capalac Rostschutzgrund can be applied with brush, roller or spraying equipment. Stir well before use. Thin with synthetic resin thinner, if necessary.
Guidelines for Spray Application:
|Ø Nozzle||Pressure||Thinning||Material temperature|
|High pressure||1,5 - 1,8 mm||3–4 bar||max. 10% by volume||-|
|Low pressure||1,5 - 1,8 mm||0,2–0,5 bar||max. 10% by volume||-|
|Airless||0,011–0,013 inch||180–230 bar||– (delivered viscosity)||35°C|

Lower Temperature Limit for Application and Drying:
+5 °C for product, substrate and ambient air. Relative humidity must not exceed 80 %.
|Drying Times at 20 °C, |
65 % relative humidity
Lower temperatures, higher humidity and thick film application extend the drying time.
Immediately after use with solvent naphta/white spirit or suitable synthetic resin thinner.
