Directions for Use:
This paint is intended for use as an intermediate or finish coat over rust inhibitive primers on structural steel, over itself, or over other oleoresinous paints, All oil, grease, dust, and loose or non-adherent paint shall be removed, as residues of oil and grease remaining on the surface will result in decreased paint performance. If the undercoat is damaged, the steel shall be spot-cleaned and spot-primed with rust inhibitive primer.

Mix paint thoroughly before use. If the pigment has settled, pour off most of the liquid. Thoroughly mix the pigment with the remaining liquid, taking care to scrape all the pigment off the bottom of the can. Gradually add the poured-off liquid and mix thoroughly. Mixing may be made easier by transferring contents to a larger container or by pouring the paint to and from another container. Examine bottom of container for unmixed pigment. Screen paint before applying.

Thin paint only if necessary, using only mineral spirits. For brush application under normal conditions, no thinning should be necessary. For spray applications, add up to one pint of thinner per gallon of paint when necessary.

Apply by brush or spray to the specified film thickness or, if none is specified to at least 1.5 mils (38 microns) dry or approximately 3.0 mils (75 microns) wet. The surface to be painted shall be dry; the surface temperature shall be at least 5 F (3 C) above the dew point; and the temperature of the air shall be over 40 F (4 C) Do not paint outdoors in rainy weather or if freezing temperature are expected before the paint dries.
