Application Data:


Conventional Spray:
A bottom outlet paint pressure pot with agitation, double regulators, moisture trap, 1/2" I.D. fluid hose, 3/8" I.D. air hose. DeVilbiss MBC 510 spray gun with AC tip and needle, NO. 62 air cap, or Binks Model NO. 18 spray gun with NO. 68 needle and 678 PB air cap.

Mixing:
Sift dry powder into liquid component while agitating with mechanical mixer. The use of a "Jiffy Mixer" is recommended. When mixing and spraying wear respirators.

Application:
Flush spray equipment with plenty of fresh water before and immediately after use. Apply in wet cross sprayed coats, overlapping each pass 50%. Do not use excessive atomization pressure, as it will cause over spray and dusting.
For ballast tank service apply one coat at 45-50 mils DFT. For dry voids service apply one coat @ 20-25 mils.

Ventilation:
In confined areas forced air ventilation is required to remove water vapors and to speed drying.
