All dust should be removed from the substrate by using clean brushes and /or to the application of this product. For additional protection in severe corrosion environments additional coats of Simguard-2120 may be necessary for which another shade is recommended to provide a contrast in multi-coat application. On a primed surface a DFT of 325 microns 13 mils is recommended. When applied directly on a blasted and cleaned surface, a 400 micron 16 mil. DFT is advised. This product is self-priming and can be used on concrete.

Additional Application Data:
At temperatures, below 15 C/59 F an induction time of the mixed components of 30 minutes should be allowed. The recommended method of application is by airless spray. Use of brush or roller should be restricted to small areas only. The substrate temperature before coating should be 5-7 F above the dew point. Application below 10 C/50 F or over 50 C/122 F and/or when the relative humidity is over 80% should be avoided. The spray fan should be adjusted to minimize overspray.
