How to Apply Bedec Metal Primer
Apply using brush, roller or spray.
Do not apply when air/surface temperature is below 8°C. Also avoid application when fog or rain looks likely. Drying and film formation can otherwise be affected, or flash rusting.
Stir well. Check colour before use.
In most cases only one coat of primer will be necessary. However, occasionally a second coat may be applied to ensure maximum durability and build.
Do not overspread.
Please Note: Not recommended for floors or decks (or any surfaces subject to immersion or prolonged contact with water).
At 18°C and 50% Relative Humidity: Dry 2–4 hours, recoatable after 4 hours.
Low temperatures/high humidity may cause brown spotting. In this case a further coat may be needed.
Fully hardened after 2 weeks.
Clean up: Immediately after use with warm soapy water. Remove as much product as possible prior to cleaning.
