Composition Finish Theoretical Spreading Rate Practical Spreading Rate Zinc phosphate primer, based on an alkyd resin. Matt. At a dry lm thickness of 50 micrometres: 13.5m2/litre. In assessing a practical spreading rate, other factors such as shape of the construction, roughness of the substrate, method and conditions of application, should be considered. A guideline for spraying is: Large Areas: Approx 70% of theoretical coverage. Small Areas: Approx 50% of theoretical coverage. Drying Time Touch dry within 5 hours and recoatable after 12 hours at 20 C and 65% relative humidity. Minimum recommended application temperature 5 C. At lower temperatures and/or conditions of high relative humidity, drying periods will be extended. Washability Volume Solids Flammability Storage Resistant to washing and scrubbing. Clean with a mild detergent solution or white spirit to remove dirt and stains. Approximately 67%. 32 C. Keep in a cool, dry place.

Preparation New Surfaces Preparatory products suitable for use with Sikkens Redox AK Primer include: Sikkens Solvent. The use of emulsion type cleaners followed by thorough water washing and rinsing should be used for removal of any oil or grease deposits. On-site degreasing by the use of white spirit is not recommended as it invariably leads to the spreading of contaminants over a wider area. This procedure should be carried out immediately prior to any other preparation or painting operation. System One coat of Sikkens Redox AK Primer within four hours of preparation. The period between coats should not exceed three months. Refer to the Speciers Guide to Rubbol Opaque Systems for full specication details. Finishes Finishing products suitable for use with Sikkens Redox AK Primer include: Sikkens Onol Primer/Undercoat, Sikkens Rubbol DSA and Sikkens Rubbol AZ. Maintenance Remove all loose or aking paint The following is applicable to both New Surfaces and Maintenance: All exposed metal areas that are seen to be exhibiting signs of corrosion products and foreign matter should be scraped, chipped and wire brushed to remove such contamination. Oil/grease and any other contaminants should be removed with Sikkens Solvent.
