DO NOT PAINT
- IF THE TEMPERATURE IS BELOW 10° C OR ABOVE 35° C
- IF THE SURFACE IS DAMP (MOISTURE READING ABOVE 15%)
- IF IT IS RAINING OR RAIN IS FORECAST
- BEFORE 9H00 AND AFTER 16H00 IN THE WINTER
SURFACE PREPARATION: Surfaces must be dry, clean, sound and free form loose materials. Bare metal surfaces must be primed with a metal primer. All rust must be removed by sanding or wire-brushing/ sandblasting or by chemical means.
