Surface Preparation

1. To ensure optimum long term coating system performance, surfaces must be clean, dry and free from dirt, oil grease, salts, welding flux, oxides, old paint or other foreign matter.

2. Prepare surface by power washing, vapor degreasing, solvent cleaning or other chemical and mechanical methods.

3. Surface cleaning methods recommended will depend upon type of foreign matter to be removed and condition of substrate. Consult Alvin Products Technical Service for specific recommendations.

Application Guidelines

1. One coat of Alvin High Temperature Automotive Spray Paint series coatings at 1.0 mil (25 microns) is suitable for use on all types of engine and automotive parts that come in contact with high temperatures.

2. For optimum protection apply two coats of Alvin High Temperature Automotive Spray Paint series coatings to a dry film thickness of 1.0 mil (25 microns) per coat. Total recommended dry film thickness is 2.0 mils (50 microns).

3. The number of coats of Alvin High Temperature Automotive Spray Paint series coatings needed depends upon service conditions of equipment.

Dry Time @ 70°F (21°C) 50% RH

Alvin High Temperature Automotive Spray Paint series coatings will air dry tack and thumb print free in 15 minutes and will dry hard in 8 to 12 hours. Allow 1 hour minimum dry time between coats at 70°F (21°C) and 1/2 hour minimum dry time between coats at 90°F (32°C). Coating has excellent recoat properties.

Storage

Store in cool, dry place with temperature between 50°F and 100° F (10°C and 38°C). Keep container closed when not in use.

Precautionary Information

WARNING: Flammable Liquid and Vapor

Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Vapors may cause flash fire. Do not breathe vapors or spray mist. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Use with adequate ventilation during mixing and application. Wear an appropriate, properly fitted organic vapor cartridge-type respirator (NIOSH approved) during and after application unless air monitoring demonstrates vapor/mist levels are below applicable limits. Follow respirator manufacturer’s directions for respirator use. Wash thoroughly after handling. Wear protective gloves, chemical safety goggles and impervious protective clothing. Use skin cream. In confined spaces it is required to use a positive pressure supplied-air respirator (NIOSH approved). Use explosion-proof lights and electrical equipment. Use only nonsparking tools and equipment. Wear conductive and nonsparking footwear. Make certain all electrical equipment is grounded. Observe all safety precautions and follow procedures described in OSHA regulations. See Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for complete precautionary and disposal information.
