SURFACE PREPARATION AND APPLICATION SYSTEM

Bare Steel. Onto sandblasted steel according to SA 2,5 – apply two coats of EPOZINC 2C or EPOFOND AM-9. If sandblasting would not be possible degrease the surface and remove any trace of corrosion providing a suitable anchor pattern. Any loose paint should be meccanically removed. Apply 2 coats of EPOFOND AM-9 primer and let dry. Fill up if necessary with PLAMUR FINISHER LIGHT. Apply then one coat of POLIFOND primer, let dry for 24 hours and sandpaper. Overcoat with 2 coats of NEUTRO SPACE TOP allowing 18-24 hours between coats. 

Fibreglass. The surface to be coated should be degreased with suitable cleaner, rinsed and slightly sanded with fine abrasive paper. Remove dust and clean the surface. If the surface is slightly powdering it is necessary to apply one coat of POLIFIBER PRIMER allowing 18-24 hours between coats. Fill up if necessary with PLAMUR FINISHER LIGHT. Overcoat with 2 coats of  NEUTRO SPACE TOP   allowing 24 hours between coats. 

Bare Wood. The surface should be clean, dry and well seasoned. If required apply a sealing coat of POLIGLASS VARNISH diluted 50% or more with THINNER 203. After 24 hours sandpaper and apply 2 coats of  NEUTRO SPACE TOP allowing 24 hours between coats. 

Previously painted wood.Proceed with a patch test on a small area of the coated surface to verify if the old paint is compatible and to make sure that the old coating is still in sound condition. If the old coating is in good conditions and of 2-pack polyurethane nature, apply then one coat of POLIFOND and let dry for 12-24 hours. Sandpaper and overcoat with 2 coats of NEUTRO SPACE TOP allowing 18-24 hours between coats.
In the case of loose or powdery paint or if not compatile it is recommended that the old paint should be removed completely down to bare wood and that application directions as described above for bare wood be followed.
