How To Use
Open lever lid cans with care away from face and eyes. electrox can be applied using brush, airless or conventional spray. Ideally apply to steel surfaces prepared to Swedish Standard SA 2.5 (Second Quality BS. 4232) Do not exceed 75 micron surface profile. Stir before and during use – feel for settled zinc powder with stirrer and continue to stir until fully incorporated.
electrox can be used to protect rusted, wire-brushed substrate – remove all loose flaky corrosion deposits. All surfaces must be free of grease, oil and millscale.
Stir product well before and during use.
Ensure all edges are protected. Apply 1 full coat do not over brush.
For severe, marine duty the application of a second coat after 3 hrs is recommended. Each coat should be applied to WFT (wet film thickness) of 100 microns to achieve around 42 microns DFT (dry film thickness) per coat.
Surface dry 20-30 minutes. Hard Dry 3 hours.
Over coating can be carried out once film is hard dried – but high solvency top coats should be applied after 24 hrs. electrox can be over coated with a wide-range of top coating systems – check compatibility on small scale before use. Where surface is likely to be subject to mechanical impact from debris over coating with stone chip protection is desirable.
Coverage 8-10 sq metres per litre
