WEATHER GUARD™ can be used on most any interior or exterior surfaces such as doors, trim, cabinets, walls, pipes, holding tanks, machinery & equipment, etc. WEATHER GUARD™ has excellent adhesion on hard types of wood, aluminum, steel, galvanized, primed metal and non-ferrous metal in a normal to moderate chemical environment. It can be used as a concrete or masonry paint. It is excellent for both renovations and new construction on residential, commercial and industrial applications. WEATHER GUARD™ may not be compatible over some previously coated surfaces. Check adhesion and compatibility by testing a small area and checking after 48 hours.
For proper adhesion it is essential that the surface is properly prepared by removing all dirt, oil, grease, rust, scale and other surface contaminants. Pressure wash exterior surfaces with a minimum of 1500 psi using a water and chlorine solution. Wash interior surfaces by hand with a powered household cleaner and water. Remove loose paint and powdery substances. Glossy surfaces must be de-glossed before application. Scuff all glossy surfaces or use liquid de-glossing chemicals to prepare the surface. Rust and corrosion must be primed with METAL-PRIME RED-OX™, a red iron oxide primer to prevent rusting.
Do not apply when temperatures are below 40 degrees Fahrenheit or when humidity is very high. Stir paint thoroughly. Do not apply when coating will be subjected to rain or heavy dew before it has had enough time to dry (2 to 4 hours). Drying time will vary from location to location depending on weather conditions.
It is excellent for spraying, but can be brushed or rolled using a thin nap roller cover or sponge roller cover. Spread uniformly. Sets to touch in approximately one hour, and dries in approximately 2 to 4 hours. Wait at least 4 hours before recoating. Two coats are recommended. Thinning of this product is not recommended, but in extreme cases do not use more than a ½ pint of water per gallon of WEATHER GUARD™. Since WEATHER GUARD™ is a waterborne product, it does require 5 to 7 days to achieve an adequate cure. Care should be taken within the cure time not to damage the finish.
Clean up all spills, tools and overspray immediately while the coating is still wet with warm soapy water.
