APPLICATION AND USE
BARE WOOD: Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Wipe with Brush Thinner 2333N. Apply a sealer coat of Perfection Varnish reduced 10% with Brush Thinner 2333N.
PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES: With Perfection Varnish: In Good Condition Sand surface with 120-150 grade (grit) paper and remove all dust. In Poor Condition If varnish is badly checked or peeling, remove finish to bare wood with Interstrip Semi-Paste 299E.
CLEAR EPOXY: Allow epoxy to cure for 5-7 days. Begin by scrubbing well using soap and water and a stiff brush. Wash down with fresh water. Wet sand with 180-220 grade (grit) paper. Wipe with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202.
Method Apply at least 5-7 coats on bare wood and a minimum of 3 coats on surfaces previously coated with Perfection Varnish. Sand between each coat with 220 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue with a rag dampened with Brushing Thinner 2333N.
Mixing Mix base and curing agent thoroughly at the specified ratio.
Thinner Brush/Roller - Brush Thinner 2333N.
Cleaner Epoxy - Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Bare Wood - Brush Thinner 2333N.
Ventilation and Humidity Control It is best to paint on warm, dry mornings. Cold weather retards the drying and humidity can spoil the gloss.
Brush Use a natural bristle brush.
Roller If rolling, use a thin nap roller and "tip-off" with a clean natural bristle brush.
Other Perfection Varnish is not recommended for spray application because of the slow evaporating system which leads to slow set-up time and therefore possible sagging. Perfection Varnish differs from Interthane Plus in that it is not supplied in concentrated form. It is ready for application as soon as the base and curing agent are mixed.
Some Important Points When applying Perfection Varnish to clear epoxy, follow instructions carefully. Failure to do so will result in poor dry and loss of adhesion. Avoid painting in direct sunlight. Product temperature should be minimum 10 deg C/50 deg F and maximum 29 deg C/85 deg F. Ambient temperature should be minimum 10 deg C/50 deg F and maximum 35 deg C/95 deg F. Substrate temperature should be minimum 10 deg C/50 deg F and maximum 29 deg C/85 deg F.
Compatibility/Substrates Apply to clean, dry, properly prepared surfaces only. Do not apply over one part paints.
