Application notes Epifanes Eggshell Enamel is best used as a finish coat over a build-up of Epifanes Yacht Enamel, Monourethane, Two-part Polyurethane or, Nautiforte. Eggshell Enamel can be used over most other types of one-component alkyd or urethane based paint and over properly sanded two-component paints. See appropriate application and preparation instructions. Coverage approx. 140 sq. ft./liter.
Application conditions Temperature should be between 50F. and 85F. during application. Air humidity below 85%. Avoid painting in too much wind or sun. A rapid loss of solvents will occur under these conditions and will decrease the flowing ability. Add thinner up to the specified percentage to compensate for the faster release of solvents.
