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. Epifanes Nonskid Deckcoating can be used over most types of one-component alkyd or urethane-based paint systems and over properly sanded two-component paint systems.
