Awlgrip Crater-X Anti Cratering Solution

CRATER-X is an additive developed for use with AWLGRIP and AWLCRAFT 2000 Topcoats to prevent cratering, crawling, and fisheyes caused by minor surface contamination. CRATER-X alters the surface tension of the coating improving flow and leveling. Use CRATER-X after a surface contamination problem has been identified and corrected, or whenever the quality of surface preparation is in doubt. CRATER-X is not a substitute for proper cleaning or surface preparation. It will not overcome severe surface contamination conditions. CRATER-X is to be used in topcoats only--never add it to primers.

Mixing and Reduction - Add 1/2 to 1 liquid ounce (15-30 ml) of Crater-X to one gallon of Awlgrip or Awlcraft 2000 base component. Thoroughly mix material under mechanical agitation.

Important - Allow mixture to stand 30 minutes, then add converter and reducer and apply in standard fashion.

Crater-X can be added to topcoats when the base, converter, and reducer are already combined. However, Crater-X is most effective when Crater-X is added to the base component before the base and converter are combined. Do not use Crater-X in primers.

Application Instructions - See primary product Awlgrip Crater X is being used with. Do not apply to surfaces warmer than 105 F or colder than 55 F. Do not attempt to cure below 55 F.
