Surface Preparation: Aluminum - Abrade with 36 grit disc; Steel - Grit blast steel in accordance with SSPC-SP10 to a 2-3 mil (50-75 micron) profile (in US), or power grind with a 24-36 grit disc to achieve profile; Fiberglass - Degrease, then abrade with 180 grit paper; Wood - Clean then sand smooth using 80-180 grit paper.

Mixing and Reduction: Thoroughly mix the base. Shakers or power mixers are preferred, although thorough hand mixing is acceptable. Add converter; mix thoroughly. Mix ratio by volume is 10:1.5 (10 parts primer to 1.5 parts converter). Reduction is not normally required, but at lower temperatures small amounts (5%) of T0006 may be added. Do not reduce more than 15%. Allow to induct for 10 minutes.

Application Instructions: Apply by airless spray, air atomized spray, brush or roller. Apply 9 mils (225 microns) WFT yielding 4 mils (100 microns) DFT per coat. Multiple coats may be required when using brush or roller.

Note: Only apply Hullgard Extra by roller if applying over Max Cor CF due to risk of snagging roller fibers.

Warning: Do not apply paint materials to surfaces less than 5°F (3°C) above dew point, or to surfaces warmer than 105°F (41°C).
