Some Important Points Jet Speed is not recommended as an exterior finish and should be overcoated with a varnish that contains ultra-violet filters such as Schooner or Goldspar. Failure to follow proper dry times carefully will cause improper drying, wrinkling and loss of adhesion. Product temperature should be minimum 10 C/50 F and maximum 29 C/85 F. Ambient temperature should be minimum 10 C/50 F and maximum 35 C/95 F. Substrate temperature should be minimum 10 C/50 F and maximum 29 C/85 F.

Compatibility/Substrates Apply to clean, dry, properly prepared surfaces only. All sanded surfaces must be wiped clean with a cheesecloth dampened with Brushing Liquid 333 to remove sanding residue. Jet Speed can be applied over any varnish as long as it is adhered well and has been cleaned and sanded. Do not apply two part varnishes over Jet Speed.
