Application Conditions For Conventional Paint Systems


Sur-Prep® AP-1 should be applied when application temperatures are between 65°F and 90°F (18°C and 32°C) with a relative humidity of less than 70%.


The table on the next page shows the topcoats cured between 65°F and 90°F (10°C and 32°C) that can be chemically reactivated with Sur-Prep® AP-1.

Application Conditions For Conventional Paint Systems Notes


Note 1: Previously applied topcoat shall be overcoated within 72 hours after its application.


Note 2: The volume of TR-112 thinner used shall not exceed one part of TR-112 to four parts of TR-109.


Note 3: Applicable to Desothane HS CA 8000 series only.


Note 4: Applicable to Eclipse ECL-G series only.


Note 5: Application of Sur-Prep® AP-1 over CA 8000 Clear may result in poor adhesion of the subsequent topcoat (Color or Clear).


Note 6: Application of Sur-Prep® AP-1 between Eclipse (Color or Clear) topcoat and subsequently applied Eclipse Clear topcoat may result in hazing appearance issues. No appearance defects, such as hazing, occur when Aerodur 3002 clearcoat is applied over Sur-Prep® AP-1.The table on the next page shows the topcoats cured above 90°F (32°C) that can be chemically reactivated with Sur-Prep® AP-1.

Note 1: Previously applied topcoat shall be overcoated within 72 hours after its application.


Note 2: The volume of TR-112 thinner used shall not exceed one part of TR-112 to four parts of TR-109.


Note 3: Applicable to Desothane HS CA 8000 series only.


Note 4: Applicable to Eclispe ECL-G series only.


Note 5: This includes topcoated surfaces where the amount of drying/curing experienced by the topcoat and/or the curing temperature is unknown.


Note 6: Application of Sur-Prep® AP-1 over CA 8000 Clear may result in poor adhesion of the subsequent topcoat (Color or Clear).


Note 7: Application of Sur-Prep® AP-1 between Eclipse (Color or Clear) topcoat and subsequently applied Eclipse Clear topcoat may result in hazing appearance issues. No appearance defects, such as hazing, occur when Aerodur 3002 clearcoat is applied over Sur-Prep® AP-1.
