Use for :
- Reactivating paint surfaces for subsequent coats to be applied
- Increasing adhesion between basecoat and clearcoat coatings
- Application on radome polyurethane boots prior to topcoat application
- Enhancing paint adhesion used for stenciling to topcoats
Spray as a thin, wet film to wet the substrate being sprayed.
The Sur-Prep® AP-1 aerosol can be used in conjunction with the Formit® extensions to provide targeted spray to areas that may be difficult to reach but need to be coated. Please refer to our Formit® technical data sheet for more information
Perform application by using standard paint application methods, such as HVLP guns, air assisted airless spray guns, and electrostatic spray equipment.
Coverage is typically 600 to 1000 ft2 /gal (15 to 25 m2 /l) and fly away weight is typically less than 0.2 lb/1000 ft2 (1 kg/1000 m2).
When Sur-Prep® AP-1 is applied, the promoter forms a fine, whitish-gray powder and is easily detectible as it reduces the 60° surface gloss of the topcoat from 90 to below 10.
Once applied, the surface coated with Sur-Prep® AP-1 shall not be touched or disturbed prior to application of any subsequent coating.
Gloss reduction disappears upon application of the subsequent coats and does not affect the appearance in any way.
