The correct use: protective metal coatings
... many thanks to Nik H. for sending it in.
Nik wanted to give his garden fence a new coat of paint and decided on FARBENLÖWE's Halvar protective metal coating.
You can find out how this works and what you need here:
- protective metal paint
- possibly painter's tape to mask off the surface that is not to be coated
- paint roller, brush or airless spray gun
- If necessary, a thinner (this can also be used afterwards to clean the device.)
Preparations and processing:
- The processing and especially the drying of the protective metal coating should not take place below 10°C. This information relates to the paint material, substrate and room temperature during processing and the subsequent drying and curing time.
- Dust sources should be removed.
- Use painter's tape to mask off the areas that are not to be coated. Stir the paint well before use.
- The surface must be sanded before use and be clean, dry and free of grease, silicone and wax. You should definitely remove loose old paintwork or rust beforehand. Important: Do not use soapy cleaners or scouring milk. (These are made from fatty acids and are therefore not suitable for dissolving fat.)
- A primer is not necessary. You can also use the protective metal paint as a primer.
- If desired, dilute the metal protective paint with approx. 5 - 10% thinner.
- Spray, roll or brush paint. 1-2 coats are recommended.
The paint is dust-dry after 24 hours. The product can then also be painted over.
