Bonding/priming

While autokote may be applied directly to any properly prepared surface, better corrosion resistance will be obtained over suitable primers. Steel may be primed with abe® 4-metal primer.

Mixing

Stir well before use.

Coverage

±0.7 m2/L on smooth surfaces. (Less on textured surfaces). Minimum two coats.

Application

autokote may be applied by brush but this is normally reserved for small areas. Most commercial applications are made with a splutter gun having a nozzle of 6 mm diameter.

Cleaning

Tools, brushes and mixing equipment should be cleaned immediately after use and before material has set with abe® super brush cleaner followed by washing with soap and water.

Protection/maintenance on completion

None.

Packaging

1 L, 5 L and 25 L containers.

Handling and storage

Shelf life of 24 months, but shorter if in extreme conditions. Keep tightly sealed in a dry cool place in the original packaging.

Caution

autokote is not suitable for use over wax-based materials or PVC underbody coatings as this will affect the drying.
