THINNER: Brushing Liquid 333, Spraying Thinner 216
Note: Brightside® Polyurethane must be sanded between coats.
PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES: The surface must be clean and dry. Sand with 220-320 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue.
BARE FIBERGLASS: In Good Condition Begin by scrubbing well using soap and water and a stiff brush. Rinse with fresh water. Remove wax and other contaminants using either Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202 or Fiberglass Surface Prep YMA601V. Sand with 220-320 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue. In Poor Condition Clean as above. Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Apply Pre-Kote.
CLEAR EPOXY: After the epoxy has cured, remove any amine blush by scrubbing well using soap and water, and a stiff brush, or by using Fiberglass Surface Prep YMA601V. Rinse with fresh water and allow to dry. Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue. Apply one coat of Epoxy Primekote 404/414.
BARE WOOD: Sand surface with 180-220 grade (grit) paper, wipe clean. Apply Pre-Kote. Sand surface with 220 grade (grit) paper, wipe clean.
BARE METAL: Sandblast or grind, remove sanding residue. Immediately apply Interprotect 2000E thinned 15% with Interlux Solvent 2316N. When the Interprotect is thumb-print tacky apply one coat of Epoxy Primekote 404/414. Sand with 220 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue.
APPLICATION INFORMATION: Apply 2-3 coats of Brightside® Polyurethane following the proper dry times. Sand between coats using 220-320 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue. Brightside® may be applied by roller and brush using the roll and tip method. Thin if necessary with Brushing Liquid 333 to improve brushing characteristics. It is best to paint on warm, dry mornings. Cold weather retards the drying and humidity can spoil the gloss. Airless Spray Pressure: 170 bar/2500 psi. Tip Size: 0.33-0.41 mm/13-16 thou. Conventional Spray Pressure Pot: Pressure: 3.44-4.47 bar/50-65 psi (gun pressure); 8-10 psi (pot pressure). Tip Size: 0.89-1.4 mm/35-50 thou. Siphon Cup: Pressure: 3.44-4.47 bar/50-65 psi - gun pressure. Tip Size: 1.5-1.8 mm/60-70 thou. Other When spraying Brightside® Polyurethane be sure to follow dry times. Do not apply tack or mist coats. Apply only one coat per day. Spray pressures listed are recommendations only. The applicator may use any settings which yield the best results for the individual spraying technique and current weather conditions. Brightside® Polyurethane is best applied in thin coats. Do not apply heavy coats as this will affect dry through. Failure to follow proper dry times carefully will cause improper drying, wrinkling and loss of adhesion. Avoid painting in direct sunlight. 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. Surface must be dry and clean, and free from grease, detaching paint etc. Be sure to use Epoxy Barrier-Kote 404/414 over clear epoxy to prevent blush from affecting drying and adhesion of Brightside® Polyurethane.
