How to Apply Pettit Unepoxy HRT
Unepoxy HRT is easily applied by brush, roller, or spray. When rolling, use only a high-quality short nap roller cover. Apply using thin coats. For the smoothest possible finish, thin the paint approximately 5-10% using 120 Brushing Thinner. Unepoxy HRT has a tendency for settling to occur, especially if the paint has been on the shelf for several months. Thoroughly mix the paint before using. Before using, check the sides and bottom of the can to make sure all the pigment has been mixed in.
