Apply only when air and surface temperatures are above
50ºF (10ºC) and 90ºF (32ºC) and humidity is below 85% to
ensure proper drying. Before using, mix thoroughly to
ensure any settled pigment is re-dispersed. Thinning is
not required. Avoid painting in direct sunlight or on hot
surfaces. Use a good quality synthetic brush
or ¼”-⅜”nap roller.
Avoid excessive brushing as this will reduce film

smooth and uniform flow. Apply two coats 45 minutes
apart to achieve maximum glowing effect.
