oil, mildew, rust and other surface contaminants. The surface
should be a sound and stable. Remove all loose and peeling paint.
Clean with a strong detergent, rinse and allow to dry. For hard,
glossy surfaces, clean with solvent per SSPC-SP1. XIM GON, or
xylene are recommended. Do not use solvents that leave
an oily residue such as mineral spirits or turpentine. Moldy or
mildewed surfaces should be scrubbed with bleach, then
thoroughly rinsed with clean water and allowed to dry. Rotted
wood should be replaced. The moisture content of wood
should be below 15% at application. When priming woo
d knots or sap you may require initial spot priming with XIMís
solvent based primers, X-SEAL or 400W NT.

◦F. It can be applied in high humidity conditions up t
o 90% relative humidity. Under standard conditions, 77◦F and
50% RH, it will dry to touch in about 30-45 minutes. Full cure

of curing. Painting flexible caulks or seams can result
in cracks in the paint film. Plan your job in advance and caulk seams
and edges after painting.
