Before application, all parts should be abraded with a 60 to 100 grit sanding disc and surface thoroughly cleaned. The abrading creates a profile which insures excellent adhesion for coating. Ensure that surface is clean and dry before painting. For optimum results, only apply paint when can is at 70-90°F (21-32°C).
Shake can at least one minute before use. Spray Thermal Kote on metal surface with steady even strokes, holding can 8-10 inches away. Repeat application if a heavy coating is desired.
After painting, clean spray button by inverting can and spraying for 2 seconds.
After applying the Thermal Kote high temperature coating, parts coated require a constant temperature of 400°F (204°C) for approximately 3 hours to insure proper curing. This method bakes the finish and creates a harder and tougher surface. When curing by oven is not practical, infrared heaters may be used (may extend curing time).
When multiple coats are desired after initial curing, lightly abrade surface and reapply Thermal Kote. The high temp paint product shows extremely high scratch resistance and is not affected by oils, greases, harsh chemicals or most acids.
High humidity levels should be avoided during application of the high temperature paint.
