SF THINNER is a thinner developed specifically for road marking paints TOLUENE FREE. SF THINNER does not contain aromatic solvent.
Features and Benefits:
- Specifically formulated for use with solvent-based acrylic paints
- Can be used for thinning to maintain correct viscosity in lower temperatures: also for retarding dry times in warmer temperatures
- Excellent for cleaning spray equipment & tools as breaks down paint more effectively than gun cleaner or cellulose thinners
- Free of aromatic solvents, therefore removing exposure to some of the most harmful solvents
The application surface should be sound and clean, free from grease, oil, rust, scale, dirt, or any other soiling that might affect adhesion or performance. In any case, but especially in the case of overcoating existing line markings, it is further recommended that test areas be coated to ensure good adhesion and/or compatibility with the substrate.Tarmac – weathered - It is recommended that asphalt and other similar surfaces be allowed to through harden for up to 6 months before painting. Test trials should be carried out in the first instance on a small area.
Concrete and other cementitious surfaces – including powerfloat, tamped or brushed concrete, monoblocks and pavers – Ensure surface is sound, clean and free from laitance – we recommend a preparation method suitable for the specific location and surface is carried out before application of product, to ensure surface is properly prepared back to clean and sound substrate.
Examples of preparation methods that may be suitable are captive shot blasting, diamond grinding, scabbling or planing. It is critical that utmost attention is paid to cleanliness and good workmanship, whatever preparation method is used, as the presence of any loose material, dust, soiling or previous coatings are likely to reduce adhesion of new coatings.
New concrete should be left to harden before coating, as the curing process and residual moisture content can lead to product delamination if coated too early.
Asphalt and tarmacadam - no primer required
External concrete, pavers and monoblocks - use FP Line Primer
Internal powerfloated concrete - use Etch Primer or FP Line Primer
Mixing instructions: Stir thoroughly before use.
Thinning: This product is supplied ready to use and need not be thinned. If thinning is required, Type 2 Thinners may be used, up to 20% by volume.
We recommend the use of airless spray equipment for best finish
