  • Coverage: Recommended Film Thickness wet 20-30 mils, 10-15 mils dry.

  • Conventional Roller: Apply in two coats and check application with a wet film gauge to ensure that the minimum wet film thickness of each coat is obtained. Keep roller cover saturated with material at all times. Finish off with a dry roller in downward direction to ensure a uniform finish with the stipple all in one direction. Second coat should be applied when material is no longer tacky (2-4 hours).
