Leave minimum 24 hours to harden. Sand smooth using Dri-lube paper 120-150 grit. Remove all dust.

Special Notes:

Read individual product data sheets before proceeding.
Do not paint if air or surface temperature is below 10°C or above 30°C, or in extreme humidity.
Avoid painting in direct sunlight and do not paint if rain is imminent.
Do not measure small quantities of two-pack products with plastic syringes, as a contamination of the paint may occur.
Repeated measurements of small quantities may also increase the chance of error.
When mixing 690 LV Epoxy Sheathing 4:1 Resin always use a clean mixing container for each mix.
If the surface is textured or if there are many minor surface defects, 664 Sanding Primer (a high build primer/undercoat) should be applied instead of the 660 Epoxy Enamel Undercoat 1K.
If spraying, the 660 Epoxy Enamel Undercoat 1K or 680 Epoxy Enamel 1K may be applied in one application as “wet on wet” coats. First apply a very light mist coat and wait for it to tack off (approx 20 minutes). Then apply a light coat and again allow to tack off. Repeat process until full coverage has been achieved.

Do not apply heavy coats as paint runs will occur. When spraying, thin 660 Epoxy Enamel Undercoat 1K or 680 Epoxy Enamel 1K with 10-15% 687 Enamel Spraying Thinners.

Allow 7 days before launching boat to ensure the coatings have cured.
