The surface should be clean, dry, free of all old or flaking coatings, mill scale or loose rust.
The surface has to be dust free and made rust free by means of sandblasting (Sa2, St2) or high pressure water jetting (min. 600 bars). After jetting, the substrate has to be dust free. Oil and grease should be removed using Polycote Degrease™ IT. The surface must be dry and dust-free before coating.
New galvanised surfaces require a primer. For old galvanised surfaces, plastisol sheeting and smooth concrete prime with 1 coat of Polydex™ Standard, thinned 15% with water, followed by 1 full coat.
On non-ferrous substrates, use Polydex Adhesion Primer as a primer coat first.
Polydex™ Standard may be applied by brush, roller, conventional spray gun or airless spray.
Brush, roller or conventional spray – apply 2 coats of undiluted product, allowing at least 6 hours between coats.
Airless spray – use nozzle size 11-13 and 220 bars pressure. Dilute product with maximum 3% of water. During work stoppage, immerse nozzle in water, empty and clean the tubes.
