How to Apply Automotive Sandable Primer Paint
Suitable Enviornmental Conditions
Use outdoors or in a well ventilated area such as an open garage. Use when temperature is between 50°F and 90°F (10-32°C) and humidity is below 85% to ensure proper drying. Do not apply to surfaces, when heated, exceed 200°F (93°C) such as mufflers and exhaust components.
Make The Surface Suitable
Clean the surface with a mild ammonia based cleaner and warm water. Rinse and then dry with a clean lint-free cloth. Remove loose paint, dirt and rust with a wire brush or sandpaper. Wipe the entire area with Rust-Oleum Wax & Tar Remover and a clean lint-free cloth to remove any dirt, grease, wax etc. Scuff-sand and feather edge the entire surface with 1,000 grit sandpaper, Scotch Brite pad or equivalent. Use a tack cloth to remove any sanding dust or particles. Mask surrounding areas to protect from overspray.
Mix thoroughly to ensure any settled pigment is redispersed. Strain Sandable Primer with a fine screen before pouring it into the spray gun cup. Set conventional spray gun pressure to 30-40 psi. Apply 2-3 coats allowing 5-10 minutes of dry time between coats. For best results allow Primer to dry for 1 hour before dry sanding. Test in an inconspicuous area to be sure Primer is dry enough for sanding. Block sand the area using 320-400 grit sandpaper. Do not use near open flame.
