How to Use Rust-Oleum Tub and Tile Epoxy Paint?
Approproate Conditions to Use
Use when temperature is between 50-90ºF (10-32ºC) and humidity is below 85% to ensure proper drying. Properly ventilate the area by opening windows or using fans.
Remove metal drains and hardware. Remove loose paint and rust with a wire brush or sandpaper. Repair chips and cracks with a patching compound similar to Liquid Steel. Remove any mildew with a solution of bleach and water and rinse thoroughly. Scrub dirty or stained surfaces with an abrasive cleaner like Comet. Rinse with fresh water and allow to thoroughly dry. Remove all caulk. Wipe area clean. Prepare surface with an abrasive pad and Lime-AWay, rinse and repeat if necessary. Sand entire surface with #400/#600 grit wet/dry sandpaper. Vacuum or rinse away any residue. Wipe surface with a tack cloth immediately before painting to remove dust.
Application of Paint
Thoroughly mix Part B to ensure any settled pigment is redispersed. Add Part A to Part B and mix thoroughly for 1 minute. Thin no more than 10% (3 ounces per 1-quart) with 100% isopropyl alcohol (not rubbing alcohol), acetone or xylene. If less than a full (1 quart) kit is needed, mix in a 4:1 ratio of base to activator in a separate container. Apply within 6 hours of mixing.
Brush: Use a fine quality, fine bristle varnish brush. Brush in one direction only for a smooth surface and feather the edges as you paint to avoid a hard line between painted areas. Avoid excessive brushing to ensure an even coat and smooth finish. Apply two coats, waiting at least 1 hour between coats. If necessary, a third coat may be applied the next day with a second kit.
Roller: Use a high quality, ¼” short nap roller made for kitchen or bath use. Apply two coats, waiting at least 1 hour between coats. Avoid excessive brushing to ensure an even coat and smooth finish. If necessary, a third coat may be applied the next day with a second kit. If desired, conventional HVLP or airless sprayer may also be used.
