SURFACE PREPARATION:

Concrete Flooring:
Remove oil and grease by detergent cleaning. For smooth surfaces, acid etch to improve adhesion. Do this by mixing one (1) part muriatic acid to one (1) part water. Apply over masonry and let stand for 2-3 minutes. Rinse with water to remove residual acid. If possible, rinse by pressure washing.

Finished acid etched surface should have a texture similar to that of 40-60 grit sandpaper. Make sure that the surfaces to be painted are clean and dry.

Caution: Adequate protection and ventilation should be provided when working with acids.

Metal:
Be sure to wash off surface thoroughly with water. Wipe off surface with rag soaked in paint thinner to remove dust, dirt, grease, oil, wax and other foreign matter. For new G.I. sheets, etch the surface by applying 10% BOYSEN® Metal Etching Solution #71 (dilute 1 part of B-71 to 9 parts water).
If repainting on surfaces with alkyd, latex or lacquer-based coatings, scrape off all paint film to bare substrate. Remove oil and grease by detergent cleaning followed by scuff sanding. To remove rust, wire brush or scrape affected areas and apply BOYSEN® Metal Etching Solution #71 over rusted portions. Let it stay for 10-15 minutes. Be sure to wash off surface thoroughly with water, letting it dry before applying paint. Primer should be applied immediately upon drying of the surface before rust sets in.

PAINTING SCHEDULE:

Concrete Flooring:
Mix three (3) parts of BOYSEN® Epoxy Primer White #2200 to one (1) part of its catalyst.
Allow twenty (20) minutes induction time. Thin 1:1 with BOYSEN® Epoxy Reducer #55. Apply as primer coating on bare concrete. Let dry overnight.
Mix four (4) parts of BOYSEN® Acqua Epoxy to one (1) part of its catalyst. Allow twenty (20) minutes induction time. Mixture may gel if not used within 24 hours. Apply three (3) coats as topcoat, allowing for at least 4 hours between coats. For best results, recoating should be done overnight.

Metal:
Prime bare metal with BOYSEN® Epoxy Red Oxide Primer #2277 or BOYSEN® Epoxy Primer Gray #2230. Let dry eight (8) hours before recoating. Alternatively, BOYSEN® Primeguard™ #4310 can be used. Apply a single coat and let dry for 2-4 hours before recoating. Finish with 2-3 coats of BOYSEN® Acqua Epoxy™ #2900.  Let dry four (4) hours before recoating.

NOTE:
Foot traffic abrasion resistance fully develops after three (3) days of curing. For heavy-duty application, allow seven (7) days of drying.
