Product Installation

R.I.P.™  is ready to use or can be thinned (water, no more than 5%).
  • Apply by brush or roller, or airless sprayer.
  • All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free of dirt, grease, oil, or other contaminants that would interfere with proper adhesion.
  • Apply in temperatures above 45 ºF and where the surface temperature is more than 5ºF above the dew point.
  • Cool temperatures and high humidity can affect dry and cure time.
  • When the surface temperature is low and the air temperature is high, adhere strictly to application thickness of no more than 3 dry mils (to prevent surface skinning and possible blistering).
  • Follow manufacturer's application guidelines.
  • Easy to use and clean up is with water.
COVERAGE: R.I.P. may be brushed, rolled or spray applied. The coverage varies depending on porosity, mil thickness, and texture of the surface being encased. A recommended thickness of 2-3 mils is for properly prepared light rust, and 4-6 mils is for properly prepared heavy rust.
The calculated coverage rate on a flat surface is: 3 mil @ 192 s.f. / Gallon.
Spray Application: Use self-cleaning reversible spray tip Size .017-.021.
Brush: Use any nylon bristle brushes.
