  • Apply in temperatures above 45ºF 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.
