Multiple Coats

Second and subsequent coats must be applied before the previous coat has completely cross-linked. If additional coats are needed after re-coat window, brush blast before applying the next coat. Small areas may be abraded by sanding or wire brushing.

The same requirement applies when overlapping the seams of adjacent coating sections to create a continuous protective film. If the coating surface to be overlapped at the seam cannot be brush blasted, use a non-impact means as power brushing or sanding to create a mechanical profile.

Packaging

Quadex Structure Guard is available in 5 gallon pales and 55 gallon drums.

Yield

Quadex Structure Guard will yield an approximate theoretical coverage of 12.5 sq. ft per gallon @125 mils thickness.
