Preparation and Application

Surface Preparation
Surfaces must be dry, free of dirt, loose debris, oils, grease or any substance that could interfere with adhesion. Do not apply if the substrate or air temperature is predicted to drop below 35°F (2°C) within 4 hours after application. The application surface must remain at least 5°F (3°C) above dew point during the application and curing process.

Application
AIM #3 may be applied straight from the container after 2 minutes of low speed mechanical stirring. Apply the product using brush, roller, or airless spray technique

Spray Application
If airless spray application is desired, a custom blended AIM #3 version is available to be used with the following equipment: ratio 30:1 or 40:1 with a ½” or ¾” hose and a #35 or larger tip. A shorter hose will increase output at the tip. Apply AIM #3 in a smooth, even fashion to achieve a uniform coating thickness in either 1 or 2 coats.

Recommended Thickness
20 mils Dry Film Thickness (DFT)

Drying Time
Approximately 3 hours at 70°F (21°C) and 70% RH.

Clean up
Clean tools and equipment with xylene or toluene solvent

Storage
Store in a dry area and protect from direct sunlight and freezing. Keep container tightly sealed. Shelf life is 1 years from date of manufacture when stored in a factory sealed container between 40ºF (5ºC) and 90ºF (32ºC).

Disposal
Waste disposal must be in accordance with existing federal, state and local environmental control laws. Incineration is the preferred method of disposal.

Read the container label warning and Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for important health and safety information prior to the use of this product.
