AFM Safecoat Ecolacq Sandable Primer
Safecoat EcoLacq Sandable Primer is an ideal primer for the Ecolacq furniture/cabinetry finish. Its very low odor and VOC content has allowed it to be used even in the homes of the chemically sensitive. It is ideal for cabinets, furniture and woodwork.
USE ON: Unfinished (or properly prepared and sanded previously finished) wooden cabinetry, doors, paneling, furniture, and wood railings.
COVERAGE: one gallon will typically cover approx 350 square feet.
Clean surfaces of dirt, grease, mildew and oil. Surfaces painted with oil based coatings should be sanded to promote adhesion (all gloss must be removed). Wet sanding is recommended. Surface should be completely dry before application. Always spot test for adhesion over prior coatings.
Always have adequate ventilation. Before using, gently stir or roll container to avoid air bubbles. Be sure to stir product thoroughly every 20 minutes during application. Pour material to be used into another container before applying coating to avoid contaminating the main container. Then apply using a quality nylon brush, pad applicator, or unheated spray applicator.
Apply even coats, keeping a good wet edge and avoid overbrushing. When spraying, use a .015 tip or smaller. Apply thin even coats when spraying rather than heavy coats which will tend to sag. If spray pattern begins to dryspray, reduce air pressure and in-
crease material flow to surface. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND TESTING WITH YOUR SPRAY EQUIPMENT TO GET A COMFORTABLE, REPEATABLE SET-UP.
Use aluminum oxide or silicon carbide sandpaper to sand between coats.
For best results, this product should not be reduced.
