POR-15 Top Coat DTM paint is a direct-to-metal coating designed to work on prepped bare metal and work incredibly well in all applications where there is a need to help preserve substrates susceptible to corrosion. POR-15 Top Coat safety colors comply with OSHA required/recommended color codes for marking physical hazards and designating caution, to include protective equipment. Under exterior exposure POR-15 Top Coat has exceptional long-term sheen and color retention. POR-15 Top Coat can be applied directly to metal substrates or previously painted surfaces, with no need for a primer or undercoat, and is formulated to form a robust barrier that sheds moisture to provide long-lasting protection. POR-15 Top Coat provides excellent adhesion and when used over POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating, works to provide a permanent barrier to corrosion.

Instructions

Surface Preparation: 

All surfaces must be clean and free of all dirt, loose rust, oil, grease, wax, soap, loose paint and any other matter. 

Previously Painted Areas: Scuff surface with 320 grit sand paper. Use POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser and POR-15 Metal Prep. Let surface dry thoroughly. 

Bare Steel or Aluminum: Clean and prep surface then let dry thoroughly. For ultimate protection apply POR-15 RustPreventive Coating after surface preparation and then apply POR-15 Top Coat.

Application: 

Stir POR-15 Top Coat before and during use, DO NOT SHAKE. Using a pouring spout, dispense a portion into a separate container and seal can at once, keeping lid and grooves clean. Do not paint out of can. Apply POR-15 Top Coat in two thin covering coats. Spray: Use 25-30 lbs (170Kpa-210pa) pressure for normal gloss.

Roller: Use all-purpose short nap phenolic core roller.

Dry time: 

It cures to touch in 30-60 minutes. Second coat can be applied in 2-72 hours, depending on ambient temperature and humidity. POR-15 Top Coat can take 3-4 days to reach maximum hardness, and longer in temperatures below 55°F (15°C).

Cleanup: 

Do not put leftover paint back into can. Clean all equipment immediately after use with POR-15 Solvent. Flush out all fluid lines and carefully clean pressure pots. Use clean solvent only. It is also good practice to periodically clean the spray tip or the fluid tip / air cap combination during the course of the working day.
