A high performance, 100% acrylic latex corrosion resistant coating for ferrous metal,
galvanized metal or aluminum. Lead, mercury and chromate free. Low VOC
For industrial, commercial and residential use on machinery, piping, structural steel,
storage tank exteriors and plant equipment. For use on properly prepared steel,
galvanized metal and aluminum. May also be used on concrete, masonry and wood
ACRYLIC DTM Rust Resistant Coating offers excellent protection in
exposures including mild industrial and marine environments. Excellent gloss retention,
adhesion, flexibility, blister resistance and mild chemical resistance. Easy to apply, fast
drying and low odor. May be applied over many previous finishes such as latex, alkyd or
epoxy. Lead, mercury and chromate free. Low VOC.

Limitations: Apply in good weather when air and surface
temperature are above 50°F and surface temperature is at
least 5°F above the dew point. For optimum application
properties, material should be between 70 to 100°F prior to
mixing and application. Maintain unmixed material in closed
containers in protected storage at 40 - 100°F. Do not apply
to uncured wood or masonry. May be applied to damp but
not wet surfaces. Do not apply in direct sun or on hot
New or Unfinished Surfaces: Ferrous metal: For best
performance, application to abrasive blasted surface is
recommended. “Commercial Blast Cleaning” (SSPC-SP6)
is recommended as the minimum for blast cleaning. Proper
blast media and blasting equipment shall be used to produce
an average profile depth of 1.5 mils minimum. Do not
reuse abrasive media. Remove blasting dust and grit from
surfaces before painting. Blasted surfaces should be
coated within 8 hours after blasting or before rusting or other
contamination of the surface occurs. If blasting is not
possible, use “Hand or Power Tool Cleaning: (SSPC-SP2 or
-SP3). Prime with Primer. Galvanized
metal: Remove oil with mineral spirits. Aluminum: Etching
with a phosphoric acid pretreatment solution is recommended
for maximum adhesion. Clean all contamination by
scrubbing with a mixture of household detergent and water
or other effective means. Rinse clean with water and allow
Previously Painted Surfaces: Repair all damaged areas.
Remove gloss from previous paint by sanding or “Brush
Blasting” (SSPC-SP7) Remove rust, corrosion products,
heavy chalk and loose or peeling paint by “Hand or Power
Tool Cleaning” (SSPC-SP2 or -SP3). Spot prime any bare
areas as required. If doubt exists concerning compatibility
of this coating with the previous system, apply coating to a
representative area (25 square feet minimum) and allow to
cure and age several weeks. Then inspect for adhesion
failure, wrinkling, lifting, blistering or any other sign of
incompatibility. If there are no signs, coating work can
Tinting: Color Studio Tint Bases provide hundreds of color
possibilities and should be used only after the addition of the
proper amount of COLOR STUDIO colorant. These Tint
Bases may be short filled to allow for the addition of
colorant.Actual coverage will depend on the amount of
colorant added and should be taken into consideration
Some colors may require more than one coat for complete
hiding. NOTE: Tinted colors require a prime coat of H2O
Primer over ferrous metal for maximum durability
and corrosion protection.
Mixing: This is a one component coating. Always mix
thoroughly with a power agitator before application.
Thinning: This product is supplied at normal brushing
viscosity. If thinning is necessary, thin up to 1/2 pint per
gallon with water. Caution: Excessive thinning may cause
flash rusting on ferrous metal surfaces.
Application: Apply by brush, roller or conventional or
airless spray. Roller application may require special care to
prevent bubbling and more than one coat to obtain proper
film thickness. Apply at 5.4 mils wet film thickness which will
yield 2.0 mils dry film thickness.
Equipment: Brush - Use a good quality nylon brush. Roller
- All purpose, good quality roller with 3/8" nap maximum.
Conventional spray .. Airless Spray - Minimum of 28:1
ratio pump, .013"-.015" orifice tip, 1/4" ID material hose.
Cleanup: Clean all equipment immediately after use with
warm, soapy water. Completely flush all spray equipment
with this solution. Occasional flushing of spray equipment
during the course of the working day helps prevent buildup
and possible clogging. Final flushing of spray equipment
with mineral spirits will prevent corrosion.
Safety: Safe storage, handling and use dictate that adequate
health and safety precautions be observed with this
product and any recommended thinners. User is specifically
directed to consult the current Material Safety Data Sheet
for this product as well as precautions contained on product
