Aluminum Acrylic Coating
Description: Fast drying, thin film, economical
aluminum coating. Provides tight barrier protection to
properly prepared steel surfaces, as well as very
good heat deflection properties. Acrylic formulation
provides exceptional drying times. A good choice for
storage tanks & vessels located outside in direct

SUBSTRATE & SURFACE PREPATION
Steel surfaces: Must be clean and dry. Prepared to a
minimum SSPC-SP1 Solvent cleaning to remove oil,
grease, dirt and other contaminants. Loose rust and
mill scale must be removed either by abrasive
blasting or hand/power tool cleaning. Maximum
performance will be achieved with a 1.0-2.0 mil blast
Galvanized Steel: Not recommended unless used
over a primer suitable for galvanized steel.
Previously painted surfaces: apply a test patch to
check compatibility with existing coating.
Primer: Alkyds, Epoxies, Zincs. Always first check
compatibility. A mist coat over Inorganic Zinc may be
needed to minimize bubbling.

MIXING & THINNING
Mixing: Power mix to uniform color & consistency
•Spray- Up to 12 oz/gal with HJ105
•Brush & Roll- Up to 12oz/gal with HJ-52
Pre-application: Flush all equipment with thinner
Temperature: Application range from 60F-100F
surface temperature. Do not apply below 50F.
Method: Apply one coat maintaining a wet edge to
achieve a DFT of 2-3 Mils. Multiple passes are
recommended to achieve proper DFT.
Inspection: Visually inspect for voids in coating
film. A second coat in contrasting color is
recommended for adequate hiding.
Clean up & Disposal: After use, immediately flush
all equipment with thinner HJ105. Dispose of all
containers, solvents, and unused material in
accordance with local, state
Times based on 75F
Dry to touch: Min
Dry to recoat: Min
Final cure: 24 hrs
Dry times are widely affected by weather
conditions and film thicknesses.
