If seven days is exceeded, mechanical abrading of the Firetex surface is required to ensure proper adhesion. Galvanised surfaces must be prepared according to SSPC SP-16 with a minimum surface profile of 1.0 mils followed by priming with Macropoxy 646 series at 2-5mils (50-125 microns) DFT. Surface must be clean, dry and in sound condition. Remove all oil, dust, grease, dirt, loose rust and other foreign material to ensure adequate adhesion. Refer to data sheets prior to use. Clean up can be done using Sherwin Williams Thinner No9
