**Complete cure (drying) of the coating can take up to several days, depending on the film thickness applied and the ambient drying conditions at the site. The coating should not be exposed to heavy surface condensation before it is completely dry as this can cause permanent surface marking.
Stir thoroughly before use. Do not apply to surfaces when the ambient temperature is below 8˚C. or if there is a risk of rain during application or drying. To obtain a good flow apply generously but avoiding runs and sags
Use a high-quality synthetic bristle brush that is suitably sized for the project at hand. New brushes should be conditioned by washing in clean water and thoroughly dried with a clean, lint-free, cloth. Avoid immersing brush too far into the paint to prevent paint from entering the ferrule. Avoid drips and splashes by not overloading the brush. Apply paint in even strokes and only extend painting area such that a wet edge can be easily maintained. For the highest-quality appearance, keep final brush strokes all in the same direction and never go over paint that has already begun to dry.
For intricate items, or where high ambient temperatures/high airflow conditions cannot be avoided, the open time may be extended with a 10 to 15% (v/v) addition of a propriety water-based paint conditioner. This advice is also applicable to large flat areas; however, the of a paint roller is the recommended application method in such cases.
