FUTURA AQUA 3 is suitable as an adhesion primer for wooden surfaces indoors and outdoors as well as for zinc coated, galvanized and previously painted metal surfaces indoors. Before use stir the paint thoroughly. The paint is thinned with water 5 – 15 % by volume when needed. Apply the paint once or twice with a varnish brush, mohair roller, painting pad or spray. When painting a smooth surface, e.g. flush door, the marks left by a roller may be smoothed down with painting pad or with varnish brush. Airless spray nozzle 0.011 – 0.013″.
The surface to be painted must be dry. During the application and drying period the temperature of the ambient air, the surface and the paint shall be above +10 °C and the relative air humidity below 80 %. Drying is faster in low air humidity and/or above + 21 °C. Application will be easier if air is humidified and/or temperature is lowered in the working space. Ventilation after the painting will quicken the drying.
Must not freeze.
