Note:When spraying, product may be overcoated when touch dry.
If maximum overcoating interval is exceeded the coating must be sanded with 320-400 grade paper prior to application of Perfection Plus.

In Good Condition: Wash down with Fiberglass Surface Prep YMA601 or wipe down with solvent Y2316N or YTA920. Abrade with 320-400 grade (grit) paper.
In Poor Condition: Remove all previous coatings and prime the substrate.

BARE WOOD: Wipe down surface with 2316N to remove any contaminants. Sand smooth with 120 grade paper, followed by 240 and finally 320 grade paper. Remove sanding dust by brushing, dusting and wiping. If wiping with solvent then allow to dry completely before applying the first coat. Any sanding residue remaining on the surface can impair the finish. Prime, if required, with Clear Wood Sealer YVA327.

If Clear Wood Sealer YVA327 has been omitted thin the first coat by 20-25% using recommended thinners.

OILY WOODS e.g. Teak: Must be adequately degreased and prepared prior to the application of Perfection Plus. Y2333N, Y2316N and YTA920 are suitable for degreasing purposes. Please ensure the surface is completely dry before applying the first coat.

Method It is recommended that sanding residue is removed prior to overcoating. The use of tack rags and Y2316N or YTA920 can help achieve the required level of cleanliness.

BARE WOOD: Thin the first coat by 25% using recommended thinner. Then apply a minimum of 4 full coats.

Alternatively apply minimum of 2 coats of Clear Wood Sealer YVA327 (first coat thinned by 25%). Then apply a minimum of 2 coats of Perfection Plus.

Apply 1 full coat of Perfection Plus if used as a Glazecoat over Perfection Finish. Except if used over white, off white or cream Perfection Finish, where Perfection Plus should be blended 50:50 by volume with Perfection Finish for the final coat.

Hints Mixing Stir individual products prior to mixing. Mix the base and curing agent of Perfection Plus together at the specified mix ratio. Add curing agent to the base, stir and leave for 10 minutes to allow bubbles to disperse. Avoid using direct from the can. Mix the amount you expect to use in a separate container. Note: Any initial cloudiness will disappear upon thorough mixing.
Thinner YTA920,Y2333N,Y2316N
Thinning Mix base and curing agent first and then thin as required. The choice of thinners will depend on the ambient temperature, the spray gun set up, application techniques and paint viscosity. As a general guide: 50F - 68F Y2316, 65F 83F YTA920, Y2316, >85F Blend Y2316 & Y2333N.
Conventional Spray Reduce viscosity to 14 seconds, DIN 4 cup, Zahn #2 or equivalent. Pressure: 3-4 bar/45-60 psi Tip Size: 1.0-1.4 mm. SPRAY APPLICATION - PROFESSIONAL APPLICATORS ONLY.
Roller Use foam rollers. For best results when applying by roller, smooth off with a pad or brush.
Other When applying Perfection Plus by brush or roller, it may be necessary to apply multiple coats to achieve the total specified system dry film thickness.
