20 Litre Containers
Flashpoint: Flammable - Flash point 32oC min
Coverage: As a paint/primer:
8m2/litre approx. on concrete
10m2/litre approx. on metal
As an adhesive for Malthoid: 5m2/litre approx.
Net Weight: 1Kg/litre approx.

All surfaces must be thoroughly clean, dry, sound and free from grease, oils, waxes and all loose materials. New galvanised iron must be allowed to weather for at least six months prior to application.
When used as a protective coating, use directly from the container with a brush, broom or spray (55kPa pressure in pot and 275kPa pressure at gun). When used as an adhesive for Malthoid, first loose lay Malthoid in position. Turn back the layer (approx. half way), paint the exposed metal with Bitumen Paint, then apply
a coating of Bitumen Paint to the underside of the Malthoid. Place the sheet in position again and rub out to remove air pockets. Repeat this operation with the
remainder of the sheet. To provide increased durability in external application, allow to dry for 14 days and apply a reflective paint, eg Tremco Alumicool, Tennis
Clean tools and equipment with mineral turps.
Store in sealed containers under cover at normal temperatures for 12 months. Containers must be kept sealed at all times when the material is not being used.
