Application Tips

 

If in doubt please call 01892 871 638

The curing time for koi-kote clear is 30 mins Koi-Kote Application tips (Clear)
Typical working life - once the two parts are mixed together you will have a maximum of 30 minutes to use the product (at
10 -15 °C).

Koi-Kote is a chemically cured coating and its working life decreases the warmer the temperature (and vice versa), it is therefore advisable to keep it out of direct sunlight and use as quickly as possible.

In bulk the material generates heat so putting it into a paint tray for roller application will increase its longevity.

Over mixing will also introduce unnecessary heat and thus reduce the workable life of the material.

Recommended application tools are available from us (see price list).

Once mixed, divide the material into two or more containers and get some help to put it on.

DO NOT SPLIT PACKS OR TRY TO THIN THE MATERIAL as this will result in the coating being insufficiently cured.

Koi-Kote is a high specification solvent free epoxy coating, which is also used in drinking water storage tanks, it is not a simple paint and thus you will need to assess your particular project before mixing any product.

Preparation between coats - If you are to exceed more than 72 hours between coats (at 10°C), it is recommended that you lightly abrade the previous coat using a 40 grit sandpaper.
This will ensure that, as well as providing a key for the next coat, it will also remove insects that may have landed and any other high spots.

It is good practice, however that if the coating is hard enough to lightly abrade, then this will ensure the best possible surface for the final coat to be applied to.
