Surface Preparation and Application.
Surfaces need to be clean, dry and free from any contamination that may affect the adhesion of the Dry fix Primer.
Rotten timber needs to be cut away to sound fresh woodwork.
Check the moisture content of the surface (maximum 18%).
Ensure that all decayed or excessively soft wood, and weathered, damaged or burnt wood is completely removed until a sound wood substrate is achieved.
All surfaces must be free of dust, dirt, grease, raised wood fibres and general surface contamination.
Remove any paint coatings from the surfaces to be treated and sand back to bare wood.
On all applications, pre-treat the affected area with DRY FIX Uni Primer removing any excess which has not penetrated into the wood with absorbent paper.
Sand the cured surface before paint is applied.
Practical Recommendations and Useful Hints
Mix the components A and B until the mixture has a homogeneous / even colour.
Avoid exposing the mixed products to direct sunlight.
Spread the mixed DRY FLEX 16 in a thin layer over the mixing plate.
When modelling corners and large repairs, the use of Perspex acrylic strips is very effective.
DRY FLEX can be coloured by adding a very small quantity of concentrated pigment.
Repaired and exposed areas of timber should be painted or stained within one week.
