Wood: Remove all failed putty, Check the moisture content of the wood (maximum 18%) and Repair any decayed or damaged timber.
All surfaces must be free of dust, dirt, moisture, grease, oil and surface contamination. Where paint has been removed, ensure that there is no presence of burnt wood or raised fibres. Thoroughly sand back to bare shiny wood and retreat with a primer. Allow the primer to dry.
Metal: Remove all failed putty, ensure substrate is free of oxidation (eg: rust) and any surface contamination. Pre-treat any surfaces with a corrosion resistant quick drying primer.
Practical Recommendations and useful tips:
- Never finish DRY SEAL with water or detergent.
- Curing is slightly slower at a low relative air humidity (<30%).
- If painting DRY SEAL do so within a month of application. If painting at a later date, lightly sand to create a key
- Any traces of DRY SEAL on glass can be easily removed after a few hours or preferably the next day.
- If the surface is soft or unstable, carry out a test application first.
