These types of surfacesrequire removal of the loose or weaksurface features until the surface is sound.Careful surface preparation and cleaning isthe key to a good result. Be sure thesurface is thoroughly clean and dry, freefrom all grease, wax, oil, loose paint anddirt or rust. The first step is to clean with astrong detergent (soap and water), rinsewell and allow to dry. Power washing isrecommended to clean chalky surfaces.

Surface Prep:Careful surface preparation and cleaning is the key to a good result. Be sure the surfaceis thoroughly clean and dry, free from all grease, wax, oil, loose paint and dirt or rust.Power wash the surface to remove loose paint and debris.Or . . scrape / sand looseedges to ensure that thesurface is sound.NOTE: Remove the remaining debris and dust from sanding and scraping. Allow to dryafter power washing. Measure with a Moisture Meter – wait until the moisture is below15% to prime with Peel Bond. This way, the Peel Bond can penetrate the dry wood fiber.Power Washall loosepaint and debris.
If your objective is to only prime and seal the surface, apply one full coat. If yourobjective is to build and fill, apply multiple full coats. Allow the Peel Bond to turn clearbefore each coat.It can be top coated within 40 minutes with Latex Paints.
How to Apply :P eel Bond can be applied by spray, brushingor rolling. NOTE: It does not look or feel liketraditional “thinner viscosity” paints.When Brushing or rolling, apply straight from thecontainer. Peel Bond can be applied heavily. It willbuild and fill low areas. Even though High-Build, itwill still wet-out the surface and flow well.Peel Bond appears white and hazyinitially. It dries to tack free inabout 30 minutes under standardconditions (77 deg. F and 50%relative humidity) Thicker coatswill take longer to dry.Peel Bond will dry to a clearappearance. When clear, it is readyto re-coat or paint.
When Spraying:Spray with airless equipment without thinning.We recommend a 0.017 tip and 1200 PSI.Use as a Penetrating Sealer -Apply at 5-10 mils wet. Peel Bond will appearhazy, white when first applied. It will penetrateinto the wood or into a porous surface and bond.Use as a High Build Filling primer –Apply as high as 20 mils wet. Spray multiplecoats as required. Allow the Peel Bond to turnclear before each coat. As shown previously,the cooler the temperature – the longer thiswill take.Do Not Spray orapply heavier than20 mils wet !Although Peel Bond can be applied heavier than 20 milswet, excess thickness can result in MUD CRACKINGand BUBBLES in the film.Too thick and you could see sagging as well!Back-Brushing or Back-Rolling after sprayingheavy coats can help “work” the Peel Bond intorecessed and low areas.
