Product Description:XIM 900
Clear Coat is an ultrapremium, solvent–based, onecomponent, acrylic
modified alkyd coating which offers excellent protection to surfaces
both indoors and out. Formulated tough enough for industrial use, it
is truly crystal clear, and unlike some clear coatings will not yellow
with time. 900 Clear Coat is an ideal protective coating for industrial
maintenance or residential applications. It prevents oxidation on aluminum,
siding, sashes and doors; on decorative copper and brass; and it can
be used for marine applications protecting brass and chrome on boat
accessories above the water line. 900 Clear Coat is also used to protect
and maintain commercial signs, handrails, nameplates, etc. Its use on
iron or steel is restricted to interior use only. For exterior clear
coat protection on iron and steel use XIM’s 903 Super Clear Coat.
Surface Preparation: Careful
surface preparation and cleaning is essential to a good result. Be sure
the surface is thoroughly clean and dry, free from all grease, wax,
oil, polish, loose paint and dirt or rust. Clean with a strong abrasive
detergent, rinse well and dry. When coating metals, we recommend solvent
wiping with XIM GON Cleaner or xylene to remove oily contamination.
Rough surfaces should be sanded smooth. Moldy or mildewed surfaces should
be scrubbed with a mixture of one quart of household bleach and three
quarts of water and then thoroughly rinsed with clean water. (Never
mix bleach with detergents - particularly detergents containing ammonia.)
How to Apply: Use brush or spray. The temperature of
the surface and the surrounding air should be between 50 deg. F and
100 deg. F. It dries to touch in about 2 hours under standard conditions
(77 deg. F and 50% relative humidity). Thicker coats will take longer
to dry. A second coat can be applied 20 minutes after the first coat
(what is called wet-on-wet application), if desired. If not applied
within this period, the first coat may wrinkle. Can apply 2nd coat after
full cure (7 – 14 days depending on temperature, humidity and
film thickness). When applying, bubbles can be entrapped in the film
and may not break before the film cures. If bubbles occur when spraying,
adjust the air pressure and nozzle to eliminate. Bubbles can form when
the application is brushing. Brush out bubbles. One gallon will cover
about 450-600 square feet on a non porous surface. When protecting decorative
copper and brass, clean the metal using XIM’s Copper DOC Cleaner.
Lock in the bright appearance with Copper DOC Treatment then use Copper
DOC Clear Coat (Acrylic Lacquer) or XIM 900 Clear Coat (Acrylic Alkyd).
Note: XIM 900 does not provide UV protection for wood and is, therefore,
not intended or recommended as an exterior wood finish.
Clean-Up: Clean equipment with
xylene or lacquer thinner immediately after applying.
