Awlgrip is a three-part paint system that requires a converter and a reducer


Spray:
Mix by volume one part 545 Base with one part D3001 Converter to a smooth homogenous mixture. When applying by conventional spray, reduce up to 25% with T0006. Overall mix is 1:1:1⁄2 by volume.  Example: 8 oz. 545 Base, 8 oz. D3001, 4 oz. T0006. When applying by airless spray reduce up to 5% with T0006.
Brush/Roll:
Mix by volume one part 545 Base with one part D3001 Converter to a smooth homogenous mixture; reduce 5-10% with T0031. Below 77°F (25°C) you may use Cold-Cure Accelerator M3066 to maintain dry and cure times.

Aluminum: Sandblast/Grind to 100% clean silver color or treat with ALUMIPREP® 33/ALODINE® 1201.

Steel Sandblast/Grind SSPC-SP5-85.

Gelcoat/Fiberglass: Sand with 100-150 grit paper. Wood: Smooth sand with 80-100 grit paper.

Brush or Roller Application:
Apply 2 coats at 3-4 mils WFT yielding 1.0-1.5 DFT per coat. Allow 12-14 hours between coats. Light sanding between coats will improve appearance. For large surfaces rolling, then tipping with a brush is preferred.

Do not apply paint materials to surfaces warmer than 105°F or colder than 55°F. Do not attempt to cure products at temperatures below 55°F.
