    It should be sprayed, brushed or rolled on. Overnight should work well for curing.

    It does not come with a thinner. If you wanted one you would have to order it separately. Please call our technical department at 800-445-1754 for your specific application questions.

    Surface preparation is essential for good adhesion.  Prepare the surface to be coated by removing, dirt, grease and coatings.  Roughening the surface by sanding, sandblasting or acid etching (hydrofluoric acid for tile and ceramics) is recommended.
