Mark II for Metal


Use:

Mark II for Metal is available in the same 50 colors as Poly-Fiber Poly-Tone and Randolph Colored Butyrate Dope. Mark II is used over primed metal or composite parts and is too brittle to be used over fabric. Mark II is a tough, long-lasting topcoat paint. Although Mark II is a two-part catalyzed paint, it is not catalyzed with an isocyanate, thus normal safety equipment (a charcoal filtered spray mask) is sufficient. You do not have to use a supplied air respirator when spraying Mark II.

Packaging:

Mark II comes in two-part kits: part one is a can of the colored paint; part two is a separate can with an equal volume of Mixing Liquid. Mixing Liquid contains the catalyst and thinner. Kits are packaged in quarts and gallons. A gallon kit consists of one gallon of paint and one gallon of Mixing Liquid. A quart kit consists of one quart of paint and one quart of Mixing Liquid.

Coverage:

One mixed gallon kit (one gallon paint, one gallon Mixing Liquid) yields two gallons of sprayable paint. These two gallons will cover approximately 400 square feet with one coat.

Mixing:

Combine one part of paint with one volume Mixing Liquid. Let stand for 20 minutes to allow the catalyst to work.

Thinning:

For most conditions, try using it directly out of the can with no thinning. If orange peel results, thin 5 parts mixed paint to one part Mark II Thinner.

Application:

Spray two or three coats one hour apart. Two coats may be sufficient. Allow overnight drying before moving parts. Mark II takes longer to dry than one-part paints. It may be slightly tacky for 24 hours.

Shelf Life:

Four years in unopened storage.
