Notes

Instructions
 
Preparation: Remove all contaminants from the surface including grease, oil, etc. DO NOT use a solvent based chlorinated degreaser or those that contain kerosene, as these will leave a film that may hinder bonding. If the surface contains rust, use a wire brush to remove loose particles. For bare or sandblasted metal, use 3X Metal Etch to prep the surface for painting. It is imperative that all surfaces be allowed to dry thoroughly. Encapsulator will adhere best to rough surfaces rather than smooth, glossy surfaces.

Mixing & Handling: DO NOT SHAKE. Stir Encapsulator gently and thoroughly. When opening, keep groves of original can clean of paint, or the can will seal permanently upon closing. Scoop only enough material from original container for use in one application. Before sealing, gently pour in just enough Reducer to cover surface of the paint in original can. DO NOT mix this solvent into the Encapsulator. Let it remain on top until you are ready to use the product again. This will help prevent air from contacting the paint which will cause premature spoilage. Seal Immediately.

IMPORTANT: NEVER RETURN ANY UNUSED PORTION OF MATERIAL TO ORIGINAL CONTAINER. Refrigeration of unused portion will help extend shelf life.

Application

Brushing: Apply unreduced in thin, even coats using a disposable nylon brush. Heavy coats will inhibit the curing process and may cause bubbling. Fully cured in 48 to 72 hours based on environmental conditions. Spraying: If needed, thin up to 10% with Reducer. Use a spray tip between .013 – .017" with a pressure of 6–7 psi for HVLP guns; or 30-35 psi for conventional guns. Spray two medium wet coats, allowing 3 to 6 hours between coats. The second coat should be applied when the first coat seems hand slick but with a slight drag or tack to the surface. Fully cured in 48 to 72 hours depending on environmental conditions. Note: DO NOT apply Encapsulator if surface and air temperature is less than 50°F.

Clean-up: Clean tools and spray equipment immediately after with Reducer or Lacquer Thinner.

Top Coating/Priming: Once fully cured, Encapsulator may be wet sanded with 600 grit until finish is dull. Encapsulator can then be top coated with any high quality, automotive finish.
