Technical Informations

SURFACE PREPARATION: All surfaces must be completely dry and free of loose rust, loose paint, visible moisture, dirt, mildew, oil, wax, chlorides, and any other contaminants that may affect adhesion or performance prior to applying NOVA SHINE. Remove loose rust, paint and mil scale by hammering, scraping, sanding or wire brushing. Surfaces with firmly bonded paint should be roughed up with 60-80 grit sandpaper to ensure there is no shine left. For dry and firmly bonded light to medium surface rust, RUST BASE is the preferred primer, before applying NOVA SHINE.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS: Do not shake the container. Stir thoroughly, until a uniform color. Use outdoors or in a well-ventilated area. Ideal application temperature is between 50F (10C) and 90F (32C); humidity below 90% to ensure proper drying. Do not apply to surfaces that exceed 150F (65C). NOVA SHINE may be applied by brush, roller, or spray equipment. Test a small area for proper adhesion. NOVA SHINE performs the best when applied as a topcoat over RUST BASE. A minimum of 1 coats of NOVA SHINE must be applied to achieve a minimum dft (dry film thickness) of 2.5 mils. A primer of RUST BASE is recommended for heavy industrial or marine use. Typical areas where stripe coats must be applied include welds, corners, edges and heavily pitted areas. Average drying time is 1 hour to touch at 75F, 50% RH. Overcoat is within the first 6 hours or after 72 hours. NOVA SHINE cures faster on hot days and slower on a cold days. Note: The above drying times are only estimates. Actual drying times can vary significantly based on relative humidity, dry film thickness, wind, direct sunlight, temperature, and other factors. Previous coats of NOVA SHINE should be dry to the touch with no transfer of coating to a gloved finger if applying additional coats of NOVA SHINE. For optimum inter-coat adhesion apply NOVA SHINE over RUST BASE on the same day. If more than 24 hours have passed after applying Rust Base, then rough up the surface with 60-80 grit before applying NOVA SHINE. NOVA SHINE comes in a variety of standard and safety colors. The standard color is white, high gloss. A small surface area should be tested for adhesion and compatibility. This product is not designed for Indefinite submersion. Remember to limit the time the container is left open. Only pour what you need and then close the container to minimize air entry and avoid skinning.

CLEAN UP: Remove any uncured coating by wiping a surface with solvent. Follow solvent manufacturer’s directions. Freshly cured product is removed with sandpaper or wire brush. NOVA SHINE is a permanent coating and once fully cured cannot be removed without abrasive action. Gloves and safety glasses are always required during set up, application, and clean up. If spraying, keep solvent ready to clean equipment before any brake and conclusion of job. Do not leave NOVA SHINE in the hose or sprayer.
