Door Restore Expressis a “self healing” type of coating which means the coating “melts” itself. Runs, drips, and sags can be removed using a soft cloth saturated with acetone. Repairs can then easily be done with a brush or a spray can. Future coats can be applied right on top after a simple cleaning, no need for extensive surface preparation.
DO NOT USE strong solvents such as lacquer thinner or acetone to clean doors treated Door Restore Express as it can damage the surface. If surface damage does occur just touch up with a brush or a spray can.
Safety & Handling:Before using this and all other products read and follow all labels, MDS, MSDS, and technical data sheets. When handling or applying this or any industrial coating or cleaner always wear chemical resistant gloves, goggles, and a properly fitted OSHA approved respirator that employs chemical cartridges. If mixed with other components, mixture will have hazards of all components.
Use only with adequate ventilation! Keep out of reach of children!
Surface Preparation:Remove all dust, dirt, grime, and chalk using a high alkaline/high PH cleaner and degreaser such as ZEP industrial purple degreaser used full strength. (PH neutral cleaners such as “Simple Green” do not break down the chalk and require substantially more physical scrubbing). Apply the high PH cleaner liberally then aggressively scrub the surface with an RV brush and/or abrasive pads. Apply more cleaner or water if it starts to dry while scrubbing. Then thoroughly rinse. Avoid letting the cleaning solution dry on the surface prior to rinsing. Inspect after dry to make sure all chalk has been removed. Hand clean with an abrasive pad any remaining embedded chalk and wipe the surface dust free.
Touch-up any scratches or other damage with “Endura-Clad touch-up paint.
Reduction and Clean-Up: Reduction is normally not required but can be reduced with acetone as needed. Clean drips, spills, and equipment with acetone.
Conditions: Apply when surface and air temperature is between 60°F and 100° F. Do not apply when there is a risk of rain or if the atmospheric temperature is with 5°F of the dew point. Avoid applying in direct sunlight when the atmospheric temperature is above 80° F.
Application: Door Restore Express is designed to by applied in 2 to 3 thin coats. Recommended equipment is a handheld HVLP cup gun such as a Wagner “control stainer 350” -or- a gravity fed HVLP sprayer -or- an air assisted airless. Make sure the sprayer you select is compatible with acetone and other strong solvents.
Standard airless equipment can also be used but may be harder to control the volume increasing the risk of runs and sags. If using airless equipment use small fine finish tips and utilize as minimal amount of pressure as possible.
For best results apply in multiple thin coats. At least two coats are required and for longer durability a 3rd coat is recommended.
Dry Time: 5 - 15 minutes to touch and recoat, 30-45 to handle.
