Surface preparation and thinners

Surface Preparation & Thinners

Our all purpose Thinner I is exceedingly useful for cleaning application equipment and metal surfaces prior to applying Nycote®.
Store at 70°F to 120°F (21°C to 48°C)

Thinner II is specifically designed to reduce cobwebbing when spraying Nycote® 7-11 and Nycote® 88. Nycote® Laboratories suggests mixing Thinner II with our products at a 25% to 50% ratio for spraying.

  • Carefully clean surface with Nyclean™ prior to Nycote® spraying application
  • Use latex or neoprene gloves when mixing Thinner II with Nycote®
  • Verify from the spray equipment manufacturer the correct solution mixture
  • In a separate container mix Thinner II with the Nycote® product being sprayed
  • Use low air pressure 10-20 p.s.i.
  • Spray the mixed solution to the equipment/surface needing to be protected
  • Keep Thinner II away from flames as vapors could be ignited
  • If flames occur, use water to cool exposed containers along with self contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing
  • May cause dizziness if used in confined area
  • Moderate exposure may result in sensitization of skin, giddiness and headache
  • Unconsciousness or death may occur in extreme cases
  • If skin is exposed flush with water
  • If swallowed, take two glasses of water but do not induce vomiting
  • If it gets in eyes, flush with water for 15 minutes
  • If spilled clean with rags and/or absorbent material
