HDP Water-Repellent Coating is used to coat acrylic based textured finishes, masonry, stucco, wood, or primed metal.
Drying Time: Drying time of HDP Water-Repellent Coating is dependent on the air temperature and relative humidity. At 70 °F (21 °C), 55% R.H., HDP Water-Repellent Coating is dry to the touch in 1/2 hour and dry to handle or recoat in 2 hours. Always protect work from rain for at least 24 hours.
Beading Effect: The beading effect occurs after approximately 30 days of weathering. This effect is more easily seen on finer finishes.
Testing Information: For individual test data on this product’s properties, refer to the chart included with this document.
Job Conditions: Air and surface temperature for application of HDP Water-Repellent Coating must be 45 °F (7 °C) or higher and must remain so for at least 12 hours.
Surfaces shall be clean, dry, above 45 °F (7 °C) and free of efflorescence, grease, oil, form release agents and curing compounds. On previously coated surfaces, all loose coating and gloss must be removed by sanding.
