TROPICAL TONES KILLER CAN How to Apply (Application Steps) 1 If your piece already has primer applied, proceed to step number 11. If your piece already has primer AND a WHITE base coat applied, then lightly scuff the surface for adhesion, and proceed to step number 12. If your piece already has a factory finish on it, that is not white, you can lightly scuff that, and proceed to step 11. If your piece already has a factory finish on it that is white, you can simply scuff that and proceed to step number 12. 2 Always apply paints in a well-ventilated area, and wear a NIOSH approved respirator to avoid breathing any fumes. 3 Make sure you have good conditions for spraying. The best temperature for spraying this paint, is 75-80 degrees F, and VERY low humidity. 4 Prepare and prime your part first. Epoxy primers are best for bare metal, and primer surfacers are best for plastics, fiberglass, or wood. Some plastics may require an adhesion promoter but most plastics, like ABS plastic, are fine without adhesion promoters. Our tech support department can assist with what primer is best, if you are uncertain. 5 Before applying your primer, remove all dirt, grease, oil, salt, and chemical contaminants, by washing the surface with a commercial detergent, or other suitable cleaning method. 6 Rinse with fresh water and allow to completely dry. 7 Remove any existing loose paint, or rust, etc, with a wire brush or sand paper. 8 Lightly sand glossy surfaces to create a surface profile for adhesion. 9 Apply your primer to the surface according to the manufacturers specifications for your particular primer. 10 Let your primer cure according to the manufacturers specifications for your particular primer, and then lightly scuff that to create a surface profile for adhesion. 11 Apply a white base coat (such as Alsa’s Pure White, part number “KC-ASB-14) as your under coat for your Tropical Tone paint. About 2-3 coats, with 15-20 minutes between coats. Let the final coat dry for 15-20 minutes before proceeding. 12 Now apply your “Alsa Tropical Tones” base coat, using steady even passes, from about 8-10 inches away from the substrate, until you achieve an even coverage. 13 If a second coat is required, let the first coat flash for about 15-20 minutes, and then apply your second coat over that, again, making sure to use steady even passes. 14 Let your base coat flash for approximately 15-20 minutes, and then apply any high quality clear coat (such as Alsa’s Mirraclear, part number KC-MCLR, or ALSA’s Speed Clear, part number SC1230), for durability, and a deep, water-wet look.
