- Smooth finish provides an excellent bonding surface for additional primers or topcoats.
- Easy to apply.
- Excellent water, chemical and corrosion resistance for aluminum surfaces.
- High Performance Strontium Chromate Primer for all aluminum surfaces.
Aluma Protect is an epoxy primer specifically formulated for use on sand-blasted aluminum where maximum corrosion resistance to fresh and salt water is required. Coating is resistant to water, as well as, many chemical fumes and very humid environments.
Pettit Protect High Build Epoxy 4700/4701 is usually used over the Aluma Protect for bare aluminum, pontoon hulls, and outdrives.
Aluma Protect Aluminum Epoxy Primer 4400/4401 is a corrosion resistant, two component epoxy-polyamide coating for use on sandblasted aluminum where maximum resistance to fresh or salt water is required. The complete coating system is resistant to water, many industrial chemical fumes, and very humid environments. It is intended as a corrosion resistant primer coat for aluminum pleasure craft and has excellent durability in exterior exposures, although, like most epoxies, it will chalk if not topcoated.
Stir both components thoroughly. Mix the two components together in the ratio of 1 part of Component A to 1 part of Component B by volume. Allow to stand 15 minutes at approximately 70° before using. (Allow to stand at least 30 minutes if temperature is between 50° and 65°F) May be applied by brush, roller, conventional or airless spray. Thinning is not normally required for application, however, small amounts of 97 Epoxy Thinner may be used if necessary to facilitate application. Wet film thickness should be 3.6 mils per coat, which yields 1.0 mil dry film thickness. A wet film thickness gauge should be used to monitor paint application. One or two coats of Aluma Protect 4400/4401 should be overcoated with Pettit Protect 4700/4701 to provide a corrosion and chemical resistant barrier for use on all aluminum craft and surfaces.
Coating performance, in general, is proportional to the degree of surface preparation. Follow recommendations carefully, avoiding shortcuts. Inadequate preparation of surfaces will virtually assure inadequate coating performance. Degrease aluminum by wiping with 97 Epoxy Thinner. Sandblast, sand or grind the surface to achieve a good adhesion profile.
