The primer shall be coated in 2 layers on the surface for providing a maximum protective effect.
Each next layer shall be coated in 24 hours. The coating is performed at the temperature from + 10°С till + 35 °С and relative air humidity no more than 80%. Do not apply the enamel under direct sunlight, strong wind, frost and atmospheric precipitation. After the coating is applied it shall not be affected by atmospheric precipitation for 24 hours.
