It is recommended to polish intermediate coats with small-grained sandpaper.

Do not apply a thick coat of varnish!

Application is performed at the temperature from + 10 °С till + 35 °С and relative air humidity no more than 80%. Do not apply the varnish 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.
