The enamel covered by this specification is intended for use as a finish or topcoat on equipment, machinery, furniture and electrical equipment in marine service where fire-retardancy is not required. This product may be applied where air pollution regulations apply. This enamel is a non-lead, non-chromate, nonasbestos material. The dried paint film has been tested to U.S. EPA standards and the paint debris is, as of the time of this specification, a non-hazardous waste. It may be applied by brush or spray and is suitable for any metal or wood structure. During development, this enamel was easily sprayed with a Binks #7 HTES (high transfer efficiency special) gun. Spraying with a high volume, low pressure (HVLP) gun was successful using an AIRVERTER® HVLP Sprayer available from Smith Eastern Corporation. The basic formulation provides an enamel of a gray color. This enamel has been formulated to comply with air pollution regulations which allow a maximum VOC of 250 grams of solvent minus water per liter of paint (2.08 lb/gal) as delivered, and does not require thinning for brush, roller, or spray application.View Less
