easy application of Penetrol primes, seals, bonds.
for over 75 years throughout the world, Penetrol has played an important
part in maintenance painting for leading industrial and shipping firms. Now, more
than ever, Penetrol provides many new ways to make a wide variety of tough jobs
What is it?
is a versatile blend of natural oils with a penetration power 3 times more than
water and a powerful bonding ability. High in solids, non-toxic when dry, colourless
and with low odour it is user friendly.
does it do?
Penetrol creeps into the most minute crevices
and pinholes of any surface where ordinary paint cannot enter. There it dries
to a tough yet flexible finish, forming a powerful bonding film for the next coat
of paint. Stable and durable, it compensates for the adverse effects that weather
and surface conditions have on paint. Used alone as a primer/sealer or added to
oil/alkyd based paint, varnishes and stains or metal and wood primers it enhances
their inherent qualities and makes them stick to almost anything - even glass.
Brush and lap marks are eliminated. Premature peeling, cracking and chalking are
a thing of the past. No more uneven paint film - a major cause of early breakdown
of surface coatings. And unlike thinners, Penetrol does not evaporate and
actually makes more paint. By ensuring greater coverage from each litre of paint
it saves money.
drop of ordinary paint did not spread far. It sits on the surface and does not
penetrate and bond properly. The same paint with 50% Penetrol spread many times
further and deeply penetrated the surface displacing all moisture and air.|
it can't do?
Penetrol cannot be used in 2-part chemical resistant
coatings, Acrylic or other water based paint, chlorinated rubber or coal tar coatings.
Always mix a small amount first, if not sure, to determine compatibility.
makes it easy to paint
Stir paint thoroughly and apply. When paint
"pulls" or "sets" too fast add Penetrol until the paint
spreads smoothly and evenly. If paint is very thick, or in hot weather, 20% to
30% Penetrol may be required. If after a while the paint begins to "pull"
add some more Penetrol. Let the brush or roller be the guide. For spraying
10-20% Penetrol is usually right. THE AMOUNT OF PENETROL NEEDED FOR EASY
APPLICATION WILL NOT CHANGE THE APPEARANCE OF THE PAINT.
