Smart Coat is a strong yet non-hazardous, zero VOC, no odor, one part, self hardening, non-yellowing, and non-cracking top coat. Smart Coat works well over patinas, rust-oxides, as well as all clean polished metals. It may be diluted slightly with distilled water to allow for a penetration of heavy oxides. Smart Coat is a polymer/resin, yet cleans up with water and is eco friendly. Smart Coat tacks up and hardens quickly to a beautiful hard, thin coating that is fast drying. Application Conditions: Use when the temperature is between 50°F (10°C) to 90°F (32°C) and humidity is below 85% to ensure proper drying. This sealer is self leveling and may be brush applied. You may put the Smart Coat into your own sprayer No dilution is necessary to spray apply. May be diluted up to 25% with distilled water. Avoid applying in very windy, dusty conditions. Cover surrounding area to protect from spray mist. Instructions for Application: 1) Preparation: For new bare metal, sand with 180 grit (or below) sandpaper to slightly abrade surface. Clean metals with Sculpt Nouveau’s Metal Cleaner to remove all dust and oils making sure to remove all polishing compounds. 2) Apply thin coats to all metal surfaces. Works best if sprayed in a fine mist. If using a brush do not apply too thick or create puddles. Do not roll on. 3) Patina surfaces (acid base, phosphates, sulphides and oxides): Ensure patina is dry with a good adhesion to the metal substrate. Neutralize patina when necessary. Allow 24 hours for most patinas to stabilize (6 hours minimum). Test in a small area. If varnish wrinkles, lifts, or turns white while drying, strip to bare metal and abrade surface further. Repeat patina process. Smart Coat may be safely used over all plated surfaces such as nickel or zinc after they have been cleaned thoroughly with Sculpt Nouveau Metal Cleaner. 4) Dry and recoat times based on 70°F- 50% relative humidity: Allow to dry at least 1 hour and up to 6 hours in cooler temperatures. Dries to touch in less than 25 minutes, safe to handle in 1 hour and fully dry in 24 hours. Add additional dry time for multiple coats. Full cure in 72 hours from last application. 5) Clean up wet Smart Coat with warm soapy water.
