Technical data:

  • Application temperature: 5–30ºC.
  • Cure rate at 20ºC/ 65% RH: Arboflex 500 forms a protective skin within three days (remainder of the material underneath remains uncured).
  • Painting: Not usually necessary as bedding lines left exposed after glazing has taken place will perform satisfactorily for many years without painting. However, Arboflex 500 can be painted with most common paint finishes if required.
