Time between coats?

People,

I am using an etching primer and always have stress with the picture instructions on spray cans. I have attached a photo, can anyone advise me from the photo what the time is between coats??

Cheers

Looks like 5- 20 minutes. If you wait too long the coats will not bond to each other. If you go too short, the coats will eat each other. I would wait 6 minutes and apply the subsequent coat.

At 20 minutes, the piece can be handled and final sanded for topcoating.

Ade can also give great advise on painting. I think he did it for 20 years.

People,

I am spraying from an aerosol can over this weekend.

In the UK the outside air tempertature is around 12 degrees celcius or 55 degrees farenheit. I can only spray outside really.

I would appreciate thoughts on whether or not such a temperature is OK for spraying outside. Secondly, in advance of the spraying should I keep the item that is being sprayed cool, at outside ambient temperature or warm. Please also advise on the same for the actual aerosol can.

I have attached a photo of the instructions on the aerosol can which may assist in getting some answers

Cheers

Check for rain, barometric pressure, atmospheric humidity, dew point and wind strength Sub ; )

only kidding..I'd wait for a nice warm dry calm day or take it somewhere indoors..
