Surface Preparation:

Surface must be clean, dry and free of all contamination before application of gloss lacquer. Prime per specification requirements. STEEL: Surface must be clean and free of all oil, grease and foreign material. Badly rusted or pitted steel should be cleaned by commercial sandblasting and primed the same day.

Application & Reduction:

TT-L-32 should only be applied by spray application due to its fast dry properties. Thin up to one pint per gallon with MIL-T-81772B Type III Thinner, or as needed for proper tomization with spray equipment. Spray one tack coat followed by one full wet coat being sure to keep a “wet edge” for maximum gloss finish. The use of MIL-C-8514C and TT-P-1757B Primers or other recommended lacquer resistant primers are normally required for use under this lacquer topcoat.
