Note:

  • If corrosion of the pinch-weld flange is present, or if sheet metal repairs or replacements are required, refinish the pinch-weld flange in order to present a clean, primer-only surface.
  • If paint repairs are required, mask the flange bonding area, prior to applying the color coat, in order to provide a clean, primer-only surface.
  • Appropriate materials for these primer applications are typically 2 component catalyzed products. Use materials such as BASF?€‰DE15?®, DuPont?€‰2610?®, Sherwin-Williams PSE?€‰4600 and NP70?® and Martin-Semour?€‰5120 ,5130?® , PPG?€‰DP90LF SPIES/HECKER?€‰3688/8590 ?€“ 3688/5150 ?€“ 4070/5090 STANDOX?€‰11158/13320 ?€“ 14653/14980 products are approved for this application. Follow the manufacturer's directions for the mix, the application, and the drying times.
  • After repairing the opening as indicated, shake the pinch-weld primer black?€‰#3 well. Using a new dauber, apply the primer to the primed surface of the flange in the bonding area. Allow the primer to dry for 10?€‰minutes.
