This is also of interest to you:

  • Apply in a thin layer. The hardening of the product is produced by contact with air. For this reason, it should be applied in a thin layer and not in a thick one so that it dries properly.
  • Allow to dry very well between coats.
  • Ideal temperature for drying: from 20ºC onwards.
  • If it is cold, it is recommended to heat the area up to 20ºC.
