Product Information

The right kit for your needs will depend on the size of the area you’re coating. With the current Propspeed packaging, our three kit sizes correspond to the following coverage areas:
200ml: up to 0.4m2 or 4.3ft2
500ml: up to 1m2 or 10.75ft2

1 liter: up to 2m2  or 21.5ft2

View the coverage guide here.

Please note: The new Propspeed packaging will be in market in the second quarter of 2021. The new kit sizes correspond to the following coverage areas:
Small: up to 0.7m2  / 7.5ft2.
Medium: up to 1.7m2 / 18.3ft2.
Large: 3.4m2 / 36.6ft2.

The critical differences in the three different application systems are (1) the way the surfaces are prepared for coating purposes, and most importantly, (2) the cleaning agents found within each kit perform a specific function pertaining to the surface to be coated. Using the correct product and following the correct preparation and application instructions provided is critical to maximize performance across our range of products.

Two key temperature measurements are monitored during a Propspeed application. The most important of the two is the air temperature and the humidity rating, the second is the surface temperature of the metal. Both of these temperatures play a role in the coating window and the dry time.

The maximum application temperature is 35°C / 95°F air and 35°C / 95°F surface temperature.
