CONDURSAL Z0095 Instructions For Use:
Condursal Z0095 provides excellent protection for steel components against oxidation during heat treatment up to temperatures of 1600° F maximum. Condursal Z0095 is easy to apply, residues can be easily removed by washing in hot water.

Surfaces of the work pieces to be protected must be free of oil, grease and dirt, which can be achieved by alkaline washing or degreasing with chlorinated solvents.

Prior to using Condursal Z0095, it must be thoroughly mixed. The paint can then be applied with a brush or by immersion. Flat brushes with soft bristles are best suited for brush application.

The paint must be applied in a continuous coat of even thickness of .008" to .012".

Normally one coat is sufficient for effective protection.

For optimum protection, it is necessary that the coating be completely dry before placing parts into the furnace. Drying time will vary depending upon temperature and atmospheric humidity. Normal drying time is one to three hours.

If the paint becomes thickened in the course of time due to evaporation, the addition of Condursal Thinner will restore the normal viscosity. The paint should be thinned only to such an extent that it can again be coated like semi-fluid oil paint; an excessive thinning would impair the protective effect of Condursal Z0095.

Removal of Residues:
After heat treatment, the residues of Condursal Z0095 can easily be removed by washing in hot water.

Cleaning of brushes and other equipment:
For cleaning brushes, it is recommended that Trichlorethylene or Condursal Thinner be used, but NEVER water.

The can must be tightly sealed after each application, and prevented from freezing.
