PPG PAINT BREAKTHROUGH – Q&A

 

Q: WHAT COLORANTS DO I USE TO TINT PPG BREAK-THROUGH!

A: BREAK-THROUGH! Tints with both PPG custom colorants (96 line colorants) and AQUA-CHEM (896 colorants). For optimum performance, safety colors and high chroma colors should be tinted with 896 colorants. All colors formulas for the PPG Voice of color and other colors on the color card can be found in the PPG Electronic Formula Book.

 

Q: IS BREAK-THROUGH! A DIRECT-TO-METAL COATING?

A: BREAK-THROUGH! Can be use as a DTM for interior only in dry environments. When BREAK-THROUGH! Is used in an exterior application, a primer is recommended under aluminum, ferrous and galvanized metals. Please refer to the technical data sheet for a complete listing of appropriate primers.

 

Q: WHAT IS FASTBLOCK TECHNOLOGY?

A: FASTBLOCK technology ensures superior early block resistance, very quick dry and hardness that allows quick usage and handling. This technology is ideal for doors, windows, cabinets, shelving or other items that need to be stacked or close in a short period of time.

 

Q: CAN I USE BREAK-THROUGH! ON HORIZONTAL SURFACES?

A: YES. BREAK-THROUGH! Is suitable for interior concrete and wood floors that are subject to foot traffic and forklift traffic. When coating floors, proper surface preparation is critical. New concrete should cure for least 30 days, preferably 90 days prior to painting, and have a pH of less than 10 before painting. The concrete should be clean and dry and free of all contamination. To ensure proper adhesion, the concrete must have a profile which can be done by using an etching cleaner or muriatic acid and then rinsed thoroughly with water to neutralize the surface.

 

BREAK-THROUGH! Is self-priming to concrete; two coats are recommended. The first coat serves as a primer and can be thinned 5 to 10%, and an unthinned coat is use for the second coat. The dry time 12 hours for foot traffic and 24 to 36 hours for forklift traffic (Dry time is based on 77 F, 50% humidity, at the recommended film thickness according to the technical data sheets.) Please see each specific product date sheet for more precise dry time for forklift traffic. (BREAK-THROUGH! Should not be used when subject to hot tires.)


Q: DOES BREAK-THROUGH! HANDLE AND APPLY LIKE MOST OTHERS LATEX PAINTS?

A: BREAK-THROUGH! Dries and develops hardness much faster than traditional latex paints. Precautions must be taken to maintain a wet edge. Open time for brush and roll is improved with addition of 5 to 10% water. When the paint starts to dry, it is best to leave it and come back to touch up after 30 to 60 minutes or recoat after 2 hours.

 

Q: CAN BREAK-THROUGH! BE USED ON EXTERIOR WOOD?

A: BREAK-THROUGH! Can only be used on incidental wood; exterior doors and trim, and should not be used on large expanses of wood.

 

Q: CAN BREAK-THROUGH! BE USED ON ROOFS?

A: BREAK-THROUGH! Can only be used on incidental wood; exterior doors and trim, and should not be used on large expanses of wood.

 

Q: CAN BREAK-THROUGH! BE USED ON ROOFS?

A: BREAK-THROUGH! Is not suitable for roofs.

 

Q: CAN BREAK-THROUGH! BE USED ON CERAMIC TILE, LAMINATED, FIRERGLASS AND MANY PLASTICS WITHOUT A PRIMER?

A: YES. BREAK-THROUGH! Is self-priming to all of these surfaces. A test patch in recommended: allow to dry overnight and then check for proper adhesion. Please refer to the technical data sheet for recommended surface preparation by substrate. (Ceramic tile is only self-priming when using the V70-610 series or V50-410 series.)

 

Q: IS THERE A CLEAR IN THE BREAK-THROUGH! PRODUCK LINE? IF SO, WHAT IS IT USED FOR?

A: Yes. There are clears available on both satin (V50-V) and gloss (V70-V) finishes. These clear finishes are excellent choices for wood masonry and are ideal for floors and trim. They can also be used for interior ferrous metal. The clear finishes have the same FASTBLOCK technology, quick dry and hardness as the pigmented finishes. (These clears have a slight amber tone and may change the appearance of light colored surfaces.
