Dry Time Accelerator

Additive for Rust Preventive Coating

item(s): 40616

POR-15 Dry Time Accelerator is an additive specially formulated for use with POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating. Dry Time Accelerator is designed to accelerate the cure time of POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating by 30-50% without affecting the ultimate physical properties. Developed to allow for a more efficient production environment, POR-15 Dry Time Accelerator reduces recoat and dry time and enables you to move on to the next phase faster, without compromising product performance.

The accelerator is added to POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating by volume and should be thoroughly mixed. Once mixed in typically the cure time of the POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating is reduced by 30-50%.

Important: Adding the accelerator drastically reduces the cure time (time you have to apply to your substrate) and under humid and warmer conditions the dry time is significantly quicker.

We recommend testing to ensure your specific needs are met. One 8 oz. bottle of POR-15 Dry Time Accelerator is enough for 32 quarts or 8 gallons of POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating.

FAQ's

What do I do if I want to mix a smaller amount that a quart ?
Mix five drops per ounce for smaller amounts.
Can I use POR-15 Fast Dry Accelerator with other paints?
POR-15 Dry Time Accelerator was formulated exclusively for use with POR-15 Rust Preventive Paint. Other urethane paints may also benefit from the addition of POR-15 Dry Time Accelerator but we have not tested it with non-moisture cured urethane paints and do not recommend at this time.

gotta have it

If you are doing POR15 more than... once or twice you have to have this. Normally POR takes 2-4 hours before you can apply a second coat... how about cutting that time nearly in half? I am not sure if this next comment was coincidence or not but... I got less mini bubbles during the curing process with a drop or two of this in the mix. I did NOT have that result when reducing POR.

Saved a ton of time

This cut my wait time by more than half compared to the last time I used the POR-15 system. Definitely makes painting much faster. FYI you don't need a lot for it to work. Read the instructions before you add too much!

Application:

Directions: Add 1 ounce of POR-15 Dry Time Accelerator to 1 gallon of POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating and stir to mix thoroughly (do not shake). The dry time of POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating is dependent on temperature and humidity even with the addition of this accelerator. Spot testing is recommended.

Important: POR-15 Dry Time Accelerator is designed for use with POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating only and its use with other products is not recommended.
