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.
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.
