The tall outer tin contains a tin of Resin and a tin of Curing Agent. Remove these two tins and stir the contents of each thoroughly. Decant both tins into the tall outer tin. The two components should then be very thoroughly mixed together using a wide bladed stirrer. A wooden batten at least 25mm wide is ideal. Mix for 2 - 3 minutes until an even colour and consistency are obtained.
Pour the mixture into a shallow paint tray and apply using a medium pile roller. A brush can be used for touch-ups. Apply all of the mixture in one hour (it is usable for up to 2 hours at 20°C). Do not apply at temperatures below 10°C or above 30°C. Cold and damp conditions during application can delay or stop the curing. Avoid applying too thickly.
