Surface preparation

The maximum performance of TECTYL MULTIPURPOSE 506 can be achieved only when the metal surfaces to be protected are clean, dry and free of rust, oil and mill scale and a substrate temperature of 10-35 °C at the time of product application.


TECTYL MULTIPURPOSE 506 gives a maximum performance when it is sprayed at an ambient and product temperature of 10-25 °C. Shake the can with TECTYL MULTIPURPOSE 506 well before use and spray at a distance of approximately 25 cm from the surface. As the TECTYL
MULTIPURPOSE 506 is a fast drying product this can cause “pin-holing” when the product is applied too thick at once. Valvoline advises to spray one layer per pass, wait for 2 to 3 minutes and then spray another layer. Continue like this until the required film thickness has been obtained.


TECTYL MULTIPURPOSE 506 can be removed with mineral spirits or any similar petroleum solvent, hot alkaline wash or low pressure steam. If dried and cured the film of TECTYL MULTIPURPOSE 506 can also be removed with Tectyl Biocleaner.
