Series 6 | Tneme-Cryl

Generic Type Acrylic Emulsion
Common Usage Industrial grade, matte finish, water-based coating with excellent color retention. Good overall protection for most interior/exterior surfaces in mild to moderately severe exposures. Application methods include “dry-fall” under certain conditions (see Application).
Colors Refer to Tnemec Color Guide.
Finish Matte
Primers Steel: Series 10, 37H, 90. Primers dry film thickness should be at least 2.0 mils (50 microns) above the peaks of the blast profile. (Reference SSPC-PA2). Note: If previous coats contain pinholes to bare steel, flash rusting may occur. Two coats of Series 10 or 37H are required under Series 6. When Series 90 or 37H is used as a primer, two coats of Series 6 are required as a topcoat.
Galvanized Steel: Self-priming
CMU: 54-562 or 130
Wood: 36-603 or 151-1051
Self-priming or 151-1051 on concrete, masonry, fiberboard and drywall.
