Protectakote Spray Application PDF Print

Protecta-kote can be sprayed using a simple shutz gun and compressed air. Protecta-kote for spray applications is supplied in a customized one litre can that is designed to simply screw onto the spray gun. These spray-guns can be purchased from NVP or our stockists.

The following equipment is recommended for PROTECTA-KOTE spray application: Xylene for cleaning protectakote-spray-tinand dilution, scouring pad and/or medium grit sandpaper, rubber gloves, paint mixer drill attachment or stirring rod, masking tape, and clean-up rags and standard air compressor. Spray pressure of 3-5 bar (40-50 psi) required. Use of a respiratory mask to prevent solvent inhalation is recommended.


  1. Prepare surface as per normal Protecta-kote application.
  2. Open Protecta-kote can being careful to pry the inner seal out using a flat-blade screwdriver. Contents of the can may be under pressure so angle the can away from the body while lifting the seal.
  3. Using a stirring stick or drill attachment mix the contents of the can thoroughly being careful to lift any of the rubber crumbs that may have settled at the bottom of the can.
  4. Ensure that the spray nozzle is out far enough to allow a smooth flow of Protecta-kote and prevent clogging.
  5. Reinstall screw cap and shake the can vigorously for a few minutes.
  6. Remove the cap again and thread the spray gun into the top of the can and tighten firmly.
  7. Connect the spray gun to an air compressor with a pressure of 3 - 5 bar (50 - 60 PSI). test spray the gun away from the vehicle to become familiar with the spray pattern and coverage.
  8. Spray a thin uniform coat of PROTECTA-KOTE to the entire surface. Do not apply to thickly to spray-gun-for-protectakote.jpgprevent running and drips. Clean up any over-sprays immediately.
  9. Clean out the spray gun with Xylene between coats to prevent it from clogging.
  10. Wait until the first coat has become touch-dry, about 1 to 3 hours, before applying a second coat. Poor inter-coat adhesion will result when the second coat is applied after the first coat has been allowed to fully cure. If the first coat has fully cured the surface must be abraded with 180 grit sand papers before applying the second coat.
  11. Clean the spray gun out thoroughly after finishing the second coat
