Surface Conditioner is a gentle, inter-coat cleaning agent that helps to remove any surface contaminants, fingerprints, sanding dust etc.,and promotes inter-coat bonding. Not for use on bare wood. Environmentally Safe and Non-Toxic.
Properly prepping your tumbler is a critical step before using any paints or topcoats on it. Stainless tumblers have a factory waterproof coating on them that needs to be completely removed prior to painting. Plastic, glass and ceramic also need to be scuff sanded. We suggest a thorough sanding using 80 to 220 grit sandpaper to ruff up the surface and then wipe clean with Surface Conditioner or wash off with dawn dish soap to remove any traces of dust or fingerprints.
Apply CrystaLac products at room temperature minimum of (68 to 75 degrees) and allow 4 hours drying time between coats of paint and/or finish. Apply thin coats. Finishes will self-level as they dry. Do Not Use heat guns to force drying. Full cure is 30 days. You can gently use before that, but it will continue to harden over a 30 day period. Hand wash only with soap and water. Dry immediately and do not submit tumblers to extreme heat.
All products manufactured by The CrystaLac Company are Non-Toxic, Non-Hazardous, FDA compliant, Non-Yellowing and completely safe to use indoors. Use a mask when sanding or spraying. We are a family owned company based here in the USA that has been making environmentally safe coatings for over 30 years.
