Product Data
SPRAY MASKING GEL (SMG) is designed to protect surfaces from paint and other construction material overspray and splatter.  It has a wide variety of uses, such as protection of surfaces from overspray during auto repair, protection of surfaces during the painting and application of stucco, protection of surfaces during restoration and cleaning of buildings. 

SMG was developed in coordination with professionals, utilizing low-hazard, environmentally friendly components.

SMG has demonstrated excellent properties with ease of application and washability.  In addition, since SMG is a clear gel, it allows windshield visibility as cars are moved to the refinish stage.  It may also be used to protect paint booth walls.

Instructions

SPRAY MASKING GEL is normally applied using conventional spray equipment (airless spray system or hand sprayer, which will provide for a spray mist) on the area to be protected from over-spray or splatter at a coverage of approximately 200 sq. ft. per gallon (average sq. ft. of a car is approximately 250 sq. ft.).

Thinning with water is not recommended, but may be necessary depending on the spray equipment.  For best results, the surface should be clean and dry at room temperature before SPRAY MASKING GEL is applied.  Coating a dirty surface will result in poor wetting.  For ease of rinsing, do not store cars coated with SMG  in the hot sun for extended periods of time or bake at temperatures over 160 degrees.  To rinse, use typical high-pressure hose.  Although it is not necessary, detergent will aid in cleaning. DO NOT apply SMG  to cloth tops or any surfaces which are absorbent.  Although SMG is miscible with water, it will require additional rinsing on some surfaces.  See your SPRAY MASKING GEL representative for recommendations.
