Products / Surface and Finish / Surface Maintenance / Outdoor Lighting - Paint Touchup Large Surface Repairs
Repairs should be made in a clean dry area with stable temperatures ranging from 20°C. (68°F) to 25°C. (77°F). You will need the following tools:

> 100 Grit sand paper or abrasive wheel;
> Small stirring paddle;
> 1” diameter paint roller and handle;
> Small paint brush;
> Cloth rags;
> Paint (Factory provided)
Typical repair conditions
Step 1 / Surface Preparation
Mechanically clean all surfaces to be painted using the sandpaper or abrasive wheel. Remove all oxidation and corrosion. Apply solvent to surface area to be painted. Thoroughly clean dirt and abrasive residue from the area being careful not to apply solvent to the existing powder coat surface. (Solvents will remove the gloss of the original paint surface)
Step 2 / Surface Priming
Mix primer ingredients together and let stand for one minute before applying to treatment area. Shake well before using. After mixture has been blended use immediately. Apply with a small brush. Do not allow runs or drips. Make as smooth as possible. Do not overwork the primer. Brush through the project area only once or twice to make a smooth surface. Mixture will harden shortly after application. Allow 30 minutes for primer to harden completely before applying the finish paint.

Step 3 / Surface Painting
Mix Paint ingredients together and let stand for one minute before applying to treatment area. Shake and blend well before using. After paint is blended use immediately. Apply to large surface areas with a 1”(25 mm) diameter paint roller to ensure a uniform paint thickness. Using a texturing roller will reproduce a textured paint finish. Apply paint so that it overlaps the existing paint slightly. The Paint contains the pigment and should require only one application if mixed properly. Allow parts to thoroughly dry for 30 to 45 minutes. When dry or hard to the touch reinstall.
Paint is applied on the prepared surface.
The paint should sightly overlap the surrounding surfaces.
