    Can I Do To Keep The Adhesive Base Coat Wet Longer?

    To keep the Adhesive Base Coat wet prior to applying the Decorative Chips, keep windows closed and ceiling fans off. Avoid air movement or breezes while applying Adhesive Base Coat. This may cause it to dry faster. In addition, the Wetting Agent allows the surface to stay wet longer allowing the chips to better adhere to the Adhesive Base Coat.

    How Does Humidity and Temperature Affect the Coating Application Process?

    Higher humidity will cause the Adhesive Base Coat to dry more slowly. This helps increase the time window for applying and adhering the Decorative Chips onto the wet Adhesive Base Coat. Ideal conditions are 50% relative humidity and temperature at or around 70 degrees F. Do not apply the Adhesive Base Coat at relative humidity levels below 30% or above 70% and when the dew point is under 5 degrees F.

    TIP: If humidity is low, use a humidifier to increase moisture levels in the room.
