AutoBorne Sealers are a water-based epoxy which takes 48 hours to fully cure after application. Sealers may be taped on, sanded and Createx Colors products may be applied less than 30 minutes after application. Prior to applying solvent-based paint or clear direct to Sealers allow 48 hours cure time, sand or degrease prior to application. Sealers may be top-coated with solvent-based paint soon after application provided Sealers are wiped with degreaser or sanded. Applying Createx Colors paints direct to Sealers after application does not require sanding or degreasing.
