General Application of Boeshield T-9®
Apply Boeshield T-9® by drip, dip, brush, or spray. For a thin film application wipe off excess while still wet and allow to dry at least 2 hours. For long term corrosion protection simply wet the surface with Boeshield T-9® and allow to dry without wiping. The desired coating will form after 5 to 7 days drying time. Excessive coating will only increase puddling and extend drying time.
Boeshield T-9® can be easily sprayed or fogged with a variety of equipment. All that is necessary is enough pressure and nozzle size to form a mist. Depending on the application a hand pump garden sprayer may be used.
For applications such as bicycle chains apply by drip or dipping, wipe off the excess, and allow to dry at least 2 hours, preferably over night. Frequency of reapplication will depend on riding extent and conditions, as well as method of cleaning after use. Typically, road cyclists get at least 150 to 200 miles (240-320 Km) per application, with some claiming over 300 miles (500Km) per application. Off road riding will require reapplication after half that distance or less, depending on riding conditions.
For protecting tools such as saw blades and cutting bits during storage, clean the tools well with Blade & Bit™ and Rust Free™ as necessary (see instructions on product label), then apply Boeshield T-9® by spray or dip method and let dry. On tools in regular use including bits, blades, saw tables, planes, etc. apply Boeshield T-9® and wipe off excess. Repeat weekly, or more frequently as necessary. Boeshield T-9® will not stain wood when cutting with treated tools. Boeshield T-9® must be reapplied after use of tools to maintain corrosion inhibiting properties.
The aerosol form can be applied in temperatures ranging from +35°F to +100°F (+2°C to +38°C). The liquid form can be applied from 0°F to +100°F (-18°C to +38°C).
To remove coating, reapply and wipe off while wet, or use a degreasing cleaner.
