- BEFORE YOU
For all repairs, make sure area is completely clean, dry and free from loose material or dust. If there is rust, remove rust until area is free from any particles and apply Corrode-A-Fix before proceeding with any repair. If rust is not neutralized completely it will return. A dust mask should be worn during sanding step of any product.
Once the factory seal is broken, shelf life is limited due to external factors and cannot be guaranteed. FIXTURE-FIX products are intended for a one time use but, if stored in ideal conditions, further applications may be available. Wipe the top of the bottle and the inside of the cap before closing.
For deep chips and gouges, you should first fill them with Fill-A-Fix before using Porc-A-Fix.
RepairPorc-A-Fix is made for cosmetic touch-ups, not refinishing.
Shake the bottle of Porc-a-Fix VOC well.
Apply touch-up glaze, using the brush-top applicator with thin coats.Porc-A-Fix will never dry if you apply thick coats.
Dry. Allow 5 hours to dry between applications. If rust is present, use Corrode-A-Fix to neutralize rust. Porc-A-Fix is not food safe and should never be used on any item that may hold food for consumption. Let dry for 24 hours before use. To speed up dry time, simply use a handheld hair dryer at least 12 inches away from the material and set on the coolest setting.
Finish. Taping off repair area can be helpful to avoid scuffing of undamaged areas. In between thin coats, lightly sand damaged area only, with supplied 600 wet and dry sandpaper, until smooth. Avoid sanding undamaged areas. Repeat until damaged area is covered. It is not necessary to sand the last coat.
Then buff the repair and surrounding area with a soft cloth and a bit of automotive polishing compound.
For routine cleaning of the repaired area, use a mild liquid abrasive or dishwashing liquid; we recommend this not only for the repaired area, but for the entire fixture. Do not use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners on the repaired area. This will reduce the chance of scratches from surface dirt or abrasion.
Porc-A-Fix, Tile-A-Fix and Laminate-Fix colors can be adjusted by using another color of same product. Do not adjust the entire bottle. If you lighten or darken too much, then you have no other material to use. Pour some of the contents out of the bottle in a paper cup and adjust that. Allow a very small amount of the color being used to adjust, to roll off the brush cap into the cup of material being adjusted. The color will darken as it dries.
