Worked as advertised. Need to stir it thoroughly scraping bottom of can as the sand settles during storage. Looks great and is durable.

Great product. Stir or shake thoroughly before use. Provides a safe, slip-free surface to walk on, even when wet with rain or morning dew. One coat over previous, worn wing walk did the job.

Excellent wing walk paint. Covers very well. Use heavy duty paint paddle to stir. Mix well before and during use. Dries in a day or two well enough to walk on.

The paint was very easy to apply and dried very quickly. And the finished appearance was excellent. There is a small effort involved stirring the paint to achieve and maintain a proper consistency.

More suitable for a non-slip portion of aircraft wings than the rubberized ultra product. Good results with (1) good, firmly applied masking tape, (2) using not one but two paint stir sticks to scrape the grit off the bottom of the can and mix it into the product, and (3) use of a brush slightly smaller than the can.

I have used this product before and it works well. It will make a clean edge when striping tape is used to outline the area.

Q: How much Toluene per quart of Randolph wing walk compound do I need? Or is it mostly for prep and clean up?

The wing walk compound is ready to use out of the can, but it can be thinned 5 to 1 with Toluene if the application requires it.

Q: Regarding the Randolph Wing Walk Compound: Is it necessary to remove the old wing walk paint or should I just wipe clean with solvent and apply paint?

It can be used over itself, as long |as the surface is cleaned properly and there is no contamination.

Q: How many square feet does one gallon of the Randolph Wing Walk Compound cover?

It depends on how thick the coats you use are, but a general guide would be one unthinned gallon covers approximately 150 square feet with one coat.

Q: What is the temperature range for applying Randolphs wing walk?

It can be applied at any temperature. The vapors will hang around and stink up the place when the temperature is below 65 degrees F and the lower the temperature the longer it takes to dry. 65-90 degrees F is optimum.

Q: What product do you recommend to use for cleaning/prepping a surface with pre-existing walk compound?

To clean and prep a pre-existing walk compound you will just need to dust it off and clean with soap and water. If you wanted to remove the walk compound, you will then need to heat it up and physically scrape it off.

Q: Will this Randolph Wing Walk adhere well to bare steel, such as the step on my 170, or does it require a primer?

Primer would be best, but not required.

Q: Is Wing walk waterproof? Is it effected by moisture?

It is oil based so it is pretty waterproof when dry.

Q: Is there a shelf life for the X1567 Wing Walk?

Yes, the shelf life is two years from the date of manufacture.

Q: How long does it take to dry and completely be able to walk on?

Per the Ceconite How To Manual, it dries overnight, can be walked on after 24 hours, but suggests using caution the first week, it will be a little tacky.

Q: Can it be applied in direct sun when the plane surface might be 150-180F or best apply on a shady day or hangar?

Per Randolph: For best results, apply in a controlled environment.
