First Strike Micro Coat is CRT’s annual coil coating. Our coating maintains coil efficiency, prevents frequent cleaning of coils and coil corrosion, no mixing required, and needs applying once a year.
NO gimmick, just great thinking and in our case manufacturing!
You will need a pump-up sprayer, and of course your First Strike Micro Coat.
The application process starts by shutting down your HVAC system, and using Instant Powder Kegs coil cleaner to get all the dirt and dander off of the coils before applying. One thing to be mindful of is to be sure you rinse the coil completely.
Next, (With the fan running and chilled water off), spray First Strike Micro Coat on the coils using your handy dandy pump-up sprayer. Start at the top and work your way across (horizontally) and then down. Keep in mind, that if the chilled water is left on, the condensation from the coil will rinse off the First Strike and the product will not work. Also, having the fan running will pull the product within the interior of the coils.
After that, shut off the fan shortly, go to the downwind side of the coils and spray this part of the coil with the First Strike. (using about 2/3 of the gallon on the upwind part and 1/3 on the downwind side).
Lastly, turn the fan back on until the coils dry. This may take up to three hours or so, depending on humidity and air temperature. Basically, it should take about 30 minutes to an hour. You must wait to turn the chilled water or refrigerant, until the coils completely dry.
