The availability of Formazo seems to have been a well kept secret. It is now available premixed and ready for coating. It needs a suitable surfactant with some methods of application or on some surfaces and it will need a hardener on all surfaces. It will need to be processed using a hardening fix.
Are there more detailed instructions on the use of Formazo on the Formulary site somewhere? Something that addresses the issues you mention here?
