    You need activator or it wont set. To signwrite you need to add 10-20% thinners to it.
    Pot life is probably half an hour or so before it thickens a bit, it will take hours to set - longer if you use a slow activator.

    As WB54 (below) says it wont flow very well (even with 20% thinners) though it should cover properly if its a high solid.
    Best to use the correct stuff.

    Don't use it, it won't flow or have the pigment content to cover properly. House of Kolor do striping urethane paints which can be cleared over.
