Hello everybody!

Shouldn't the below sentence read as follows:
"IMPORTANT: Thorough cleaning of spray equipment is necessary if the next paint to be applied IS non-silicone based"?
IMPORTANT: Thorough cleaning of spray equipment is necessary if the next paint to be applied in non-silicone based.
What do you think?
Thank you.

I assume this is your corrected sentence. It is fine.

I think this was mentioned before by someone but you should make it easier for us to decide what is the original sentence and which might be your correction.

Change the letter color or use italics for the original sentence and tell us which is which, please.

This is JACEK1's post.

It's technical and you don't need to understand it.

I don't understand it, and I don't need to.
