Capadecor StuccoDecor Di Luce

Synthetic resin filling compound for mirror finish
smoothing technique.

Field of Application

Synthetic resin filling compound for creating interior wall surfaces with mirror finish effect.

Material Properties

  • Water-dilutable.
  • Semi-transparent (translucent).
  • Mirror finish effect is achievable without additional finishing coat.
  • Efficient and safe application technique.
  • Tintable via ColorExpress tinting & mixing machine system.
  • Diffusion- and sorption-capable.

Packaging/Package Size

2.5 litres and 5 litres

Colours

Whitish, semi-transparent

Tinting:
Can be tinted via the ColorExpress tinting & mixing machine system in approx. 1,300 colour shades of colour fan decks Caparol 3D plus and CaparolColor.
 
If more than one bucket is tinted for coating seamless surfaces, all product must be thoroughly mixed before use in order to avoid colour differences. Quantities of 40 litres or more in individual colours may be ordered ready-tinted ex factory.

Organic pigmented colours (e.g. red and orange) may change in colour in areas subjected to strong natural light (daylight). The discolouration can be minimised when using StuccoDecor Wachsdispersion, but cannot be completely avoided.

Gloss Level

Satin-gloss/satin-finished (mid sheen) to glossy, depending on the working method.

Storage

Keep in a cool, but frost-free place.

Density

Approx. 1.45 g/ml

Diffusion-equivalent air layer thickness sdH2O

Approx. 0.06 m

Supplementary Product

  • AkkordSpachtel fein (fine filler)
  • StuccoDecor Wachsdispersion (wax dispersion/emulsion)

(–) inapplicable / (○) of limited suitability / (+) suitable

Suitable Substrates

Interior surfaces: Mineral plasters in mortar groups PII (lime-cement mortars), PIII (cement mortars), PIV (gypsum mortar and ready-mixed gypsum plaster), plasterboards, gypsum wallboards and concrete.

The substrate must be dry, clean, sound/stable, planar (trowelled up smoothly), without any colour contrast, and free from all substances that may prevent good adhesion.
In Germany: Follow VOB, part C, DIN 18363, section 3.

Substrate Preparation

Apply one priming coat of Capadecor DecoGrund or Haftgrund. Then apply 1 – 2 full surface coats of Caparol-Akkordspachtel fine up to quality level/classification Q4 (other surfacers are not suitable). Intermediate sanding after drying (up to P200-240 grit). Then prime with CapaSol in order to equalize the absorption capacity and for embedding dust particles.

Method of Application

Apply a thin coat of StuccoDecor DI LUCE over the full surface (preferably using only a little quantity of the product).

First working step:
Bild 5 (029112_SDDL_1te_2a.jpg)
  • Coat seamless surfaces wet-on-wet.
  • Allow to dry, then remove all burrs.



Second and third working step (if necessary):
Bild 6 (029113_SDDL_2te_schicht1a.jpg)
  • The second filling is effected in the same working method like the first coat.
  • The lustre is enhanced with the second coat.
  • A third application (on request) generates nearly a mirror finish.
Polishing the surface:
Bild 7 (029114_SDDL_2te_schicht_pol2.jpg)
  • After a short flash-off time or also after drying, the surface is polished by drawing scraper.
  • Draw the scraper in a small angle and with soft pressure over the surface.
  • Thus the typical glossy surface is generated.

Advice: Polishing of surfaces using machine equipment may have machine-related risks and should therefore only be effected by the professionals. A third coat, followed by polishing with a spring blade scraper, provides a similar brilliance (gloss/lustre).

Design Advice:
Smoothing techniques with StuccoDecor DI LUCE give you the sensation of a fascinating interplay with light reflections between deeper layers and reflections on the surface. An additional gloss coating is not necessary! Individual surface design is possible by varying the working technique.

Consumption

Approx. 80 – 100 ml/m2 per coat.
Determine the exact amount of material required by coating a test area on site.

Application Conditions

Lower Temperature Limit for Application and Drying:

+5 °C for product, ambient air and substrate.

Drying/Drying Time

At + 20 °C and 65 % relative humidity surface-dry after 30 – 60 minutes. Completely dry and ready for stress after 1 – 2 days. Lower temperatures and higher relative humidity extend the drying time.

Tools

For an efficient application of StuccoDecor DI LUCE the use of an abrasion-resistant stainless steel made drawing knife (double blade spring scraper) is advisable. Before doing so, generally smooth the scraper with wet abrasive paper (400 - 600 grit) and remove sharp edges.

Tool Cleaning

Immediately after use with clean water.

Note

Cleaning Advice:
The surface of StuccoDecor DI LUCE is cleanable. All soiling must directly be removed using tap water and a moistened soft wipe.

The additional use of StuccoDecor Wachsdispersion (wax dispersion/emulsion) may be helpful to protect from influences of liquids. See Technical Information No. 905.

Do not apply StuccoDecor DI LUCE nearby kitchen sinks and cooking areas or protect sufficiently by suitable means, e.g. glass facing.
