Field of ApplicationFast-drying, rust inhibitive priming coat with high adhesion on iron and steel and wash primer on aluminium, copper, zinc (galvanised surfaces), unplasticized (rigid) PVC, wood and derived timber products.
- Fully-fledged anti-corrosive primer on iron and steel (according to German standard DIN 18363).
- Fast-drying, already recoatable after 3 hours (white and pastel tints) up to 6 hours (when intensively tinted) with all alkyd resin enamels.
- Excellent adhesion to many substrates.
- High weather resistance.
- Free of aromatic hydrocarbons.
Material Base / VehicleSpecial synthetic resin combination with active anti-corrosion pigments and non-aromatic solvents.
- Standard Colours:
125 ml, 375 ml, 750 ml, 2.5 litres, 10 litres
375 ml, 750 ml, 2.5 litres, 10 litres
Silver Grey RAL 7001, Nut Brown RAL 8011, Black RAL 9005.
Further colour shades tintable via the ColorExpress (Capalac mix) tinting & mixing machine system.
When applying colours with low opacity, like Red, Orange or Yellow, it is advisable to apply one priming coat using the matching colour shade of our Priming System.
Capalac AllGrund is deliverable in Priming System colour shades via the ColorExpress tinting technique.
Silk-matt/semi-gloss (mid sheen)
Keep in a cool place.
Keep container tightly closed.
DensityApprox. 1.3 g/cm3, depending on the colour shade.
Suitability according to Technical Information No. 606 Definition of Application Areas
|Interior 1||Interior 2||Interior 3||Exterior 1||Exterior 2|
|(–) inapplicable / (○) of limited suitability / (+) suitable|
Wood and derived timber products, iron and steel, zinc/galvanised surfaces, aluminium, copper, unplasticized (rigid) PVC, and sound existing paint coatings. Unsuitable for use on anodised aluminium.
The substrate must be clean, sound/stable, dry, and free from all substances that may prevent good adhesion.
Max. permissible moisture content in dimensionally stable wood: 13 %, in dimensionally unstable or only limited stable wooden parts: 15 %
Special advice for coating galvanised steel or sheet zinc:Always apply min. 2 coats of Capalac AllGrund on the thoroughly prepared surface, in order to prevent diminished adhesion of the following finishing coats of alkyd enamels, caused by zinc oxyde.
Alternative treatment: Priming with Capalac 2K-EP-Haftgrund or Disbon 481 EP-Uniprimer is also possible.
Another tried and tested coating system for zinc/galvanised parts: Priming coat of Capacryl Haftprimer, followed by an intermediate and one finishing coat of Capacryl PU-Satin/Gloss.
For protective coatings on galvanised parts (duplex system according to standard DIN EN ISO 12944) Capalac Dickschichtlack or Capalac Aqua Metallschutz should be preferred.
Sand the surface in fibre direction, clean thoroughly, remove seeping wood contents, e.g. resins and resin galls, cut sharp edges (see BFS Data Sheet No. 18).
Derust according to industry standard SA 2 1/2 (blasting) or ST3 (mechanically) according to DIN EN ISO 12 944-4.
Zinc/Galvanised Surfaces, Unplasticized (Rigid) PVC:
Wash with light ammonia solution using sanding pad/abrasive fabric according to BFS Data Sheet No. 5 and No. 22 or Gescha MultiStar with abrasive fabric. Sweep blasting.
Aluminium (not anodised):
Clean with destined detergents, e.g. Gescha Multi-Star, then sand with a plastic abrasive fleece (see BFS Data Sheet No. 6).
Prepare with Gescha Multistar in a mixing ratio of 1:5, using synthetic sanding pad/abrasive fabric.
Sound/Stable Existing Paint Coatings:
Roughen (sand) the surface of existing coatings slightly and/or treat with alkali. Remove unsound existing coatings.
Method of ApplicationApply Capalac AllGrund with paint brush, roller or spraying equipment. Stir well before use.
Thin with Caparol AF-Verdünner (non-aromatic), if necessary.
