Field of ApplicationPre-finishing lacquer (undercoat) to facilitate high-quality enamel coatings on exterior & interior wood or metal surfaces. Due to a typical odour of alkyd enamels, it is advisable to use Capacryl PU-Vorlack for priming coats on large, seamless interior surfaces instead.
- Excellent opacity (hiding/covering power), highly covering edges.
- High filling properties.
- High stability (low sagging).
- Excellent adhesion.
- Good sandability.
- Excellent flow.
- Thixotropic, non-dripping viscosity.
- Free of lead and chromate.
- Colour shade is adjusted to match the white enamels/varnishes (Capalac).
Material Base / VehicleAlkyd resin with non-aromatic solvents.
375 ml, 750 ml, 2.5 litres
500 ml, 750 ml, 2.5 litres
More colour shades can be tinted via ColorExpress (Capalac mix).
When colour shades with a lower opacity (hiding/covering power) are used, e.g. red, orange or yellow, it is advisable to apply one priming coat of Capalac Vorlack, tinted in a matching priming system colour, available via ColorExpress.
Gloss LevelMatt (flat)
StorageKeep in a cool place, in tightly closed cans/containers.
DensityApprox. 1.5 g/cm³
