LV Texte

Field of Application

White pigmented, matt priming paint for wooden component parts with limited or unlimited dimensional stability, and intermediate coat for metal and unplasticized/rigid PVC, exteriors and interiors. Due to the characteristic odour of alkyd enamel coatings, it is advisable to use Capacryl PU-Vorlack, Capacryl Haftprimer or Capacryl Holz-IsoGrund for priming coats on large, seamless indoor surfaces to be coated.

Suitable Substrates

Wood, primed zinc (galvanised substrates), iron, aluminium and unplasticized/rigid PVC. Not suitable for 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 limited stable wood and parts of unstable shape: 15 %.

Wooden Parts:
Sand the surface in fibre direction, clean thoroughly, remove all seeping wood contents, e.g.  wood resin/rosin and resin galls (resin/pitch pockets). Cut sharp edges (see BFS Data Sheet No. 18).

Iron, Steel:
Derust according to industry standard SA 2 ½ (blasting) or ST3 (mechanically) as per DIN EN ISO 12944-4.

Zinc, Unplasticized/Rigid PVC:
Wash with ammoniacal wetting agent using abrasive pad as per BFS Data Sheet No. 5 and No. 22.

Clean with phosphoric acid solution using abrasive pad as per BFS Data Sheet No. 6.

Existing Paint Coatings:
Roughen/sand the surface and/or treat with alkali. Remove unstable existing coatings.

Method of Application

The product is applicable with brush or roller. Stir well before use and thin with Caparol AF-Verdünner (thinner) or a non-aromatic synthetic resin thinner, if necessary.
