Suitable Substrates

Facade components made of coil coated metal sheets, galvanised sheet steel, zinc plates/sheets, aluminium sheets (Note: Do not apply on anodised aluminium), sheet copper, and rigid PVC, concrete and cement render/plaster. Due to rapid surface drying of Capalac Disbocolor 493 blistering/bubble formation may be caused through pores beneath the surface of concrete and cement render/plaster. This is physically unavoidable but does not affect the functionality of the coating. 
Do not use Capalac Disbocolor for roofing. The substrate must be dry, sound/stable, solid, and free from all substances that may prevent good adhesion.

Substrate Preparation

Sand and clean the primered surface.

Existing Coatings (e.g. Coil Coating):
Check for soundness and compatibility with Capalac Disbocolor 493. Clean stable substrates, e.g. with a high-pressure water-jet, removing all chalking substances. Remove unstable coatings by suitable means.

Method of Application

Capalac Disbocolor 493 is applied with a short pile roller for enamel coatings. The material is ready-for-use, but should be stirred well before applying.

The product cannot be applied via Spray Application!

An additional intermediate coat may be required for dark or deviant coloured substrates and colour shades of low opacity, e.g. yellow, red or orange.

Note: On powder coatings, coil-coated layers and other critical subtrates, adhesion must be tested in advance by establishing a trial coating area. An additional intermediate coat may be required for dark or deviant coloured substrates and colour shades of low opacity, e.g. yellow, red or orange.


Approx. 135 – 180 ml/m2 per coat. These reference values for consumption vary depending on the nature and condition of the substrate. Determine the exact amount of material required by coating a test area on site.

Do not apply more than 200 ml/m2 per coat!
