|(–) inapplicable / (○) of limited suitability / (+) suitable|
Suitable SubstratesPrimed and pre-painted, dimensionally stable wooden parts, metal and unplasticized (rigid) PVC.
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 %.
Sand the surface in fibre direction, clean thoroughly, remove exuding/seeping wood contents, e.g. wood resin/rosin and resin galls, cut sharp edges (see BFS Data Sheet No. 18).
Derust to industry standard SA 2 1/2 (blasting) or ST3 (mechanically) according to DIN EN ISO 12944-4.
Zinc/Galvanised Surfaces, Unplasticized (Rigid) PVC:
Wash with light ammonia solution using sanding pad according to BFS Data Sheets Nos. 5 and 22.
Aluminium (not anodised):
Clean with nitro-thinner or phosphoric acid solution using sanding pad according to BFS Data Sheet No. 6.
Existing Coats of Paint:
Sand the surface of existing coats slightly and/or treat with alkali. Remove unstable coatings.
Mixing RatioAdd 10 % by volume of Capalac PU-Härter/Hardener and mix thoroughly.
Follow Technical Information No. 093 Capalac PU Härter/Hardener.
Method of Application
Guidelines for Spray Application:
|Ø Nozzle||Pressure||Thinning||DIN 4 mm Consistency|
|High pressure||Nacreous lustre||1.3–1.5 mm||3–4 bar||25 % by vol.||approx. 65 sec|
|Metallic||1.3–1.5 mm||3–4 bar||25 % by vol.||approx. 28 sec|
|Low pressure||Nacreous lustre||1.3 mm||0.5 bar||25 % by vol.||approx. 28 sec|
|Metallic||1.3 mm||0.5 bar||25 % by vol.||approx. 28 sec|
Optimum result is achievable with high or low pressure spray application. Roller application on small surfaces is also possible. The surface to be coated must be absolutely free of fats/greases, oils, hand perspiration (wear protective gloves, if necessary). Priming with Capalac Vorlack (undercoat) is essential, tinted to match the finishing coat in shade.
Thin with Caparol AF-Verdünner/Thinner to spray consistency (see table above). Spray a first, thin-film cross coat with reduced material flow. Allow to flash off for approx. 7 to 10 minutes (at 20 °C and 65 % relative humidity), then cross spray again. A blushing effect may occur on large-sized surfaces.
Adjust the material with approx. 5 to 10 % by volume with Caparol AF-Verdünner/Thinner to working consistency. Apply evenly by brush or use non fluff forming Mohair/velour roller (e.g. Storch paint roller Velour, article no. 156115). Allow to flash off for approx. 5 to 7 minutes at 20 °C and 65 % relative humidity, then treat again with a foam plastic roller (evenly, in one direction). Slight blushing and ropiness/streakiness (noticeable marks) may occur, when the material is roller applied.

|✱||Two intermediate coats are required on dimensionally stable wooden parts (according to BFS Data Sheet No. 18). |
Note: Adhesion must be tested in advance for powder coatings, coil coatings and other critical/problematic substrates by coating a test area on site.
Approx. 150–180 ml/m2 per coat.
Approx. 120 ml/m2 per coat.
Consumption is only a reference value and influenced by the substrate condition, e.g. roughness, absorbency, etc.
Determine the exact amount of material required by coating a test area on site.
WorkabilityPot life (workability) at +20 °C: 8 hours.
Note: The end of pot life is not noticeable.
Application ConditionsLower Temperature Limit for Application and Drying:
+ 5 °C for product, substrate and ambient air.
|At 20 °C and 65 % relative humidity||dust dry||dry to touch||recoatable|
|after hours||4||8 - 10||24||8 - 16|
Lower temperatures and higher humidity or higher film thickness (high amount of applied material) extend the drying time.
Tool CleaningImmediately after use with white spirit.
