Field of ApplicationHigh-quality coloured paint/top-coat lacquer for finishing gloss coats on dimensionally stable wooden component parts, metals and unplasticized (rigid) PVC, in exteriors and interiors. Also suitable for use on hot water radiators with the exception of white colour shades.
Due to a material typical odour of alkyd enamels (alkyd resin varnishes), it is advisable to use Capacryl PU-Gloss for top coats on large, seamless interior surfaces instead.
- Non-aromatic solvent (free of aromatic hydrocarbons).
- Excellent colour stability and gloss retention.
- High gloss finished.
- Long open time.
- High stability (low sagging).
- Excellent opacity, high covering power on edges.
- High impact strength and shock resistance.
- Elegant and easy application.
- Superior flow.
- Resistant to common household cleaning agents (detergents) and short-term resistance against weak acids and alkalis.
Material Base / VehicleSilicone alkyd resin, solvent-based, free of aromatic hydrocarbons.

More colour shades can be tinted via ColorExpress (Capalac mix).
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. Priming System colours are available via the ColorExpress tinting technique for the following products: Capalac Hochglanz-Buntlack, Capalac AllGrund and Capalac Vorlack.
Note: A material typical yellowing effect may occur on the surface of white and light-coloured alkyd enamels (caused by low UV radiation, heat or chemical influences due to e.g. ammonia vapour from detergents, adhesives, paint or sealing compounds). This yellowing is no product defect and cannot be objected.
Colour Resistance according to BFS Data Sheet No. 26:
Binder: Class B
Pigmentation: Group 1 to 3, depending on the colour.
StorageKeep in a cool place.
Keep cans/containers always tightly closed.

|(–) inapplicable / (○) of limited suitability / (+) suitable|
Suitable SubstratesPrimed and pre-coated wood, metal and unplasticized (rigid) PVC.
Do not apply on andonized 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 %.
Roughening and cleaning the primered surface.
Method of ApplicationGuidelines for Spray Application:
|Ø Nozzle||Pressure||Thinning/Dilution||Heating of Material|
|Aircoat TempSpray✱||0,009 - 0,013 inch||150 bar||-||35 °C|
(only suitable for RAL 9006 and 9007)
|1.6 mm||2.5 bar||+ 10% Capalac PU hardener and up to 25-30 % AF-thinner, if necessary; viscosity DIN 4 mm: approx. 45 seconds||20 °C|
Capalac Hochglanz-Buntlack is applied by enamel paint brush, roller or spraying equipment. Stir well before use.
Aircoat spray application of material in delivered consistency is possible by heating (TempSpray).
Application of RAL 9006 and 9007:
An even surface can only be achieved with high-pressure spraying equipment, but sometimes a slight clouding/blushing effect may be noticeable, when the material is applied on large, seamless surfaces.
Colour differences may occur, when different application methods are used.
10 % of PU hardener must be added to the material, when standard colours RAL 9006 and RAL 9007 are to be applied, because these two colour variations of the product are special 2-component enamels/varnishes.
Follow the safety advice in Technical Information No. 093 (Capalac PU Hardener).

Determine the exact amount of material required by coating a test area on site.
Application ConditionsLower Temperature Conditions for Application and Curing:
Min. 5 °C for product, ambient air and substrate.

Lower temperatures and higher humidity or higher quantities of applied material extend the drying time.
The use of Capalac PU Hardener (PU-Härter) is essential for colours RAL 9006 and RAL 9007 to compensate delayed drying of both materials. It is mandatory to follow the Safety Advice given in Technical Information No. 093.
Tool CleaningImmediately after use with white spirit.
