  • LV Texte

    Field of Application

    High-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.

    Material Properties

    • 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.
    • Fast-drying.
    • Superior flow.
    • Resistant to common household cleaning agents (detergents) and short-term resistance against weak acids and alkalis.

    Material Base / Vehicle

    Silicone alkyd resin, solvent-based, free of aromatic hydrocarbons.

    Packaging/Package Size

    Standard Colours:
    125 ml, 375 ml, 750 ml, 2.5 litres   
    not all standard colours are available in all package sizes.

    375 ml, 750 ml, 2.5 litres, 10 litres


    Standard Colours:
    White (Weiß), RAL 3000, RAL 5010, RAL 6011, RAL 7001, RAL 7035, RAL 8017, RAL 9001, RAL 9002, RAL 9005 and effect colours RAL 9006 White Aluminium (Weißaluminium) and RAL 9007 Grey Aluminium (Graualuminium)

    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.

    Suitable Substrates

    Primed 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 %.

    Substrate Preparation

    Roughening and cleaning the primered surface.

    Method of Application

    Guidelines for Spray Application:
    Ø NozzlePressureThinning/DilutionHeating of Material
    Aircoat TempSpray0,009 - 0,013 inch150 bar-35 °C
    High Pressure
    (only suitable for RAL 9006 and 9007) 
    1.6 mm2.5 bar+ 10% Capalac PU hardener and up to 25-30 % AF-thinner, if necessary; viscosity DIN 4 mm: approx. 45 seconds20 °C
    Unsuitable for metallic tints RAL 9006 and RAL 9007.

    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).

    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 Cleaning

    Immediately after use with white spirit.
