Capalac Seidenmatt-Buntlack

Silk-matt, coloured PU alkyd resin enamel.
Free of aromatic hydrocarbons.
For exterior and interior use.

  • LV Texte

    Field of Application

    Suitable for high-grade, silk-matt finishing coatings on dimensionally stable wooden parts, metal and unplastizised (rigid) PVC, in the exteriors and interiors. Also suitable for use on hot water radiators with the exception of white shades.
    Due to a typical odour of alkyd resin enamels, it is advisable to use Capacryl PU Satin for top coats on large-scale interior substrates instead.

    Material Properties

    • Non-aromatic solvent (free of aromatic hydrocarbons).
    • Excellent colour stability and gloss retention.
    • Long open-time.
    • 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 normal household cleaners (detergents) and short-term resistance against weak acids and alkalis.

    Material Base / Vehicle

    PU alkyd resin, solvent-based, free of aromatic hydrocarbons

    White (Weiß), RAL 3000, RAL 6005, RAL 6011, RAL 7001, RAL 7016, RAL 7035, RAL 8011, 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 Seidenmatt-Buntlack, Capalac AllGrund, Capalac Vorlack and Capalac Grundierweiß.

    Note: If necessary, apply a transparent sealing coat of Capalac Kunstharz-Klarlack (clear coat) on intensively or dark tinted Capalac enamel coatings in order to avoid a slightly abrasion of pigments.

    The typical yellowing of alkyd resins may occur and cannot be objected (caused by low UV radiation and white or bright colours, heat or chemical influences due to e.g. ammonia vapour from cleaning agents, adhesives, paint or sealing compounds).

    Colour Resistance according to BFS Data Sheet No. 26:
    Binder: Class B
    Pigmentation: Group 1 to 3, depending on the colour.

    Gloss Level

    Silk-matt (flat)/semi-gloss (mid sheen / velvet or eggshell-like finish)


    Keep cans/containers tightly closed and in a cool place.

    Suitable Substrates

    Primed and pre-coated wood, metal and unplasticised (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 NozzlePressureThinningHeating of Material
    0.009 - 0.013 inch150 bar-35 °C
    High Pressure
    (only suitable for RAL 9006 and 9007)
    1.6 mm2.5 bar+ 10% 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 Seidenmatt-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).

    RAL 9006 and 9007 / Specifics:
    An even surface is only achievable when using the high-pressure spray technique. On large, seamless surfaces sometimes a clouding effect cannot be avoided.
    Colour deviation may occur when RAL 9006 and RAL 9007 are applied with different coating methods, e.g. spray, roller or brush application.

    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. Follow the safety advice in Technical Information No. 093 (Capalac PU Hardener).

    1) Pretreat defects in existing enamel coatings according to substrate requirements.
    2) A transparent sealing is required for intensive colours to avoid abrasion of pigments.
    3) Do not apply white shades on radiators to avoid yellowing.
    Note: Adhesion must be tested in advance for powder coatings, coil coatings and other critical/problematic substrates by trial application.

    Application Conditions

    Lower Temperature Limit for Application and Drying:
    + 5 °C for material, substrate and ambient air.
    Relative humidity must not exceed 80 %.

    Drying/Drying Time

    after hours48 - 10248 - 16

    Lower temperatures and higher humidity or high amounts of applied material extend the drying time. The use of Capalac PU Hardener is essential for colours RAL 9006 and RAL 9007 to compensate delayed drying of both materials. Follow Safety Advice given in Technical Information No. 093.

    Tool Cleaning

    Immediately after use with white spirit.
