Field of ApplicationSuitable for high-quality finishing (top) coats on wood, metals and unplasticized/rigid PVC, exteriors and interiors. Do not use on heating systems.
Due to the product typical odour of alkyd enamels (alkyd resin varnishes), it is advisable to use Capacryl PU-Satin for top coats on large-scale, seamless interior surfaces instead.
- High degree of whiteness
- Noble silk-matt finish
- Long open time
- High stability (low sagging)
- Excellent opacity (hiding/covering power), even on edges
- High impact strength and shock resistance
- Easy and elegant to apply
- Excellent flow
- Resistant to common household detergents and short-term resistance against weak acids and alkalis
- High weather and light resistance
Material Base / Vehicle
Polyurethane alkyd resin, solvent-based, free of aromatic hydrocarbons.
- White: 375 ml, 750 ml, 2,5 litres
- Off-White: 2,5 litres
ColoursWhite (Weiß), Off-White (Altweiß)
The typical yellowing effect on the surface of white and light-coloured alkyd enamels may occur (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
Silk-matt/semi-gloss (mid sheen / velvet or eggshell-like finish)
Keep in a cool place, in tightly closed cans/containers.
DensityApprox. 1.2 g/cm³

Prepare and prime defects according to substrate requirements
|if necessary: |
Advice: Adhesion must be tested in advance for powder coatings, coil coatings and other critical/problematic substrates by a trial coating.

|Applied quantity ml/m2 per coat||80 - 100||70 - 90||100 - 120|
Consumption is only a guide value and may vary, depending on substrate requirements.
Determine the exact amount of material required by coating a test area on site.
Application ConditionsLower Temperature Limit for Application and Drying:
+5 °C for product, substrate and ambient air.
Relative humidity must not exceed 80 %.
At 20 °C and 65 % relative humidity.
|dust dry||touch dry||recoatable (brush)||recoatable (spray)|

Lower temperatures, higher humidity and higher quantities of applied material extend the drying time.
Tool CleaningImmediately after use with white spirit.
