Thixotropic paint with good hiding properties

Dicco Flex 30 is a fast-drying elastic paint for exterior use. Due to its thixotropic, it can be applied on vertical surfaces without sagging. 

High durability

As a traditional acid-catalyzed paint Dicco Flex 30 has very good durability, and can be used especially for wooden window frames and front doors.



Dicco Flex 30 is mostly used for:




Stain, lacquer and paint systems for wood industries

Application method

Airless spraying, air-assisted airless spraying and conventional spraying.

 

Application (+23 °C)

For airless spraying, the product is thinned approximately 10–20% to the viscosity

25–50s (DIN 4). Nozzle tip 0.011"–0.015" and nozzle pressure 80–140 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.

 

For air assisted airless spraying, the product is thinned approximately 10–20% to the viscosity 25–50s (DIN 4). Nozzle tip 0.011"–0.015" and nozzle pressure 40–120 bar. Atomising air pressure should be about 1–3 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.

 

For conventional spraying, the product is thinned approximately 10–20% to the viscosity 20–25s (DIN 4). Nozzle tip 1.4–1.8 mm and the nozzle pressure 2–3 bar.

APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions The surface to be painted has to be clean and dry. During application and drying the temperature of the air, the surface to be treated and the paint has to be over +18ºC and the relative humidity of the air below 70 %.
Preparation Wood surfaces must be sanded with sanding paper P150–240. Sanding between primer and top coat can be done with sanding paper P240–400. All sanding dust must be removed before painting.
Priming Recommended primers: Diccoplast Elastic Primer and Diccodur Primer.
Mixing of components Stir the paint carefully before use. Add 10 volume % of Hardener 006 2098 and mix again carefully. Thin the paint to the viscosity required with Thinner 1027 or 1033.

Do not use iron containers as mixing container. Instead use plastic, enamel or acid resistant steel containers.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 1027 or 1033.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 390 g/litre of paint mixture.
VOC content of the paint mixture (thinned 20 % by volume) is 480 g/l.
VOC 2004/42/EC (catA/j) 500 g/l (2010).

HEALTH AND SAFETY LABELLING
according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008
Containers are provided with safety labels, which should be observed. Further information about hazardous influences and protection are detailed in individual health and safety data sheets. A health and safety data sheet is available on request from Tikkurila Oyj. For industrial and professional use only.
