Diccoplast Elastic Primer

A two-component acid-catalyzed primer for exterior and interior surfaces.

The paint is solvent-borne
The coverage of the paint on rough surfaces
The coverage of the paint on smooth surfaces

Forms an elastic film

Diccoplast Elastic Primer is a two-component acid-catalyzed paint, which forms an elastic film and that's why is also suitable for exterior use as well.

Good humidity resistance 

Diccoplast Elastic Primer is a fast-drying paint with good filling and sanding properties. It also has a good humidity resistance.

Diccoplast Elastic Primer is mostly used for:

Stain, lacquer and paint systems for wood industries


Diccoplast Elastic Primer - Acid-catalyzed primer

Gloss groups Matt
Emission classification Emission levels of this paint fulfils the E1-classification. Paint has been tested according to EN 717-1, and formaldehyde emission is less than 0.124 mg/m3 air.

Recommended spreading amounts (unthinned)

Theoretical coverage




40–50 µm

100–120 g/m2

11–14 m2/l


Practical coverage depends on the application method, painting conditions and the shape and roughness of the surface to be coated.

Thinner 1027 and 1033
Mixing ratio Paint 100 parts by volume 691-series
Hardener 10 parts by volume 006 2098
Application method

Airless spraying, air assisted airless spraying and conventional spraying.


Application (+23 °C)

Airless application with the viscosity 25–50 s (DIN 4) can be reached with approximately 5–20 % of thinning. Nozzle tip 0.011"–0.015" and the nozzle pressure 80–180 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.


Air assisted airless application with the viscosity 25–50 s (DIN 4) can be reached with approximately 5–20 % of thinning. Nozzle tip 0.011"–0.015" and the 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.


Conventional application with the viscosity 20–50 s (DIN 4) can be reached with approximately 10–20 % thinning. Nozzle tip 1.4–1.8 mm and the nozzle pressure

2–3 bar.

Pot-life (+23°C) 48 hours.
Drying times

100–120 g/m²



Dry to touch, after

20–30 min

8–15 min

Dry to sand, after

1–2 h

30–40 min


Stacking temperature below 35ºC.


Drying and recoating times are related to the film thickness, temperature, the relative humidity of the air and ventilation.

Solids volume Volume solids 57±2 %
Weight solids 73±2 %

Product code 691-series

Application conditions The surface to be treated has to be clean and dry. During application and drying the temperature of the air, the surface to be treated and the primer has to be over +18ºC and the relative humidity of the air below 70%.
Preparation Wood material 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.
Painting Recommended topcoats: Diccoplast 30, Diccoplast 80, Diccoplast 30 Tix and Dicco Flex 30.
Mixing of components Stir the paint carefully before use. Add 10% by volume 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 370 g/litre of paint.
Maximum VOC content in ready to use paint (thinned 30% by volume) is 460 g/l.
VOC 2004/42/EC (catA/j) 500 g/l (2010).
