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 Diccoplast Primer and Dicco Surf.
Application For airless spraying, the product is thinned approximately 10–20% to the viscosity
20–40s (DIN4). Recommended nozzle tip is 0.011"–0.015" and 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 5–20% to the viscosity 25–50s (DIN4). Recommended nozzle tip is 0.011"–0.015" and pressure
40–120 bar. Atomising 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 5–10% to the viscosity 40–60s (DIN4). Recommended nozzle tip is 1.4–1.8 mm and nozzle pressure 2–3 bar.

For curtain coating the product is thinned approximately 5–10% to the viscosity
40–60s (DIN4). Avoid too high pumping pressure and flowing speed.
Mixing of components Stir the paint carefully before use. Add 14 volume-% of Hardener 006 2098. Thin the paint to the viscosity required with Thinner 1035 or 1058.

Do not use iron containers as mixing container. Instead use plastic, enamel or acid resistant steel containers.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 1035 or 1058.
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 20% by volume) is 463 g/l.
VOC 2004/42/EC (catA/j) 500 g/l (2010).
