Application conditions The surface to be treated has to be clean and dry. The moisture content of wood has to be below 20%. During application and drying temperature of the air, substrate and paint must be over +18°C and relative humidity of the air below 70%. Good ventilation is required to ensure optimal result. Product can be dried with or without oven.
Preparation Remove dust, loose particles and other impurities from the surface. Wood surfaces must be sanded with sandpaper P150–320. Sanding prior to the next application with sandpaper P240–400. All sanding dust must be removed.
Painting Recommended topcoats:
Akvi Top DS 25, Diccoplast 30, Luminol 2S and Luminol SP 2S.
Application For airless spraying, the product is thinned approximately 0–10% to the viscosity
40–80s (DIN4). Recommended nozzle tip is 0.011"–0.015"and pressure 100–160 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.

For air-assisted airless spraying, the product is thinned approximately 0–10% to the viscosity 40–80s (DIN4). Recommended nozzle tip is 0.011"–0.015" and 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 0–10% to the viscosity 40–80 (DIN4). Recommended nozzle tip is 1.4–1.8 mm and pressure 2–3 bar.
