Finishing Temathane and Temadur.
Painting By airless or conventional spray. In order to obtain an even, non-porous finish, spray a misty coat: first a thin layer, then let the solvents evaporate for 5 - 30 minutes and then apply the full coat. Depending on the application method and the termperature of the components (base, hardener, thinner) the paint can be thinned 0 - 15 %. Airless spray nozzle tip 0.011" - 0.013" and nozzle pressure 120 - 160 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.
Mixing of components First stir base and hardener separately. The correct proportions of base and hardener must be mixed thoroughly before use. Use Temaspeed Squirrel Mixer for mixing.
Cleaning of tools Thinner 1048, 1067 or 1061.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 330 g/litre of paint.
VOC content in paint (thinned 15 % by volume) is 410 g/l.
