Airless, air assisted airless and conventional spraying.
Application (+23 °C)
Airless application with the viscosity 20–45 s (DIN 4) can be reached with approximately 5–20 % of thinning. Nozzle tip 0.011"–0.015" and the nozzle pressure 100–160 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.
Air assisted airless application with the viscosity 20–45 s (DIN 4) can be reached with approximately 5–20 % of thinning. Nozzle tip 0.011"–0.015" and the nozzle pressure 40–140 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 20–45 s (DIN 4) can be reached with approximately 5–20 % thinning. Nozzle tip 1.4–1.8 mm is recommended to be used with pressure 2–3 bar.
|Pot-life (+23°C)||48 hours.|
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 50±2 %
Weight solids 57±2 %
|Product code||005 2704|
|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 lacquer has to be over 18 ºC and the relative humidity of the air below 70 %.|
|Priming||Recommended primers: Merit Sanding, Merit 20, Merit 30, Merit 80, Merit Sealer.|
|Surface treatment||Wood surfaces should be sanded with sanding paper P150–240. Primer surfaces should be sanded with sanding paper P240–400. All sanding dust must be removed before lacquering.|
|Mixing of components||Stir the lacquer carefully before use. Add 10 volume % of Hardener 006 2098. Thin the lacquer to the viscosity required. In case the lacquer mixture is used on the next day, add at least an equal amount of fresh mixture.
Do not use iron containers as mixing container. Instead use plastic, enamel or acid resistant steel containers.
|Cleaning of tools||Thinner 1033 or 1027.|
|EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value||The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 420 g/litre of paint.
VOC content of the paint mixture (thinned 20 % by volume) is 500 g/l.
