Guiding data for airless spray
Nozzle tip 0.021–0.027″
Spray angle degrees 65–80°
Pressure at nozzle 140 – 190 kg/cm² (2100 psi)
Cleaning of painting tools : Water.
Film thickness per coat
Typical recommended range
Dry film thickness 25 – 35 μm
Wet film thickness 140 – 200 μm
Film thickness will vary and is calculated as average. Film thickness per coat values are presented here.
Theoretical spreading rate 14.5 – 10.5 m²/l
Spreading rate depends on film thickness applied, type of texture, surface porosity, imperfections, temperature, wastage during painting etc.
Maximum spread rate per coat is obtained at minimum dry film thickness and vice versa.
Thinner : Water.
Dilution : Maximum 40 %.
Conditions during application
The temperature of the substrate should be minimum 10 °C and at least 3 °C above the dew point of the air, measured in the vicinity of the substrate. Good ventilation is usually required in confined areas to ensure proper drying.
Drying times are generally related to air circulation, temperature, film thickness and number of coats, and will
be affected correspondingly.
1. Recommended data given is, for recoating with the same generic type of paint.
2. In case of multi-coat application, drying times will be influenced by the number and sequence and by the
total thickness of previous coats applied.
3. The surface should be dry and free from any contamination prior to application of the subsequent coat.
The drying time is measured by stated values:
Relative Humidity (RH) 50 % Substrate temperature 10 °C 23 °C 40 °C
Surface (touch) dry 6 h 3 h 1 h
Hard dry 12 h 5 h 3 h
Dry to over coat, minimum 6 h 3 h 1 h
Directions for use
The substrate must be sound, clean, dry and free from dust, oil, grease, laitance etc. All traces of form release agents/curing agents must be removed. A light sanding with suitable abrasive material is recommended before application. Any resulting dust/loose particles must be removed.
Remarks : As a primer for textured topcoats in the ‘World of Textures’. Other systems may be specified, depending on area of use. Contents of packaging with different batch numbers must be mixed together before use. Please refer to the Decorative Sales Department for technical advice.
The product must be stored in accordance with national regulations. Keep the containers in a dry, cool, well ventilated space and away from sources of heat and ignition. Containers must be kept tightly closed. Handle with care.
