Hesse DIACOLOR Colour lacquer HUB 88x(gloss level)-(colour tone)

  • A lacquer for lacquering systems and for applying coatings to components with the conventional manual spraying process
  • Saves on storage and handling expenses
  • Excellent opacity
  • two-component
  • Processing with and without UV curing
Hesse DIACOLOR is a colour lacquer which can be applied using various methods. The lacquer is ideally applied in industrial applications using a spraying unit with subsequent drying and UV activation systems. It is however possible to apply DIACOLOR like a conventional 2-component water-based lacquer in manual spray stations and without special drying equipment. This occurs especially when components will not fit through industrial systems. The remarkable feature of the lacquer is that the final result is nearly identical in both colour tone and gloss level. The benefits are therefore obvious: you only need one lacquer for multiple fields of application and can enjoy large savings on storage and handling costs.

Information on use

Usage time 4 h / 20 °C with a mixture of 20 : 1 (by volume) with Hardener HDR 5086
Stackable after Directly after UV curing and sufficient cooling.
Curing Pigmented lacquers are cured using a combination of gallium and mercury lamps. Sufficient radiation energy must be provided. This depends primarily on the type, conditions, age and design of the lamp system, so that the optimum UV lamp settings can be implemented on the respective system, and the curing should be checked. Your Hesse representative will assist you with the determination of the necessary radiant energy. Components processed using the manual spray process do not require UV curing, especially if the component will not fit through the lacquering and drying unit.
Mechanical drying Array
Surface preparation The substrate must be dry, dust-free and grease-free. We recommend the following primers as a substrate: HUP 8848-9010. MDF panels can also be coated with suitable melamine foil.
Substrate sanding grits from-to 280 - 400
Lacquer sanding (grit) from - to 320 - 600
Finishing After UV curing and intermediate sanding back, a subsequent coat of a matching product from the Hesse HYDRO range can be applied to this lacquer.
Comments on sanding Sanded lacquer layers and surfaces must be coated directly.
Yield per coat 8 - 11 m²/l

The spreading rate is heavily dependent on the type of application. The specifications relate to a liter of ready-for-use product, if necessary including hardener and thinner.
Working Temperature Range 15 - 35 °C
Storage temperature 10 - 25 °C
Working temperature 20 °C
conditions of transport frost-free - up to a maximum of 35 °C
Processing instructions Hardener should normally be added in a slow stream while stirring; only after that should the lacquer be diluted, if necessary. Working viscosity can be adjusted with water or HYDRO Optimizer HZ 79 (maximum 3 % by volume). For manual application, e.g. using a cup gun, the working viscosity should be adjusted by adding 2 - 3 % water to the lacquer/hardener mixture. Remove dried-on lacquer residues with special thinner ZD 82. For strip cleaning, we recommend the HYDRO Cleaner HY 6995 at a mixing ratio of 1 : 10 with water. Can also be finished with 2 C lines.
Particular instructions Always seal opened containers light-tight and air-tight to prevent skin forming. Remove dried lacquer residue using a sieve. Products in containers should be sieved before application. Never store product mixed with hardener in closed containers. The chemical resistance of DIN 68861 1B is achieved when processed in industrial systems with UV dryers. If processed without UV hardening, the chemical resistance of DIN 68861 1C will be achieved.
General instructions on workmanship When applying HYDRO materials, parts that come into contact with the material must be made from non-rusting material. The wood moisture content should be between 8 and 12 %. Stir the material well before application. Do not apply or dry HYDRO lacquers at material or room-temperatures below 18 °C. The ideal ambient humidity for application lies between 55 and 65 %. A humidity level that is too low leads to shrink cracks during the lacquering process; humidity that is too high hinders drying. Please freshly sand the lacquered surfaces before coating and apply lacquer to the sanded surfaces as soon as possible to prevent adhesion problems. When applied on laminates, etc., please use a sample coating on the respective substrate to check the adhesion! Final hardness of the coating is achieved after a week if stored at a minimum of 20 °C room temperature. Woods with rich contents, such as teak, may have an adverse effect on adhesion. Water-soluble ingredients in woods such as ash and tannins in woods such as oak may cause colour changes and discolorations in the coating. Always conduct a sample lacquering to evaluate the colour effect, adhesion and drying process under practical conditions.

The coating process and the precise treatment parameters are adapted in each case to the respective application and drying conditions and can be found in the customer-specific process descriptions (surface techniques).
