Complete drying 7 d / 20 °C
Surface preparation Clean, dry wood, dependent upon wood type and method of application.
Substrate sanding grits from-to 150 - 180
Lacquer sanding (grit) from - to 320 - 400
Finishing After sufficient drying, can be re-coated using suitable light-fast Hesse polyurethane multi-coat, top coat and brilliant lacquers. (e.g. DE 4259x(gloss level), DE 4503x(gloss level), DU 4294x(gloss level) and DU 45229)

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.
Storage temperature 16 - 25 °C
Working temperature 20 °C
Processing instructions Forced drying is possible at up to 50 °C.
Particular instructions Mix with 20 % to 30 % DV 4994 thinner to apply as an MDF edge sealant beneath coloured lacquer systems. After sufficient drying and proper slight sanding, the basecoat can subsequently be coated with products of the DE 4259x(gloss level) and DE 4503x(gloss level) range, or with Hesse PU Diamond top coat DU 4294x(gloss level) for especially scratch resistant surfaces.
General instructions on workmanship PU lacquers should not be applied and dried at material and room-temperatures below 18 °C and 40 % RH. Ideal values are: 20 - 25 °C, 50 - 65 % RH. Deviations will result in drying or hardening errors. In order to avoid adhesion problems, please sand the PU lacquered surfaces before applying fresh lacquer and apply lacquer to the sanded surfaces as soon as possible. Old lacquer and hardener mixtures affect the surface quality (adhesion/resistance). Freshly bleached substrates must undergo intermediate drying for at least 48 h at 20 °C before coating with suitable PU lacquers. If stored correctly (at least 20 °C room temperature), the final hardness of the coating is achieved after a week.
Please apply a test coat under real conditions!On MDF substrates: Thick boards that have been created by gluing together several thinner boards are, due to the variance in tension, susceptible to edge ridging. It is better to select a single MDF board of the appropriate thickness. Panels that have been glued together should always be sanded flat at the edges and colourlessly pre-insulated. Any water introduced by gluing must be allowed to evaporate prior to coating.

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).
