General instructions on workmanship

PU lacquers should not be applied or dried at material and room temperatures of less than 18 °C and 40 % RH, ideal values: 20 - 25 °C, 50 - 65 % RH. Deviations will result in drying or curing errors. Mixed residues from the previous day must only be used as a 10 - 20 % aggregate in a fresh lacquer/hardener mixture. Old lacquer/hardener mixtures impair the surface quality (adhesion/stability). Freshly bleached woods must undergo intermediate drying for at least 48 h / 20 °C before overpainting with PU lacquers. If stored correctly (at least 20 °C room temperature), complete hardening of the coating is achieved after a week. Please test the lacquer under real conditions!
