Particular instructions The equalising effect is only obtained by direct coating of the wood. Do not sand through the lacquer product! For an additionally strong brightening effect, please apply Hesse PU Natural Wood Effect DA 400-1. After suitable drying (at least 48 h / 20 °C) and proper sanding, DA 408-0 can be over-painted once, e.g. with Hesse UNA-PUR DE 55x(gloss level) or Hesse MEGA-PUR DE 56x(gloss level).
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!
