Particular instructions

Our dull matt formulation DE 45320-0004 is not to be used as a multicoat lacquer, but only as a single coating on top of matching base coats or on the next higher gloss level in the DE 4532x(gloss level)-0004 series!

When being used as a flame-retardant coating agent for seagoing vessels as per SOLAS 74/88 Regulations II-2/3, II-2/5 and II-2/6, in the latest version, IMO Resolution MSC.36(63)-(1994 HSC-Code) 7 and IMO Resolution MSC.97(73)-(2000 HSC-Code) 7, this product may only be combined with other approved and technically suitable products.. For use as MDF edge isolation underneath coloured coating systems, prepare the mixture with 20 - 30% Thinner DV 4900 and apply an additional coat on the same day following prior sanding using 320 grit. This product can be used as a top coat on coloured polyurethane lacquers to improve metal marking resistance. “A risk assessment was undertaken according to Directive 2014/90/EU, Annex II, Section 3. This coating does not pose a physical risk to health nor a risk to the environment when cured and dried.”

General instructions on workmanship

PU lacquers should not be applied or dried at material and room temperatures below 18 °C and 40 % ambient humidity, ideal values: 20 - 25 °C and 50 - 65 % RH. Deviations lead to problems with drying and/or curing. To avoid adhesion problems, please gently sand back the PU lacquered surfaces before applying fresh lacquer and apply lacquer to the sanded surfaces as soon as possible. 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 wood must be allowed at least 48 h intermediate drying / 20 °C before recoating with PU lacquers. The final hardness of the coating is achieved after one week in correct storage conditions (at least 20 °C room temperature).
Please apply a test coat under real conditions!
