Processing instructions The crack formation of Hesse Icecrack ZD 3993 depends on the application quantity and the drying of the selected Hesse colour lacquer. The thinner the lacquer application of ZD 3993, the finer the desired cracks will be. Icecrack ZD 3993 should be applied to the color lacquer without lacquer sanding within 2 to 5 h / 20 °C. The addition of 5% Retarder DV 4909 to the lacquer / hardener mixture is required for larger areas.
