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.
Processing instructions FANTASTIC-CLEAR can optionally be applied in a mixing ratio (by volume) of 5 : 1 with PU Hardener DR 4070. FANTASTIC-CLEAR dries to be slightly more glossy in this hardening. A more matt gloss level should be selected as necessary.
Hardening using PU Hardener DR 4076-0001 in a mixing ratio (by volume) of 5 : 1, after adding 5 % Glass lacquer additive EL 460-0025 to the lacquer components, enables direct coating on glass. The glass surface to be coated must first be properly cleaned using Cleaning thinner ZD 101.
This product must only be combined with other approved and technically suitable products when used as a flame retardant coating material for seagoing vessels according to the latest version of SOLAS 74/88 Reg. II-2/3, II-2/5 and II-2/6, IMO Resolution MSC.36(63)-(1994 HSC-Code) 7 and IMO Resolution MSC.97(73)-(2000 HSC-Code) 7. The maximum application amount in wet film when using this product as a flame retardant coating material for seagoing vessels is 240 g/m². This product is only suitable as a flame retardant coating for seagoing vessels when the default hardening is used, not the optional hardenings!
Particular instructions FANTASTIC-CLEAR DE 4877x(gloss level) should not be mixed with the FANTASTIC-CLEAR ULTRAMATT DE 48770-0 range! Mixing these two lacquer systems may result in incompatibility reactions or alterations in the respective product properties.
Colour lacquers UNA-COLOR DB 4524x(gloss level)-(colour tone) and FANTASTIC-COLOR DB 4888x(gloss level)-(colour tone) can be used as glazing lacquers to tint FANTASTIC-CLEAR DE 4877x(gloss level) (maximum addition 1.5 %). Depending on the substrate material and desired surface, the following Basecoats can be used in combination with FANTASTIC-CLEAR: DG 434 / DG 4734, DG 417 / DG 4717-0005, DG 468-1 / DG 4768-0011 and DG 4750.
FANTASTIC-CLEAR has been tested according to the standard test procedure of the American Society for Testing and Materials ASTM D7027-20 to determine its scratch resistance. The tested sample of DE 48770 did not show any scratches at a load of 700 g.
“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 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!
