Surface preparation
The surface preparation is crucial in ensuring good coat bonding. When lacquering glass, we recommend using Hesse glass cleaning agent ZD 101.
Comments on sanding If the Hesse PU Special primer DG 4744 is not applied to glass, a carrier sanding of grit 280 - 400 is recommended. Please apply a test coat under real conditions!
Yield per coat 5 - 10 m²/l

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.
Storage temperature 16 - 25 °C
Working temperature 20 °C
Particular instructions Hesse PU effect structures behind glass, such as marble or raindrop effects, must be applied in reverse order. For final lacquering, the UNA-COLOR should also be hardened with glass lacquer hardener DR 4076-0001 at a mixing ratio (by volume) of 5 : 1.
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!
