Processing instructions First mix the base lacquer with hardener and then add the metal powder by weight in a ratio of 80 parts of metal powder to 20 parts lacquer/hardener mixture and stir it in carefully without lumps. Apply the mixture in several layers with brief initial drying to reach a total of 800 - 1200 g/m². Subsequent additional manual application enables the creation of individual decors to suit requirements (intermediate drying 30 - 60 min / 20 °C). The maximum wet application amount when used as a low-flammable coating for seagoing vessels is 1000 g/m². Substrate treatment: pre-sand the basecoat or deviating substrate materials using 220 - 280 grit. In the case of direct coatings or on cleaned or sanded foils, please apply a test coating to check the adhesion!For more detailed product information and methods for using PU DECORATIVE-METAL, please use the link https://www.hesse-lignal.de/service/effekte/pu-decorative-metal.html to visit the new landing page on our website
Particular instructions This product may only be combined with other approved and technically suitable products when it is being used as a flame-retardant coating material for seagoing vessels according to the latest version of SOLAS 74/88 Regulations 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 choice of workpieces, preparation of the substrate, mixture and processing of the individual components and subsequent treatment of the coated surfaces require special knowledge. Your local sales representative will be happy to advise you. Pre-priming is possible depending on the required finish and carrier material, e.g. using DP 4755-9343 and DP 4791-9343 / DP 491-9343. Metals and metallic surfaces are subject to natural oxidation which may result in a change of colour. For cleaning and care we recommend the products indicated in our presentation. Other polishing and care products may cause changes in colour tone and effect. Coating after > 2 d with PU Cellulose lacquer will prevent oxidation and finger marks. Remove metal abrasion, waxes and polishing residues using special cleaner! “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!

The coating process and the precise treatment parameters are adapted in each case to the respective application and drying conditions and can be found in the customer-specific process descriptions (surface techniques).
