Fields of application

The material can be used universally as a metallic effect lacquer for closed-pore structures in living areas. Its thixotropic flow behaviour facilitates the coating of vertical surfaces. It can also be used for the direct coating of suitable, cleaned and sanded foils.

Information on use

Drying 8 h / 20 °C
Stackable after > 16 h / 20 °C
Complete drying 1 d / 20 °C
Load bearing after 7 d / 20 °C
Surface preparation Clean, well-seasoned wood, or clean, suitable laminate base, free from oil, grease, wax and silicones. Sanded as prescribed and free from sanding dust. Matching pigment filler, sanded as prescribed and free from sanding dust.
Substrate sanding grits from-to 120 - 400
Finishing If absolute metal marking resistance and colour abrasion resistance or another gloss level is required, we recommend top coating with HE 6509x(gloss level), HDE 5400x(gloss level) or HDE 54799, for example. Recoating without intermediate sanding is only possible within 6 h (without forced drying). When top coating coloured lacquer surfaces there may be changes in the colour tone. Please apply a test coat!
Yield per coat 9 - 11 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.
Working Temperature Range 18 - 22 °C
Storage temperature 10 - 30 °C
Working temperature 20 °C
conditions of transport 10 - 30 °C
Processing instructions When directly coating cleaned or sanded foils, please apply a test coat to check the bonding!.
Clean tools with water. For removal of dried lacquer residues use Hesse HYDRO Cleaning agent HV 6917. In case of combined coatings (HYDRO- and solvent based lacquers) rinse application tools with Hesse HYDRO Reversing agent HV 6904. This product can be subjected to forced drying. Pre-priming is possible depending on the required finish and carrier material, for instance using: HP 6645-9343, HP 5640-9343, DP 4755-9343.
Particular instructions The material is supplied ready to use and only needs to be diluted in exceptional cases. If needed, add a maximum of 5 % water or a maximum of 3 % HZ Optimizer 70. This addition significantly reduces the thixotropy.
General instructions on workmanship When working with HYDRO materials, parts that come into contact with the material must be made from stainless steel. The moisture content should be between 8 - 12 %. Do not apply or dry HYDRO lacquers at material or room temperatures below 18 °C. The ideal humidity for application lies between 55 and 65 %. During the lacquering process, a humidity level that is too low leads to surface defects (such as shrink cracks, etc.). Excessive humidity during the drying phase may drastically lengthen the drying time! In order to avoid adhesion problems, please sand the lacquered surfaces freshly before coating and apply lacquer to the sanded surfaces as soon as possible. When applied to foils, etc., please use a sample coating on the respective substrate to check the adhesion! The ideal complete hardening of lacquered surfaces that have been flashed off is reached at temperatures over 20 °C up to no more than 40 °C. Adequate, draft-free air exchange must be assured. The complete hardening of the lacquer will be reached after one week of proper storage (at least 20 °C room temperature). Woods containing large amounts of natural oils, such as teak, can negatively influence adhesion under certain circumstances. Water-soluble wood ingredients such those in ash and tannins in woods such as oak may cause colour changes and discolourations in the coating. We recommend that you always conduct a sample lacquering to evaluate the colour effect, adhesion and drying process under real conditions!
