Processing instructions Add hardener slowly whilst stirring. Adjust the spray viscosity with water if required. Maximum additive volume 5 %. The hardener must always be added before thinning! Never store product mixed with hardener in closed containers. Over-paintability: possible with another coat of the same product or with suitable colourless materials. 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.
Particular instructions The product can be used on surfaces that have been bleached with hydrogen peroxide and thoroughly dried. Pre-priming on tanning-rich woods such as oak with HDG 5410. Beware! Do not sand through the basecoat as there is a risk of staining.
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!
