        Wood moisture content: 8-12%

      • Preparations

        Wash off greasy or resin-rich woods/substrates with WV-891 or V-890.

        Clean glass using V-890 or UN-894.

        Sand wood using P 100 - 180 grit.

        Sand panels using P 180 - 320 grit.

        Sand lacquer using P 240 - 320 grit.

        If colouring is desired, stain the substrate using Aqua KB-004, Aqua BB-007 or Aqua PB-006.

    • Application
      • Application requirements

        Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. +18 °C to max. +25 °C.

      • Stir well.

        Spray.

        Flow cup gun: nozzle size: 2.0 - 2.5 mm; atomiser air pressure: 2.0 - 3.0 bar.

        Airless spraying: nozzle size: 0.23 - 0.28 mm, material pressure: 80 - 120 bar.

        Airmix spraying: nozzle size: 0.23 - 0.28 mm, material pressure: 80 - 100 bar, atomiser air pressure: 1.2 - 2 bar.

        After drying and intermediate sanding (P 320 - 400), apply a second coat of the product.

        Repeat the process if necessary.

        Seal opened containers well and use contents as soon as possible.

    • Application instructions
      • Check colour, adhesion and compatibility with the substrate by setting up a trial area.

        For a transparent coating over surfaces coated with a coloured varnish, we recommend adding 5-10% Aqua Colour Varnish in the desired colour to the clear varnish.

      • Drying

        Dust-dry: after approx. 1 hour Can be overcoated: after approx. 4 hours Can be stacked: after drying overnight

        Practice values at +20 °C and 65% relative humidity.

        Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.

      • Thinning

        Ready to use; if necessary dilute with max. 5% water and/or add max. 3% V-490 as a retarding agent.

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • Airless/airmix spraying equipment, flow cup gun

      • Clean tools with water or Aqua RK-898 Cleaning Concentrate immediately after use.

        Ensure that any residue from cleaning is disposed of correctly.
