  • Thinning: Not recommended.
  • Cleaning: Remove as much of the product as possible from the application equipment before cleaning with water when wet, ProGold Lacquer Thinners when dry.

Conditions:

  • Temperature between 5°C and 40°C.
  • Relative humidity of less than 85%, preferably between 10: 00 and 16: 00.

  • If possible away from direct sunlight.

Drying time: 
24-48 hours at 23°C depending on weather conditions. 
Note: 
 Higher temperatures will accelerate the drying times (approximately halved for every 10°C increase), whilst lower temperatures will retard the drying time (approximately doubled for every 10°C decrease).

Recoating time: 24 hours at 23°C.

Requirements: Two coats at 1-2m²/litre per coat. Second coat needs to be applied perpendicular to the first coat.
