Product Description
The Aqua premium system is an innovative water-soluble basepaint system. The mixing system contains all solid and effect color shades for vehicle repair paintwork.
Properties:
Easy and to quick process
Even impact alignment ensures high certainty of outcome
Short process times
Easy and safe painting
Various application possibilities (interior, multiple-coat and multi-color coats)
Application Instructions
Base Surface
Suitable base surfaces:
Primed and filled surfaces (two-part HS filler)
Intact old paint
For plastic surfaces, Glazing Adhesion Promoter -ALO 822 000 10- + two-part HS filler (elasticized)
with Two-Part Plastic Adhesive Filler -LKF 696 009 A2-/-LKF 696 040 A2- insulated base surfaces on plastic surfaces
See special instructions → Anchor.
   
Pre-treatment of base surfaces:
–  Clean the factory or old paint or two-part HS filler thoroughly with Silicone Remover -LVM 020 000 A5- or Silicone Remover, Long -LVM 020 100 A5-.
 

Aqua Premium System

–  Dry-sand with rotary sander and dust extraction, P500-600 grit.
 

Aqua Premium System

–  Or “wet”-sand with P800-1000 sandpaper.
 

Aqua Premium System

–  Use a suitable cleaning agent before reworking to ensure a clean and residue-free surface.
–  Wipe off any residual silicone remover with a lint-free cloth, leaving no streaks.
Special Instructions
Sanded-through areas must be insulated with One-Part Wash Primer -LVM 044 007 A2-/-LVM 044 171 A2-. The sanded-through areas should not be larger than 5.0 cm in diameter.
When using the two-part HS filler, any bare areas must be insulated with Two-Part Wash Primer -LHV 043 000 A2- or One-Part Wash Primer -LVM 044 007 A2-/-LVM 044 171 A2-.
Standard Application Processing
Mixing vessels:
Plastic containers or tin-coated cans painted on the inside
Strainers:
Filter watery base paint through water-tight, 125 µm strainers before working with cup systems.
Additives:
(at a normal/high temperature and low humidity depending on the respective object size)
Additive for Aqua Premium -LVM 035 200 A3-
Additive for Aqua Premium -LVM 035 301 A3-
Use Aqua premium standard measuring stick.
  Note
After adding additive, use the material within 24 hours.
 

Aqua Premium System

Application type “coat”
 

Aqua Premium System

–  Processing viscosity at +20 °C (68 °F) material temperature is the mixing viscosity for “Compliant” and “HVLP”.
 

Aqua Premium System

–  For solid colors, add 10 % Additive for Aqua Premium -LVM 035 200 A3/LVM 035 301 A3- at +20 °C (68 °F) material temperature.
–  For metallic/pearl effect colors, add 20 % Additive for Aqua Premium -LVM 035 200 A3/LVM 035 301 A3- at +20 °C (68 °F) material temperature.
 

Aqua Premium System

–  Set spray nozzle (see manufacturer's information): “Compliant” 1.2 to 1.3 mm.
–  Set spray nozzle (see manufacturer's information): “HVLP” WSB/1.3 mm.
–  Set spray pressure (see manufacturer's information): “Compliant” to 2.0 bar.
–  Set atomizing pressure (see manufacturer's information): “HVLP” 0.7 bar.
 

Aqua Premium System

–  One application consists of 1.5 spray applications. Apply a normal spray application, then apply a “finish spray application”/effect spray application.
  Note
For colors with poor covering properties, after allowing for ventilation it may be necessary to apply another spray application (“wet” in “wet”).
 

Aqua Premium System

Drying
 

Aqua Premium System

The ventilation time for a clear coat application should be long enough for the surface to become completely matted.
Recommended layer thicknesses:
12-25 µm for solid colors
10-15 µm for metallic colors
15-20 µm for pearl effect colors
For smaller surfaces, the following make it possible to reduce the ventilation time:
The painted surfaces can be applied more quickly by blowing them with blower nozzles (hand blowers or with stationary devices).
Blowing with a spray gun is also possible after waiting at least five minutes.
For larger surfaces, the following make it possible to reduce the ventilation time:
 

Aqua Premium System

The painted surfaces can be applied more quickly by using stationary blowing devices (such as ceiling systems), infrared radiators or oven drying.
Three Layer Color Processing and Multi-Color Paintwork
Hardener:

Drying
 

Aqua Premium System

The ventilation time for a clear coat application should be long enough for the surface to become completely matted (without blowing).
The ventilation time should take place assisted with blowing devices at 20-40 °C (68° - 104 °F ) for 5 to 10 minutes until the surface becomes completely matted.
The final ventilation time is at 60-65 °C (140°–149 °F) for 10 to 15 minutes. Let the foundation cool off before applying the effect.
  Note
For multi-color paintwork, the recommended tape is the »blue conture tape«.

Special Instructions
Using the products
The spray devices should be suitable for use with water-soluble products; see manufacturer's information.
The mixing paints in this top coat series can only be used within the color tone formulas. When processing individual mixing paints on their own, major deviations from the information given in the application instructions are possible.
Cleaning the tools
Rinse before and after using with Aquaplus Purified Water -LVW 010 000 A5-. Then rinse with Nitrocellulose Thinner -LVE 856 000 A3-.
Disposal
Collect liquid waste from water-soluble products and separate from liquid waste from conventional products. When mixing materials, disposal may no longer be possible, which is difficult and costly.
