Method 1:
Repair process, touch-up the neighboring surfaces (for example color matching fender/door)
–  Apply 1-2 preliminary spray applications of the Touch-Up Additive For Aqua Premium -LVM 035 100 A3--2- in the blended area with normal spray pressure on the old paint/filled surface -1-.
  Note
Pay attention that the blended area is large enough.

Method 2:
Repair process, touch-up the neighboring surfaces (for example color matching fender/door, alternative method for solid and dark effect color shades).
–  Apply 1-2 preliminary spray applications of the Touch-Up Additive For Aqua Premium -LVM 035 100 A3--2- in the blended area with normal spray pressure on the old paint/filled surface -1-.
  Note
Pay attention that the blended area is large enough.

–  Then apply the first base paint spray application -3- from the blended area (starting from the new part) to the edge of the wet touch-up additive -2-. Immediately after that, apply the half effect/finish spray application onto the wet touch-up additive -2- and to the new part -1-, from a distance.

–  After ventilating, apply a two-part HS clear coat -1- over the entire repair surface.
  Note
Starting with the first spray application, it is recommended to even out the subsequent repair area spray applications starting from the touch-up area that is farthest out. For that reason, the subsequent spray applications should always be remain inside the previous spray application in order to archive an even effect.
While processing the Aqua premium water-based base paint, the spray gun material flow/trigger remains completely open.
The spraying pressure for the effect spray application can vary between 1.5 and 2.0 bar depending on the size of the object.

Method 3:
Repair process, touching-up minimal damage for example clever repair.
  Note
The repair/filler area should be kept as small as possible.
Possibility 1
For most colors, use the adjusted water-based base paint.
Possibility 2
It is recommended for colors with a high percentage of metal to adjust the Aqua premium water-based base paint in a 1:1 ratio with Touch-Up Additive for Aqua Premium -LVM 035 100 A3- + 10 % Flop Control -LWM 085 386 A2- (Additive For Aqua Premium -LVM 035 200/301- is not required). Use the Aqua Premium dipstick for clever repair.
Depending on the color and covering capacity, apply 3-5 spray applications of this mixture with reduced pressure (0.8-1.5 bar) to the repair area/run-off area. Make sure that each spray application is performed a little bit further and allowed to ventilate and matt. The ventilation time can be accelerated by blowing.

–  After an appropriate final ventilation time, the clear coat can be applied.
  Note
While processing the Aqua premium water-based base paint, the spray gun material flow/trigger remains completely open.
For efficient ventilating and drying, stationary blowing devices or forced drying (for example heated drying) are recommended.
Using the products
The spray devices should be suitable for use with water-soluble products; see manufacturer's information.
The Aqua Premium mixing paints 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
