Volkswagen Polo Service & Repair Manual: Aquaplus Design and Multi-Color Paintwork

In order to achieve error-free design and multi-colored paint applications using Aquaplus solid, metallic, pearlescent base paint, pay attention to the important notes and in some cases use special tools.
Preparation:
If the design is sketched out on the base surface (filler, paint) do not use any marking pens with water soluble colors to prevent it from »bleeding through« in the base paints. If it is not possible the markings must be carefully removed using Silicone Remover -LSW 019 000 A5- after covering the design.
Covering the Base Surfaces (Two-Part HS Top Coat)
For work on two-part HS top coats commercially available outline/decorative tape and masking tape are used.
Covering the Aqua Plus Solid, Metallic, Pearlescent Base Paint
Use commercially available outline/decorative tape and masking tape.
Carefully apply outline and masking tape.
If surfaces are to be covered, use cover sheeting (To avoid marks)
Do not leave outline and masking tape on the surfaces longer than necessary.
Dry the Individual Water Based Paint Layers.
Heated drying is not recommended, because there is a risk that the glue from the outline and masking tape will transfer to the water-based paint.
The individual water based paint layers can be dried with an air nozzle or slightly raised temperature. These are the most effective drying methods.
For the individual colors the application of a layer of more than 40 µm thick must be prevented. As a result, problems may arise, such as the film debonding when exposing, during drying or with covering ability.
Multi-color Coats with Insulating Layer
On multi-color finishes, it is recommended to insulate the individually applied coats with HS clear coat to prevent »bleeding through« or discoloring on the individual coats.
For this kind of insolation layer the Two-Part HS Vario Clear Coat - L2K 769 K01 A5- mixed with Two-Part HS Hardener, Short -LHA 021 004 A3- is especially suitable.
To achieve an acceptable drying or covering ability the user or longer hardener is not recommended.
The insolation layer is applied exclusively on the Aquaplus water-based base paint.
Then carry out the required steps as an example for a multi-color paintwork of three color shades.
   
–  Apply the first color shade with Aquaplus water-based base paint.

  Note
For the required neighboring surfaces only use plastic film, to prevent dissolving of the paint coats already applied.
By covering the markings they will disappear due to the following clear coat application.
For all additional parameters for the application of the respective relevant products refer to the respective technical application information.
