Long-Term Underbody Protection -D 314 D38 M2-, Bright Color
Edition 02/2010
Product Description
Long-Term Underbody Protection -D 314 D38 M2- is a bright, transparent coating compound (not opaque) with a watery synthetic dispersion base that is sprayed with a UBS-, paint- or filler spray gun.
The drying time depends on the layer thickness, ambient temperature and the surrounding humidity. Good ventilation and higher temperatures quicken the drying time.
The dried film shows good adhesion to galvanized and cathodic primed steel panels, as well as painted base surfaces. Due to the high resistance to abrasion and low-temperature flexibility, the long-term underbody protection is characterized by its quality stone chip protection characteristics.
The long-term underbody protection can be quickly applied/painted over with water-based paints.
After air drying (approximately two to three hours), the material can also be painted over with conventional painting systems (contains solvents).
The long-term underbody protection can be colored, mixed with water-based paints and diluted with demineralized water. To color, an addition of up to 30 % volume of ready to spray water-based paint is possible.
Due to the variations of mixture ratios, application pressures and intervals, smooth surfaces and fine to coarse structures can be produced.
The material is only temporarily resistant to gasoline and cold cleaners.
Application
Long-Term Underbody Protection -D 314 D38 M2- is suited for repair work on the underbody, wheel housing, front and rear areas. It is used on visible components, such as on the side sill, as paintable protection against stone impact, road salt and moisture corrosion.
The material is used to reestablish different surface structures on vehicles of all types after a repair.
The variable pigmentability is of a particular advantage. Any possible scratches or stone impacts become almost invisible.
  Note
Before starting to apply, it is necessary to read the safety measures and advice in the safety data sheet.
Even for products which are not required to be labeled by law, the usual safety measures must be observed for chemical emissions.
Processing
Clean the surfaces to be treated well beforehand and remove any rust.
The surfaces must be free from dirt and dust, dry and grease-free.
Surfaces which are not to be coated should be covered with paper.
Bare steel surfaces are to be primed before applying the long-term underbody protection.
The long-term underbody protection can be applied to all conventional sealants (except silicone) and is characterized by its good adhesion.
The long-term underbody protection surface can become weaker with plasticized sealants and also have a certain tackiness. However the material does not lose its adhesiveness.
Shake the can contents thoroughly before using.
The long-term underbody protection is applied using rustproof filler- or paint spray guns. The material can be diluted with distilled or demineralized water (purified water) for adjustment (maximum 10% of volume addition).
The first layer should not be applied too thickly (

spray application).
The long-term underbody protection is mixable with spray-ready water-based paints (maximum 30% of volume addition).
The replicate the conventional structures, the best results are achieved using a 10-15 % spray-ready painting technique.
The material should be filtered using a paint strainer before applying.
  Caution
Do not spray onto the steering, engine, driveshaft, exhaust, catalytic converter and brake systems.
Blow out the spraygun immediately after use and then rinse it with Plastic Cleaner -D 195 850 A1-.
If the spray gun becomes blocked the can may burst!
Observe the operating instructions of the UBS spray gun!
Painting over
  Note
The long-term underbody protection can be painted over with water-based and solvent-containing paints. Due to the large number of available systems on the market, testing is necessary.
1 -  Painting Over with Water-Soluble Paints:
–  After a short drying period (matte surface), the long-term underbody protection can be painted over up to 72 hours after applying with water-soluble paints.
2 -  Painting Over with Conventional (Solvent-Containing) Paints:
–  After drying, the long-term underbody protection can be painted over up to 72 hours after applying with conventional (solvent-containing) paints. The material has a quick-drying thick layer system. If accelerating the drying period in an airflow, then make sure that the rapidly forming film is not being actively blown onto the material that is still drying. This could lead to crack formation.
Cleaning
Splashes on painted surfaces should be removed immediately using Plastic Cleaner -D 195 850 A1-.
Equipment or the dirty parts of the equipment should be cleaned after applying water, and if necessary, adding of a watery cleaner. Do no use any solvent-containing cleaners (clotting). After drying, the long-term underbody protection can only be removed using a tool.
