Volkswagen Polo Service & Repair Manual: Paint System for Plastic Parts

This universal painting system enables you to safely and simply paint all plastic parts which can be usually found on the exterior. (Plastic types: PP, EPDM, ABS, PC, PPO, PBTP, UP-GF, PA, PVC, R-TPU, PUR) This technical reference material does not apply to factory primed plastic parts.
Base Surface
Pretreatment of base surfaces:
   
–  The base surface must be free of separating agents. Before cleaning the plastic parts, temper them for 60 minutes at +60 ℃ to sweat out the separating agents.
–  Clean with the Antistatic Plastic Cleaner -LKR 001 001 A3- or a milder Silicone Remover, Long -LSE 20 100 A3-.
The effort needed for cleaning depends on the type and quantity of the separating agent used. It is recommend to use a sanding pad to support the cleaning process. Let the thinner evaporate (for example, air-drying overnight at room temperature or 30-40 minutes at +60 ℃).

–  Before priming, lightly clean again using Antistatic Plastic Cleaner -LKR 001 001 A3- or Silicone Remover, Long -LSE 20 100 A3-.
The Paint Structure is not for Primed Plastic Parts.
Primer:
To attain secure adhesion, plastics must be primed after they have been thoroughly cleaned. Here the user has two choices:
1. -  Prime with Two-Part Synthetic Adhesion Filler, White - LKF 696 009- or Two-Part Synthetic Adhesion Filler, Black - LKF 696 040-. The Two-Part Synthetic Adhesion Filler, White -LKF 696 009- and the Two-Part Synthetic Adhesion Filler, Black -LKF 696 040- are primer/fillers which can be directly painted over with top coat.
2. -  Prime with Glazing Adhesion Promoter - ALO 822 000 10- and rework with elastified Two-part HS filler. Further processing with top coat and clear coat.
Notes for Damages:
–  Small scratches can be filled after priming with Two-Part Fine Filling Paste -LSP 784 002 A2-.
–  After sanding the filled patches insulate them:
1. -  With Two-Part Synthetic Adhesion Filler, White - LKF 696 009- or Two-Part Synthetic Adhesion Filler, Black - LKF 696 040-.
2. -  Prime with Glazing Adhesion Promoter - ALO 822 000 10- and rework with elastified Two-part HS. Further processing with top coat and clear coat.
