Pre-treatment of base surfaces:
–  Carefully clean using Silicone Remover -LVM 020 000 A5- or Silicone Remover, Long -LVM 020 100 A5-.
 

Structuring Component

–  Dry-sand with rotary sander and dust extraction (P 400 to 500 grit).
 

Structuring Component

–  Or wet-sand with P 800 grit sandpaper
 

Structuring Component

–  Use a suitable cleaning agent before reworking to ensure a clean and residue-free surface.
Processing
 

Structuring Component

Mixing ratio
Mixing ratio 1:1 by volume with two-part HS top coat:

–  Set spray pressure (see manufacturer's information): “Compliant” to 2.0 to 2.5 bar.
–  Set atomizing pressure (see manufacturer's information): “HVLP” 0.7 bar.
 

Structuring Component

–  Two spray applications are required with drying time (5 to 10 minutes) to get a dry layer thickness of between 50 and 60 µm.
  Note
The addition of Elastic Additive -ALZ 011 001- is omitted.
Structuring Component, Fine -ALN 775 108- is only suitable for use on attachments (for example, bumpers, spoilers).
Various effects can be created using different spraying techniques and layer thicknesses.
Structuring Component, Fine -ALN 775 108- is thixotropically mixed, which means it becomes fluid when stirred.
 

Structuring Component
