Structuring Component, Fine -ALN 775 108-
Edition 04/2013
Product Description
The Structuring Component, Fine -ALN 775 108- is a component for the two-part HS top coat and changes it into a textured paint.
The top coat can be used for plastic finishes on vehicles.
Application Instructions
Base Surface
Suitable base surfaces:
Hardened, well-preserved and sanded old paint or factory paints
Plastic parts treated with primer or filler
  Note
For information about plastic parts, refer to "The VW/Audi Coating System for Plastic Parts" (Data Sheet 5.74).
   
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:
–  Afterwards combine this mixture 4:1 by volume with a suitable two-part VHS hardener.
See technical application information two-part VHS hardener. Refer to → Chapter „Two-Part VHS Hardener and Two-Part VHS Performance Hardener“.
Dilutable with:

Structuring Component

–  Set spray nozzle (see manufacturer's information): “Compliant” 1.3 to 1.4 mm.
–  Set spray nozzle (see manufacturer's information): “HVLP” 1.3 to 1.5 mm.
–  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

Drying
