Technical Information Auto-Color Acrylic Auto-Spray
The well proven combi system for a wide range of applications. Combi system means, that within very close tolerances, the colour corresponds approximately to the original car manufacturer shade.
High performance acrylic paint for lacquering or retouching automobiles and many other objects, for example in the household: for do-it-yourself works, decoration and handicraft. Applicable on metal, wood, glass, stone, ceramics, carton and many coatable hard plastics. In the industrial sector: thanks to quick-drying quality and many RAL shades.
Our AUTO-COLOR combi system includes several original automobile paint colours under one reference number (ID number), which are identical in colour but which are given different references by different car manufactures grouped under one ID-no. For example the ID-no. includes 30 different colours from different car manufacturers. With the help of the Auto-color catalogue the suitable colour code resp. ID-no. is easy to find.
The AUTO-COLOR assortment includes over 600 color-IDs, which cover more than 14,000 original automotive colours.

Preparation of the ground:
- Clean underground from dirt, fat and rust. If necessary, treat existing pore rust with presto Rust Stop.
- Fill and sand uneven surfaces.
- Generously mask off the repair spot with tape. Larger surfaces should be masked off at creases and edges of the car body, too.
- Apply DUPLI-COLOR Filler or Spray Putty on the fine-sanded putty surface.
Smooth the thoroughly dried Filler layer by wet-sanding (sandpaper P1000).
First abrade the Spray Putty-layer with P600 sandpaper, afterwards prepare the surface for the finish coating with DUPLI-COLOR Filler or Primer.
- Pre-treat plastic parts with DUPLI-COLOR Plastic Primer.
- The surface has to be clean, dry and free from fat.
- Before use, shake the can vigorously for 3 minutes.
- Test spray to check colour-matching.
- The spray distance should be approx. 20-30 cm.
- Spray in 3 - 5 minute intervals several thin coats onto the dry repair spot.
- Do not spray over synthetic paints!
2-Coat Clear Lacquer:
- Metallic paints have to be sealed after 30 minutes drying time with clear lacquer. Otherwise the aluminium parts in the lacquer will be attacked by environmental and weathering influences.
Tips for spray painting
Protect the object and the surrounding area from spray mist. When painting small areas it is recommended that a piece of card is used as a mask, with a hole cut in it slightly larger than the area to be sprayed. The mask should be held 1 to 2 cm from the surface. With this method, the mainly part of the spray mist is brought under control. It recommends to mask parts not to be lacquered, to protect the surrounding against the spray mist.
The aerosol can should have room temperature.
Temperature should range between +10°C and +25°C, max. air humidity 60 %.
Store in a dry place. Protect from direct sunlight and other sources of heat. Use only during dry weather, in places protected from the wind, and in well-ventilated rooms. Follow the warning texts on the labels!
