Preparation of the ground:
- Derust surface, then clean from dirt and fat.
- Egalize uneven surfaces (apply putty, sand down).
- If application of putty is not necessary, apply a primer. Otherwise apply a filler to the fine-sanded area.
- Before mask off the repair spot generously.
- In case you work on bigger surfaces, we recommend to mask off seams and edges of the bodywork.
- The ground has to be clean, dry and free from fat.
- Mask off areas you do not want to paint.
- Test spray.
- Before use, shake the can for approx. 3 minutes.
- The spray distance should be approx. 20 - 30 cm.
- Apply the cover coat in several thin layers in 3 - 5 minute intervals.
- Do not spray over synthetic paints!
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!
