Pre-treatment for surface:
- Clean surface of dirt and grease, then remove rust.
- If necessary, treat existing pore rust with presto deruster.
- Fill uneven surfaces and sand. If no need to fill, then apply MoTip white primer.
- Once primer has dried, sand the painted object with 600-grit sandpaper.
- Shake can for 2 minutes before use.
- Keep spray distance of 25-30 cm.
- Then apply several thin coats to the dry metallic lacquer surface at intervals of 3-5 minutes.
- Shake the can from time to time during use to ensure the pigmentation is spread out evenly.
- Seal the lacquered surface with clear lacquer after at least 30 minutes. Otherwise the aluminium particles in the metallic lacquer can be damaged by environmental and weather conditions.
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!
