Application
Mixing ratio:
–  3:1 by volume with:
2-pack VHS hardener, fast-drying -LHA 009 050 A2- (for small areas and spot repair)
2-pack VHS hardener -LHA 009 051 A2-/-LVM 009 051 A5- (for small to medium-size areas at moderate temperatures)
2-pack VHS hardener, slow-drying -LHA 009 052 A2-/-LHA 009 052 A3- (for larger areas at moderate temperatures)
2-pack VHS hardener, extra slow-drying -LHA 009 053 A2- (for large areas at high temperatures)
See technical data sheet for 2-pack VHS hardener → Chapter

–  Mixed for spraying, 60 to 90 minutes at +20°C
May be thinned with 2-pack thinner, special -LVM 009 200 A2-, HS spot thinner -LVM 006 000 A2- or 2-pack thinner, slow-drying -LVM 009 300 A2-

Method of application: “spray”.
 

2-pack HS top coat

–  Application viscosity for +20 °C material temperature.
Application viscosity “compliant” and “HVLP”:
18-20 seconds
18-25 seconds for black matt -L2K 073 3FZ A2- and grey matt -L2K 073 7DL A2-.
 

2-pack HS top coat

–  Add 12.5% thinner at +20 °C material temperature.
 

2-pack HS top coat

–  Adjust spray nozzle following manufacturer's instructions to 1.2-1.4 mm for “compliancy”.
–  Adjust spray nozzle following manufacturer's instructions to 1.3-1.4 mm for “HVLP”.
–  Adjust spray pressure following manufacturer's instructions to 2.0-2.5 bar for “compliancy”.
–  Adjust atomising pressure following manufacturer's instructions to 0.7 bar for “HVLP”.
 

2-pack HS top coat

–  One-and-a-half spray coats are necessary to achieve the recommended dry-film thickness of 50-60 µm.
  Note
When used for spot repairs (Clever Repair method), 12.5% HS spot thinner -LVM 006 000 A2- may be substituted for the 12.5% 2-pack thinner, special -LVM 009 200 A2-.
Do not apply to horizontal surfaces.
The first half-coat should form a uniformly thin film over which a full spray coat is directly sprayed.
If the paint hue does not hide well, it may be necessary to apply an additional spray coat after an appropriate flash-off time. 2-pack HS top coat can be recoated with more of the same paint within 24 hours without »intermediate sanding«.
The mixing colours in this mixing paint series can be used only as part of a colour formula. If any mixing colour is applied alone, the results may differ substantially to the description in this technical data sheet.
