  15-20 minutes up to max. 90 minutes with 2-pack HS top coat
  25-30 minutes up to max. 90 minutes with waterborne base coat

Special notes
Elasticization for rigid and semi-rigid plastics:
  First mix the base material with 15% elastic additive -ALZ 011 001-. Mixing ratio 3:1 with VHS hardeners and 20% thinner, 2:1 with HS hardeners and 20% thinner.
  Any substrate defects can be treated with 2-pack polyester filler. After drying and intermediate sanding, isolate the filler patches with 2-pack HS Vario surfacer.
  To achieve an optimal finish on passenger cars, it is recommended to let the surfacer dry overnight before sanding it.
  Do not apply wet-on-wet on top of thermoplastic factory finish, and if possible let the surfacer dry overnight before sanding it.
  A minimum temperature of +15°C is recommended for air drying.
  Caution
The flash-off times increase to between 30 and 40 minutes before applying base coats or 2-pack top coats.
