Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Permanent underbody protection -D 314 D36 M2-, grey

Designation:
Permanent underbody protection -D 314 D36 M2-, grey
Issued 02.2010
Product description, permanent underbody protection -D 314 D36 M2-, grey
Permanent underbody protection -D 314 D36 M2- is a grey coating compound based on an aqueous synthetic resin dispersion which can be sprayed on using a UBS gun.
Drying time depends on the coat thickness as well as the ambient temperature and humidity. Good ventilation and higher temperatures accelerate drying.
The dried film adheres well to sheet metal, which is galvanised or coated with electrophoretic primer, as well as to painted substrates. Due to the great resistance to abrasion and flexibility under cold conditions, permanent underbody protection exhibits excellent stone-chipping protection.
Permanent underbody protection can be quickly overpainted with water-based paints.
After air drying about 2 to 3 hours, the material can be overpainted with conventional solvent-based paint systems as well.
The dried coating is easy to sand after thorough hardening.
Permanent underbody protection is suitable for reproducing the original structure following repairs.
The material is only temporarily resistant to naphtha and cold cleaners.
Application
Permanent underbody protection -D 314 D36 M2- is suitable for repairing underbodies, wheel housings, and front end and rear ends and can be applied to visible parts such as door sills as paintable protection against stone chipping, road salt and corrosion due to moisture.
The material is suitable for repairing various surface structures following repairs to all sorts of vehicles.
Permanent underbody protection is suitable for deadening noise from boots, bonnets, wheel housings and side panels as well as covering and sealing repaired surfaces, welded joints and overlaps.
  Note
Before using, read the safety measures and recommendations in the safety data sheet.
Even for products which are not required by law to be labelled, the usual safety measures for chemical products must be observed.
Application
The surfaces to be treated must be cleaned thoroughly beforehand, and any rust must be removed.
The surfaces must be dry and free of dirt, dust and grease.
Surfaces which are not to be coated should be covered with paper.
Bare steel surfaces are to be primed before application of permanent underbody protection.
Permanent underbody protection is applied from the 1-litre can using the UBS gun. The application pressure is 4-5 bar.
Shake the can vigorously for one minute before use.
  Caution
Do not spray onto joints, engine, propshaft, exhaust, catalytic converter or brake system.
Blow out the UBS gun immediately after use and then clean it with plastic cleaner -D 195 850 A1-D 195 850 A1.
If the UBS gun becomes blocked, the can may burst.
Observe the operating instructions of the UBS gun.
Overpainting
  Note
Permanent underbody protection can be overpainted with both water-based and solvent-based paints. Due to the large number of systems available in the market, test spraying is necessary.
1 -  Overpainting with water-based paints:
–  After drying to a matt surface and up to 72 hours following application, permanent underbody protection can be overpainted using water-based paints.
2 -  Overpainting with conventional solvent-based paints:
–  After drying thoroughly and up to 72 hours following application, permanent underbody protection can be overpainted using solvent-based paints. The material is a fast-drying thick-coat system. When accelerating drying with forced air, ensure that the fast-developed skin is not blown away over the still-wet material on which it is floating. This can cause cracking in the finish.
Cleaning
Splashes on painted surfaces should be removed immediately using plastic cleaner -D 195 850 A1-.
Equipment and soiled parts must be cleaned with water immediately after application, if necessary using a water-based cleaning agent. Do not use any solvent-based cleaning agents, for these cause coagulation. After drying, permanent underbody protection can only be removed mechanically.
