that can be used for treating plastic vehicle parts.
Technical data sheet
Substrate
Suitable substrates:
Hardened, well-preserved and lightly sanded old or factory finish.
Plastic parts coated with primer or surfacer.
  Note
For plastic parts, see "The VW/Audi painting system for plastic parts" (data sheet no. 5.74).
   
Substrate pre-treatment:
–  Thoroughly clean with silicone remover -LVM 020 000 A5- or slow-drying silicone remover -LVM 020 100 A5-.
 

Texture additive

–  Dry sand using orbital sander (P400 to P500 grade) and dust collector.
 

Texture additive

–  Alternatively, wet sand with P800-grain sandpaper.
 

Texture additive

–  Before recoating, use a suitable cleaning agent to ensure a clean surface free of residues.
Application
 

Texture additive

Mixing ratio
Mixing ratio 1:1 by volume with 2-pack HS top coat:
–  Then mix this 4:1 by volume with a suitable 2-pack VHS hardener.
See technical data sheet for 2-pack VHS hardener → Chapter.
Thinner:
2-pack thinner, special -LVM 009 200 A2/A5-
2-pack thinner, slow-drying -LVM 009 300 A2-
 

Texture additive

Application time/pot life:
–  Mixed for spraying, 90 to 100 minutes at +20°C
 

Texture additive

Method of application: “spray”.
 

Texture additive

–  Application viscosity 4 mm, +20 °C, DIN 53211
–  The application viscosity at +20 °C is the “compliant” and “HVLP” mixing viscosity.
 

Texture additive

–  Add 15 % thinner at +20 °C material temperature.
 

Texture additive

–  Adjust spray nozzle following manufacturer's instructions to 1.3-1.4 mm for “compliancy”.
–  Adjust spray nozzle following manufacturer's instructions to 1.3-1.5 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”.
 

Texture additive

–  Two spray passes (with intermediate flash-off time of 5 to 10 minutes) are necessary to achieve the recommended dry-film thickness of 50-60 µm.
  Note
It is not necessary to add the elastic additive -ALZ 011 001-.
The fine texture additive -ALN 775 108- is only suitable for use on add-on parts (e.g. bumpers or spoilers).
Various effects can be created using different spraying techniques and layer thicknesses.
The fine texture additive -ALN 775 108- is thixotropic and becomes liquid when stirred well.
 

Texture additive

Dust dry in 30-50 minutes
Dry for assembly in 4-6 hours
Dry overnight
 

Texture additive

Final flash-off time with force drying is at least 5-10 minutes.
 

Texture additive

Force drying at +60 °C material temperature in 30-40 minutes.
 

Texture additive

The final flash-off time with infrared drying is 5 minutes.
 

Texture additive

Infrared drying with short-wave radiant heater, 10-15 minutes and medium-wave radiant heater, 15-20 minutes.
 

Texture additive

Personal protective equipment:
Adhere to the safety data sheet.
