method of LODAN "APTITUDE"lacquer
Sand-effect, grained, pebble, textured, ST.
Sandblasted and metallic finishes
1. Application using a spray-painting
gun (1L, 3L and 5L Item nr. 222PAE)
Before painting,degrease to a dust-free surface using LODAN PE THINNER
by rubbing with a soft cellulose, fluffless, padded cloth.
>on aluminium or painted steel & on treated wood: apply LODAN
aptitude paint immediately after degreasing.
>on anodised aluminium and on metals: after degreasing, apply a
fine coat of "LODAN PRIMER BP" bonding primer (anti-rust). Then apply LODAN
of LODAN aptitude
paint to the gun, instructions for use:
an intitial ultra fine coat. Then paint using successive fine coats
at intervals of several minutes to obtain the shade required. The
final coat is also thin coat.
On larger and broader surfaces, spray by holding the spray painting
gun at a distance from the surface to be painted in order to spread
the jet and paint by partially superimposing the coats in order to
prevent the appearance of distinct coats (damp paint on top of damp
sandblasted colours contain fine grains, wich create
the perfect sandblasted or grained effect (use a broader paint nozzle
for the spray painting gun if necessary)
LODAN aptitude paint Item nr. 222PAE should not be applied with a brush,
exept on materials where the requirements in terms of the surface
appearance are not crucial.
To apply a first
fine ultra layer
to Position the gun low pressure (HVLP)
to 10 to 15 cm of the surface to paint
To paint then in
successive layers (3 or 4)
to interval of some minutes
in order to get the tone wanted
to Hold the gun low pressure (HVLP)
to 10 to 15 cm of the surface to paint
The final layer also
takes place in fine layer
to Hold the gun low pressure
(HVLP)à 10 to 15 cm
of the surface to paint. On big surfaces, to hold it to
15 to 50cm,
2. Application with an aerosol: (400ml
Follow the instructions for application using a spray painting
gun. You should preferably use the adjustable spray button, permitting
fine application in horizontal or vertical stripes.
Application with an aerosol on broader or wider surfaces is less easy
than with a spray painting gun.
The conformity of the colour nevertheless permits painting if the
visual requirements are lower or if application is performed directly
onto a powdered, sandblasted paint.
you have started painting, finish the sections immediatly. If painting
has been interrupted for more than 30 minutes or if the application
parameters (see attached page) are not observed, there is a risk that
there may be defects in the surface appearance from the strat of application.
Wait a few hours before continuing with painting or start the painting
procedure again. If the surface does not change or crack, continue
3. Application with paintbrush cap:
- remove grease if necessary
- mix the contents of the bottle well for 2 to 3 minutes Box of 25 applicator sticks for precision retouching
- use the paintbrush to apply 1 or 2 coats to a clean surface
- use an applicator stick for precise retouching
4. Application with a brush:
(1L, 3L and 5L réf. PAE/B) dilute the paint with "THINNER
LODAN PE" to alter the liquidity if necessary. Degrease before
Note: sandblasted or metallic finishes are not reproduced
correctly when applied with a brush. The conformity of the colour
nevertheless permits painting in the event that the visual requirements
are not crucial.
Our advice: Always
carry out a test prior to use, following our recommendations.
- Application in fine layers to the gun or to the spray
permits the repairs even on big surfaces
- Some hues and aspects cannot be reproduced with as much fidelity as the full
The hue is then approaching.
- The use of other primaries antirouilles
on naked metals is sujette to previous tests of adhesion and compatibility
by the user.
Parameters of applications:
To optimize the parameters of application while lacquering to temperature
close to 18° (ambient temperature and also of the supports to paint,
of the painting and the LODAN PE THINNER. At the time of lacquering in shop, to foresee 2 to 3 days of drying or
more (to 18°, constant temperature) before packing and expedition.
An application and a storage after lacquering to low temperature,
to elevated relative humidity and with a weak ventilation delay the
drying to heart of the lacquer. Because of the climatic conditions,
the lacquering on site is counseled between the spring and the fall.
Lacquering by means of the whole ACCUSPRAY HVLP LODAN or the ACCUSPRAY gun
whole understands the ACCUSPRAY gun and the portable turbo-compressor
(900W - 0,35 bars) permitting a work in shop or on yard. The ACCUSPRAY
gun to which sets a regulator is adaptable to a compressor
As the hues apply in fine successive layers, the whole or the only
gun permits to lacquer almost without fog of painting and with an
extremely reduced masking.
The precision of application (including in the places difficult of
access like small cavities or the splices of volutes for example)
and the finish is blameless.
A formation of one day (even to a non qualified person but conscientious
and determined) to the method of application and to the maintenance
of the material is foreseen in our offers. Particularities: in the
case of a repair of corrosion or aspect modified, the application
of the lacquer liquidates LODAN aptitude
Item nr. 222PAE in the special hues is ideal and permits to avoid
a new complete lacquering most of the time. The lacquering on site
by means of the system ACCUSPRAY HVLP LODAN permits a blameless finish.
In application in the gun ACCUSPRAY HVLP
LODAN for a final thickness of env. 40µ: lacquer LODAN aptitude item nr. 222PAE (gun), approx. 8 to 10 m²/L - lacquer LODAN aptitude item nr. 222PAEbr (brush), approx. 8 to 10 m²/L - LODAN "PRIMER BP approx. 10 to 12 m²/L - (to foresee the losses of paintings in
