Application Instructions

Base Surface

Suitable base surfaces:

  • Two-Part HS Filler
  • Intact old paint
  • For plastic surfaces prime with Glazing Adhesion Promoter - ALO 822 000 10- and rework with elastified Two-part HS.

Pre-treatment of base surfaces:

Preparation

  • Sand the repair area with P500-P600 grit sandpaper or wet-sand with water-resistant P800-1000 sandpaper.

Volswagen Tiguan. P00-10040

  • Sand the adjacent area (around the vehicle parts and the repair area) thoroughly with P1000-3000 sandpaper, only wet sand.

Volswagen Tiguan. P00-10041

Note

If beading, edges or grip recesses are present, use a sanding pad beforehand.

Cleaning

  • Clean the entire surface thoroughly with Silicone Remover -LVM 020 000 A5- to remove dust, sanding residue and other dirt.
  • Wipe off any residual silicone remover with a lint-free cloth, leaving no streaks.

  • Allow wet-sanded surfaces and cleaned surfaces to dry completely.

When using a dust extraction, use next generation towels with an effective light adhesive formula to minimize the risk of chemical or adhesive residue (for example, Dust Cloth -VAS6177-).

Special Instructions

  • Insulate sanded-through areas with Two-Part Wash Primer -LHV 043 000 A2- and then fill with Two-Part HS Performance Filler.

Method 1:

Repair process, touch-up the neighboring surfaces (for example color matching fender/door)

  • Apply 1-2 preliminary spray applications of the Touch-Up Additive For Aqua Premium -LVM 035 100 A3--2- in the blended area with normal spray pressure on the old paint/filled surface -1-.

Volswagen Tiguan. P00-10748

Note

Pay attention that the blended area is large enough.

  • Then the first base paint spray application -1- is lightly applied from the blended area into the wet touch-up additive -2-.

  • In the second step a further reduced spray application -2- follows without a drying time. Pay attention that the spray application is applied in the area previously shifted forward -1- to archive an even effect.

  • After the touch-up painting the connection area and the remaining surfaces (starting from the new part) -1- in 1.5 spray applications (standard process) are painted.

  • After ventilating, apply a two-part HS clear coat -1- over the entire repair surface.

Method 2:

Repair process, touch-up the neighboring surfaces (for example color matching fender/door, alternative method for solid and dark effect color shades).

  • Apply 1-2 preliminary spray applications of the Touch-Up Additive For Aqua Premium -LVM 035 100 A3--2- in the blended area with normal spray pressure on the old paint/filled surface -1-.

Volswagen Tiguan. P00-10748

Note

Pay attention that the blended area is large enough.

  • Then apply the first base paint spray application -3- from the blended area (starting from the new part) to the edge of the wet touch-up additive -2-. Immediately after that, apply the half effect/finish spray application onto the wet touch-up additive -2- and to the new part -1-, from a distance.

Volswagen Tiguan. P00-10753

  • After touch-up painting the base paint application -1- takes place on the remaining surfaces in 1.5 spray applications (standard process).

Volswagen Tiguan. P00-10754

  • After ventilating, apply a two-part HS clear coat -1- over the entire repair surface.

Note

  • Starting with the first spray application, it is recommended to even out the subsequent repair area spray applications starting from the touch-up area that is farthest out. For that reason, the subsequent spray applications should always be remain inside the previous spray application in order to archive an even effect.
  • While processing the Aqua premium water-based base paint, the spray gun material flow/trigger remains completely open.
  • The spraying pressure for the effect spray application can vary between 1.5 and 2.0 bar depending on the size of the object.

Method 3:

Repair process, touching-up minimal damage for example clever repair.

Note

The repair/filler area should be kept as small as possible.

Possibility 1

  • For most colors, use the adjusted water-based base paint.

Possibility 2

  • It is recommended for colors with a high percentage of metal to adjust the Aqua premium water-based base paint in a 1:1 ratio with Touch-Up Additive for Aqua Premium -LVM 035 100 A3- + 10 % Flop Control -LWM 085 386 A2- (Additive For Aqua Premium -LVM 035 200/301- is not required). Use the Aqua Premium dipstick for clever repair.
  • Depending on the color and covering capacity, apply 3-5 spray applications of this mixture with reduced pressure (0.8-1.5 bar) to the repair area/run-off area. Make sure that each spray application is performed a little bit further and allowed to ventilate and matt. The ventilation time can be accelerated by blowing.

Volswagen Tiguan. P00-10032

  • After an appropriate final ventilation time, the clear coat can be applied.

Note

  • While processing the Aqua premium water-based base paint, the spray gun material flow/trigger remains completely open.
  • For efficient ventilating and drying, stationary blowing devices or forced drying (for example heated drying) are recommended.

Using the products

  • The spray devices should be suitable for use with water-soluble products; see manufacturer's information.
  • The Aqua Premium mixing paints can only be used within the color tone formulas.
  • When processing individual mixing paints on their own, major deviations from the information given in the application instructions are possible.

Cleaning the Tools

  • Rinse before and after using with Aquaplus Purified Water -LVW 010 000 A5-. Then rinse with Nitrocellulose Thinner -LVE 856 000 A3-.

Disposal

  • Collect liquid waste from water-soluble products and separate from liquid waste from conventional products. When mixing materials, disposal may no longer be possible, which is difficult and costly.

Personal Protective Equipment:

  • Note the safety data sheets
  • Wear the personal protective equipment during application
