Base paint application "spray application"

The following materials can be used as additives:

  • Additive for Aqua Premium -LVM 035 301-

Volswagen Tiguan. P00-10029

  • Processing viscosity 4 mm for +20 ºC (68 ºF), German Industry Standardization 53211
  • Processing viscosity 4 mm at +20 ºC (68 ºF) material temperature is the mixing viscosity for "Compliant" and "HVLP".

Volswagen Tiguan. P00-10036

  • Add 50 % Additive for Aqua Premium -LVM 035 301- at +20 ºC (68 ºF)material temperature.

  • Set spray nozzle (see manufacturer's information): "Compliant" 1.2 to 1.3 mm.

Set spray nozzle (see manufacturer's information): "HVLP" 1.2 to 1.3 mm.

Set spray pressure (see manufacturer's information): "Compliant" to 2.0 bar.

Set atomizing pressure (see manufacturer's information): "HVLP" 0.7 bar.

Volswagen Tiguan. P00-10029

  • One work procedure contains 1.5 spray applications (one normal, preliminary spray application followed by a light spray application while standing back from the object).

Volswagen Tiguan. P00-10032

Note

  • The best results are achieved when using a 1.3 mm HVLP spray gun.
  • Additive for Aqua Premium -LVM 035 200 A3-/-LVM 035 301 A3- should be added immediately before applying the Water-Based Metallic Base Paint -LWG 056 1H7 A1-. The best result is achieved when the mixture is used within a working day.

Drying

Evaporating time before clear lacquer application

  • Blowing with a spray gun is also possible after waiting at least five minutes.
  • The drying time is at least 5 minutes.
