Description
SURFACE PREPARATION AND APPLICATION PREPARATION - Bare Wood - The surface should be clean and dry, sandpapered and dusted off. Apply a first coat of TOPKAPI LUCIDA UV onto bare wood, highly diluted up to 50-70% (depending on wood absorption) in order to allow the varnish to sink into the wood substrate. (As a clear primer alternative, one coat of POLIGLASS two-component varnish diluted 50-100% (depending on wood absorption) with Thinner 203 can be applied; care should be taken in order to maintain the grain of the wood open so to enable the application of subsequent coats of TOPKAPI LUCIDA UV. Overcoat then with 4-5 coats of TOPKAPI LUCIDA UV to obtain a high quality gloss finish, allowing the required recoat time between coats. Previously Varnished Wood - If the old paint is in poor conditions, loose or powdery, it should be mechanically removed. Clean the surface well and follow application directions as per bare wood. If the old paint is in good condition of adhesion and it only needs a topcoat because it is dull or dirty but with the underneath coatings still well fixed to the substrate (with no cracks or bubbles), clean,degrease and sandpaper with medium-fine abrasive paper and apply 2-3 coats of TOPKAPI LUCIDA UV to obtain a high quality gloss finish, allowing 24 hours between coats. Note: In the summer season or when temperatures are higher than 20°C, it is recommended for brush application the use of flowing THINNER 109.
