Smooth transition painting using base enamel and varnish
To prepare the repaired surface, the area of the part adjacent to the repaired area is matted. If the transition is not planned for the varnish, then the entire element is matted. To do this, use an abrasive P400-P500 (or P800 - P1000 in the case of water). We recommend using a matting paste with a small amount of water. When matting, special attention is paid to the ends and hard-to-reach places, because their poor-quality processing in the future can lead to peeling and chipping of the coating. After processing, the surface is blown with compressed air. When using matting paste, the remaining paste is removed using water. Then degrease with Reoflex antisilicon and wipe with a sticky cloth.
The next step to create a wet substrate is to apply the base for Reoflex transitions in 1 layer to the sealed zone (the material does not require dilution). The surface is kept for 3-5 minutes at a temperature of + 20°C. Then, without waiting for complete drying, the base enamel is applied to the repaired area in 2-3 layers diagonally. It is not recommended to spray the transition in a single vertical line, because in this case, the transition will be noticeable. When applying enamel, it is necessary to gradually expand the color zone, i.e. each subsequent layer of enamel should overlap the previous one. Interlayer drying is performed within 10 minutes at a temperature of + 20°C. Before applying each layer, it is recommended to wipe the surface with a sticky cloth. After drying the enamel to a matte state (15 minutes at a temperature of +20°C), apply the varnish in compliance with TDS requirements.
In the event that there is a need to go over the varnish, The painted surface is applied reoflex varnish in 2 layers, gradually expanding the color zone, similar to applying the base enamel. The varnish is applied in strict accordance with TDS. After applying the varnish and a slight exposure to the transition zone, apply the Reoflex transition thinner in 1 layer. The transition thinner is a ready-to-use product, but if necessary it can be mixed with a ready-made mixture of acrylic varnish in a ratio of 5 to 1 by volume. Drying is performed in strict accordance with TDS for acrylic lacquers. After the coating is completely dry, if necessary, the transition zone can be polished.
