Motospray Drier QD601 4 Litre must be used in all QD601 Enamels or the paint will not dry .
Description HiChem QD 601 Super Enamel is a high gloss air drying spraying enamel based on a blend of alkyd resins. It exhibits excellent durability, corrosion resistance and gloss retention properties.
QD 601 Super Enamel is slower drying than HiChem Quick Drying Spray Enamel but with superior gloss and durability. Increased film hardness, chemical resistance and durability can be obtained with the addition of HiChem Enamel Hardener. By the addition of Universal Flatting Base lower gloss finishes can be achieved.
Uses HiChem QD 601 Super Enamel is suitable for interior and exterior surfaces on both structural maintenance and new building construction projects on a variety of metal surfaces as well as timber after the application of a suitable primer and/or undercoat. Features Fast drying Excellent exterior durability
Good petrol resistance Excellent gloss and gloss retention
Excellent application properties Surface Preparation Mild steel: Remove rust, old and scaling paintwork and thoroughly clean with HiChem Prepwash wax and grease remover. Prime surfaces with HiChem Structural Primer 3260. Non-ferrous substrates:
Substrates such as aluminium, zinc-alum and galvanised steel should first be abraded using a Medium / Coarse (Maroon) Abrasive Hand Pad. Clean with HiChem Prepwash wax and grease remover.
Then apply one light even coat of HiChem Super Etch Primer to a dry film thickness of 6-12 micron. Timber: Sand and remove dust. Apply HiChem Oil Based Primer For Wood. Aged lacquer and enamel :
Remove loose and flaking paint. Remove all the gloss from previously painted areas by sanding with 280-360 grit abrasive paper. Apply the appropriate primer. Thinning May be thinned by between 15-20% with HiChem Enamel Thinner E250. In hot weather, greater than 20 Deg C, or when spraying larger areas, use Mineral Turps.
When using Enamel Hardener the amount of thinners added may need to be reduced.
Enamel Hardener is used at a ratio of 16 parts by volume QD 601 Super Enamel to 1 part Enamel Hardener (which is 250 mls per 4 litre or approx. 60 mls per litre).
Use of Universal Flatting Base (see Product Information Sheet) may require a reduction in the amount of thinners added.
