Unica Semi-gloss Enamel
Semi-gloss solvent based enamel for metal, wood and other composite surfaces. Unica semi-gloss enamel offers high levels of durability and impact resistance.
For interior and exterior painting of metal and wood furniture. Suitable also on several plastic surfaces such as fiberglass and plastic boats (surfaces above the water line). See instructions.
Standard colour Aluminium available in 1/3 l, 1 l cans.
Thinner: White Spirit 1050 or Spray Thinner 1032
Methods: brush, short pile roller or spray.
For airless spray: use a 0.009” – 0.013” (0.230 – 0.330mm) spray tip and thin by
5-20 vol-% with Spray Thinner 1032.
For conventional spray: use a 1.4mm – 1.8mm fluid nozzle and thin by 25-35 vol-% with Spray Thinner 1032 (DIN4 18-25 s).
Note: When applying Unica Special Alkyd Paint by spray the dry paint film should not exceed 40µm.
Withstands lubricating oils and greases. Splashes of fuel to be wiped off immediately.
Clean surfaces from dirt, dust, grease and oil. Remove possible white rust from galvanized surface by brushing. Clean plastic surface with a solvent, e.g. Thinner 1029 or other denatured ethanol. Sand the surface and dust off. Due to the various qualities of plastic the effect of solvent and adhesion of the paint should be tested prior to painting the whole surface. Prime wood surfaces with Jehu or Otex. Prime metal surfaces with Rostex Super anticorrosion primer. Aluminium surfaces are roughened prior to priming.
Previously painted surfaces:
Wash down with Maalipesu detergent and rinse carefully with water. Remove loose paint with a scraper and sand the whole surface. Dust off. Fill holes and cracks with Lacquer Putty. Sand filled spots and dust off. For worn out wood surfaces apply Jehu or Otex and for metal surfaces Rostex Super anticorrosion primer as an undercoat.
When you paint with bright red, yellow or orange colour, prime wood surfaces with Jehu or Otex tinted to the same colour. Zinc-coated, aluminium and steel surfaces should be primed with Rostex Super, light grey.
(pH 6-8) using smooth brush, sponge or cleaning cloth. Clean very dirty surfaces with lightly alkalic cleaning agent (pH 8-10) using e,g, cleaning cloth, mop or sponge. Rinse the surface carefully with water.
The surface achieves its final hardness and durability after approx.1 month under normal conditions, therefore the surface should be handled with care during that time.
If the surface has to be cleaned soon after treatment, use smooth brush, damp cleaning cloth or mop.
