Universal PU Enamel
Universal PU Enamel is based on a polyurethane enamel resin that provides a good hard-wearing coating, with great protection from the elements and UV resistant. This product can be brushed, rolled and sprayed.Our Semi-gloss and matt finishes can be used as a one coat application to mild steel as they both contain anti-corrosive properties whereas a gloss finish does not. Semi-gloss and matt finishes are less durable and scratch resistant comparedto a gloss.
• Touch Dry in 2-4 Hours. • Overcoat in 13.20-24 Hours. • Full Dry in 7 Days. • Product exhibits a good chemical resistance. • Thinners if required T0001 White Spirit. • Coverage approx. 8 square metres per litre. we cannot be held responsible for the method of application, absorption of substrate or wastage. • Suitable to be brushed and rolled and by spray gun
Things to Know• Mix paint well before use and check colour before use. • For the best anti-corrosion protection to metal use a primer first. • Make sure substrates are suitably prepared (lightly abraded, degreased and or primed). • When applying to pre painted substrates ensure existing paint is in good condition and lightly abraded to provide a key for the new coating to offer good intercoat adhesion.

Mixing & Thinning
Make sure you use a broom stick, mixer on a slow running drill or pallet knife that reaches the bottom of the can and mixing should take place for 3-5 mins to ensure all the content is properly mixed together to avoid colour and or drying problems.
Thinners required are White Spirit T0001. If thinning is required when applying by a brush or roller start by gradually adding 5% but do not thin more an 10% as the paint won’t cover
As our coatings are heavily pigmented separation can easily occur and you can have colour float, for example a green paint can seem blue before mixing, this is one of the reasons mixing your paint before use is essential.
If applying with a pot gun
Use a 1:2 to 1:4 tip set up thinning by 5% if required.
More thinners may be added to achieve good atomization to achieve better flow of the paint giving a better finish.
If applying with an air assisted or air assisted airless system Use a 11-13 thou tip no thinners usually required. If thinning is necessary, use around 5% and adjust to personal preference. Set air and paint pressures until good atomization is achieved and fingering (lines in the spray) have blended in.
