Alclad II - ALC112 Steel 1oz
Application guide- plastic models:
- For use on injection plastic kits a primer is necessary. ‘Regular ALCLAD’ is similar in strength to lacquer/cellulose car paints-injected polystyrene plastics frequently have areas which ALCLAD can craze. High-Shine ALCLAD finishes require a glossy base coat.
Preparation and spraying:
-The surfaces to be painted must be thoroughly clean and free from dust,grease,oil and finger marks.
- Apply the correct primer for the type of Alclad being used.
- ALCLAD should be sprayed at 12-15psi. Spray from a distance of 2-3 inches from the surface being painted using a narrow to medium width spray fan. Use the airbrush like a paint brush-aim to cover the model in a methodical manner.
- Buffing is not necessary-tonal variation can be made by polishing selected panels with Micromesh.
- REGULAR ALCLAD can be masked over and painted. Decal solutions can be used with REGULAR ALCLAD, but are not recommended for HIGH SHINE ALCLAD
- The PRISMATIC finishes require a dark base coat-use ALCLAD GLOSS BLACK BASE. Apply 2-3 light coats. When completely dry finish with 2-3 coats of ALCLAD CLEAR BASE. ALCLAD HOLOMATIC SPECTRAL CHROME should be applied over ALCLAD GLOSS BLACK BASE. Apply 1-2 light coats. When completely dry finish with 2-3 coats of WATER BASED CLEAR.
