Product Description

The Alclad II Lacquer range of paints consists of 21 Natural Metal finishes, 4 Prismatic colours, 5 Transparent colours and 4 Plastic Primers. Alclad is pre-thinned for airbrush use. Drying time is under 10 minutes. Airbrushes should be cleaned with Alclad airbrush cleaner.

Alclad paints are designed for use with airbrushes only.

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.

Apply one of these primers before using Regular ALCLAD:

  • Alclad Primers (ALC 302, 306 or 309)
  • Tamiya Plastic Primers-white or grey
  • Auto Primer-white or grey
  • Future/Klear
  • Floor sealer/polish

Plastic primers and auto primers should be lightly polished with 1000/1200 wet and dry paper to give a less absorbent glossy surface.

ALCLAD High Shine

  • High shine Alclad paints (Chrome, polished brass, stainless steel, gold titanium, airframe Aluminium and polished aluminium) require a dark glossy base.
  • Apply Alclad Gloss black base (ALC 304/305) or Alclad clear base (ALC 303) before using high shine Alclad. Other gloss hobby enamel paints are suitable - test on scrap plastic first.

Prismatic Finishes

  • These colours should be applied over a dark base-auto paint or Tamiya TS paints.
  • Spray ALCLAD Prismatic at 20pi
  • Use a wide spray pattern
  • Cover the model evenly with as few passes as possible.
  • The Prismatic material will seem slightly rough when dry, this is normal.
  • Build up 2-3 coats of clear lacquer or model varnish to obtain a deep reflective finish.

Transparent colours

  • These finishes can be applied directly over Regular Alclad to produce heat stains and anodised effects
  • Alclad High Shine Finishes will require sealing with water-based clear before the application of Alclad Transparent colours.

Preparation and Spraying

  • ALCLAD should be sprayed at 15-20psi.
  • Spray 1.5 - 2.5 inches away from the model.
  • Use the airbrush like a paint brush, not an aerosol.
  • Buffing is not necessary-though tonal variation can be made by polishing selected panels with micromesh.
  • A sealer is not required.
  • Regular ALCLAD can be masked and overpainted.
  • Decal solutions can be used with Regular ALCLAD, but are not recommended for Chrome or Polished Aluminium.

Application Directions

  • Shake well before use.
  • Thoroughly clean surfaces.
  • Remove Adhesive Residue, Release Agent & Fingerprints.
  • Spray light coats at 15 - 20 psi.
  • Back ALCLAD II with any dark color.
  • Clean with lacquer thinners.
