ALCLAD II Lacquers reproduce a wide range of realistic and durable metal finishes.
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.
Primer should be lightly polished with 1000/1200 wet & dry paper to give a less absorbent glossy surface .
ALCLAD High Shine -Chrome and Polished Aluminium both require a dark glossy base.
Polished Aluminium should be used over Tamiya TS-14 gloss black,or gloss black auto paint.
Chrome and only chrome should be used over gloss black model enamel paint.
SPRAYING: ALCLAD should be sprayed at 15-20psi. 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 over painted Decal solutions can be used with Regular ALCLAD,but are not recommended for Chrome or Polished Aluminium.
