CARAZZO Univeral lacquer

Introduction Carazzo is a water based lacquer with a satin matt finish. The lacquer is based on a PU acrylic resin and for indoor use only. It is a universal lacquer, very strong and wear-resistant. Even with dark colours, the lacquer is scratch-resistant and does not shine up when cleaned.

You can directly apply the Carazzo on surfaces previously painted with a water based paint. For surfaces with an oil based paint finish and bare surfaces it is recommended to first apply the Pure & Original CarazzoPrim, followed by two coats of Carazzo.

Preparation Most painting problems derive from bad preparation or application. The surface that you are going to paint should be clean, dry, free of dust and grease. Due to a good surface preparation, you can help the paint system with long-term protection.

Most important characteristics • Easy to apply • Excellent chemical and abrasion resistance • Superior matt and colour retention qualities • Fast drying • Nice flow • Scratch resistant • Scrub-resistant • Easy to clean

1. Remove all surface pollution and loose particles. Including lime and rust. 2. Shiny surfaces must always be sanded till matt. 3. Remove all grease, moisture and nicotine stains.

First apply one coat of Pure & Original CarazzoPrim. Then apply at least two coats of Carazzo. The more thin coats you apply, the more durable the lacquer will be. For a durable floor, we recommend two to three thin coats. Surface wood: sand the wood and make sure that the surface is clean. Fill imperfections and holes with a wood filler. Apply one coat of CarazzoPrim. It is recommended to lightly sand the surface in between coats to remove raised grain and to make sure it is free of dust. The wood may have up to 16% moisture content. Finish with at least two coats of Carazzo. Surface concrete and cement floors: the concrete must have cured and should be dry. Concrete may have 5% moisture content. Degrease the surface with Pure & Original Super Cleaner. If the concrete is not porous, rough it up until it is open. Test with a water sprayer. If the water immediately enters the concrete, the concrete is porous enough and ready to be painted. Start with one coat of CarazzoPrim diluted with 15% water. Let it dry thoroughly and finish with two to three coats of Carazzo. Surface cast floor: ask your dealer for advice. Surface oil based paint: thoroughly sand the surface and remove dust with Pure & Original Super Cleaner. Let dry. Apply one coat of Pure & Original CarazzoPrim and finish with two coats of Carazzo.
