Paint coatings for glass and acrylic sheets
Our paint for glass is available in several finishes: solid colours, frosted, translucent, metallic, sparkle and crackle effects.
Avkote GP is a 2K spray application which saves time and money as it requires no Primer and no baking off as it chemically cures with the substrate from only 8-10 degrees or above, it can be used after 24 hours. After, 3-5 minutes: paint is tack free, 10 minutes: paint is touch dry. At 20°C you can obtain a GTO cross hatch test, after 4 Hours, the coating is 70% cured. In one hour at 20°C-dry enough for handling. Our paint can also be left to chemically cure for 24 hours and it can also be cured with catalytic heaters in 10-30 minutes. Paint can be applied wet on wet making it very quick in use, from the mixing to the coverage to the drying times. and is touch dry in 5 minutes very economical as dry film thickness is only 40-60 micron.
Can be applied vertically on A frames, horizontally on trestles or a rotating table.
Theoretical coverage is approx. 8 metres squared- excluding loss caused by over spray.
