Clear Coat Sparkle & GP Backing Coat

  • Remove filter from spray gun as this will affect your finish. Separate gun to only be used for sparkle coatings.
  • Spray gun used for sparkles to be cleaned in a separate area – do not use standard cleaning system as you will get contamination.
  • Spray booth area to be cleaned after sparkle applications to stop contamination where the sparkle flex contains silicone.
  • Ensure glass is thoroughly cleaned and de greased
  • Apply 2 x full coats in opposite directions to achieve our standard sparkle finish
  • Allow coat to dry for approximately 15-20 minutes. If you require a non-standard sparkle finish then further coats can be applied.
  • One you have achieved the level of sparkle required apply 1 x medium coat of AVKOTE GP Full Colour
  • BACKING COLOUR will flash off in around 2-3 minutes. Next coat can be applied
  • IMPORTANT AVKOTE GP Sparkles contain silicone. You must add 1% contrasil to the AVKOTE GP full colour prior to application on top of the sparkle so that the coating does not pin hole
  • IMPORTANT Contrasil does not need to be added to the GP full colour if the customer is using the AVKO Silver Sparkle. This is not a flex it’s a pigment (LE93 metallic)
  • AVKO Silver Sparkle and the Rainbow Sparkle are ordered as a standard mix. All other sparkles can be ordered in either a solid or scattered application
