A durable Metallic Lacquer paint, which can be painted onto most surfaces. When used 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. High-Shine ALCLAD finishes require a glossy base coat.
PREPARATION AND SPRAYING
The surfaces to be painted must be thoroughly clean and free from dust, grease, oil and finger marks.
Apply the correct primer for the type of Alclad being used.
ALCLAD should be sprayed at 12-15psi. Spray from a distance of 2-3 inches from the surface being painted using a narrow to medium width spray fan. Use the airbrush like a paint brush-aim to cover the model in a methodical manner.
Buffing is not necessary-tonal variation can be made by polishing selected panels with Micromesh.
REGULAR ALCLAD can be masked over and painted. Decal solutions can be used with REGULAR ALCLAD, but are not recommended for HIGH SHINE ALCLAD
Apply one of these primers before using High Shine ALCLAD:
ALCLAD GLOSS BLACK BASE ALC-304/305
ALCLAD CLEAR BASE ALC-303
(Other hobby enamel paints are suitable-it is advisable to conduct a test on scrap plastic)
