APPLICATION DATA METHOD: Brush, Conventional Spray, Roller
NUMBER OF COATS: Variable
APPLICATION INFORMATION: Thin 5% with Special Thinner 216 if required. The addition of Flattening Agent YMA715 to a finish or varnish will not affect the drying or overcoating characteristics of the product. It will not affect the durability of the finished surface. As with all the types of reducedgloss coatings, the resulting finish will not have the same stay-clean properties as a full-gloss coating. If all the mixed (matted) material is not used it may be used at a later date. Simply stir well before use. The level of gloss will decrease where the amount of Flattening Agent YMA715 is increased. The opacity (ability to hide) of the chosen finish will be affected once the clear Flattening Agent YMA715 is added. For better hide apply the unflattened finish first and finish off with the mixed (flattened) material as a last coat, or apply the unflattened finish until opacity is achieved. Stir well before use. If all of the mixed material is not used it may be saved and used at a later date. Product temperature should be minimum 15°C/60°F and maximum 30°C/86°F. Ambient temperature should be minimum 5° C/41°F and maximum 35°C/95°F. Substrate temperature should be minimum 5°C/41°F and maximum 35°C/95°F.
Follow the surface preparation instructions shown on the label of the finish or varnish to which the Flattening Agent is being added. Mixing Details - Typical Gloss Reduction using Flattening Agent YMA715 Parts Finish or Varnish :
