Dacrylate HS Polyurethane will cure at temperatures down to 0°C, however at tempertures below 15°C, the base and hardener will thicken considerably and affect application characteristics. At low ambient temperatures we would advise that base and hardener are warmed separately to 20°C before use to ensure optimum applicatin properties.

    Effect of Temperatures on Drying/Overcoating Times

Health and Safety: For more information request relevant Material Safety Datasheet.


Certain products retain solvents for longer periods, which will affect plasticizers within the plastic packaging causing damage to the finish. It is therefore not recommended that finished painted products be wrapped in bubble wrap, plastic sleeves, or similar, until coatings are fully cured as this can cause damage to the finish especially when stacked or stored in sunlight/elevated temperatures.

Damage can also occur from condensation caused by fluctuations in temperature consequently causing a 'greenhouse' effet within the packaging.

Polychromatic colours such as RAL 9006 and RAL 9007 may be susceptible to slight variations in colour depending on application methods and the type of paint. In order to obtain the best colour and appearance, these colours are best spray applied.

The above information is general information on the product but without warranty. Since conditions of service and application are beyond our control we cannot accept claims for loss, damage etc., based on this information. Dacrylate will not accept any claim for consequential or incidental damages.
