Directions for use


  • Polywhite should be diluted with water with 7-15% water per volume, depending on the equipment used.
  • To increase the resistance to abrasion and household chemicals, it is possible to incorporate 5% Procat crosslinking catalyst by volume into the mixture.
  • It is possible to use Mixol to slightly color the product. It is strongly recommended to perform a test with a small quantity of product beforehand. Do not exceed 90 ml of dye per liter of Polywhite.
  • Finely sand the surface to be finished with sandpaper with grit adapted to the desired type of finish.
  • Some solvent-based primers may prevent proper lacquer adhesion if not completely cured. Ensure primers have been sanded with at least a 320/400 grit paper, and that any risk of contamination has been eliminated.
    Proprime Primer is recommended as an undercoat before applying Polyblanc.

  • The surface must be clean and free of oil, dust and any contaminants that may cause weak adhesion or create fisheyes. Clean the surface with water or denatured alcohol. Allow the surface to dry completely before applying


  • Mix the product well.
  • To achieve perfect atomization, use equipment with a 1.8 mm needle.
  • Apply a coat and let dry 30 minutes. If necessary, apply a second coat.
  • If more than 24 hours have passed between two applications, lightly sand the surface with very fine sandpaper.
  • Drying time may vary depending on film thickness, humidity and temperature.
  • Spray Polywhite using a conventional HVLP airless / air assisted or turbine system. Consult the manufacturer's recommendations to determine the configuration of the parameters based on the viscosity of the coating and the intended use.
