Primer application is not always required: A light sanding, with 800 Grit Sandpaper, of the old paint is often enough to recreate the adhesion. Dry thoroughly, use our degreaser (to avoid reactions due to invisible contaminants), and collect the dust with our wipe pad. In no instance should the existing paint be stripped.
With the 250ml and 500ml versions, the BMW - FELGEN SILBER Car Rim Paint is delivered ready for use
The BMW - FELGEN SILBER paint for kits is delivered pure. To obtain the necessary viscosity, add 70% of V1 thinner (supplied in the kit)
The BMW - FELGEN SILBER Car Rim Paint (solvent-based matt base) is very easy to apply: By applying thin passes with any type of gun (1.3 or 1.4 nozzle)
The thinner the passes, the quicker the drying, so the interval between each layer will be shorter: At an ambient temperature of 20°C, the coats are applied one after the other, whereas in cold temperature you must wait 5 minutes.
Recommended professional application method: A very thin pass (to detect any defect) then one or two coats with a 5min interval Finish with a half layer with less pressure and at a larger spacing from the support;
Clear coat: Apply topcoat after 15min, with any of our clear coats (See Topcoats category) Don’t wait to apply topcoat: beyond 30min, the adhesion is not sufficient anymore, in theory.
Yield: 6-7m²/L in 2 coats For aerosols, the coverage is 1 aerosol = 0.6m² max
