Instructions for painting the frame and the fork
The bike frame must be clean, prepared, with its former paint sanded in surface with abrasive sheet 500.
In order to get a natural adhesion, without any sanding, it would be better to follow 3 painting steps successively, without exceeding 30 min between each :
A – Apply the black base paint in a few fines passes
B– Apply the Chameleon paint in a few very fine passes until the black background is covered.
C – Apply the varnish in 2 or 3 coats. Wait for 5 to 10 minutes between each pass. It is a high quality varnish offering an easy application, and an accelerated air drying : After 2 hours, the bike can be reassembled.
Do i need a primer coat ?
Before applying our paints, no primer is necessary, but in the following cases :
In these cases, you need an adhesion primer or a levelling primer.
If you wish to strengthen your varnish and apply one or two passes more, to keep the paint from being hit by stone shards, you will find here our special varnishes and ceramic varnish.
How to apply stickers ?
Let the Chameleon paint dry for 1 to 2 hours, then wipe the surface with an abrasive sponge. Finally, apply the stickers and the varnish.
