BAS Basecoat
A part of two-stage automotive refinish, BAS Basecoat is a highly pigmented one component Cellulose-Acrylic coat.
Recommended Uses
Used as the first stage of two-stage basecoat/ clearcoat system in automotive refinish coating, mainly in metallic and pearl colors.
• Available in a wide range of colors.
• Excellent hiding power.
• Short drying time.
• Strong adhesion.
• Can be topcoated by 2k lacquers.
Application Instruction
• Method of Application : Conventional spray.
• Mixing Ratio : (by volume) BAS Basecoat Thinner (S506 “known as sulfacryl”) 1 Litre 0.5 Litre Stir well before mixing
• Cleaner : Clean applying tools by S501 or S502 thinner.
• Note : Stir well before mixing.
Technical Information
• Color : The required color can be obtained from basic colors using Azmix program and according to the car factory code.
• Flexibility :
• Number of Coats : Several coats to obtain opacity.
• Packaging : 0.9 L in metal can.
Substrate Treatment
• Suitable Substrates: BAS Basecoat may directly be applied over AC surfacer or SRT Primer/Surfacer (AC2). Be sure that Primer/Surfacer is sanded before coating and the surface is clean and free of oil, and other contaminants prior to coating.
• Surface Preparation (repair area):
1. Remove flecks of old paint with a scrapper, sandpaper, or SIP Paint Remover.
2. Remove dirt and water-soluble contaminants by washing with detergent and hot water solution. Rinse well and wipe surfaces thoroughly with a clean dry cloth.
3. Remove grease, oil and other contaminants with thinner (S100 or S501), then wipe surfaces thoroughly with a clean dry cloth.
4. Fill repair area with polyester putty (PE Putty).
Note: For Originally Equipment Manufacture (OEM) it is recommended to apply EPX02 “White” primer to bare substrate. Then if required, fill with a smooth layer of PE Putty.
5. Shape and sand filler using 180-240 and 320-400 grit treated sandpaper respectively.
6. Remove sanding residue using air pressure then clean by thinner (S100 or S501).
7. Surface with AC Surfacer or SRT Primer/Surfacer (AC2).
8. Sand Primer/Surfacer with 180-240 grit treated sandpaper. Then, finish sanding with 320-400 grit treated sandpaper. When sanding, a special attention should be taken toward dry to sand condition.
9. Remove sanding residue using air pressure then clean by thinner (S100 or S501).
10. If needed, for best leveling, apply PE Putty (fine) or AC Putty then surface again using AC Surfacer or SRT Primer/Surfacer (AC2).
11. Apply several coats of BAS Basecoat until opacity immediately after surface preparation to prevent
any contamination and allow each coat 5 – 10 minutes to flash until hand slick.
12. Sanding: If required, remove spraying dust with 1000-2000 grit treated sandpaper. When sanding a special attention should be taken toward dry to sand condition. Then if needed, apply a low-pressure mist coat of BAS Basecoat to sanded areas.
Drying Time
• Dry to Touch : 5-10 minutes.
• Dry to Handle : 30 minutes (minimum required time to apply clearcoat “SRT” 2k).
• Dry to Sand : 2 hours.
Storing Conditions
• BAS Basecoat is classified under high flammable materials. Containers must be kept tightly closed in a cool and well-ventilated place, protected from heat and direct sunlight.
• Shelf life is two years from packing date in unopened original containers at 10 to 40°C.
• Well-ventilated conditions should be provided during application.
• Do not breathe or inhale mist.
• Wear air-mask and avoid skin or eye contact.
