Acrylic topcoat for the protection of both precious and imitation metal leaf gilding. The product is formulated to guarantee high resistance to yellowing and gives the gilded surface a gloss finish.
Prepare the product with a suitable catalyst (page 119) and catalyze to 50%: 1 part of catalyst and 2 parts of varnish. Catalyze the protection as it is used and not all together to prevent the product from drying out and consequently becoming unusable. Then apply the protective, diluted with a suitable thinner (page 120), by brush, pad or spray in two successive coats. For spray application, dilute the first coat at 40-50% and after 6-8 hours apply a second coat diluted at 20-30%. For application by brush or pad, dilute the first coat at 70-100% and after at least 6-8 hours apply a second coat diluted at 20-30%. When applying by brush it is important to proceed with a rap- id and continuous application, without pauses or interruptions, since the product tends to dry within 15-30 minutes.
