Ready to use goldsize for indoor or outdoor gilding on marble or stone.
Glycol-acrylic mixture in water dispersion.
Surfaces must be free of dust, wax, oil and grease and perfectly dry. Apply at least two layers of the goldsize with a brush. After approximately 15 minutes of drying (depending on the thickness of the Rapid layer, temperature, and relative humidity), you can either apply a second layer of Rapid or you can start gilding. Beware that the Rapid layer must be completely dry before gilding. From then on, the adhesive will remain active for the next three days to achieve high-quality gilding. In the case of a particularly absorbent surface, several layers of goldsize can be applied. It is no longer necessary to apply a primer to the stone to prevent the mission from being absorbed. Working with Kölner Rapid is easy and safe. Even work outdoors can be done fast yet with high quality. For large surfaces, Kölner Rapid can be applied by spraying after diluting with distilled water to no more than 8%. The use of a low pressure nozzle with a thickness of 1/1.5 mm is recommended.
Store in a cool, dry place in its original container, away from direct sunlight and sources of heat. Ideal storage conditions are 15-25°C and lower than 50% humidity.
Dilution percentage, application method and quantities applied may significantly affect the workability time. The most suitable application methods should be determined by experimentation on the basis of the surface being gilded and the desired result.
