Description

OverviewAlclad II Lacquer has quickly become the preferred choice of many modellers for Natural Metal Finishes. The quality of Alclad II has led to its diverse use including achitectural models, custom built motorcycles, Hollywood special effects, angling accessories.For use on injection plastic kits a primer is necessary. Regular Alclad is similar in strength to lacquer/cellulose car paints-injected polystyrene plastics frequently have areas which Alclad can craze. High-Shine Alclad finishes require a glossy base coat.Plastic primers and auto primers should be lightly polished with 1000/1200 wet & dry paper to give a less absorbent smooth surface.Preparation and SprayingThe surfaces to be painted must be thoroughly clean and free from dust, grease, oil and finger marks. Apply the correct primer for the type of Alclad being used. Alclad should be sprayed at 12-15PSI. Spray from a distance of 2-3 inches from the surface being painted using a narrow to medium width spray fan. Use the airbrush like a paint brush-aim to cover the model in a methodical manner. Buffing is not necessary-tonal variation can be made by polishing selected panels with Micromesh. Regular Alclad can be masked over and painted. Decal solutions can be used with Regular Alclad, but are not recommended for High Shine Alclad.
