AutoBorne™ Sealers are a professional, waterborne DTS (Direct To Substrate) primer for application direct to aluminium, wood and most plastics. It is not a direct-to-metal (DTM) primer. When working on bare metal, first apply a self etching DTM primer.

AutoBorne™ Sealers are waterborne sealers designed for use with waterborne and solvent borne basecoat paints. The sealers should be colour-keyed with the basecoat or mid‐coat colour to be applied for improved coverage. AutoBorne Sealers are easy to apply, dry quick, self‐level and may be dry‐sanded. As part of a complete custom system topcoat with Auto-Air Colors or Wicked Colors for a seamless colour system as well as any other type of waterborne or solvent‐based paint.

Preparation of Substrates:

  • Harder plastics such as polystyrene may require application of an adhesion promoter prior to application of sealer.
  • Metal (except aluminium) requires a self-etching DTM primer before application of AutoBorne sealer.
  • Wash all surfaces to be painted with wax and grease remover.
  • If sanding is required, prepare surface with 600 - 800 grade sandpaper.
  • If surface is sanded, wash off all residues with wax and grease remover.

Conditions:

  • 70 °F / 21 °C with humidity levels under 65%
  • Best results are achieved with increased air temperatures in a non-humid environment
  • Use fans to assist air drying
  • Painting in or drying paint in lower temperatures or higher humidity levels will require extended flash and drying times.

Equipment set-up:

  • Spray gun fluid tip 1.3 - 1.4mm
  • Touch-up gun fluid tip size 0.8 - 1.2mm
  • Approx. 19 - 28 psi inlet, adjust gun for wetted coats which are not over-atomized
  • Not recommended for use with an airbrush

Application:

  • Reduce 9:1 with 4012 High Performance Reducer (approx. 10% per volume)
  • Allow reduced mixture to set 10 minutes or more prior to spraying
  • Reduction allows for a smoother finish and improved coating integrity.
  • 2 - 3 coats for complete coverage
  • Re-coat (between coats) approx. 10 minute flash time or until dried to a matte finish mid-coat (or base coat), approx. 60 minutes.
  • Use air flow or heat (175°F or less) to assist flashing between coats
  • Re-coat paint after approximately 30 minutes drying time
  • Dry to sand after approximately 60 minutes for best shaving. Dry sand only.
  • Use of heat reduces dry times. Do not exceed 175 F°
  • Dry sand with 800 - 1000 grit paper
