Surface preparation

Degreaser with Quick wipe Degreaser.
Dry sand with p320-p400 grade paper.
Wet sand with p800-p1000 grade paper.

Application Mixing Instructions

Mixing ratio is 100 parts base : 50 parts activator by volume, 10 -20% thinner of total volume.
The mixed material is then ready for application normal pot life up to 4 hours AT 20°c
apply 2 full coats 20 mins between each coat.

Brush Application

Mirrorcryl can be brush applied with a mixing ratio of 10 parts base paint : 1 parts 108.011 Mirrorcryl RFU Hardener Apply 2 full coats each coat must be cured before application of further coats

Resistance to weathering outstanding (often shown high gloss retention even in adverse conditions after 7 years)


Recoatable after hard dry times flat when fully cured with p 1000 wet or dry.


Areas may have a light flat with P 1200 Wet or Dry and polished after 45-50 mins drying at 60°c when cold or 16 hrs drying time at 20°c.


1-3 years for unopened cans The activator must be stored in sealed containers as it reacts with atmospheric moisture and then solidifies
Ambient temperature for application is above 10°c. low humidity /dry conditions.

Points of Note

Solvent Blistering: Occur due to insufficient evaporation of the solvent, if a unthinned product is applied at a greater viscosity than 16-18 s din 4 cup at 20°c.
or flash-off times are not observed, or too heavy coats.
Unsatisfactory hiding: Problems will be avoided if an initial coat of a similar colour with good hiding power is first applied. Transparent pigmented colours may have less satisfactory opacity.
Runs: Allow to dry 40-45 mins at 60°c. or for 16 hrs at 20°c then sand off with p1200 grade paper if solid colours are involved, the area can be re-polished to the high gloss. In the case of metallic colours recoating of the affected area will be necessary.
Silicone: The best method of dealing with craters is to first spray one light single coat, allowing for a longer flash-off time than normal before applying further light coats as a last resort mirror anti-silicone additive.
Spot colour staining: This is the result of bleeding of the peroxide hardener used in polyester fillers ,please adhere to the recommended mixing ratios ensuring the hardener is mixed evenly with the polyester filler. To rectify this problem, remove polyester filler, refill and re-coat.
