Used on it’s own Coldglaze PRO 2 will replace the glaze effect on china without the use of heat. It has excellent non-yellowing characteristics. It is also mixed with pigments to repaint patterns.
Coldglaze PRO 2 is water resistant, very tough with high strength surface adhesion. It can be airbrushed even when mixed with powder pigments.
Coldglaze PRO 2 can also be mixed with Oil Colours.
To accelerate the drying process, a flash-off period of approximately 10 minutes should be allowed for the solvents to evaporate.
Ceramic & Metal: Temperatures up to 120ºC for 20 – 30 minutes normally recommended
Plastic: Care must be taken to avoid deformation to the plastic. Typically, 60ºC for 2 – 3 hours.
Ambient temperature of 20ºC, the drying time is approximately:
The mixing ratio is 4 parts resin to 1 part hardener by volume.
Thoroughly mix with a small stirrer.
pt146 Thinners may be added to thin the mix if required.
Apply either by brush or airbrush.
If required, add a small amount of pigment until the desired colour.
TO ACHIEVE A MATT FINISH
For a matt finish, simply mix Sylmasta Matting Agent S532 with the Coldglaze PRO 2 to achieve desired finish.
Mix quantities: 70g~80g of Matting Agent per litre of Coldglaze PRO 2.
TO CREATE A WHITE GLAZE
A white glaze can be created in one of two ways:
add 10% Sylmasta CGW White Paste for a high-quality, homogeneous white glaze.
To the mixed Coldglaze PRO 2 add approximately 20% by volume of PRO 2 Thinners to obtain a suitable viscosity. Adjustments to the mix can be made, dependent upon desired finish. A wet film thickness of 50 – 60 microns will result in a dry film thickness of 25 microns.
Surface Dry: 10 -15 Minutes
Hard Dry: 2 – 4 Hours
Full Properties: 7 Days
Pot Life: 7 – 8 Hours
