Glazing basecoat to achieve mirror-like surfaces. Basecoat to create a chrome looking surface with mirror effect. Perfectly suitable to coat rims, garnish mouldings, attached parts, etc. In order to protect this coating against weathering, UV and mechanical strain just overcoat with solvent-borne 2K-clearcoats.
Do not apply on thermoplastic paintwork.
Mipa 2K topcoats black glossy (e. g. Mipa PUR-T95, PUR HS-T95 or OC-T95).
Overcoat within 4 days. Allow this first coat to dry at least 8 hours at 20 °C or 30
minutes at 60 °C.
Do not sand the first coating before applying Mipa Vicrom „mirror glaze“ ! If
necessary, any defects in paintwork should be polished. It is essential to get a
perfectly smooth and faultless pre-coated surface to achieve optimal mirror effects.
When applying Mipa Vicrom „mirror glaze“ it is very important to ensure that only
very thin and uniform layers are applied. Therefore we recommend keeping a larger
distance between spray gun and the object surface and not applying too wet coatings.
In fact Mipa Vicrom „mirror glaze“ is applied carefully as mist coat to achieve the very
best mirror effect. Keep in mind: The more the black first coating shines through the
better is the mirror effect.
Overcoat Mipa Vicrom „mirror glaze“ after approx. 45-60 minutes of intermediate
flash-off time at room temperature or after approx. 30 minutes at 60 °C with Mipa 2K
solvent-based clearcoats. Apply a very thin, first layer of clearcoat in order not to
dissolve partially the basecoat Mipa Vicrom „mirror glaze“ (this would degrade
significantly the mirror effect). After an intermediate flash-off time of approx. 10-20
minutes the clearcoat can be applied completely.
Tip: The most effective way to avoid partial dissolution of the basecoat Mipa Vicrom
„mirror glaze“ is to apply a thin layer of Mipa WBC Beispritzlack prior to clearcoat
application. after 5 minutes flash-off time the final clearcoat can be applied.
