AV Premium is a safe water-based, non toxic and highly versatile airbrush ready paint, suitable for all surfaces, but especially formulated for superior adhesion to metals, fibreglass, polyethylene, clear Lexanª poly-carbonate, slot car and RC bodies, and all tuning and automotive applications.
On some of these surfaces we recommend a base coat of the Polyurethane Primer (62.061) for best results. Premium colors are flexible and exceptionally durable and permit prolonged exposure to weather without fading or losing their brilliance.
Premium colors have been formulated with micro permanent pigments and an extremely resistant, exterior grade hybrid resin-polyurethane base, which withstands impacts, resists chipping and cracking, as well as direct exposure to heat and outdoor elements without cracking or fading, and is fuel residue proof up to a least 35% Nitro.
AV Premium colors have superior flow, they are self-levelling and brush on with exceptional ease. For airbrushing, the colours can be used directly from the bottle when using a nozzle sizes of 0.3mm or larger. For the metallic colours some dilution might be necessary, and for smaller nozzles (0.2mm or less) thin with Reducer (62.066). The recommended compressor pressure setting is 30-60psi (2-4 bar).
The range consists of 20 Bright Opaque Colours, 23 Dazzling Metallic’s and Fluorescent’s, and 9 Shimmering Transparent Candy Colours. All colours are as suitable for detail work as for covering large surfaces and can be applied by brush as well as by airbrush.
The range is complete with 8 auxiliary products including the Transparent Base-Coat and the Reducer, Primer, Varnishes and Drying Retarder. For a automotive refinishing and as an extra protective final coating, we recommend a catalysed urethane clear varnish (spray can or airbrush).
