Mixing Paints and Lacquers can be messy as well as dangerous to your health and the environment. It is important to protect yourself with the following when mixing Polyurethane Coatings.
- Nitrile gloves - to protect your hands
- Coveralls - to protect your skin and clothing
- Eye Goggles - to protect the eyes from splashes and vapours
- Suitable FFP3 Face Mask for breathing
Ensure you are organised with your tools and equipment to hand. You will need to mix the paint in a flat, well-ventilated, enclosed workspace such as a workbench. The key is to prevent particulates contaminating the paint and ensure there is ample ventilation.
Read the technical data sheet and adhere to the correct mixing ratio. We recommend the following materials:
- Supercup for paint mixing
- Paint stirrers
Inspect the pre-marked mixing Supercup for dust and debris. Wipe it out if necessary. Find the 2:1 ratio markers on the container; pour in the paint. Using a paint stirrer, mix the paint to blend the pigments fully. Using the 2:1 ratio markers as a guide, pour in the desired amount of thinner. Mix the paint and thinner together for several minutes, making sure the consistency is uniform.
Only empty containers may be recycled. Dispose of material residues according to local regulations.
