Surface Preparation

  • New work: the substrate needs to be clean, dry and free of fats and oils. The substrate has to be primed with the appropriate primer for that substrate.
  • Existing work: clean, degrease and sand. Remove loose, flaking or cracked paint layers. Treat bare spots as new work

Application Conditions

10-30 degrees C. Relative humidity < 80%. Temperature of the substrate at least 3 degrees C above the dew point.


If conventional spraying is used, the gloss might be somewhat lower.

Question: Hi there, I am using Mathys Fassilux Aqua XPE Satin - Colour: RAL1023 for painting wooden cupboard doors. The doors have been previously painted, so I sanded them down to roughen the surface for the paint to stick better, then applied Zinsser BIN shellac primer and then the Fassilux, as a thin layer (just one coat in places, two in others). A week on, and the paint still feels somewhat tacky. The same occurred on Zinsser BIN primed ply board - a week on, and still a bit tacky. Tacky to the extent that if you put one Fassilux painted surface touching another Fassilux painted surface, they stick to each other a bit. Is there anything I can do to speed up the drying process? Talcum powder? Some shelves I painted with Mathys Pegacryl Satin - Colour: RAL6027, same conditions, same time, happily accepted 2 coats, dried completely in 24 hours and are now done, whereas the Fassilux is still playing up... Thanks very much for your help!
Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

Please refer to the Technical Data Sheet (TDS) for each product which can be downloaded from the 'DATASHEETS' tab on each respective product page on our website. Here it states that Mathys Fassilux Aqua XPE Satin should be touch dry in 3 hours, recoatable after 24 hours and full hardness will be achieved after 1 week. Mathys Pegacryl Satin is quicker drying at touch dry in 1 hour, recoatable in 24 hours and full hardness will be achieved after 2 days. All estimated drying times are based on 20°C and 50% r.h., low temperatures, lack of air flow and high relative humidity will prolong the drying/curing process.
