With the UVLS Clears, the company Createx now has three new clear varnishes based on aliphatic acrylic polyurethane resin in its assortment. The water-based varnishes featuring gloss, matt or sateen finish are perfect for both a strong undercoat and as a clear varnish either under or above liveries with Createx paints and admittedly on almost all surfaces including metal, plastic, wood, etc. They are recommended for model construction, signs or even Cosplay costumes, because they have proven to have a high level of flexibility. The clears are also great as primers for vehicle designing thanks to their rust protection.
As you can tell by the name, the varnish protects against UV radiation and makes artwork particularly durable and non-yellowing. The UVLS Clears are highly suitable for interior and exterior vehicle work and are extremely impact-proof and abrasion-resistant. The UVLS Gloss Clear is also recommended as a preferred medium for mixing Candy2O concentrates, because it creates an even layer of paint, which can be applied in a more saturating manner than with prior mix mediums. UVLS Clears are best diluted with the 4011 reducer from Createx and can be sprayed with an airbrush or a varnish pistol featuring a nozzle size of 0.5 mm or greater. Whether as a primer or clear varnish, you can plan on allowing the material a good 48 hours in order to dry completely. You’ll need roughly 15 minutes for post-work layering and 45-60 minutes for taping things up.
The UVLS Clears are available for purchase in containers sized 60, 120, 240, 480, and 960 ml. Each container can be had starting at 8.87 EUR/5.99 USD (RRP).
