FOCUS

ageing promoter
KG M121

To obtain a more antique look, it is possible to apply the ageing promoter KG M121. It is a liquid with a high concentration of extenders, to be diluted according to the specific needs, to obtain different shades of ageing look. It is easy to use and it can be applied directly on both the reagent and on raw wood. Unlike the conventional patinas, it does not need the application of the basecoat, thus accelerating the production processes. Thanks to its formula, it can be easily removed by scotch brite, simplifying the sanding phase. It simulates the effect of a bleached patina and can me mixed with the usual pigments to obtain endless trendy shades.

NOTES TO OBTAIN AN OPTIMAL RESULT

  • The colour results can vary according to the kind of wood, the modalities of application, the drying time of Antique Design reagents, the quantities and the applied coats of equalizer, and to its potential dilution
  • Preliminary tests are suggested to ensure the desired final result
  • Do not mix the products. To obtain different colour shades, dilute only with distilled water
