Product Description:

Mutant CrystalZ

Mutant CrystalZ™ is a self-activated liquid crystalizing mask that works over any base coat, sanded clear coat, primer or any other prepped paint surface. With Mutant CrystalZ™ you can use any contrasting colours you choose.

Mutant CrystalZ™ is a specialty liquid mask solution that crystalizes as it dries to form a temporary stencil/mask which is used to create intricate crystal patterns over your chosen ground coat colour. Mutant CrystalZ™ can be used on anything that can be painted.

Application Guide

Step 1
Correctly prepare and clean the
item to be painted.
Scuff surface if applying Mutant
CrystalZ™ directly over a clear coat.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Step 2
Apply chosen BaZecoat™ ground
colour and allow to dry until it can
be handled.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Step 3
Using a soft lint free cloth, apply a liberal
amount of Mutant CrystalZ™ to the ground
coat taking care not to miss any areas or
to apply too much that may pool in areas.
 
 
 
 
Step 4
Allow to dry slowly so crystals have time
to grow as big as possible. Avoid excessive
airflow or heat if possible (turn off booth airflow
or avoid applying during the hottest part of the day)    
Once crystal solution is fully dried and crystals
have formed, it is now ready to apply the contrast
colour over the crystal stencil/mask.
 
 
Step 5
Apply very thin basecoat in light mist
coats over the crystal stencil until a thin
even coating or colour is achieved. Wet
or heavy coats will trap the Crystals
underneath and lead to messy poorly defined
crystal patterns or total failure.
*For this step basecoat may be reduced up to an
additional 20%
 
Step 6
Once contrast colour is applied and dry to
handle, the crystal solution can now be removed,
leaving behind the crystal pattern contrast colour.
*Note the contrast coat is not applied too heavily
and we can still see the ground coat colour coming
through our contrast colour.
 
 
 
Step 7
Remove crystals using warm water and a
lint free cloth or fine Scotchbrite pad. Using
little to no pressure, carefully rub the surface
until the crystal solution is completely removed.
Use special care to remove all crystals as some can
be quite small and hard to see. Do not rub too
hard as you may start removing the contrast coat.
 
 
Step 8
Once all the crystal solution is removed,
carefully dry the item and blow off with
compressed air ready for clear coat application.
Apply DNA™ Diamond Clear™ or Flat Clear as
per relevant TDS.
 
 
 
 
Special Instructions
As drying speed affects the way the crystals form, your working environment will have a big influence on the finished pattern of the Mutant CrystalZ™. Heat, humidity, airflow, application methods and amounts will all affect final result.
If using a cured 2k finish as the ground coat, it must be fine sanded and cleaned with DNA™ Isopropyl Cleaner.
Mutant CrystalZ™ is sold ready for use.
Darker contrast colours over lighter ground coats will generally produce a more impacting result with cleaner more well defined crystal patterns.
