2000 Spraythane Hi Gloss

Spraythane 2000 is a truly unique product that combines the deepest gloss and finest definition of image available with an enormous working temperature range, laboratory-strength resistance and the worlds most sophisticated colour matching system into a product used throughout southeast Asia since 1997.

Need a high-gloss colour? You cannot go past Spraythane 2000. The Gloss only finish (100% gloss level) offers high definition colour at curing times and user-friendliness that other can only dream of. Other finishes including Satin (55-65%), Matt finishes (25-35%), Zilch (15%) and textures are available in Spraythane 850 and the GLOBAL family of finishes. With unsurpassed gloss, durability and resistance, it is idea for kitchens, vanities and any other high quality household or commercial application.

If you’re a designer or specifier, you’ll love the range of colours – more than 50,000 electronically recorded – and growing! And when comparing high-gloss finishes, Definition of Image, (DOI) is the key. Spraythane 2000 delivers a stunningly undistorted DOI by a unique combination of ingredients and additives that “fit” seamlessly to offer an unobstructed gloss finish. Colours appear deeper and more brilliant. Reflections are crisp and sharp.

In addition to the good looks, Spraythane 2000 exhibits extraordinary resistance to chemicals and scratches once cured. Ideal for kitchen and bathroom cabinets, as a protective topcaot over timber (Spraythane 2000 Clear), or as a durable finish for shopfronts and commercial interiors.

Think weather and working conditions would affect where the product can be used? Think again. Spraythane 2000 was initially designed and exported to manufacturers in southern China (not to mention tropical Queensland) to perform in their extremes of heat and cold. Combine these design reuirements with three Part B hardeners for optimal spraying conditions regardless of the temperature, and you have a product that is effective from just under 10°C to 40°C and high humidity.

Coverage Rate

Approximately three square metres per mixed litre in practice. Variations to coverage and loss from overspray can occur due to many variables, including: shape and size of the substrate, gun type and settings, gloss level of the product and the colour selected.

Thinning and Working Temperature

Thin from 10%-20% with 850S or 900S solvent (depending on working temperature and conditions – see below).

2000 Part B Selection


Compatible Products

Compatible Primers: 146e series etch primer (for metal substrates); and 730,732, 734 polyurethane, and 750, 766, 774, polyester sanding primers (for timber/MDF)

Part B Hardener: 2015B (for cool-mild conditions); 2025B (for medium-hot conditions); and 2035B (for hot-extreme conditions)

Spraying Solvents:850S (solvent for normal conditions); and 900S (solvent for warm-extreme conditions)

Pot Life Estimates

The estimated pot life at 20? is 4 hours.

Higher temperatures will affect pot life. During the pot life the material viscosity will increase. Slight thinning towards the end of pot life may be required to maintain spraying viscosity.

Dry Time

Touch Dry: 15-20 minutes

Print-Free: 3-4 hours

Recoat:3-4 hours (if no sanding is required); overnight if sanding is needed

Time to Packing:16-24 hours from final coat

*Stated times are based on using 2025B and 850S solvent in normal conditions. All dry times are dependent upon working temperature, part B and solvent selections.

Suggested Equipment

Coventional Spray Gun: USe a premium two-pack gun such as the Anest Iwata W200 Suction with 1.5mm needle or W400 Gravity with 1.4mm needle at 275-310kPa (40-45psi).
Pressure Pot: Set pressure to 55kPa (8psi) and maintain gun pressure at 275kPa (40psi) Use a premium pressure gun with 1.2mm needle.

Mix or handle product in s spray booth or equivalent ventilated space. Spray application in a spray booth is required using a positive pressure air-fed face mask.


Air clean prepared surface, wipe over with a dampened lint-free cloth or tack cloth removing all dust or fine particles. Change cloth regularly.

In order to ensure you achieve the true colour and uniform coverage in application, it is important to use a suitable base coat with all edges covered and no “rub throughs”.

Prepare and prime as per data sheet with Evic 146e Series Etch and Protect Primer. Available in light grey, white, black & buff. If sanding is required, use 728, 732, 734 polyurethane primer. Do not us Polyester Primer (PE) over 146e Etch.

MDF BOARD: Prepare and prime as per data sheet with either Evic Groups: 728/730/734 polyurethane primers or 750/766/774 polyester primers.

MELAMINE: Properly sand surface with 240 to 320 grit free-cut paper, removing any appearance of gloss. Solvent wash with 825S, de-dust and apply 2000 Spraythane directly.
Warning–2000 Spraythane does not stick to unsanded melamine. This surface must be prepared correctly (especially in corners or hard to reach areas.) Melamine easily wears out sandpaper which if worn and continually used it will actually start polishing the surface, This makes coating adhesion impossible.
Make sure the melamine surface is actually sanded and not polished.

For best results, apply 2000 Spraythane in two double-header cross coats overlapping each pass. Rack and allow 45-60 minutes to dry, then recoat with a final double-header coat.

Alternatively, apply three wet-on-wet coats allowing minimal flash-off between coats. Always spray away from yourself to minimise overspray. If intercoat sanding is required, cut back with 320-500 grit sandpaper or 3M P600 sanding disc.

2000 Spraythane is a High Solids, high build coating and when applied evenly and correctly it will present with a slight “orange peel” look. This is correct and should be ignored. Simple leave 2000 Spraythane and over the next 10 or so minutes it will settle and self level to a smooth peel free, glass like surface.

NOTE: Over thinning, using over slow solvent/hardener mixes or over applying Spraythane 2000 if an effort to get 2000 to lay down level instantly once sprayed will only leave to Excessive application issues such as runs, sags, solvent boil and colour float or separation. Be patient and apply high solids coatings as intended and be rewarded with beautiful perfectly level glass like gloss every time.


Allow 45-60 minutes flash off time then bake at up to 60? for one to two hours.


Usually buffing is not necessary with 2000 Spraythane, however if it is required only allow overnight drying as the coating becomes extremely hard and resistant after curing.

Denib the surface using 2000 grit microfine wet sandpaper or 800-1200 grit ultra fine dry sanding disc. Buff the surface with a foam waffle pad combined with 3M Perfect-it or AutoGlym buffing compound. Finer buffing or sanding scratches are removed by polishing with a bleach waffle pad and 3M’s Foam Polishing Glaze or Ultrafine Glaze. Due to its hardness, 2000 must be buffed within 16-24 hours of the final coat.

Buffing can have a slight effect on the appearance of colour, so care should be taken if you place buffed material adjacent to unbuffed surfaces.

To clean stains, marks or spills from 2000 Spraythane once cured, use 3M Glass & Laminate Cleaner or equivalent. Spray directly onto the surface and wipe off with a clean, dry (preferably lint-free) cloth. Alternatively, for cleaning without chemicals and removing fingerprints and smudging, the Scotch-Brite High Performance Cloth is recommended.

Because of the huge variations that occur in paint charts, samples, etc., it is your responsibility to ensure any colour we provide is correct or acceptable to you and your customer before you use it.

2000 Spraythane is a high solids, high flowing gloss, self levelling product and if it is applied by “over stepping” it’s application perameters by applying at extra high build while using slower solvent/hardener combinations at times it can suffer from minor colour float. Colour float is a phenomenon where the tinters used to achieve the particular shade can slightly separate and one of the colours move to the surface, slightly changing the colour. Where possible avoid applying the product in this fashion. If it is thought a colour is displaying this problem it is best to apply carefully in thin coats allowing extra flash off time between coats.

LEAD FREE COLOURS: The Australian Uniform Paint Standard requires that all paints used for any furniture application contain less than 0.1% lead by weight in the dry film. We encourage all applicators to adhere to this standard.

To meet this requirement, all 2000 Spraythane colours are manufactured with lead-free pigments. 2000 uses Evic Groups unique “Colour Bases” which ensure virtually all bright yellows, oranges, reds, lime green etc will exhibit good to excellent opacity while only using lead-free pigments. There are a few exceptions.

The Evic Group will not accept liability for any colour once it has been applied. We recommend reading Evic’s Guide to Colour for comprehensive details of our colour matching services and terms and conditions of sale.

GLOSS LEVELS:Products are manufactured to conform to the gloss levels shown ±5%. Levels are read using a 60? head according to AS1580 method 602.2.

Up to 12 months if stored in properly sealed containers. Part”B” is moisture sensitive and should be stored in full containers with minimal air pad. If Part B is aged it will appear thicker and yellowed, it should not be used in this condition.

This is a specialised industrial coating and should only be applied by experienced and competent tradesmen and in accordance with the manufactures specification.
