Base Coats 

Base coats are generally clear: they prepare the carrier material for a subsequent top coat.

They protect the material and provide the optimal conditions for the finishing coat. Specific configurations appropriately accentuate the substrate and are particularly transparent for instance for building up high gloss or lightening for natural wood effects.

Hesse Lignal Base Coats



The high-build configuration of pigment primers counteracts surface irregularities.

At the same time they provide optimal preparation of the substrate for subsequent application of a coloured lacquer. The primer can be applied in several layers with intermediate sanding until the desired smoothness is achieved.

Finishing & Mutli-Coat Lacquers


Finishing lacquers can be formulated to be transparent or coloured and in most cases require prior application of a base coat or primer.

Their compelling features are a wide range of gloss levels, colours or a special feel.
