About Eastwood Dead Rat Flat Black Kits

Mix 3:1 with activator; no further reduction required.

After shaking paint, mix 3 parts paint with 1 part activator. Use caution mixing materials as paint may begin to gel after 2 hours at 70°F. HVLP gun setting: 8-10 PSI, with a 1.4mm-1.8mm tip. This color is formulated to give complete coverage in 2-3 coats. Allow 10 minutes flash time between coats; should be tack-free in 45-60 minutes, with full cure in 18 hours.
