Eastwood 4:1 Blue Pearl - Basecoat - 128oz

Product Overview:

  • Apply a durable urethane finish wherever you live in the continental US, even CA
  • Choose a fast, medium or slow Low-VOC Activator
  • Makes 5 sprayable quarts
  • Clearcoat is required on basecoat paints
  • Mixes 4:1 with your activator choice
  • Approximate coverage: 160 SQ FT
  • Flake/Pearl Particle size: 10-60 microns
  • Max Temperature: Paint will handle up to 300 degrees without delamination, but color shift may occur, so it should not be used in a high heat setting
  • Made in the USA
  • A dynamic shade of blue with fine pearl effect particles

Basecoat Paint Kit is a low-VOC system, so it meets regulatory limits in highly-regulated areas, eliminating the need to switch to a waterborne system.

Thoroughly mix four parts Low-VOC Urethane Basecoat with one part Low-VOC Urethane Activator. Use Fast (50308ZP) for small jobs, or temps below 75°F; Medium (50309ZP) for small jobs, or temps between 70-85°F; or Slow (50310ZP) for large jobs, or temps above 80°F. Keep in mind, other factors, such as humidity, air flow and total film thickness should also be considered. In many situations, it will be useful to add 10%-20% 50104ZP Zero-VOC Reducer to aid sprayabliity, flow and leveling. Remember, this is an activated basecoat system; only mix as much as is needed. Pot life is about 2 hours at 70°F.

HVLP Gun: Fluid Tip 1.2-1.4 mm Inlet Spray Pressure 8-10 psi
Conventional Gravity: Fluid Tip 1.2-1.5 mm Inlet Spray Pressure 40-50 psi
Conventional Siphon: Fluid Tip: 1.3-1.6 mm Inlet Spray Pressure 40-50 psi

Apply Low-VOC Urethane Basecoat color in two full medium wet coats with a consistent 50% overlap pattern. Allow five to ten minutes flash time between coats. Flash time should increase if additional coats are applied. Most colors will cover in two coats. A third and final coat may be applied to set even metallic pattern. If required, apply this light coat immediately after the previous full wet coat, moving the gun with faster passes, from further away. Mist basecoat onto the wet film until the metallic pattern is uniform.

Basecoat should dry dust-free within 10-20 minutes. May be lightly sanded in as few as 20 minutes. Wait at least 30 minutes before wet sanding. Wait 45-90 minutes before taping on the fresh film. All dry times are approximate, at 70°. Temperature, air flow, total film thickness and other variable may extend these times.

Questions & Answers

What kind of primer is best for this paint after using the epoxy primer and the polyester primer surfacer

Asked by: Harleyboy1
The Polyester primer can be block sanded smooth and this paint can be applied directly over top. If you wish to apply a sealer coat you certainly can. We would recommend using our Epoxy primer reduced by 20% with our Urethane reducer.

My Corvette is black now, can I use this over the black and cover completely without a darker shade of blue than I want?

Asked by: Bob35170
We would recommend using our Gray Epoxy primer to seal out the old black color before proceeding to this blue.

Can this be sprayed over red primer? 

Asked by: Dillon
While it is certainly possible the color primer we used for this color was gray. So if you like the color you see now we recommend a gray primer.

The color chip chart says this has to be applied over Pure White, but I don't see any mention of that here.  Is that correct?
