Specifications


BASECOAT PAINT MIXING RATIOS
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.

PAINT GUN SET-UP
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

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
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.

I’m painting a golf cart. Wanting to paint it silver. It looks like it has been painted by a spray can. (Black) I want to strip it down and paint it silver. What’s the best way to strip it down to where when it’s painted silver it looks good?

Asked by: Jabo
You will want to scuff down the surface with 400-600 grit and wipe it clean. you then can apply your new color on top of it.

Would this work as a base for a candy

Asked by: Bt5641
We would advise sticking with 51549ZP, however the Chop Top Silver will work, it will just change the finish look of your candy color. Best to do a test panel to make sure you will be satisfied with the finish color.

Would this color be darker over a black primer? It's just a little lighter than I'm looking for.

Asked by: Robitron1977
To darken this color- you would really need to tint the paint. To do so, you can add some Black Basecoat paint into this color such as: https://www.eastwood.com/boulevard-black-basecoat-gallon-kit.html. You will not achieve a darker color by applying this paint over a darker primer.
