Product Overview:

Description

Eastwood Coastal Highway Blue Basecoat Paint adds the superior durability of urethane to the ease of conventional basecoats.

  • 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
  • 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 simple solid blue with high saturation, this one is shaded with a bit of red tint to make it even deeper and richer in color

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.

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

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.

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.

Can I apply base coat over the your single stage paint and how much prep do I do

Asked by: Mark
the Prep would be like a normal paint pep. Wash the car with Dawn dish soap and water, wipe down with Pre. Sand car with 400 grit paper wipe with pre and you can apply the base coat. If you sand through at any spots and you have bare metal showing, then in those areas you will need to apply some primer before going to your base coat.

Base coat/clear coat vs Single stage with a clear coat, Pros and cons? trying to decide which way to go. Thanks

Asked by: JZ63
SSU is basically an all in one application (unless labeled as a metallic or pearl which should have a clear applied over top of). This means essentially the clear is already mixed in. This typically yields a slightly lesser glossed appearance in comparison to a Base coat option which you apply a clear coat over top of. Base coat paints a re a little more user friendly since you have the opportunity to sand out imperfections before you apply the clear coat.

Thinking of painting my car a matte/satin blue would this product work with your matte clear? Never painted two stage, how long would I wait after applying base coat to apply the clear and is there any prep between the two?

Asked by: Sullybear
This color would certainly work with our matte clear, you will have to wait at least 45 min to topcoat the clear on the top.

I'm a weekend warrior and I don't have the room or probably the time to spray the whole vehicle at once. With Eastwood Coastal Highway Blue Base coat, would i be safe spraying panels at different times and still having a uniform blue color?

Asked by: Jasonj105
If you were to paint the panels at different times it is likely to have a slight variation in the color. Consider Temp. and Humidity, as well as your spraying speed and gun set up. Painting in a controlled paint booth would really help you, as for painting the panels one at a time.
