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.

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

I have a few areas that seem a little grainy, can I sand the basecoat before applying clearcoat?

Asked by: 52Mercman
Yes, this can be sanded prior to applying your clear coat. We recommend finishing with 600-800 grit prior to applying your clear.

I understand this in non metallic and non pearl why after 18 hours of sanding do I have to apply another base coat?  Can I apply the base coat, sand next day, clear following day?

Asked by: Kenn
You do not have to apply additional paint after 18 hours. After 18 hours has elapsed; this will have fully cured. Once fully cured nothing further will chemically bond to the surface so you will need to sand prior to applying your clear to obtain a mechanical bond between the two.

A gallon of Marine Paint will cover 400 sq. ft. does this mean that a gallon of Eastwood Basecoat will give a thick covering of 160 sq. ft.?

Asked by: Jimmy
This kit yields 5 useable quarts once mixed. This will cover about 150-160 SQ FT.

I’m painting a 52 gmc. Will one gallon of paint and clear coat be enough to paint the whole truck not the bed floor? 

Asked by: Andrew
One gallon kit will yield about 5 useable quarts so one of these should be enough for what you plan to apply to.
