Available in dozens of colors, Eastwood’s Intermix Paint System custom mixed paint choices all feature the most modern automotive refinish technologies paired with premium raw materials in an incredibly user-friendly system that delivers beautiful results in a wide range of colors including classic solids and eye pleasing metallics.
- Same quality formulation as Eastwood’s standard paint colors
- Choose your own, unique one-of-one color
- One kit makes up to 2 complete gallons
- Use as a single stage or may be topcoated with clear
- Approximate coverage: 125 SQ FT per gallon
- 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
May be used as a one-step single-stage topcoat, or in combination with Premium European or Premium Urethane Show Clearcoat for even better protection and a deeper gloss. Either way, this advanced urethane color system is the ideal choice to perfectly complete any restoration project, from antique and classics to more modern muscle cars and resto-mods.
*Due to the extra course metallic content, the use of a clearcoat is strongly recommended.
About Eastwood Grasshopper Green Metallic Intermix Paint Kit
SINGLE-STAGE PAINT MIXING RATIOS
Thoroughly mix three parts single-stage urethane paint with one part 21856ZP Activator. No additional reduction is required. Use caution in mixing materials as Eastwood’s single-stage urethane paint may begin to gel after approximately two hours (at 70 °F).
PAINT GUN SET-UP
HVLP Gun: Fluid Tip 1.3-1.5 mm Inlet Spray Pressure 25-30 psi
Conventional Gravity: Fluid Tip 1.3-1.6 mm Inlet Spray Pressure 45-50 psi
Conventional Siphon: Fluid Tip: 1.4-1.8 mm Inlet Spray Pressure 45-50 psi
Apply single-stage urethane paints in two to three medium wet coats as necessary to achieve sufficient coverage, allowing ten minute flash between coats. Additional coats may be necessary to achieve total coverage for some metallic colors. A final “fog coat” may be applied with metallic colors to help set an even flake pattern and /or adjust flake orientation. A dry film thickness of approximately 2 mil is recommended. Paint should be dust free within 10-15 minutes and tack-free within one hour (at 70 °F). Recoat anytime after the previous coat has flashed, or before 18 hours. After 18 hours, paint should be abraded prior to recoating for proper adhesion purposes.
This urethane paint may be applied as a stand-along single-stage system, or in combination with Eastwood’s High Solids Urethane Clear as a basecoat/clearcoat system. Additionally, Urethane Clear may be integrated into Urethane color. When combining the two systems, be sure to activate each side (the paint and the clear) separately, with their own activators at the correct mix ratios, before blending.
When used as a Single-Stage Urethane Paint, this coating may be wet-sanded and polished for increased depth and gloss like any other urethane topcoat. Care should be taken when lightly cutting metallic colors to prevent disturbing aluminum flake.
