  • 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 scotching hot ruby red with a modern metallic effect

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot Rod Flat over Red Molten Metallic First car I have painted. Still putting her back together. This paint went on easy. I gave my old ford three coats of Eastwood Red Molten Metallic over three coats of Eastwood Black Epoxy Primer and finished off with two coats of Eastwood's Hot Rod Flat. The gun I used was the Devilbliss 670 from Eastwood. I would recommend this paint!!

Questions & Answers

If this paint requires an activator with a specific ratio, is there a reducer required? If so how much? I’m laying this over epoxy primer with a sealer on a Harley. 

Asked by: BCM33
A reducer is not required but optional. This paint can be reduced up to 20% with our Urethane Reducers.

If I use your 2k primer grey should the whole car be covered as it was white but I have done some repairs and am afraid of light dark spots also I have a gallon of European clear from you guys will it be ok to clear over this molten red. 

Asked by: Edward
It is always best to apply a sealer coat, prior to your base coat. The European Clear, will certainly work for the top coat on your Molten Red Metallic. Just be sure to follow the coating times for the base coat. https://www.eastwood.com/images/pdf/productinfo_lowvoc_basecoat.pdf

I’m planning on painting my car Molten Red Metallic and wanted to know if using black primer will effect the end paint color.

Asked by: Mike
Using a black primer would not be an issue since this a darker color in general as your top coat.

Is one gallon of paint enough to an entire car like a Camaro for example?

Asked by: Camaro1971
I did my 1950 ford. The first in the review. I bought two gallons and still have 1/2 gallon left after three coats. I would say one gallon would be plenty as you also have to add in the quart of activator.. Hope this helps.
