Eastwood Rat Rod Satin Black - With a just-right amount of sheen, this satin black is perfect for old school street rods, bobbers and anything else that requires a unique hot rod look.

A deep black with minimal shine produces breath-taking results. A satin black finish commands attention: It draws eyes to chrome finishes and wheel details like nothing else. There's a reason enthusiasts appreciate the subtlety of black.

Eastwood has the perfect auto paint for your blacked-out vision. Our Eastwood Rat Rod Satin Black 3:1 Single State Paint gives your project a deep black with minimal shine.

Eastwood's premium Single-Stage Acrylic Urethane Topcoat provides exceptional long-lasting beauty and durability:

  • Catalyzed urethane for unsurpassed durability.
  • Highly resistant to UV rays, chemicals, chips.
  • Makes 1 sprayable gallon when mixed 3:1 with a required activator.
  • Gloss level: About 20-25 percent.
  • Approximate coverage: 125 square feet.
  • 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

This premium two-component topcoat system is blended with top-quality raw materials and advanced composition coatings technology, and is superior to acrylic, alkyd and lacquer coatings. Eastwood's single-stage urethane paints hold their gloss longer and won't yellow. It can be used by itself or in combination with Eastwood's High Solids Urethane Clear as a basecoat or clear coat system. And it comes with Eastwood's 100 percent customer satisfaction guarantee.

Thoroughly mix three parts single-stage urethane paint with one part Activator. No additional reduction is required but can be used as needed. Use caution in mixing materials as Eastwood’s single-stage urethane paint may begin to gel after approximately two hours (at 70 °F).

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). Re-coat anytime after the previous coat has flashed, or before 18 hours. After 18 hours, paint should be abraded prior to re-coating for proper adhesion purposes.

This urethane paint may be applied as a stand-alone 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.


Always wear proper eye, skin and respiratory protection. Always paint in a well-ventilated area away from sparks and open flame. Consult MSDS and product data sheets for proper safety precautions.


(Q) Do I need a clear?
(A) No, but you should use a clearcoat over metallics.

(Q) How much paint do I need?
(A) Typically one gallon per car. If you are also painting jambs, under the hood, or the trunk, use 2 gallons. For large cars and pickup trucks, use 2 gallons. Number of coats, prep and application methods will affect the amount of paint required.
