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.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basecoat Misrepresented I chose the Bonneville Black Cherry as my basecoat.The photo in your color chart is not what I got.Its much darker and I shot it thinking that maybe it would cure lighter after I applied the clearcoat. It didn't.Your system worked very well and the metallic in the basecoat is great. I'm just disappointed in the dark shade.(very dark burgundy)

Questions & Answers

Why do we use an activator in your basecoat? This is a 2 stage paint right?

Asked by: John
An activator is your catalyst which will allow the paint to cure. Without the activator, the paint will just lay on the surface. 2 stage paint, refers to Step 1, base coat. Step 2 clear coat. A base coat will dry dull and needs clear coat to make it shine and protect it.

looking at the black cheery pearl base coat paint. picture looks like metalic. Would you recommend this for a newbie- navous? Not sure if it is a pearl-- Thanks

Asked by: Gary
If you have painted before with a spray gun, and your project turned out OK , you should be alright. With any Pearl, or Metallic you would want to apply a clear coat.

Took a chance on this color, because I love black cherry. It's just a tad too dark to me. I can live with it. Is there any way to lighten it up?

Asked by: Sean20
We have never experimented with it, but a couple of drops of our Pure white could help lighten this up.
