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.

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

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

Can I put metallic flakes in hugger orange paint on my 69 Chevy C10

Asked by: Tomcat 88
Yes you can put metallic flakes in your Chevy Orange paint. To improve the visual effect of the metallic flake it is recommended to put the flake in a clear coat such as Eastwood Intercoat Clear (15678ZPA) and spray over your Chevy orange.

Asked by: Aklutz
The paint is not reduced already, we would recommend reducing up to 10%.

I have a gallon of your hugger orange single stage and I painted my car with your 2 stage hugger.. can I touch up with single stage and clear coat without having to buy another gallon of 2 stage hugger?? Will it match cuz there is a spot on the door and d

Asked by: 69rsss69
You should be able to touch up with the single-stage hugger orange on an area where you sprayed the Basecoat just make sure to scuff before spraying. Also, spray a test piece to make sure the color is not off due to different batch numbers prior to applying on the vehicle.

hi im new at this going to try and paint my 72 changer rally its hemi orange {ev2} how close is this hugger orange #13558zpa to this color and yr saying i need 2 gallons of paint and 2 gallons of clear to do this and what activator do u recommend

Asked by: big guy
As for how close the color will be to your Hemi Orange, we do not color match, however it does look close. Each gallon of paint will take 1 QT of activator. and depending on the clear you go with, they mix 2:1 and that would be 2 QTs. of activator to 1 gallon of clear, or 4:1 so 1 qt of activator to 1 gallon of clear.

What kind of primer needs to be used before adding the basecoat? Thanks.

Asked by: Caleb
Bare minimum we recommend using our Epoxy primer to seal the surface and prepare for paint. You could also used a Urethane primer surfacer after the epoxy to allow you to block sand the panels nice and straight prior to paint.
