    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 Easy to use, great results! Like many of us on this site, first time painting a car... I didn't want my car to look like a trout when I was done, so I was a little concerned about using a metallic paint and getting blotchy results. 2 coats as per instructions and then 1 coat with less air pressure and further distance back to "dust" and "set" the last coat of metallic. Came out great and was not that hard. Pictures show the base only and then the European Clear (not buffed). Paint is really, really slippery in the can (hard to control it pouring), so would highly recommend getting a pouring lid cover to prevent making a mess (ask me how I know...).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Colors don't match I bought one basecoat kit and a week later decided I might need a second gallon in case I ran short which I did. I needed to sand a fender because of fisheye and when I did the colors didn't match, the second batch had more silver in it and wasn't as orange. Now I have a mismatched paint job.. Very unhappy !!!!

    Questions & Answers

    if using 2 gallons of basecoat, is it necessary to mix both gallons together to insure color match??

    Asked by: DanO
    It would be highly advised to do so if the 2 cans had different batch codes. Otherwise, there can be some variations.

    What’s the recommend sanding paper grit to prep the car  with to spray the Malibu sunset over?

    Asked by: Bronco1ab
    You'll want to prep the paint with 400-600 grit to rough the surface up before applying this color.

    The car I’m going to paint is in yellow primer. Will the paint change color if you spray it over the yellow primer or should I put down a gray sealer coat? What’s the best color to paint this paint over?

    Asked by: Bronco1ab
    We would recommend applying the Malibu Sunset over gray Primer. Applying it over black will give you a darker hue. Over yellow will be not as dark.
