Product Overview:

Description

Eastwood Tunnel Ram Gray Metallic Basecoat Paint adds the superior durability of urethane to the ease of conventional basecoats.

  • 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: 10-40 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 luxurious dark gray with warm undertones and a gorgeous 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.

Questions & Answers

When adding a reducer of 10 - 20% to any of the basecoats, Is this in addition, (added on top) of the basecoat mix of 4:1

Asked by: Rick68
When mixing the 4:1 basecoat. The mix ratio is 4 parts of paint to 1 part activator, then if you would like to reduce it you can add up to 1 part of reducer. If the 10/20% ratio will be used that would be 10/20% of the total volume of the mixed paint and activator.

Can this product be utilized as a base for kandy or pearls?

Asked by: Monster69Olds
Yes, the product can be used for a base under Kandy and pearls. If this is something that is going to be tried we would suggest applying this on a test panel to make sure that this is going to be the color that would be something you want to see.

The description says that it's a metallic grey but based on the picture it looks more like a metallic gold. Just wondering if it turns out to be a gold or grey?

Asked by: Farmer72
Unfortunately computer resolution can effect what you are seeing versus the real result. This is a grey finish.

Do i need to purchase clear coat as well for this paint after it been applied? Also i have a 86 chevy an need to know how many gallons to paint truck short wheel base all parts including door jams.

Asked by: Charles
You will need additional clear to coat this base coat color. Generally 2 gallons should cover your vehicle as long as you do not plan on painting inside the bed. You will also need 2 gallons of clear to go with the color.
