2k Epoxy - thinning

I'm going to use one of those Preval Sprayers to cover some bare metal with 2k epoxy. Can I use acetone to thin it a little? or maybe use some paint thinner?

I've used Acetone in cold weather and it works well. You shouldn't shoot 2k in weather below 55 degrees. The warmer the weather the faster the acetone flashes out.

I've also used a slow urethane reducer. it allows the 2k to flow out smooth and flashes off at a good rate like you would want with a sealer.

Definitely get some of the proper reducer for that and use it...Just asking for issues by playing chemist..Check with your jobber or supplier..
