Basecoat Stabilizer

My DuPont and Sherwin Williams basecoat stabilizers both show the exact
same ingrediants, So why aren't they interchangeable?
If they both list the same ingrediants wouldn't they have to be compatible?
Doesn't the stabilizer just evaporate away after painting leaving only
the basecoat?

They have a resin in them that doesn't evaporate. All I know is, why? You certainly could mix a lot of different brand products without a problem, but why?

NO, NO & NO again!!!!!

Not everything must be shown on a label or MSDS sheet.
They are totally different, way different. Never replace a basecoat blender with S$W or Dupont. Peeling will happen.

Other bases, use any urethane reducer you want and it will work fine.
Only other exception is the reactive reducer from PPG but that line has either gone or is going away. All that reducer is is urethane reducer with about 5% hardener in it, so you can make your own.

MARTINSR:
Reason I ask is because I switched over to the DuPont line about 2 years
ago and I have a couple of gallons of the Sherwin Williams base reducer
left over. I would love to use it up. Guess I could go back to S/W for
some of my small repairs and buy their base but I sure would like to be
able to get to where I have all one product line.
Right now I have several different brands of base and their reducers
I plan on using them for graphics in the future.
I'm just curious to why they wouldn't be compatible.
Thanks.

For one reason Dupont uses a proprietary acid in theirs that is set up to be a bomb if you don't use it. (clear won't stick)

It will spray and dry fine.

Thanks BarryK & Martinsr. Please don't be offended by my questions,
I'm not challenging your knowledge, I have the highest respect for your
info. I am just trying to better understand these products.
I am learning a lot from this forum and it's been fun learning new
products and procedures. I have been painting a lttle for a long time.
When I learn enough to have "mastered" it I probably wil be bored
and quit. I don't see that ever happening, but with your help
I know I'm getting better. And besides, people ask me things all the time,
I don't want to know just the right way but also why it's the right way.
Stay tuned for more questions, I'm full of them.
(full of something anyway) :-)
