bad hardner

Thank's for the info. I bought a new pint of hardner and more paint and it still did it. it all came from the same store, so i went and bought a quart of martin seniour paint and some hardner from another store and it worked fine. I was told that it is the same as sherwin williams, but it didn't mess up. Is their a chance the dimensions hardner could be bad from the company?

definatly possible, the distributor has the responsibility of only buying enough stock as they can sell in a reasonable amount of time and returning what they don't sell. I was a Spies Hecker a few years ago and had the same problem show up, a distributor sold a can of hardener that was 3 years old, we only warrant for 6 months. Also be careful of using hardener from different lines as the concentration of ISO's can be different causing a different mix ratio.

Yeah, be sure if you are going to use the Martin Senour that it is the same line as the S-W you are using it in. Martin Senour and Sherwin Williams are exactly the same, AS LONG AS YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE SAME LINE. So S-W Dimension IS M-S Cross/FIRE. They are not different "lines" but only different "Labels".


So if you are using Cross/FIRE hardener in your Dimension, that will be just fine. The hardener comes off the assembly line exactly the same and the label is all that makes the difference. You may need to find someone who can tell you the exact number cross over. But it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.
