As far as I'm aware of Boeing did not play a part in developing Imron, it has always been a DuPont product.

Imron has become a generic trade name for a number of DuPont paints. Lately however Dupont seems to be capitalizing on the name Imron as it now has a line of automotive paints that carry the trade name DuPont� Imron� Elite Express, which are just two component urethane. Make no mistake, it is not the Imron of old, or the industrial Imron.

I am more guilty than Most about this
But I do wonder Why poeple ask for opinion about changing the mixing ratios
when it comes to paint
I still feel a beginner should always follow the tech sheet

So I should not admit to using lacqure thinner to reduce Urethane base on the cheap...
