Yes, that would be a "cross linked poly" Not best but OK!

That makes a lot of sense and clears up that for me. If a certain resin is in the toners already, that may not be possible if I understand correctly. The toners on that UTech system for instance are a "Virgin" toner with no particular direction in technology. You add the resins to make it a lacquer, enamel or Polyurethane, right?
Yes, a great idea! But now that ****kins bought them, its probably messed up by now! I meant Sikkens sorry for the error!

Is this like the S-W "Dimension" line? On the same bank you make synthetic enamel, base coat, acrylic enamel, and SS urethane. I found it to be a pretty good system. They have some problems with slow cure times but over all I thought it was pretty user friendly.

But back to the mixing ratios, they really don't mean a whole lot when it comes to determining if they are poly or just urethane because of the different amounts of iso's that "could" be in the hardener right?
************************************************** **
Thats right, want to make a real profit? Take a urethane and make it a 3:1 mix. Now you have 3 gallons of clear instead of 4 and the hardener is diluted with very profitable solvents.
This would pay a lot of bonus to you rich sales people!
