Finish 1 FC720 clear

Has anyone ever used this clearcoat ? Ive just sprayed some and no matter what i tryed it wouldn't lay on worth a dam. I used the FH612 hardener for 70-90 F temp and spray psi between 10 and 40 to see what psi worked best and none did. The best part of the whole thing was when in a tight spot i had to spray about 3" from the fender with a few runs. Yes i followed the tec sheet to the t and used a 1.3 tip. The clear just would not smooth out, what was i doing wrong?

I just got done spraying some Finish 1 clear coat today, and it doesn't work very good at all with me either. Even my LPH 400 can't atomize this clear worth anything... it just orange peels like crazy.

Anyways, there is a solution to this. Wait for the clear coat to cure, sand it down with 600 to 1500 grit sandpaper. Sand it like your going to buff it, but shoot another coat on it, and it should lay on smooth as glass. Yes, I'm not so sure it's the quickest or best way to get a very good mirror finish, but it works for me.

We use this clean in our shop and on a job I sprayed I got crazy solvent pop. It was my first time spraying the clear and I sprayed like I have sprayed clear before. I also spray for a lph400 but with a 1.4 tip. Long story short I was laying coats on to thick. But our head painter uses it a lot and he clears with really high pressure, real close to panel and moves real quick and he uses a lph400 with a 1.3 and it lays out really great for him. Guess you just need to learn it.

I use this stuff all the time and never ran into any problems except since it is thinner then most other clears it can run a lot easier. But then again cutting and buffing this clear is a huge pain.

I mainly use a Sata Jet 3000 and its worked fine for me. I have an LPH-400 that also worked good for spraying it. Now the thing I like about this clear coat is that every time I have sprayed it, it hardly has any orange peel to it. The key to spraying it is just watch your gloss and hit those flash times just right.

I use 4 different clears at my work all the time

FC720 - I like the way it looks and its fast
MC270 - Slower flash time but your able to get thicker coats on without running it
DC3000/4000 (depending on if I need it done quick or not) - For higher end jobs.

I've sprayed several gallons of the Finish 1 clears and have no complaints. Did the front end of my in-laws PT Cruiser and over a year later it died back minimally and holds up to chips quite well. Even sprayed some this morning. Don't have much of a problem with it laying down.... nothing that nibbing with 1000 grit and a light overall with a soft pad and 1500 grit can't handle. After that it looks like factory (on collision work that is).

I did spray Omni MC161, but then my paint guy wanted me to try Shop Line JC630. never could get the orange pill out of the MC161, but the Shop Line JC630 layed down with very little orange pill. Here is some pics. I also use the purple gun from Harbor Freight to spray my clear.

finish 1 FC720 clear

My first time posting on this forum. Just found it yesterday. I have sprayed a good many cheaper clears oer the last few years and i believe i like the finish 1 better than any. I have probably sprayed 20 to 25 gallons of it so far. I have a carlot and spray all my lot cars that have damage with it. What i like the most is how clear it is and harldy ever needs to be buffed. I spray with a sharp T1 titanium compliant gun with 45 to 50 psi. Hardly ever any dry spots or soak up next day like the other cheaper clears.
I also have had good luck out of limco clear coat with about 15 to 20 percent reducer and it lays out smooth just like the finish 1.
