HOK clearcoats

I'm gonna be painting with House of Kolor paints. They list acrylic lacquer and urethane enamel clears. Which clearcoat should I use?

I do not use HOK clears, however I have read allot of people love the UC-35... It seems to be the one of choice by those who use it.. It is also a high solids according to the tech sheets... http://www.hokpaint.com/man/UC-35-38.html

Stay away from anything that's a Lacquer based product.
They cure by drying, and shrinking in the process.
This can go on for months. A urethane with hardener actually
cures by chemical reaction and is much more stable and durable.
Lacquer is yesterdays techology that most people don't use anymore.
It's not very durable.

Yea it seems like that's the better choice. Especially since the tech sheet for the acrylics want 5 - 7 coats!

To me 5 to 7 coats aren't enough for lacquer, for better painters
on this forum it may be but if you are going to rub it out ,
lacquer is very thin and it's so easy to sand thru.
It thins 100 to 200 percent so you're not putting on near
as much as you think. And you'll sand half of it off for buffing.

go with the uc 35 its great stuff... its all i use... put 3-4 nice coats on wet sand with 1000 grit then run two to three more wet coats on the car ( over reduce for flow coats its in the tech manual). and look out for the shine once buffed... incredable...... i like perfect it III for buffing seems to work very well its made by 3m.
