Very good point!

A lot of people get hung up on the mixing ratio not knowing that manufacturers play all kinds of games with solvents in the products to MAKE any mixing ratio they want for MARKETING purposes.

Get a quality product and use it following the tech sheets, that is all you need to know!

read the post instead of making up what you want to see. nowhere did i say to change a mix of hardner. but regardless of what it is it has to be at a sprayable viscosity . which is about the most important thing when it comes to mixing paint.

Easy! Sorry if you feel like I stepped on you toes. I'm only on here to share my 22 years of experience. I'm a little opinionated... I suggest keeping those toes tucked. I sinserely did not mean any offense. Just thought your technical talk may be confusing to some readers.

As I said in my post and always. I just speak from my experience. And going back to the 80's when I was shooting activated acrylic enamel and right up to today, always mix to the manufacturers data sheet and you will not go wrong. They have tested their product and know what works best. Any deviation will yield less than ideal results....Allan

And there is nothing wrong with mentioning that again. Some people can't see that there are people who don't know these things and it's good to make it clear.
