I don't like the idea of using additives especially accelerators....would that be rocket you are using ? If you want the paint to flash off quicker I'd try raising the temperature of your booth area before you start painting and possibly warm your panels up first.

I find that tacking off can just move the dust around the panel rather than removing it so I always blow off at the same time with a low pressure air line.

Hi Dav UK
I raised room temp and it helped a little but I then worked on gun settings on a new Devilbiss SRI Pro: far less overspray and better lay on. (would a Sata minijet have even less overspray?)
Also Moved to Glasurit 68 line which seems to lay on much better.
70% there!
Are your bad thoughts on rocket regarding gloss reduction over time or general longevity/stability?


Thanks very much for your advice.

Graham
