Is it necessary to use paint strainers, and if so is 60/70 mesh OK for the epoxy?
I bought some of these strainers but they also had some that were around 120 mesh I think?.........I just figured the higher the number the higher the strand count in the mesh so a lower number would probably work better with a thicker paint.
The HVLP gun I will be using has a 1.4 tip on it so will the epoxy shoot through this OK and will it shoot better if I do use the reduce? I know it says to reduce it as much as 20% for sealer but if I just wanted to thin it a little what if I just used 10% reducer? wold that be better than using the full 20%? I know some of ya were saying not to use it.
One last thing, I am going to say that if I am using 32oz of primer/catalyst + 20% reducer (6.4oz) = 38.4oz correct? or just the 10% would be 3.2oz reducer.
