I'm renewing/painting my pressure washer and using an old unused QT of TCPGlobal Hotrod Flatz Daytona Blue Pearl that is waaay past it's due date. It finally shook/stirred to the point where it looks like paint, I'm gonna shoot it tomorrow over some (also old) SPI epoxy that went on today. The TCP tech sheet says nothing about top-coating it with clear, but I'm not really a fan of "flat" paint. I've got some fairly new TCPG clear coat that I'd love to spray over the "Flatz", but there's no info on how.
MIX ONLY WHEN READY TO SPRAY! Mix ratio is 4 parts
HRF color with 1 part KH211 or KH212 hardener. Mix only
enough material to apply (2) wet coats. Additional KR
Urethane Reducer should be added up to 1 pint per
gallon. VOC mixed at 4:1:1/2 will be <2.8 lb/gal.
VISCOSITY: Viscosity of the mixed product as supplied is
approximately 14-15 seconds in a #2 Zahn cup at 77
POT LIFE: Pot life for the mixed components is
approximately 5 hours at 77 degrees F The pot life will
shorten at higher temperatures.
Apply 1 wet coat of HRF color. Wait approximately 10-15
minutes for flash time, then follow with another wet coat.
FLUID TIP: 1.4mm at 10PSI at the aircap for HVLP guns.
40-45 PSI at the gun for conventional spray guns.
Dust-Free 20-30 Minutes
Hard Dry Overnight
Full Cure 7 days
Force Dry Flash-off time – 15 minutes
My plan is to wait an hour after the blue flashes (air temp will be ~ 90°) , then shoot the clear. I've done this TCPG clear before over rattle can stuff and it does fine. Any pros/cons to this?
