one of my old ppg tech manuals has k36 in it. it was in the kondar days. this manual is from around 84 .
Rusty -I am a hot rod shop out of GA and have used PPG for over 30 years with no real problems till lately. The DP epoxy line that we have all used forever is failing me, before the LF or lead free label hit the can it would stick to plate glass around probably around 1998 after that it had to have more cure time before top coat which as of late is at least 24 hrs. But now even at that will pull loose from sandblasted metal, bondo, plastics and sanded metal. I'm even seeing cars at shows where this seems to be a problem any one else experience this as well ???
I just found this forum. I would love to talk to you about your issues with PPG. I have a very expensive show car where the paint has been coming off in sheets due to PPG and DP90 failure. Please give me a call to discuss if you don't mind. My number is 205-263-5102. I'm in Birmingham, Alabama.I agree the DP isn't what it used to be. and the Omni 2k is not what it should be. I've had several failures from it on different vehicles. Most of which were evidenced by the paint comming off in sheets, and the primer beneath being powdery. I don't use it anymore.
I've had failure with Omni 2K PPG rep paid for the re-do. Paint comming off in sheets, with powder primer residue on it. Car had not even left the shop yet. Hadda strip, and re-prime, with something else. I chose to use Slick Sand on the second go 'round, paint has held up now for about 10 years.I don't use urethane primers very much so when I did I just ran down and got a quick qt of omini 2k it seemed like pretty good stuff to me, that is until I saw how bad it shrank on a black truck I did. It looked great for a while, only it seems to shrink for months but very slowly, after a year or two its pretty noticeable.(if that makes any sense). I had to toss the omini 2k primer and chalk up another one as junk not to buy. I should have known better but my guy that delivers my materials doesn't have qts just gallons of primer and about a qt got wasted because it was just too thick to use after a while. Now I take the time to clean the top of the can and seal the primer up well so it lasts longer.
