SOLVENTS TO REDUCE & CLEAN UP COATING
POSSIBLE CAUSES: Pigment settles over time and gives the appearance of being the wrong color.
SOLUTION: Stir/mix the coating properly. Refer to the product's technical data sheet for mixing instructions.
POSSIBLE CAUSES: Dry spray commonly occurs, as a result of, fluid pressure too low or atomizing air pressure too high on a sprayer, the spray gun too far from the part, dry overspray from adjacent surfaces or the spray gun speed is too fast.
POSSIBLE CAUSES: Humidity, Temperature, Improper Ventilation and Unclean Surfaces can contribute to slow dry times. Other potential causes are (1) Using the wrong amount of "B" component (too much or too little), (2) Insufficient flash-off time between coats, or (3) Incorrect spray technique (coating applied too heavy).
SOLUTION: Refer to the product's technical data sheet to determine: the appropriate application conditions, surface preparation instructions, the proper coating mix ratio, film thickness recommendation and the appropriate flash-off time between coats.
POSSIBLE CAUSES: Using too little coating is often the cause of sheen issues since it prohibits or impedes the correct flow and level of the coating.
SOLUTION: Refer to the product's technical data sheet to determine the appropriate solvent to reduce/thin the coating and clean application equipment.
