Mixing: 1:1 Must be activated with any SPI Clear Coat Activator Add 1 oz of SPI Clear Coat Activator per mixed quart of basecoat Use SPI 870, 885 or 895 Urethane Reducers or 0 VOC reducers in compliant areas
Paint Gun Tip: 1.3 or 1.4
Description: Premium basecoats that are very user friendly, easy to spray and wet sand very well (only if necessary).
SPI basecoat should be reduced only with SPI 870, 885 or 895 Urethane Reducers or 0 VOC reducers in compliant areas for proper adhesion and color control.
SPI basecoat must be activated with any SPI Clear Coat Activator at the rate of 1 ounce per mixed/sprayable quart of basecoat.
Preparation: If typical prepping techniques are used, this basecoat will cover 400 grit sand scratches. SPI basecoat is compatible with any 2K sealer or epoxy primer used as a sealer.
Application: With proper gun adjustment, this base should be sprayed using wet coats.
Insurance type work: Let each coat flash 10-20 minutes before applying the next coat.
Restoration or custom work: Let each coat flash 30-60 minutes between coats.
If sprayed properly two coats should cover and a third coat is sprayed for peace of mind but this will depend on color of substrate/sealer used and basecoat application by the painter.
For insurance work, we recommend the last coat of base flash 30 minutes before applying clear.
For restoration and custom work, we recommend the basecoat sit overnight, then the next morning tack off the base and apply the clear. Allow the clear to flash 30 minutes per coat.
