View Full Version : Deltron DC 3000
05-22-2006, 03:13 PM
I just got done spraying my 1987 Buick Regal with PPG MBP Laser Blue Metallic and 2 coats of PPG Deltron DC 3000 with DC3095 High Temp Hardener... The clear came out ok, just dry in a few places... I am letting the car sit overnight and was wondering if it would be safe to wetsand the spots (With 1200 grit) and buff then polish around 9am, I just got done spraying the clear around 2:30pm... Thanks:p

If the clear doesn't sand dry and leave a white powder dust from sanding you should wait longer. It depends on how much clear is on the car and temperature, etc. Sometimes if you sand too soon you will find that the clear will not sand very well and it will try to what i call "Chew up" with you kind of like a sticky surface does when you sand on it.

The PPG 3000 is a mainly a spot repair clear, it dries fast and it dries hard. I wetsanded and buffed out a spot job in base/clear (spotted the clear also) a couple weeks ago with PPG 3000 after the clear coat set for only 2 1/2 hours.
Thats a room temp with no forced heat. The clearcoat blend buffed with not "halo" (blend line). That some great clear for spot jobs.
Your job should most definately be ready to wetsand and buff in the morning.

Ohhh, I used the 3000 as an Overall Clear... That could have been part of my Dry Spot problems... Would the Deltron DC 4000 be better suited for Overalls? When I pulled the car out into the sun, I found some serious clouding of my Pearlcoat, so I'm going to wetsand the clear, and just spray straight Laser Blue Metallic with no Pearlcoat and Reclear it

Yes, the 4000 is more suited for multiple panels. I sprayed a full size and front bumper cover of a '99 Grand Am SE this afternoon with PPG 4000 and it came out good. Flowed out excellent. It did seem to want to go on grainy (orange peely) but it did flow out with no runs. Apparently a high solids clear.
