Possible to reduce shopline clears?
Goodmorning, I was considering ppg shopline clears because they are cost effective. I have use ppg 2002 (non-shopline). Though it's a fine clear it is very expensive.
I was specifically looking at shopline clear JC620 and JC781. Does anyone have any experience with these clears?
The spec sheet does not list a reducer. It lists hardner, and additives. I guess the additives are in the form of flexer and fish eye remover. I like the ability of reducing my clears to help in flow. Has anyone reduced shopline clears? and if so with what? and how much reduction?
Thanks in advance,
If you have a nice gun that is adjusted good,you shouldnt need reducer.The finish is much nicer without it,unless it calls for it in the mix.However,i have used a splash of reducer in clear.It's a fine line between if it helps flow out,and then becomeing too much and getting die back,shrinkage.:o
I agree with Chris, adding reducer where it doesn't belong can cause a dull finish. Some paint products have reducer and activator together and mixing the activator with the clear will make it the proper viscosity for spraying. As Chris mentioned a good gun will help insure a smoother finish.
Thanks for the info. I've decided not to reduce if not called for, no need to jepordize the integrity of the shine.
