Make sure your model is free of contamination (oil,
grease, dirt, etc.). Use K&B thinner on a clean
paper or cloth towel to wipe model clean.
2. Use a tack rag to remove dust before using primer
on your model.
3. Apply one light tack coat of primer, let tack dry
10-15 minutes then apply one flow coat of primer. This
should give you ample coverage, let dry 12 hours minimum.
28-35 PSI is recommended for air pressure on all spraying.
4. Sand primer with 320 first then 400 grit sand paper
(3M Production, RN fre-cut, gold paper
sheets work well).
5. Before you start painting with colors, follow steps
one and two again.
6. Apply color coats by following step 3. If you have
any areas that can e seen through after you have sprayed your
tack coat and flow coat, you can spot spray those areas only
if applied within 15 minutes after your flow coat. After the
last coat, the paint will flow out and gloss up after about
30 minutes. Allow 6 to 24 hours to dry, depending on temperature
7. If painting more than one color, use a high quality
vinyl tape to mask with (such as flex mask). Scuff area to
be painted with 600 grit sand paper or light course scotchbrite,
8. Ultrapoxy has a high gloss quality, as if you had
sprayed a clear coat over it. You may want to pull the tape
after your flow coat (final coat), up to 30 minutes after
to achieve a smoother paint line or edge.
9. A number of spray guns can be used for spraying Ultrapoxy.
Most touch-up guns work well. Also, with the correct tip,
Ultrapoxy spray's very well with most airbrushes. Again, we
have found 28 to 35 pounds of air pressure to be best for
10. Ultrapoxy normally can be sprayed without reducing.
If temperatures are in the 90's or above, then reducing could
be necessary 10-30 percent. If you feel you have too much
orange peel, you can sand he surface with 600 wet, and reshoot
the surface again with the color reduced with super poxy thinner.
