APPLICATION GUIDE - Download Application Guide in PDF format

1. Prepare surface:

A. lf surface is stripped bare, sand with oscillating sander using #180 grit paper, Wash thoroughly with a metal conditioner.

B. lf the existing surface is a factory baked finish in good condition, scuff with #400 sand paper and apply a bleed sealer after applying a Primer-Surfacer. Otherwise, we recommend removing finish down to original surface. (A bleeder-sealer should be used over all primers and other existing finishes)

2. Prime with 3 coats of Primer-Surfacer. Allow 15 minutes drying time between first two coats and 45 minutes after final coat. Sand with #360 grit paper.

3. Mix 3-4 ounces of Microglow to a quart of reduced (one-to-one) Clear Acrylic lacquer, and apply 3 or more coats, depending upon the degree of coverage desired, and alternate spraying direction with each coat. Use 2 ball bearings in cup and hand agitate constantly to keep flake in suspension. Microglow can also be used as a super brilliant ground coat for Candy Apple colors. Alternate spray pattern with each coat to avoid streaking.

SPRAY PATTERN:

First coat      Second coat   Third coat
horiz-arrow

Use a Devilbiss #043 #30, or #306 nozzle or their equivalent to apply flake coats (use 25 lbs. pressure at the gun.) Allow 10 minutes drying time between each coat.

Other Suggested Uses:

Add to any automotive metallic paint for superior brilliance.

Apply over black base. Then apply a candy color to obtain a deep metallic color.

4. Final Finishing:

0ption #1. Apply enough Clear Acrylic to allow for sanding without exposing the Spindrift (14-18 coats suggested.) Allow 10 minutes drying time between coats. After final coat, allow 3 weeks drying time before sanding with #320 grit sand paper using an oscillating sander until all orange peel disappears. All edges and sharp curves must be hand sanded to avoid sanding through to flake. Apply 2 more coats of Clear Acrylic. Allow to dry overnight, then wet-sand with #1000 grit paper, compound with buffing wheel and wax.

0ption #2. Apply enough Clear Acrylic to allow for sanding without exposing the flake (14-18 coats suggested) Allow 10 minutes drying time between coati. After final coat allow 3 weeks drying time before sanding with #320 grit sand paper using an oscillating sander until all orange peel disappears. All edges and sharp curves must be hand sanded to avoid sanding through to flake. Apply 3 coats of catalyzed Crysta-Crylor for "Wet Look".  3 coats of catalyzed Polygloss Clear, allowing 1 hour drying time between first two coats and 4 hours between second and third coats. Do not re-coat-can cause wrinkling and/or lifting.
